It's a truth universally acknowledged that on cold, snowy nights, life offers no sweeter pleasure than the warm glow of a wood-burning fireplace. To live the dream this winter, you'll obviously need firewood, and plenty of it. But you'll also need kindling. Some people refuse to pay for kindling, knowing there are woods full of sticks out there. For everyone else, there's Fatwood. By the way it burns, you'd think it was soaked in kerosene, but no—all-natural Fatwood contains no additives. The secret to its success? It's made from the highly resinous, highly flammable stumps of common pine trees. Available at Amazon; $43.12.
