The St LuciaCast Iron Chiminea with Barbecue Grill combines a traditional base and flue design with the open sides and grill of a fire pit, to allow you to cook food, as well as keep your guests warm all year round.
An angled top is held up on a sturdy yet minimal frame, ensuring a good view of the flames and plenty of room to access the barbecue grill. A spark arrestor is placed right at the top of the chimney flue, which provides extra air flow when the lid is removed, so that the smoke is directed up and away from you and your guests.
For useful preparation space, a ceramic slate-style tiled shelf runs partway around the chiminea base, giving a great place for plates, utensils or ingredients whilst barbecuing. The cast iron grill is attached on a hinge to the middle frame of the chiminea, so will easily swing in and out making it easy to add or remove food as it cooks.
The grill comes with a protective wax coating that will melt off on first use. Please ensure all the wax is removed before using it for cooking – we recommend allowing it to cool then cleaning any remaining wax off by hand before cooking food on it.
At the bottom, a tapered base features holes to the side to allow air in to circulate the heat, including a removable ash collector at the base for easier cleaning. The St Lucia also comes with a free poker utensil to keep hands well away from the heat and for moving the cast iron grill in and out of the fire.
The cast iron is perfect for radiating heat as well as giving the chiminea a sturdy long lasting construction. This makes the St Lucia ideal for use all year round for those late night summer gatherings, right into the cooler autumn evenings.
To keep your chiminea in the best possible condition, we recommend covering it with the free cover included when it is not in use. Please follow the cleaning and care instructions in the product manual to ensure your chiminea stays in great condition. Where possible, we would also recommend storing it indoors during winter months or very bad weather, to keep it looking and functioning well for many years to come.
