Smokeless Campfire Rings
And, you can even add a grill option, says Anthony Anderson, who designed and makes the rings.
After a long cold winter heating his New York Mills, Minn., home with a wood stove that required lots of wood, he learned about gasification. After researching, he built an outside boiler and a small fire ring.
“Our (double wall) ring holds smoke long enough giving it oxygen so it reignites like a Bunsen burner,” Anderson says. He spent a few years experimenting with hole alignment and heights of different size rings for the most efficient burn.
The fire smokes a little in the beginning, but turns smokeless when the ring heats up. He notes that it’s important to use dry wood, but demonstrates on his website’s video that the ring burns leaves without smoking.
Customers appreciate the quality of his rings made from nine CNC-cut pieces of 16-gauge mild steel welded together.
Rings come in four colors (black, blue, red and green) and four sizes: 16, 24, 28 and 32-in. outer diameter, that weigh between 25 and 80 lbs. Prices start at around $119, and are listed on the AJA website.
