View Full Version : Chiminea's

28th May 2005, 23:24
Bought one this afternoon, and have spent a very pleasant evening (and night) out in the garden toasting myself over the wood burning stove. There is something deeply satisfying and primeval about sitting under the stars watching the logs burn and getting pi**ed. (Or maybe it's just the getting pi**ed bit.)

Morning after edit: Less satisfying and primeval is waking up with a thick head and nausea, must be all that wood smoke!:yuk:

I can think of one or two people who I could call chiminea as well.........shaped like one and full of hot air.

I recommend B.B.Q.-style charcoal. No smoke, apart from a little when you first light it/add to it. Absolutely ace! Our Chim. is earthenware, about four feet tall.
We have had its pot-belly glowing quite a few times well into the early hours, whilst friends and us enjoyed each others company, becoming slowly soused!
Give it another go. Can't comment on the thick head and nausea. Could be bad grog. Don't recall it affecting us. :ok:

Taking delivery of a cast iron chiminea today, I hope it's as good as yours folks.
Saw a firepit thing there as well, it's like a square tray with a pyramid on top, supposed to be very effective but haven't seen one in operation yet.
