Local Manufacturer Launches Product On Amazon, Ranked #1 New Release

Tuesday, September 8, 2015

Prologue Grill & Fire Logs, a local manufacturer of fire logs made from recycled hickory wood shavings and sawdust, is now selling their product through Amazon.com, where it is listed as the "#1 New Release in Fire Pit & Outdoor Fireplace Parts." 

“Gathering the family around a campfire or your own backyard fire pit is an essential part of enjoying fall in the south,” said Dwight Bryant, owner and CEO of Prologue. “Now that we are selling our product on Amazon, anyone can have this experience surrounded by the smell of hickory.

Most importantly, you don’t have to worry about chemicals or glue in the fire your kids are roasting marshmallows over. Our products are 100 percent wood, so they are safe for cooking.”

Prologue manufactures the only extruded logs in the United States and uses sawdust and hickory wood shavings salvaged from another manufacturing plant. Recycling this product keeps raw material out of landfills. Prologues burn at a hotter temperature than regular firewood and are kiln treated, making them the best choice for state and national parks working to stop insects from infesting their forest. In addition to being bug free, the products are low smoke and spark free, making them ideal for open campfire cooking as well as grilling.

The 6-pack of 8-inch logs is available on Amazon. The product is Prime eligible, so members will not have to pay extra for shipping.  

Prologue is also available locally at:

·      Pruett’s Market, Signal Mountain

·      Raceway, Signal Mountain Road, Chattanooga

·      Ace Hardware, Whitwell

·      Raceway, Whitwell

"Extruded logs are already widely used in Europe and Canada for heating, but Prologue Grill & Fire Logs are the first that can be used for cooking, smoking and grilling as well as heating because they are chemical and glue free," officials said.

Businesses interested in carrying Prologues can contact 757-561-1576 or dwight@prologue-firelogs.com.
