    makes pretty dam good flames!! i love mine but will really use it this winter and put it to test.

  • have one. like it.

    depends on your dealer

    pros. toasty warm on a cool night, can be used to cook on. makes great s'mores according to others, vastly increases your bge 'cool' level with the neighbors.does not rust and stands up to the elements... other chimneas rust or don't take well to winter... stay tuned for me and the chimnea in the snow later this year...

    cons.. sitting in the breezeway warmed by the chimnea results in me being overserved the adult beverages ,,

  • I've had one for 3 years and can't wait for a cold front to fire mine up. Cons are a fairly small opening and interior. You really need about 1 foot pieces of wood or chunks. Pros are-it's an egg an looks great, get's real, real hot, has a sweet jet engine effect like in Mike's post, and can be used as a grill. I never use mine as a grill, but some do. Scott

  • that's funny stike. I've packed mine well, but not overflowing! Scott

    stand up the wood, 18 inches to 24 inches long. better draft.

    it's the same ceramic, so there's no real reason not to stand the wood up in the chimney if you need to. i use wood from the yard, and my oak branches don't fall in tidy 12 inch lengths.

    I like mine. Could be bigger though.
