Tell us about yourself!
Forgot to add "Sod... loads and loads of sod," to the list of things you'll need.
It's like a more expensive Dutch oven :-)
Ethanol (corn alcohol) is entirely different from methanol (wood alcohol) which is toxic but only slightly inebriating.
But it would go out every twenty minutes if you didn't move the logs back into place. :-(
If the fire tries to put itself out every twenty minutes, it takes much more work than just laying the logs, lighting them and enjoying hours of heat and light. Try it. It produces very little heat compared to breaking those same logs into three equal pieces and burning them.
I always tell people at work, "Smart and lazy. That's who you want working with you. They'll find the fast, smart, easy way to do everything."
