Instead of charcoal, a catalytic heater behind the chair.

When it's cold I wear my warmest coat which makes me look like I'm wrapped in a thick blanket, thick gloves and, what's more important, some cold-proof footwear.

All this talk about sitting around in the cold, outside a nice warm trailer sorta reminds me of something my mother used to say about "some people not having (something or other) the rain" ... (Now what was it again she said?)

I have posted this before but will repete . One drawback to our small units is in bad weather no place to sit with others . @ years ago we were at a gathering i Canada where the wind blew and it rained all the time so we fashioned a bed sheet on the windward end of our awning and we have the little gas campfire We were quite comfortable with 6 0r7 folks . So when we got home we got some canvas and made one that will fit on either end of our awning and we have used it quite often. Now that we have a pattern we will be making a new one soon and fix the flaws on the proyotype! The gas camp fir lasts around 10 hrs on a 20 # tank.

I use a big piece of scrap metal and fashion it in an arc and place behind the fire pit to throw warmth towards you. And set up the first up gazebo with windwalls and put a Heater buddy in it. All friends enjoys this outside living room. Gets cold in the Mountains of West VA in the late fall. And yes, wear a hat, wool works great. Enjoyed the reading of this forum. Fun

Reflective emergency blankets. Place them in your chair and you will be cooking in no time. Use them all the time on cold scouts camping.

Often have camp fire bans during the summer months - due to forest fires that have been known to destroy forested areas bigger than Switzerland. As a result propane fire pits have become a hot item for campers. I have a little Fire Dancer and I have actually come to enjoy the added bonus of the whole trailer not smelling like a campfire after a trip. Another added bonus is you can burn it while sitting under the awning out of the rain which we all know never happens in BC :-))
