The Swedish log candle is a great idea as we found out a friend’s BBQ recently in Bideford. You simply need a well seasoned log and I would suggest Ash. Make two length way cuts that divide the log into four almost to the base. Drop a little fire lighter down the center and stand it on a safe surface. Light the firelighter and enjoy. They give off a great light and you can even cook on a Swedish Log. We just gathered around it to keep warm!
