The Swiss way of firing wood is an energy-efficient way of firing that leads to cleaner combustion with less smoke and faster ignition. The outdoor cooking stoves of the VUUR LAB. you can easily light with this easy ignition method.
This new method of firing is also called Upside-down fire or Top-down lighting method.
It is built according to the reverse order compared to traditional fire lighting.
Below is the roadmap
1. For the Swiss method, you need different sizes of firewood: in the VUUR LAB. outdoor cooking stove, it is best to work with smaller logs and kindling, additionally kindling pine cones or lumber.
2. Build the fire by first laying down the larger pieces of firewood on the grid in the outdoor cooking stove. Lay them parallel to each other to form a large square. Leave enough space in between for oxygen and there should also be room for the firelighters that you will later place in between. Do not spread the firewood too far apart because it should not collapse.
3. Build the second layer with the slightly smaller pieces of firewood. Then lay them at right angles to the larger pieces. Leave enough space here. Keep stacking layers until you run out of small pieces of wood.
4. Then place kindling crosswise on top and form a square.
5. Place some firelighters between the structure.
6. Light firelighters with a long match or long lighter. The first layer will then catch fire fairly quickly with minimal smoke.
