Finding wood for your Chiminea
Depending on where you live in the world, will depend on the proper type of wood for chimineas. In the United States we have the Pinion wood tree, also spelled Pinyon wood and Pinon wood.
But, for those of us in the United States, we have great options for wood for chimineas. Some of the finest chiminea wood comes from the Southwest U.S. My favorite chiminea wood is Pinion wood from the state of New Mexico. This state has the best chiminea wood available in the global wood market.
Chimineas are often made out of clay or cast iron these days. Years back, most of the clay chiminea were coming out of border towns of Mexico and they were trucked into Texas and then trucked all over the United States. My experience with clay chimineas was disappointing because they would crack so easily. Often the mistake people make is if they need to put out the fire, they would throw water on the fire. With the entire clay chiminea heating up, the cool water shocks it and cracks the entire outdoor chiminea.
Another type of chiminea wood I have used in my chiminea is Rocky Mountain Ponderosa Pine. This is a great smelling wood and if it is seasoned well can also serve as a firestarter. Ponderosa Pine is the most famous wood in Colorado and New Mexico. In these states, they sell more Ponderosa than any other wood. If you have ever spent a vacation in New Mexico or Colorado, this is the amazing fragrance you can smell in the air. I love the Ponderosa pine for sale in New Mexico and Colorado!
