CBC's This and That looks at the work being done by Jess Horn, proprietor of Smoke & Flame, an artisanal shop that sells the perfect bundles of firewood for prices ranging in the thousands of dollars.

To make things right, Horn started Smoke & Flame - North America's only premium, handcrafted firewood manufacturer. In his tiny shop in Vancouver, BC, he and an apprentice labour over perfect bundles of kindling, twigs, moss, and logs which sell for upwards of $1000 each.
