I have to wood burning stoves and I have been using fire gel which is costly. I was looking for an alternative. These gel packs store better then the big bottles of fire gel. I put in 6 logs into the stove and put 1 EZ Gel firestarter pack on top of the logs. I light it and I am guaranteed a blazing fire in about 15 minutes. No more squeezing red gel all over the logs and my carpet. I have not used camping yet but I keep one in my car's emergency pack. Wonderful product.
