Repose Fire Logs; the firewood alternative

We would like to introduce Repose Fire Logs LLC. Repose Fire Logs are the only reusable fire log, they are welded stainless steel mesh fire logs proudly handcrafted in the state of Maine. The logs are a way to utilize wood pellets as an alternative solution to a traditional wood campfire. Each log can be used repeatedly due to the stainless steel construction of the logs. Fill each log with compressed wood pellets any time you want a campfire.

This is a brilliant idea...one could use charcoal or plain ol' wood chips too, (depending on what's available) I presume.

I do s'pose caution should be exercised as to type of fuel if one's going to cook over them...check fuel labels, folks!

Here's wishing you the best of luck in your endeavor.

Thank you . I think there may be 4 logs in the second picture . I have been told that the pellet have no binders they are all wood that when compressed they heat the lignans of the wood and thats what binds them.

I think it's a great idea, particularly in this day and age of invasive species. We usually can't bring our own firewood anywhere, any more, since we have Emerald Ash Borer in the neighborhood.

How quickly do the pellets burn, relative to solid wood? I'd think you'd go through pellets pretty quickly in an open fire pit.

Hello Patti, they are both. I make nesting sets of 4 that fit inside each other that are filled from the end and I make open sided sets that can be filled while still on the fire. The top log in the fourth picture is open sided, but they are not nesting sets yet so they do take up more room. I also make custom logs of different sizes. Hello Doug the fire lasts about 45 minutes with a good flame, then there are coals that you can cook over or you can take a log or two off and refill put them back on the logs with coals and within minutes they will catch fire and burn for another half hour or more depending on the log size . You can burn one log at a time or all 4 . It is a very dependable fire, pretty much always the same so you can have a fire that will fit the time you have , or you can do a Repose blast and sprinkle pellets on top and around and you will have a beautiful 5-15 minute brilliant fire and can be done repeatedly. Thank you for you interest . Brian

I'm trying to envision how I'd stow these away after use without getting ash all over the storage area. Will they come with anything we can put them into?

Hello Mike they don't come with anything besides the box they are shipped in but after your fire give them a little shake and tap them together and and the ashes are gone , they could be washed to get any soot off and wrap them in newspaper or put them back in the shipping box. The logs don't hold ashes . Thank you for interest. Brian

That's pretty darn clever. I bet you could used dried corn cobs in there too.

I've never been much of a campfire builder, but this does look like a good way to do it. It sure beats spending time hunting up firewood sellers near the campground and paying them top dollar for a little bundle. Lowe's sells a 40 lb bag of pellets for less than $6, which I'd guess is probably enough for a dozen campfires or more.

Mike the full set of logs hold just around 8lbs so five fires using all 4 logs, but I very seldom refill them all at once , I will just fill one or two and put them back on .A bag of pellets can go a long way . On another note since it is still winter pellets are great for icy spots , what I do is soak pellets but be careful they expand to at least twice there size , I let them expand and crush them up and put in enough water to soak them but not floating and I throw this slurry on the ice and depending on the conditions they wll either freeze on contact or they will melt in a little before they freeze and it makes for great traction. The pellets are dog paw friendly also but don't let them eat them.and one of the best features is they work great when it's to cold for salt and sand. Thank you . Brian
