I found this picture on the internet while doing a Google search on cutting logs. You cut slices down the log like cutting a pie leaving a small hole down the middle of the log. Stuff the hole with some paper, kindling and lighter fluid get the inside of the log burning then put a cast iron skillet on top.

Would be great fun for camping.

edit:
I guess they’re also called Swedish candles or hobo stoves.

My psychotherapist said that I’m fine and that I’ll probably never do what I did in that clock tower again as long as I stay on my medication.

EMMA – No, no, no. I ment the person who is doing great harm to the logs on TouTube is outa their minds.

By the way, my medication must be the same as yours, as I haven’t been in any clock towers lately. ;o))

Yes you’re going to find a completely different taste, a taste that you will never find in a house or restarant cooking.
Good good taste.

i have problems starting a fire with kindling. I could net get a log on fire. (unless it was in the middle of my shop, I was grinding metal, and didn’t want it to burn)

That looks like a very hot way to cook on a hot summer day. Might be okay in the winter though.

It’s all good till somebody gets hurt, it in this case till the log collapses and your meal spills on the floor.
