High Temp Raised Fire Grates

Bottom Rack Fire Grates

Grilling and Baking Area

Decorative Oven Door

Designed of solid cast aluminum with heavy steel burning and cooking grates, the Casita chiminea has an oven hidden behind the sunburst face. Opening the sunface access door reveals a grilling/baking area for easy campfire cooking (for your creative pyros out there, it is used as an oven, not a second fire box).

A unique chiminea, made for you to enjoy a fire while you cook your dinner at the same time. This original Blue Rooster design was first introduced by The Blue Rooster Company in the mid 90’s, our flagship chiminea.

The Casita functions as a great outdoor drafting fireplace, like all Blue Rooster clean burning chiminea firepits. But when the hunger creeps up it’s time for something to eat, the oven is already hot. Our family actually keeps a chiminea shopping list that includes sweet potatoes, corn on the cob (still in the husk), hot dogs, brats, s’mores kit, and meatballs. Yep, meatballs on a stick. Frozen meatballs toasted over a fire and dipped in marinara, you’re truly living “the good life”.

Most of our munchy list can be made in other chimineas with a little ingenuity and tinfoil. But where the Casita really shines is with a Dutch oven or a Pizza Stone for wood fired pizza. Buy a bunch of small pans and hold a pizza party! Preparing dough in advance, or using soft shell tortillas, guests can create culinary masterpieces. No kitchen mess, just burn your paper plates along with napkins, grab another beverage and enjoy the evening fire.

When used for cooking we recommend using a 12″-14″ pizza pan or 2 to 3 personal pizza pans, Dutch ovens, fresh baked bread tins, baked dishes, tv dinners, the options are endless. Made for use on your deck or patio, this substantial chiminea/oven combination will provide a lifetime of worry-free use.

The Casita fireplace we designed over 20 years ago. A smaller version knock off is being sold occasionally online by an unscrupulous company. When they say, “Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery” they really mean “We are not intelligent or creative, so we will just steal your idea”.

The original Casita Chiminea is only available from The Blue Rooster Company.

Where to use it?

A properly designed chiminea with mouth screen and spark arrestor neck insert are considered enclosed burning devices. Often they can be used where open fires are not allowed such as a deck or patio area. They also classify as cooking devices with the grate inserts and should be allowed wherever a gas grill is accepted.

Maintenance?

Just like a car that needs an oil change now and then, a chiminea requires occasional ash cleanout to keep it burning clean. Ash level should be kept away from the bottom of the burn grates to allow for proper air flow. Sooner or later, you may want to freshen it up with a coat of paint. Any high temperature spray paint will keep it looking new.

How do chimineas compare to fire pits?

A fire pit is classified as a “Recreational Fire”, much like a ring of rocks, whereas a enclosed chiminea is classified as a “Outdoor Portable Fireplace”. Blue Rooster chimineas may also be classified as “Cooking Devices” due to the cooking grates and enclosed design.

There are many fire pits incorrectly advertised as chimineas. They have mesh wraparounds, multi openings, and faux chimneys that only funnel smoke and have no effect on the fire. Due to lack of proper engineering, a mislabeled fire pit will never draft properly. Fire pits have a tendency to be hard to light and smoke/smolder due to not having proper drafting. Fire pits also have safety concerns regarding the possibility of a sudden gust of wind blowing embers into dry grass, deck, or a neighbor’s property.

The drafting on a well designed chiminea, creates a hotter fire, that burns brighter and more efficient then a fire pit. Better efficiency means a chiminea will have a lot less cleanup and will get the most BTU’s from your firewood. Chimineas will get used more often than firepits due to easy lighting and ability to be lit in windy conditions. A good chiminea is the superior design for the backyard deck or patio.

Should I place something under my chiminea?

We recommend using a Deck Protector hearth pad to protect the surface of your deck or patio when using a chiminea. A chiminea does not direct much heat downward, but the occasional ember or ash will happen with any fire. A flexible Deck Protector is easily moved with your chiminea for patio arrangements and allows for easy clean up after a fire.

Patio block is a good material for a more permanent pad. It comes in 18x18x1 cement blocks and is available at any local outdoor garden store. Patio block is available in different shapes colors and sizes so you can find something to fit your needs. Four 18x18x1 patio blocks make a three foot hearth pad that works great to protect your surface from an ember or stray ash. It also provides an area for extra firewood and hotdog/marshmallow sticks.

Even with a patio block or cement pad, a small 18 x 36 deck protector makes life easier. Any stray embers or ash are easily swiped away and it cushions the knees while adding wood to the fire,

How long do Blue Rooster chimineas last?

With proper use and maintenance our chimineas will last for many years. Blue Rooster has made metal chimineas for over 20 years and most all are still in use.

What color chiminea is the best?

Most wood burning chiminea buyers stick with the charcoal color since the soot and ash buildup turns a colored chiminea charcoal. The effects of sun and weather will also wear down the factory paint over time and high temperature firings eventually darken colored chimineas. BBQ spray paint is a quick fix for regular maintenance of cast iron, steel and cast aluminum parts.

The Blue Rooster chimineas all start with 3 layers of high temp charcoal (black) fireplace paint. The color finishes are then applied to create a patina finish. High temp spray paint is available at your local home store or hardware store in a variety of colors. High temp spray paint can be applied in just a few minutes and will keep your chiminea looking brand new.
