I don't really have much of a need for a fire pit. I mean, sure, it would be nice on chilly Boulder nights when we want to sit outside, and fire pits are rather romantic and cozy devices. But this one? Come on. Yes, I want one! After all, I came up with this general idea years ago! [Specifically, the graphic on that page.] Sigh. But at $1700 I suppose it's just a pipe dream. After all, it would be rather ironic to own one since it would add CO2 to the atmosphere. And, of course (wait for it...) I don't want to set the world on fire.

Tip o' the charcoal briquet to Miss Cellania at Neatorama and Laughing Squid.
