Why the Azteca chiminea works so well
They’ve been using chimineas – or chimeneas – in Central America for hundreds of years. Made by hand from thick red clay, the talented people who make them know exactly how to get the best performance out of the design. As you’ll see when you fire yours up for the first time, it’s easy to light then burns fast, efficiently, and cleanly.
