Instructions for Use
- Unpack your Repose Fire Logs by pulling each log out of the others. Remove the stands and set aside.
- Fill each Fire Log with compressed wood pellets. An insignificant amount of small “crumbs” may fall through the openings in the wires.
- Select the spot for your campfire and clear the area of any debris that may catch fire (it is a good idea to select a flat surface of sand or stone).
- Set the Fire Logs on the stands that are a part of your Repose Fire Log Package, in a pattern that will allow for air flow around the Logs.
- Use a fire starter or twisted clump of newspapers placed under the Logs to start the fire. Light when ready (a fireplace lighter is recommended to keep your hands away from open flame).
- Allow the fire to blaze – it will light the pellets in the Logs and they will begin to burn.
- Use the Repose Fire Wand (included in Deluxe Package or purchased separately) to move the Logs if necessary. You can burn just one or two at a time, adding the reserved Log when the fire burns down. The Wand can be used to remove a burned Log from the fire, setting it aside to cool, refilling it again and adding it back onto the fire to prolong the burning time.
- Allow the fire to burn down naturally and for the Fire Logs to cool. Traditional campfires produce large coals that can take quite a while to cool down, even up to 24 hours. Pellets in the Repose Fire Logs burn completely, leaving little ash and no coals to pose unattended fire hazards. They cool very quickly. You can then shake the remaining ash from the Logs and use them again or stack them for storage until the next “REPOSE”. Your Fire Logs will take on a colorful “patina” after being used. This is not harmful to the Logs. However, they can be cleaned with soap and water to remove “soot”.
Tips for Use
- Repose Fire Logs burn hot enough, and long enough to cook your favorite campfire foods. Whether on a stick or raised grill over the logs. Grills can be used to cook or hold the logs themselves.
- Repose Fire Logs are hand crafted of stainless steel. Be careful of any wire ends that may be sharp.
- Keep wood pellets very dry as moisture will make them swell and burn inefficiently or not at all.
- There are many different manufacturers and distributors of wood pellets. Check your local fireplace or woodstove store, hardware store or consult the internet.
- Hardwood pellets with no additives, waxes or chemicals are best if you intend to cook over the Fire Logs.
- Be certain that you check your local laws for requirements on fire burning permits and heed warnings about “no burn” periods where fire burning is not recommended. Also be sure that children and pets keep a safe distance from the fire when it’s in use. Always have a fire extinguisher or water source available and never leave your fire unattended.
