Bark up or bark down?

Did this ever get sorted? I was having a fire tonight and ran up against this quandary. I think if the Norwegians can’t agree, who am I to decide?

Now that I’m an advocate for the upside-down fire for the purposes of fireplace woodburning, I think the answer (as it is for stacking) is ‘however it fits best’.


Whattya gonna do…

You gotta laugh.
