Having had a search around, I'm still none the wiser about a decent
chiminea.
Cast iron or aluminium? Anyone recommend a good sized decent priced one?

Cheers

Steven.

Sunday Telegraph Gardening Section recently reviewed various types of
Patio Heater. The reviewer said that the chiminea only warmed one
person at a time if he or she was virtually sitting on it. It now
serves as a cat shelter (minus fire)

I use a fire pit. Add a healthy appreciation for fire and you can warm as
many people as you like :-) Last time I used mine we had about 9 people sat
round it, quite a way away (to avoid singed eyebrows :-) ). The problem was
that I`d got the fire too hot, so it ended up warping the grill holding the
fire from the bottom of the bowl. Whoops!
