This works better, faster & hotter burn if the sticks are elevated an inch or so with a metal mesh that will support them and allow an air draft underneath. Any size mesh will work – cut it to fit the brick hole depth plus an extra two inches wider – then bend an inch at 90 degrees on each length to make a shelf that fits inside the hole.

Arms discourage and keep the invader and plunderer in awe, and preserve order in the world as well as property... mischief would ensue were the law-abiding deprived of the use of them.
