Assemble your fire grate, bricks on the floor metal tray on top to collect ash and the fire basket on top
Place some kindling in the basket to make a base so stuff doesnt fall through. (Spectators should ensure of a full glass of wine at this point)
Place a couple of pieces of char cloth on the grass and strike firmly the Firestone to cause sparks to land on cloth. (no char cloth or firestone? Use matches!)
Gather the smouldering grass and blow until it catches.
Try not to burn yourself with the burning grass
Place the burning grass into the fire basket.
Assemble some kindling on top taking care not to smother flames. A gentle blow can help things along (or firelighters)
Finally add some small logs. If you have any part burnt logs from the night before use those too as they burn well.
The more logs you add the better the fire! Go grab a beer and some marshmallows.
Camp fires best are enjoyed with a beer. Starring Kris Purdy a fire starting virgin who needed to start a fire to tick off a '30 things to do by 30'
