Top Down Fire Steps:
1. Step One: Begin with the biggest pieces of firewood and begin stacking them from the bottom of the firebox up.
2. Step Two: Next, transitioning from large pieces to smaller pieces. Stack the smaller pieces perpendicular to the larger pieces. Top the stack with wood kindling alternating from parallel to perpendicular stacking for best airflow. Again, please refer to the video for a demonstration. Add dried wood chips to the top of the kindling.
3. Step Three: Important Note: Never stack the wood above the fireplace opening.
