According to legend, the chiminea was invented hundreds of years ago by Mexican tribesmen. The men created a fire pit that could keep their families warm while also providing enough of a flame for their wives to cook. Most importantly, the design of the chiminea would prevent the wood from getting wet. Another benefit to the chiminea design is its rounded bottom and fluted top. This creates a flue to direct the smoke upward rather than around the fire pit. This then allowed for a quicker and safer burn.
Today, the chiminea has become a modern way to decorate any backyard garden or patio as an outdoor fireplace or fire pit alternative. Its small size makes it convenient for families with limited backyard space or for families desiring a simple element to complete their outdoor area.
Selecting the mold of a chiminea is incredibly important. The right mold can help eliminate rusting or warping of the material. In addition, the type of material used to build the chiminea can burn wood at a faster rate.
