I am looking to purchase a portable fire pit for a gravel area in my
garden. I am thinking it would be nice to sit around in the evenings
and get warm and watch the flame without the chance of it starting a
forest fire during high fire season. I was wondering if anyone can
give me ideas as what to look for in that type of a device.
I'm not interested in building a permanant pit (although I could, but
that is not my interest). I assume I want one which has a chimmney, so
the smoke won't get in the eyes of someone sitting downwind of the
Any hints or tips would be appreciated. It would be nice to have one
which I could also cook on. One of the features I am looking for is
the ability for it to put out heat while it is burning. Oftentimes, in
the summer evenings where I live the nighttime temps get in the 30's
and 40's- so the ability for it to put out heat with the flame is
preferred (so I guess it should have a hood).
