Paper Briquiettes

Recommended Posts

What do you guys think of this paper briquiette maker?




Are they a good idea. In our home, we seem to be throwing away so many mags, newspapers and envelopes and junk-mail. Do they burn well? Any thoughts or anybody with any experience of them? Cheers.


I've tried similar (straw) briquiettes and never found them to burn particularly well.


I don't think paper would be any better, certainly not without an accelerant like wax or parrafin.


In fact paper burns particularly poorly without plenty of oxygen. Try chucking a "Yellow Pages" directory on your fire and see how warm you get!
