A ghillie kettle -- will bring water to boil within a matter of minutes using whatever solid fuel is naturally occurring in the area - sticks, grass, pine cones, bark etc. ! it is said---- by the irish -----that it can make a cuppa hot tea in a minute with 2 sheets of newspaper.
I have tried that .. and it is not far wrong... Somebody stole this chimney concept with a quick fire starter for charcoal briquettes with a couple pieces of newspaper in a short pipe---- stuffed the bottom with a couple pieces of paper and somehow provide good airway and as the flames go up and into the few pieces of charcoal briquettes it does work... the other place that I've tried this general concept is it is possible to take fire bricks. I don't know whether regular brick would work but it certainly works with fire bricks and by putting them in the square and providing the center chimney area open it is possible to get a very small fire going which will cause a pot at of the top of all this to get very hot very quickly. I had one of those going for awhile outside the T tent before somebody stole the firebricks ---- the whole concept of fire having a draft. causes plenty of oxygen to burn. I am shocked to watch people try and build a fire from the top down..... And is the reason for the hairdryer inb the bending metal project....... AIR is the key to having fires whether intentional or unintentional.. Houses with a central staircase over 2 floors can burn very quickly with that central chimney . Unfortunately I know about that one too.
Sunday being shatting day.. I am in my usual panic about chicken bricks. You all do such a fantastic job of donating the $10 for the number on the chicken shatting table-- we seem to manage to sell out most of the time as there are a lot of you who wait ti l the last minute... I just looked at the board and usually there's 6 to 8 people a day who by a brick..
But yesterday 32 people got their number.. and when I look back over the last 10 years.. most of the buying is done the last three days. which is always hard. On. my nerves..
But we seem to get there.
I'm always afraid but there are people who read this. dd religiously.. and don't realize what this chicken brick thing is all about.. so if it's news to you please ask anyone in the comment column or go to our web and click on the chicken and see if you could make your way through the memsic board. And donate $10
reese goes for a check up this morning... lynn will do that...
