They had a sale - not sure what I paid - think $500.

Once it gets hot there is not smoke. Pretty cool.

My kids would botch about the smell in the house - now itís nothing.

I just ordered one as well. We were going to fire it up tonight for some s’mores and drinks but damn it is hot. Thought about putting a floor ac out there but I’d sweat doing that. Maybe another month? Can’t wait to try it out.

Have the largest one which is the Yukon. They are basically high speed versions of the old washing machine drum. The fires burn hot and fast and it reduces smoke with the high temps and airflow.

wow, a little pricey for my blood, lol. Does it go thru a lot of wood since it burns hotter? What kinda wood do you use down there? Palm trees? I guess I'll stick to my $49 special, lol

not sure on the wood - but yes it burns them up quickly.

The kids hate hate smoke in the house so this really helps. Much less smoke than before 👍

Ya, it burns hot so wood goes fast. I have not played with ours enough but I bet that can be tempered with big chunks to slow it down. The upside is a clean fire with minimal smoke.

I was looking into getting one of those but the reviews about it rusting if left outside turned me off. For the money they want for one of those it should be able to stay outside in the elements without rusting.

A friend found one at our local dump the other day... free. I never have that kind of luck. He used it and gives it thumbs up as well.

If it’s 95 out the only think I’m putting on my deck is a portable AC!!

below 40 degrees before I would even think about firing that thing up but it does look really cool.

I prefer to sit by a gently burning fire in a conventional pit, not a jet engine. I’m sure it throws some serious heat.

What is the main purpose of said fire pit? Is it to stay warm or to cook on? maybe both. Is it Gas fed and maintained by wood?
