A fire rod and a stick of this fat wood = best fire starter kit.

I have nothing but great things to say about this product. I use 2 or 3 of the sticks to get a fire started in my wood stove no need for newspaper. So a box last a very long time. Love this product.!!!!!!

I spent the last 20 minutes lighting and relighting two pieces of your fatwood. It pains me to write a poor review on this product. But the truth is it will not light up without alot of work, and fatwood is not suppose to be that way. It arrived without a problem. It was the 35lb box like I ordered. But that is all the good I can say about this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lola72 Works Great!
Wow! This stuff is awesome! If you do it right you can ignite damp split hard wood with 4 little pieces. I was a skeptic at first, but have no problem paying for this kindling.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bearcat9 Great Fatwood
I used fatwood many years ago and I had forgotten about it until recently. I searched the internet and checked out many different websites. I ended up on L.L. Bean. I read the reviews and compared prices and decided to order the 25 pound box.
Since I have received the fatwood I've started a few fires with it in my fireplace and it works great! I've had to use only one stick to start my fires. No paper or anything else but the fatwood. I'm sold with the quality and especially the price compared to other sellers. I couldn't find a better price anywhere. That place for prime members gets $20.00 for a 10 pound box. I'd much rather pay $35.00 for a 25 pound box! I highly recommend the Fatwood from L.L. Bean!

Rated 4 out of 5 by PaulinMontana Best source of fatwood I've found
In the past, I've collected my own fatwood (pitchwood), which can be quite a chore. in 2013, this product was recommended by a friend. I was thrilled with the convenience and quality.
In 2014, we reordered a bigger box for our two stoves. As has been noted in other reviews, the 2014 quality was far below par. The pieces were thicker, and lacked in sufficient resins.
I'm ordering again this year after reading L.L.Bean's response that they were working with their vendor to assure future quality. I hope that the box this year matches the quality in 2013, and look forward to its arrival.

Have been using this product for the past 5 years and had ZERO issues. Starts fires quickly - burns hot and for a decent amount of time.
Use about 7 pieces for each fire. Spread the fatwood in even spaces across the inside width of the stove. Add a little small kindling and newspaper to help create a nice bed of flame and within 5 minutes, have a nice roaring fire. Highly recommend this product - very easy to use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by NewburyLady Works very well!
My sister was raving about this product so we decided to try it; so glad we did!! Really helps to start up the fire in our woodburner which we use to heat 3/4 of our home.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Adirondacker19 Great product!!
This product is superior to any other one on the market. You only have to use a couple of pieces to get a roaring fire going. I have even used this product while camping to burn unseasoned wood and it kept that fire burning nicely and was able to get it started easily :) . I have had one bad batch but when I called the company they had another boxed shipped right to be for free!!! Great product and AWESOME customer service!!!!! A+++++
