A butane lighter will get your fire started pretty quick.

Try Fritos - they burn well and can be eaten.

A very good and light weight firestarter is cotton balls they light quickly and burn for a while and they are very cheap.

rub petroleum jelly into those cotton balls and they will burn even better and be waterproof too!
