The Yogscast uses redstone-toggled fire, probably using this mod. However, CraftBook is only available for SMP. How can I get this feature into SSP?

And just an FYI, its not really possible to get an SMP mod into SSP unless its also compatible in SSP.. Works this way in both directions unfortunately. – James Feb 29 '12 at 17:02
Right. I wasn't looking to get this exact mod, I was looking to get something that adds this feature from the mod. – Unionhawk Feb 29 '12 at 17:03

As of 1.2, you can ignite blocks using a fire charge launched by dispensers, but you will waste a lot of materials.

Well, sure, a fire charge could be used eventually to start a fire, but there'd be no good way to toggle that fire off using redstone (unless you want to get creative with pistons and water and whatnot) – Unionhawk Feb 29 '12 at 17:37
you can turn it off by using flood gate. – IrishPersonality Mar 1 '12 at 5:33
which falls under the category of "getting creative with pistons" – Unionhawk Mar 1 '12 at 14:04

You want this mod: Redstone Activated Netherrack, or as you pointed out, Redstoned Netherrack

Sounds promising. I'll check it out, and accept if (probably when) it works – Unionhawk Feb 29 '12 at 17:43
Sadly, it's a 1.0.0 mod... le sigh *begins a quest for similar mods Here we go! I found one So... should I post that as an answer now, then? – Unionhawk Feb 29 '12 at 22:21
Never mind, that mod works such that now I can't place blocks on top of netherrack. Good thing I made a backup. – Unionhawk Feb 29 '12 at 22:34

You could also use flint and steels in a dispenser, if you don't want to use fire charges
