so im having a bonfire tonight with some friends to kick off the summer. how do i build it so the flames are high and it burns long? i think i remember the log cabin burns longest, and teepee burns highest and is hotter. does anyone have a way to build it so itll be high(at least for a while) and burn really long?

i have probably a 5 foot diameter pit. what if i used a bunch of napalm? any ideas would be helpful

Don't use acceleratant, too many risks. Use dead wood (obviously) start off slow, build up. Common stuff, really.

well, you could get an empty pop can, spray it full of bug repellant, duct tape it closed so its airtight and throw it in the fire. and then crush it with a stick. other than that i dont hav any ideas for a fire. good luck tho

im not stupid that would just explode and get flaming liquid everywhere. i know everything destructive to do with fire ive pretty much done it all. lol im gonna start this fire by throwing a molotov cocktail into it.(yes there are rocks around the pit so the bottle will break, and its all dirt so nothing will catch on fire besides the wood)

yea... i'd go with the napalm... and then you can use water to put it out

set up the teepee style with lots of seasoned (dead and dry) wood. adding dry leaves and cardboard and paper and **** like that will definitely help start it.

just dont use too much starter fluid. if you use a lot, start it with a roman candle like in Joe Dirt....

breathing in napalm fumes sucks. i coughed for like 15 minutes straight. just use some gas or something if you really need to

Fart on it repeatedly.

i like the napalm idea, my friend made homemade napalm using styrofoam and gasoline, but that takes a day or so.

put all the firestarters at the bottom of the tipi, then put bigger sticks on the higher you go. light it at the bottom and BAM! fuego.

uh how about no to all of the above ideas.

Start off with a lot of small twigs, the more the better. Pack some crumpled up newspaper underneath that. Then stack logs like a log cabin sort of thing over that. Light the paper and let it burn.

Remember, you cannot have too many little twigs.

Actually you hadn't posted when I wrote that, so I hadn't read it.

but you did suggest firestarters and only girlscouts and wimps use firestarters/lighter fluid/anything other than wood, paper and matches to start their fires.

Don't use distortion pedals. Just bury your guitar for three weeks, and then dig it up, that should do the job.

I'm an Eagle Scout, and I use firestarters. I win. quickly. easily.
and tipis are good, yet you classified that as a bad idea.
refrain from wide sweeping statements, you suck at them.

Probably already been mentioned, but anyway...

For the love of Jesus Tapdancing Christ, don't burn treated wood. You'd be surprised how many people do this. Some dumbasses a year ahead of me this past year did at a bonfire, and about a half dozen of them start throwing up blood.

Just douse a pile of wood with gasoline and then fire a roman candle at it.

Worked for me.

Build the core with heavy wood then cover over it with smaller/thinner branches. So really just a stockpile of stuff with preferably the majority of heavy wood. You know like old furniture, just no thin wood as it burns up to quick. Then just cover it up with branches as i said because it starts the wood which can be difficult to light otherwise.Also use some but NOT alot of Charcoal lighter fluid/other accelerant. As simple as that. Coming from a guy that has been building bonfires since he was 6.
