- Place two RUF type briquettes at the back, angled towards each other
- Add a couple of Hotmax in front and a Waxling firelight in the centre.
- Light the Waxling and place a small Hotmax on top.
- Once the Hotmax are burning well, gently place a longer burning briquette on top; e.g. Pini-kay, Nestro or another RUF.
These instructions are for an average size stove (5-7kw) or open fire. If your grate is too small for the suggested arrangement of briquettes, just use fewer as required, for example, use one RUF Oak instead of two. Hardwood Cobs can be replaced with Hotmax, which are an excellent alternative.
Once your fire is going, turn the air flow down a little and, after an hour or so, add half a briquette of your choice, such as a Beech Nestro, Pini-Kay or Blazers.
