It goes by many names, but fat lighter is one of the best natural fire starters you will ever find. When longleaf pine grows a long time (centuries), the heartwood becomes impregnated with resin. After the tree dies, everything except the "heart" rots away. If you can find a log of fat lighter, lightered, lighter wood; cut it into splinters or small sticks, this makes an excellent fire starter. The wood burns hot with a black smoke and it often drips resin when lit.
