Question:

How do I use newspaper to help ignite a fire?

Kindling

Take pieces of newspaper and roll them into a long cylindrical shape. Tie the ends in a knot. Place the knots on the fuel grate and cover with twigs or wood scraps. Mound 5-8 coals on top and carefully ignite the newspaper knots. As the coals ignite, add more (15-20) coals. When all coals are hot, use tongs to spread them out evenly over the grate.
