Perfect! Now use your hatchet to chop these into finger sized pieces. (Do not hold the wood with your fingers while you chop, else you get bloody finger tips.) Put them in a TLUD stove, boil a pot of potatoes, make a dozen hard-boiled eggs, and some hot water. When the flames go out, you will have only glowing charcoal in the stove, which is dumped out into a container with an air-tight lid. Lacking that, dump it into a pail of water, and then dry the charcoal out later by laying it on a sidewalk or hunk of tin in the hot sun. Save this charcoal. All Gasifiers need charcoal. They either make it on the fly, or in the case of the Simple-Fire, just use it as is.
