    Seriously, it took me 1.5 hours to start a fire in the fireplace. i used half a big box of fatwood fire starter and all i have is a weak fire.

    What the hell am i doing wrong?!?!?!

    put the fire starter log on the bottom, a couple other logs around it and some twigs, kindling on top. Make sure the chimney flume is open and light it.
