Default Safest way to cross-cutt split wood for chunks?

I want to use some of this split firewood, in chunk form with a minion cook. What is the safest way to secure the wood and to cut it? My BF has a sawzall but with a metal blade on it right now. I think securing it with a hand or foot is dangerous.

A 5 or 6" vice comes to mind. I have that at work, not at home yet. I have used a sawzall and it work's/not all that well. A small chainsaw is far better. The hand foot method makes me nervous every time I do it , even though I am careful!

in a pinch I have used my hack saw with a coarse blade, bracing the wood with my heavy work boot, but have since obtained a cheap 5" table vise and a crosscut hand saw....

My only argument with the chopsaw method is I think you are looking for smaller pieces for the Minion method. I am not sure the chopsaw achieves that. If it does, I need one. Please educate me, I have not used one.
