Mini moved inside

I was inspired to move the mini inside after seeing Zippylip's post. I have a 2 sided fireplace between the kitchen and den. On the kitchen side there is actually another flue and a grill. I removed the grill and the little guy fits right in.


Of course I had to see how it would work and to my delight the smoke went right up the flue. I do have a CO monitor 10 feet away.


I just happened to have a nice thick ribeye on hand. DP Cowlick and on it went.

Thanks for the idea Zippy!

    I think your medium will be a better fit. Maybe we're onto something here.

    I think it's a great idea. As long as you keep your chimney clean and don't grill a lot of fatty stuff it's a gret idea. Thanks again.
  • I read the subject line and thought, "Ohh, this is a really bad idea." Then I saw your set up and thought, "Wow, what a great idea!"
