The History of the Chiminea (also called chimenea)
Chimineas originated in Mexico possibly a few hundred years ago, some people estimate these were in use for thousands of years, these were used by tribesmen to keep their families warm, but also a means of cooking, the design of the chiminea protects the fire from the rain, very little fuel can be used to get a strong focused heat.
Pinewood is commonly burned in chimineas due to its ability to repel insects, as well as its beautiful scent.
At Outdoor Furniture Ireland, we sell the top brands in Mexican style chimineas, in Ireland, we also have a number of contemporary chimineas available. We recommend the Gardeco brand in chimineas due to their extra thick chiminea walls.
