So for 6 people to sit in a circle, I'd be tempted to try to completely poor-boy ripoff the Solo Stove design. They claim that all the air vents and the dual chamber thing make the fire burn much cleaner, and throw more heat than a similar-sized pit. I fully agree that the stone rings aren't that great--they block heat to your shins. I somehow have it in my head that the huge flames coming out the top of the solo stove design would work to keep your shins warm, but I don't know. It is hugely telling that even in their ads, they show people in Patagonia jackets and with Yeti coolers. So I don't know how much is hipster gimmick, and how much of the design is legit.

When our house is done I am going to build something very similar to this, for our patio except with solid panels on one side and removable screen panels on the front. Also, extend the chimney up to about 10' high.

I built this on out of a propane tank.

I've been trying to come up with ideas on how to duct heat under a patio and up through vents that would pop out under where seats would be. Just not sure if all the extra work would actually make a difference.

I just picked up an old Compressor tank and 55 gal drum wood stove to make a shop stove out of. But what I really wanted was an old excavator bucket. Which would make a sweet fire pit also.

Even better I'd like to get and old bucket line dredge bucket

while it looks cool, that chicken never got to the other side. i think it would have been better off straight rotisserie.

Yota, I would think you would need a vertical stand pipe in the middle about the size of whatever fan you can fit where it won’t be totally heat saturated and then a larger fire pit around the outside of it so it is heating everyone sitting there and also heating that duct tube headed down through the center. After that you split that vertical tube four or six different directions under the patio with smaller duct and aim them behind everybody as the air outlet.

We just grab shovel-fulls of coals outtah the fire and plop them under peoples chairs.

Probably not a good idea on the patio though.

Don't assume my level of white trash!

I don't actually have a patio, was just trying to think of ways to heat a hangout area without being to complex. The other idea was to have one fire pit/fire place on the down hill side, then have the "chimney" run through a space under the patio. Not sure if would naturally disperse the heat though or just get really hot in the most direct path

I'm sure the most effective way would be to plumb a grid of pex in the slab, then a heat exchanger in the fire pit and a circulation pump.

I have a commercially available cast iron chimnea in my back yard. It has a cast bowl and chimney/hood and 360 degrees of expanded metal around the fire. It's almost 20 years old, so I don't know if they make them this good any more. Everyone sitting around it can see and feel the heat/fire. You can load it with wood until you can't fit another piece and it will throw fire 3 feet out of the stack and start to glow. It is fully awesome I also bought a Flame Genie to take when going camping at the races or similar. It is intended to use wood pellets, but after seeing that solo thing I think I'll try to just burn some wood in that biotch. It is designed just like the solo pit, but smaller.
