Like Bosun says a chiminea is good BUT it needs to be a decent size.
Chiminea Or Fire Bowl?

But some friends have a Chiminea with removable top, the base of which can be used as a barbecue, and also with a paella pan on. They say they got it in B&Q but it was a fee years ago.

I was sat round a washing machine drum in a field a few weeks back, they work bloody well as a fire pit. I reckon it wouldn't take much to make it look a bit more Homes and Gardens to suit your 'dapper city bloke retired to the country to live amongst the yokels' look Dai!
A washing machine drum in a field. Sounds lovely.
We do have to keep up appearances. I don't have a washing machine drum so I'd have to go and buy one. Then i'd have to "do it up". Probably just as cheap to buy something that is made for the job.

I've got both and prefer the chimnea. they hold heat and burn longer as the air flow is a bit more restricted, almost like a pizza oven with a chimney. to be honest, i always light both tho, i do like a good burn up of an evening with an ale or two...as for clay chimneas cracking, it's usally down to not curing them right. the first few times you use a clay you should barely load it and let it just burn out, this puts a good coating of soot on the inside, then just crack on. iv'e had one over ten yrs with no problems, and i'll have the flames lapping out the top of it...
