Got one of these which use as a barbecue and then for fire.
Discovered some very good smokeless log things that they sell in garage forecourts, Just light the packeta nd burnms for a couple of hours giving off nice amount of heat but no smoke.

i actually went to sainsburys today and bought a Bucket BBQ for £6.99

i'll let it sit in its box for a while and see how i feel about it... who knew that camping could be soooo stressful! My thoughts are that we can have it as a little bbq and then chuck wood in it to sit round in the evening!

bea that is exactly what we did 2 weeks ago - it worked nicely, large enough to cook supper for us 4 and then added a bit of wood and toasted marshamllows on it
