The founders of InstaFire have over 40 years of combined business and outdoor experience and are the leaders of fire starting technology. Konel Banner and Frank Weston co-developed the patented technology that exists with InstaFire. After personally experiencing natural disasters, that shaped their perspective on being prepared for emergencies, they were determined to develop a safe way to store emergency fuel/fire starter. Together they perfected the formula that now exists with InstaFire. It had to meet certain criteria:
Our Charcoal Starter is a safe, simple, and versatile product that starts fires quickly. Charcoal Starter is a patented blend of volcanic rock, wood pellets, and paraffin wax. Because it is an all-natural product, Charcoal Starter will not taint your food or grill. We use applewood and alderwood pellets that gives a slight apple scent when burning. To use with grilling, simply place one Charcoal Starter pouch on the bottom grate and stack your lump coal around it. Light the edges of the pouch. The Charcoal Starter pouch is made of wood pulp and corn sugar. Use Charcoal Starter as a safe and reliable fuel source for cooking while camping or in emergencies.
