Admin: wasn't sure which forum was appropriate for this post - feel free to move it Thinking ahead to warmer weather and backyard bonfires. We have a piece of junk chiminea which smokes everyone out and requires constant tending. I cam across the Solo Stove (Bonfire size) https://www.solostove.com/solo-stove-bonfire/ Has anyone tried one of these? Seems like the airflow would be great for supporting secondary burn and preventing swirling smoke. Not excited about the $300 price tag, but seems like I could fashion a representative knock-off version with some scrap material and some time on the welding rig at our Makerspace. I'm thinking cut a beer keg about half height, then put a stainless steel stock pot inside, drill some holes and tack them together. Surround it with pretty pavers/stones to cover the ugly welds. What do you think?
