Brothers Campfire Demonstrates How To Get Lit For Real

Hello Friends!

I do not drink or smoke, but I am going to teach you a surefire way to get lit and stay that way. For those of you that do not know me, I am Benjamin from Brother’s Campfire. I tell an ongoing story about my life and the Land Of La Longi.

The Storyteller

This is what’s really going on. I do not like to waste things. I had some leftover tallow from a cooking project and an old T-Shirt and I just could not part with them in the traditional manner;the trash.

Zoom on in and get a look at the sweat stains!
That’s it! Just don’t smell your phone right now!

Well, I got to thinking, I could get lit using these items in an appropriate manner so I got some scissors and got all meticulous like.

I go through a lot of coffee, and have a few empty containers left around. I stored the beef tallow inside one. Anyways, I gloved up and slathered a strip of cotton T-Shirt in the tallow.


I did not just want the greasy strip of cloth staining everything so I wrapped it around a stick for safe keeping.

It kept unraveling, so I did what any self respecting hobbyist might do. I secured it with baling wire.

While I tried to look for a way to get lit, my beloved said it was time to eat.

Whatever it was, It was tasty! Thank you, Beloved! Before things got dark, we decided to pull some weeds.

I went ahead and fed these to the ducks.

As night fell, I could not see much so I pulled out my lighter that I found on an earlier adventure.

Having the necessary hardware, it was time for me to sneak out and get lit. And get lit I did! I was smoking and on fire for around 10 minutes. If you try to get lit I assume no responsibility. Follow local laws and good judgement.

Have a beautiful day Friends!
