aka a "Chimenia". I see a propane tank in the background; how far away from the propane tank is that thing? I dont want to see any news reports of an explosion in Hondo Texas on tonight's news.

"Out local news staff report the explosion caused rock concert t-shirts to be strewn all over the area"

If the tank blows it will be over fast lol. It looks close in the picture but it is at a safe distance.

My Chimenias always cracked if I stoked up the fire that much.

...I opened this thread expecting to see a rare "Texas Firec". Which I presume is related to the Chupacabra family. Now I am disappointed.

Plenty of Chupacabras around that is why divorce lawyers are always busy.

He disappoints, again. It would have been the honorable thing to do.

We were over at a buddy's house a few years back and he was using his to dispose of some storm debris. Got it so hot that it was glowing a nice orange/red. A quick shower passed over and it blew apart. Fiery fragments went everywhere. Thankfully none of us were hurt and the rain put out the additional fires.

The wire screen on my current outdoor fire place is rusting out. I've been thinking of replacing it with something with a chimney to direct the smoke away. How well do those chimeneas direct the smoke up above faces? Maybe a cast iron chimenea...

Texas football is a dumpster fire. But my school UTSA is 10-0 and ranked Im sure the mother school in Austin hates that. Yup was laughing when Kansas converted a 2 point conversion in OT. No excuse for Texas being so bad it stinks all over.
