ine cones are a fantastic and efficient way to start a fire and they can burn for a long time without any other kind of fuel. However, to get a roaring campfire started, it is important to light the cones on a bed of tinder that includes a mixture of grass, pine needles, moss, small twigs and even dead leaves. The good news is that these items can be moist and still do the job of feeding a growing fire. Pine cones produce a small amount of oils that get released once ignited, and this will coat the moist items and create a flammable surface that will help the fire to spread.
The best way to use pine cones as a fire starter is to treat them with a liquid fuel or wax. Due to their ability to absorb liquids, you can pour some kerosene, lighter fluid or even rubbing alcohol on the cones and use that as your ignition fuel. However, they pose a fire hazard as well as release toxic fumes during storage, which can be a problem if not kept in a well-ventilated and cool area.
