    our fireplace. We ended up cooking some dogs over the fire, it was a bit windy so we had a small fire, just when we finished it started to rain.

    My wife wanted me to get some Cherry branches so we could cook over the fire, did that job in the garage while listening to some music.

    Nice, it looks big enough for a pallet bonfire on a cold winters night with a few nice beverages. Didn't I see this covered in snow in another link?

    The wife really likes it.

    She and a couple of little guys cooked some hot dogs over it, we watched them that day so there mother could do some shopping on Black Friday.

    I never did get my platform built to hold up the cooking grate so we could cook on it so a few blocks will be used until I get that done.

    I think so fishingpol, I think this Friday will be spent burning a bunch of dead pine branches I limbed up to make a trail in front of the house.

    I'll have some pics, we might cook on it Saturday or Sunday.

    Built for burning pine branches, tomorrow my first job will be cleaning up some chunks and uglies from the driveway then I'll burn 3-4 loads of branches.

    I did some burning of dead pine today (8 loads of branches), next weekend we will cook our first steaks on it. All the branches were limbed up in the summer,all I had to do was cut them down to size.

    We had some nice heat going, had to move the chair back. All the dead branches (some smaller dead trees) came from the northside of the house from three spots.

    Started working on some downed dead pine on the northwest side, I took four loads from this area. Earlier in the summer I limbed up some dead pine branches which I grabbed today.

    Out of the six loads I burned 4 before the rains came. It's slow going but it will make things look better once I'm done.

    Mother Nature took care of that, it started to rained pretty good right near the end of the burn, it's a mess out back.

    After I get the rest of this cleaned up I'll put a trail in up through the pines in the middle, it should consist of limbing up some of the bigger pine then drop some dead standing.

    I'd rather be cutting firewood but this job needed to be done two years ago. After this week I should have enough done that it will make a difference in the way it looks on this end.

    Now it all makes much more sense.

    When I saw the first two photos I was stumped by the disparity in size between the stone and the burning splits...

    ...now seeing the slash it all became clear.

    Cheers!

    It looks like it will be a long winter of burning outside & inside. I hear we have a big cool down coming down thanks to bogydave.
