<p />The stork paid a visit to the KennyG Ranch today and blessed Carol and Ken with little "Chimey" Green. Weighing in at a healthy 55 lbs., she carries a predictable resemblance to her cousins Humpty and Junior. I just can't figure out where she got those big lips from. Mom and Dad are as happy as gophers in soft soil.[p]K~G

    KennyG,
    Glad you got it for the right price.

  • KennyG,[p]It looks like one, stands like one, and presumably smokes like one. [p]But exactly how does this differ from "THE ONE." Explain![p]Anthony

    KennyG,
    Take off her little green cap, Then her throat/neck -
    A mini 9" grill will fit right on top. NOW Cook stuff![p]Some of my most jaded friends, (people like you, KennyG) continue to comment about how great those spur-of-the-moment burgers are on the BGChiminea.

    Nature Boy,
    I haave a cousin who sells a grillion terra.cotta chimineas to "HOME"-type? stores each year. Ou first chiminea became overheatedt & cracked, was later mended and then BACKED OVER.[p]Our BGE chiminea is really small but can crank out a lot of heat. It is perfect. Larger would be more perfect

    Anthony Up North,[p]Same ceramic construction in a thinner wall design. The spec sheet claims it can handle 1400* but I don't intend to push that envelope. As an added bonus, as Julie mentioned, you can cook on it as well.[p]Maybe LGC (little green chiminea) bratwursts tonite, washed down with a nice corkfree wine, if I can find some firewood.[p]K~G

    KennyG,
    We love steaks, brats and burgers cooked on our chiminea. Our tri pod is taller than yours, they must have modified the original design.

  • KennyGKennyG Posts: 949
    JJ,[p]Do you burn lump when you cook in it or just firewood?[p]K~G
  • JJJJ Posts: 951
    KennyG,
    I have used both but prefer just wood. I use charcoal mainly when it cool outside and I am using the Chiminea has a deck heater.

  • KennyGKennyG Posts: 949
    JJ,[p]Good point. I picked this up primarily for party ambiance and use as a deck heater. Have you had a problem with flying sparks and embers?[p]K~G

  • JJJJ Posts: 951
    KennyG,
    I sure have. I am working on a screen cover much like a fireplace screen to cure the problem.

  • Tim MTim M Posts: 2,410
    KennyG,[p]Flying embers has prevented me from getting one. My deck needs no more of that. The screen front would be a nice addition and should be fairly simple to fit (with your skills - not mine, I would use duct tape). [p]I was at a store the other day and saw a cast iron chimnea type thing. I could only imagine how hot that cast iron would get and how badly it would burn anyone or anything that inadvertently touched it. Ouch!! I assume the ceramic gets warm but won't burn. [p]Tim

    JJ,
    Keep that thing away from Idaho!! hehe.[p]Just talked to the ranger out there, and they are at a stage 2 fire ban. No campfires. They also have a ban on smoking cigarettes unless you are in your car or a building. No power tools to cut trees during the day. They DO let you cook on propane or LP stoves luckily. Sounds like they mean business. She said they have never gone to Stage 3 alert, but that it is pretty bad this year.[p]Glad we will be mostly above treeline.[p]Cheers
