Firebombs, at least the ones I make, are not bombs. They have a similar shape to a stick of dynamite, so I guess that’s how they got the name. Nonetheless, they do make an excellent firestarter in the home and the woods.
I actually started making these many years ago as gifts to friends for their fireplaces and as an emergency firestarter for my family if I was out of town and they needed heat from the fireplace. Some of my recipients asked where I bought them they were so impressed. Well the good news is they are very inexpensive to make and an easy project.
