Just got it done. It sure helps to keep the smoke away from the people
around a campfire... It was a salt spreader.

Not a forum pigroast. He's not been to one yet.

For the life of me, I don't know how that is supposed to work unless you get rid of the legs.

Convection currents, that accelerate going from the big funnel to the small pipe, creating a draft.

Yeah I think it would work if you could get the current flowing. I read somewhere that smoke around a fire seems to follow you because of rising warm air from your body that draws it in.

When I was taught to start a fire in a fireplace, I was told to hold a piece of rolled up newspaper lit up the flue to get the draft started.
You may have to do that.

I doubt that pipe is large enough to draw much air through. Might have to put a chimney section on to get much draft, or a forced draft fan.  ::)

Those are all enclosed area scenarios. Seems any breeze is still going to blow smoke in people's faces with 6 feet of open air above and everything  around it.

I did what I wanted it to do. we are in a tight valley so we dont get much wind.
The smoke does go up the pipe no problem. The biggest reason I made it was
to protect the trees over head and it's doing just that. I'm sure if we get some
wind I will have problems but I dont like burnning when the wind blowing anyway.
I will try to get a picture next fire.

I was always told smoke follows beauty, so I usually just sit next to my brother.   Together we create a sort of vortex that pushes smoke away in a very rapid rate.😂

Last place I lived I had to put a hood like that above my fire pit and wrap some hardware cloth wire around it after having a couple of parties around the campfire that a grumpy neighbor a couple of houses down called the police on me. Turned out open campfires were not allowed, but being enclosed it was perfectly legal. I had the local fire department inspect it and notify the police to leave me alone.  :)
