Types of outdoor log burners
Outdoor log burners can come in a range of sizes, shapes and colours – but there are three main types to be aware of when looking for the one that’s right for you.
Typically made from clay, steel or cast iron, chimineas consist of a tall chimney spout, leading to a rounded "pot-bellied" middle where the fire sits, mounted on three legs. First used back in the 17th century, people tend to argue about whether they originated in Mexico, Spain or general South America. However, one thing no-one disagrees about is they they’re an ideal way to add an authentically rustic touch to any garden.
Easy to use, easy to maintain and easy to clean, chimineas are perfect for everything from keeping your guests warm in the evenings to accompanying a summer garden party. What’s more, if you choose a dual-use chiminea like our Margarita Cook & Eat model, you can even enjoy a BBQ feast grilled right above the wood fire too.
