Lovely Mexican Clay Chiminea
– There is nothing quite like an open flame. Notably on a small patio. A Mexican open-front fireplace, chiminea or chiminea, will match in one of the flowerpots and tubs. You may want to put money into a cast-iron one, if you’re lucky enough to have a garden. There are just two layouts of outdoor fireplaces, Chimineas and Fire Pits. A chiminea could be defined as a mouth opening fireplace which has a chimney.
The design of a good chiminea creates a drafting action, drawing fresh air to the fire directing smoke/fumes upward away from you and your visitors. The flame burns hotter and cleaner, leaving a small quantity of ash. Chimineas also enclose a fire, protecting property and people.
They may have chimneys, however, drafting is prohibited by the 360 degree opening. Without drafting fire pits smolder due to inadequate airflow creating smoke which may be uncomfortable for you and annoying to your neighbors. They’ll leave behind large amounts of charcoal and unburned ash, better off left at the campground since they don’t burn clean.
