Thanks for these Le Loup. I will watch them after work. I seem to have bad luck with punkwood and only ever seem to find it after the rains. I find that it acts like a sponge and is difficult to light. That said, I have used it before (in a wet condition) to create smoke in some circumstances to get rid of mozzies and other pests.
