Ohh the cone liner looks to be a eljay or jci cone. Those make the best fire pits.

I imagine it would work.
you can clearly see how the solo works.

the big solo is pricey, but it's pretty damned gigantic.

i dont know much about the crusher biz, i just weld and cut what the owner wants. goes thru allot of t1 and AR.

i've made a ton of fire pits and that pic is of my current fire pit. i've got a pit out back for the yard waste and, um stuff... if the out back pit burns better, and the wife like it, it gets put out front for the smores and such. its really heavy, about all my newer 25hp new holland tractor can handle with forks off the bucket. the out back it currently the other half of the cane assembly with a propane tank body on top that'll glow red if its fed, the 'incinerator'.

crusher guy is an absolute animal, work hard play hard. and his kid taking over the same.pretty sure they do most of the crushing in NW Wa. i got a call from him just after Christmas, they had finished a job and had went through 7 sets. i'm picking up 2 sets. people love these things, and for good reason.

This works out real nice if you can score a stainless steel washing machine drum. I've been using this one for years now.

Our cone liners make that one look small. I'd hate to move one without powered equipment. They literally weigh a ton.

More research needed on the smokeless deal. A buddy has a 13’ slip roll and tons of scrap SS.
My first suspended single sided hanging bowl. We used the old gin poles off of my dad’s winch truck from when I was a couple years old. Added a base and made a mock drum and crank handle (for when I find the right block and tackle to raise and lower) and put 100’ of scrap ish 5/8 cable on the spool.
Also built one out of 34” gas main bolted connection point, a bunch of rivet head 3/4” fasteners 1’ long to join 2 joints together (instead of welding, no idea) and 1” flanges o wither end between bolts. Looks super cool and 100 year old ish. Heavy AF but with it suspended and a stand pipe in the bottom with a top hat it draws air in there and doesn’t smoke much. Need to dig a pic

when you get it working it truly makes no smoke and you can clearly see it sucking the smoke back into the double wall part and then recirculating it back through the fire to be burnt.

but shit's pricy.

This. I love my solo stove. My wife got it for me thinking it would be better than dragging a 55 gallon drum out onto the ice after seeing the success i had with their cook stove. We use it every weekend. I can burn it on my deck and its mobile enough to bring wherever. Friends houses in the suburbs, (non backpacking) camping trips, the beach etc. Its pricey, but I think it will last me a good long while.

Washing machine drum.

I have made two of them and they are stupid easy and durable.
The top loaders will have a hole in the bottom so you'll need to put it on pavers.

The front loaders are held on by an axle shaft so they are solid bottoms.
I them mount a cross brace through stacked rims and it is beefy.

They are stainless steel and plenty of holes for air mean very little smoke once you get them started.

Only downside is the wood has to be cut to about 12" or it makes covering the top a pain when you're done.

My chiminea is made from propane tank ends welded together in a rough sphere, with a smokestack. The reason it's so great is the large scale. The body is 42" diameter, and the stack on it is 15" diameter or so. Looks awesome, nice and thick, and it airflows very very well once it gets hot. It creates such a venturi effect that it sucks air in and makes nifty little fire tornadoes in there. On friday, we got a small part of the kettle glowing orangish-red, and the temp gun claimed that spot was over 1000 deg. We had to keep our distance on the front side. I'll see if I can get imgur to work to post a pic.



Edit--here's a pic at Halloween. It's huge, and I can't fix it. We lug this heavy bastard out onto the driveway, get it roaring, and put a very half-assed jack-o-lantern face on it. Pic never do it justice, but I swear it looks cool (after dark, that is--looks like ass in the daylight). This is what it looks like when you feed it cardboard. But with enough of a bonfire in it, you can have flames coming out the top a few inches semi-sustainably. This thing throws some heat.
