Also found these. Might be a nice addition to an emergency fire starting kit

should be relatively easy to fabricate something similar IF youcan locate an old bun warmer at a thrift store or ebay for a fraction of the weight.

I saw the charcoal online also for a couple bucks each..as long as you buy 25,000 units... :lol: Funny they seem to be sold only in Europe and made in Asia..Appears a lot of companies are making those "charcoal" modules(coconut shells or husks or other compressed products).One interesting thing was a machine to make them that was for sale..or for making your own briquettes.Maybe someone out there has a hydraulic press and a piece of pipe(or mold) for trying to make their own(say maybe out of wood pellets)that would fit small wood stoves...Hmm..I wonder who I'm thinking about that might wanna try that... :roll:

;) ...... :lol:

Toxic, toxic, and more toxic :D Too many toxic things in our society :?

Many backpacking stoves on the market create charcoal. The "Beaner" stove comes to mind. The designer says to bury the charcoal when finished. Some say grind it into the earth with your foot. In Asia they save it and make fuel out of it. :D
