How does a Modern 60 fire bowl work?
Lighting the Modern 60 fire bowl is very simple. First of all, it is important to place the fire bowl in a safe place with a flat surface, away from flammable objects. Once this is done, the adventure can begin. First put some kindling and some Barbecook lighter cubes on the bottom of the fire bowl and light them using the extra long matches or lighter. Then build a pyramid with about 5 logs. It is best to work with pieces of beech or oak to create an even heat. Oak and beech burn for a long time and give beautiful flames. It is important that your wood is dry. If this is not the case, the wood hisses in your fire, gives hardly any heat and causes dark smoke. Then make sure that the wind is right to stir up the fire in your fire bowl. Also blow some air through your fire regularly. Under no circumstances use a liquid fuel such as methylated spirits; this is life-threatening. Once your fire is burning, the trick is to maintain it and keep it at the same temperature. You do this by adding logs in the places where it glows less.
