So, what exactly is a chiminea? A chiminea (sometimes spelled 'chimenea') is a front-loading fireplace or oven with a vertical chimney or smoke vent. The opening allows you to load fuel into its round bottom section. A chiminea's design draws fresh air into the fire by moving the smoke and soot through its chimney. This means the fire burns hotter and cleaner. Wood is the most common fuel for chimineas, and almost any firewood will be effective as long as it's dry.

Whether you plan to use your chiminea for cooking or just as a source of warmth in your outdoor living space, it's sure to provide hours of cozy and comfortable enjoyment. Check out these outdoor chimineas — from clay to steel with price tags for every budget.
