    Just make sure you never use the styrofoam egg containers.Burning Styrofoam containers release harmful chemicals into the environment.

    Such a clever idea! Those charcoal bricks really fit well inside the carton and it's really convenient for camping.

    I used to have access to sawdust from the table saw where I worked and would mix sawdust and paraffin in a bucket and fill the egg cartons with it to make our own fire starters, I really liked to do that because I could mix in essential oils and make them scented or add cinnamon and cloves at christmas...I quit doing it when the cardboard cartons stopped being so readily available and I even tried making newpaper "logs" with it before I quit all together....It was just messy to do with newspapers, and as I've said the eggs all started coming in the "foam" cartons....But yeah this is one more great idea...

      You could use TP and cut down paper towel rolls instead of the egg cartons.
