The Incinerator, why doesn't everyone have one?

I shot this video during the winter, hence the toque on my head, and the fact you can see my breath. The video is slightly less then five minuets.

This device makes starting a fire in the winter easy. When the fire pit fills up with coals, it makes them as hot as a roaring fire.

When I think of all the smoke I ate while trying to blow on the fire, to get it going. This simple re-purposing of a common 12 VDC fan makes that laughable now.

The battery pack is the first one I ever purchased. It has a 300 W inverter. The first time I was required to use it on a nearly dead van to get it going it barely worked. So I went out and got a bigger one. This was the best use I have come up with for it since.

If you have seen the movie, Howl's Moving Castle, then you will understand why my kids call this video Waking Calcifer.

We do something similar, only with our always-present "floaty inflator".

Oh... those things are loud! Note, you can hear the crackling of the fire.
I have exactly the same inflator. I get it going and run.

We only use it to get the fire going. Too cheap to keep using the battery power after that!

I won't use any of that stuff. Why you might ask. I think I've had one campfire in past two years.

Every Friday for me, unless it is below -20C, (-4F).

Now if the guy just had the marshmallow held in his lips it would have gotten nicely browned as his eye brows were being singed off. No need to pluck eye brows + roasted marshmallow it's a twofer.

I am not associated with the barrel burning in any way. While we like big fires, explosions are avoided, if possible.

I think that is one of Francesca's friends.

Not any more........

Actually, I did something EVEN DUMBER than that one time...bought a really cool "birthday cake"-type fireworks thingy at a fireworks stand and sorta forgot it was real (outdoor) fireworks by the time my husband's birthday rolled around.

Burn marks stayed on my dining room ceiling until our next insurance inspection, just before which I thought it prudent to scrub them off.

Or it could have been me. Let me just say do NOT EVER use the paper towel you used to wipe up the spilled Coleman fuel as a fire starter under your nicely laid up teepee fire.

Takes just long enough to lay up the fire for evaporation to create an explosive cloud. Best way I can describe what happens when you strike the match to light it is.... A chorus of "that was cool dad, can you do it again!" said over my prone, missing facial hair in several locations self.
