Put a firelighter on top of a bed of fuel, such as logs or coal, when you open the door to your stove. Place more logs, coal, or briquettes around the stack after covering it with kindling. Once the fire starts burning consistently, add more fuel to keep it lit, and the firelighters should be lit directly.
