    This was my second time making char cloth ever, and first time making "char cigars".

    I got the idea for the "cigars" from @theNATIVEONE8 , thanks Phil!



    I also wrote a quick "destructible" which I'm sure y'all don't need, but hopefully it will be helpful to someone.

    Now I just need to get my hands on some flint and steel, to see if I can start it that way, instead of a ferro rod.

    Awesome! Glad it worked for you. It’s my preferred method for winter. Great video, coffee is always a priority!

    That's a very thorough video. I agree that rolling it concentrates the heat for sure. Thanks!
