    I visit a farm in Derbyshire and they provide free firepits and supply wood to burn on them.

    I really enjoy my visits there sitting outside with a nice fire and a few beers.

    I want to replicate this when I go elsewhere but don't want to carry a large firepit and loads of logs. I just tripped over these on Amazon and wondered if anyone had used them or similar?

    I like the look of this BBQ/Firepit as it is smallish at only 20cm x 30cm. The logs I like because they are neat and tidy and are said to burn for a lot longer?

    Just wondering about recommendations. This is primarily for heat outside when off hookup but may be used occasionally for a charcoal bbq.

    The log replacement.

    Storage space is an issue for me so I need something pretty compact. And no I am not interested in a Cadac or other Gas system :p

    PS: This is a shot of the view with the firepit :) As you can see too big to fit in the van.

    I thought the Amazon device was simple a chimney used to start a BBQ?

    van steel wheels make excellent fire pits when stood of 3 or 4 bricks to allow airflow underneath

    the logs burn really evenly and slowly Carl

    I use them when I am in a hurry in the Chiminea

    So it is, I've been using a Weber one for years, an excellent bit of kit, it gets the coals going in no time at all and holds just enough coals to create a fine BBQ.

    Hi Gromett
    Morrisons have a nice fire pit £25, not sure if it's what you are looking for.
