Attempted to get some smokeless coals to light in the Fire Trough without any kindling. It wasn't very successful.
London December 2020
Erika decorated this cake she had for breakfast (yes, cake for breakfast).
Attempting to get the smokeless coals to light without using any kindling (because it tends to create smoke). I had naively hoped that because the Fire Trough allowed the coals to draw air from underneath that it might be more successful.
Alas on each attempt whatever I used as a firelighter just burned through but the coals never really got going.
Tried with both a standard firelighter block and the FireDragon blocks, but same thing either way.
It was looking briefly promising but back to the drawing board I guess!
