An outdoor fireplace will enhance your life, giving you the option to enjoy a toasty fire and unwind with friends (or alone) at the end of a long day, or on a holiday, or whenever you please because you own a fireplace now!
It’s important to shop around and do research before you buy, because outdoor fireplaces cost a few hundred dollars and are an investment in yourself, as well as your friends, family and neighbours. This includes safety and quality of the product.
Lucky for you, we have done the research for you and will now share with you one of the top brands on the market today.
Today we are reviewing the Blue Rooster Company, makers of outdoor fireplaces. Their headquarters is based in Minnesota.
Their mission? To design and manufacture the best made, longest lasting outdoor fireplaces, chimineas and fire pit products available on the market. They even strive for customer service as outstanding and reliable as their products.
Slow down in this fast-paced world and create some new memories in your backyard with a Blue Rooster Company chiminea fireplace.
While perusing their catalogues you will notice cast aluminum chimineas combining beautiful style with low maintenance. Chimineas have been around for centuries, first coming from Spain and Mexico as ovens for cooking bread.
Their clever design involves a pot-bellied fire pit and a smoke stack, allowing you to cook within the belly or simply enjoy a warming fire on a summer’s evening.
You can even place a grill over the smoke stack and smoke meats or your choice of food. The design purposely draws fresh air into the fire and directs smoke up and away from guests.
This sets them apart from regular fire pits. Additionally, some municipalities do not allow backyard firepits. However, chimineas are always allowed!
Fire pits can be difficult to light and will smoulder and create smoke. Chimineas, on the other hand, contain the fire and ash and always direct the smoke up into the sky.
Plus, they are not likely to fill with water the way a firepit does, especially if you purchase a smoke stack cap for it.
Blue Rooster is clever for maintaining traditional design while utilizing new materials. Their chimineas are designed after the traditional Spanish ones that have been made for over 400 years.
These designs get used more often than firepits due to easy lighting and their ability to be lit and stay lit in windy conditions.
Cast aluminum is an ideal choice for chimineas. Traditionally they are made of clay, but clay can become brittle over time and is subject to cracking, particularly when dropped or subject to extreme temperatures. Cast aluminum chimineas will last for years and years.
With 10 years of experience, The Blue Rooster Company provides what they believe to be the best quality chimineas on the market today.
In addition to cast aluminum chimineas, they also offer them in cast iron and gas, as well as cedar furniture, covers, deck protectors, grates and parts.
Blue Rooster will remind every customer that purchasing a fire place/chiminea is an investment in the safety of the customer and their family and neighbours.
Chimineas burn hotter and cleaner, leaving behind only a small amount of ash. They enclose the fire, thereby protecting people and property.
The Blue Rooster Company has owned, burned and studied just about every type of outdoor fireplace. They have come to learn that aluminum is the best for it is low maintenance and always has a long life span.
It will not warp, crack or rust and is far lighter than cast iron, meaning you can change up your yard and move the chiminea around if needed.
This company truly cares for their customers and the shopping experience by providing all kinds of advice on their website for customers looking to buy a chiminea, including what materials to look for and how to gauge the weight and size of a fireplace.
All Blue Rooster cast iron and aluminum chimineas are cast from the same molds and are made for year-round use in any climate.
Their catalogue offers a very wide range of chimineas in different sizes, shapes, colours and materials. Their prices reflect this. They can run anywhere from $130 to $530 and up.
This multitude of choices enables the customer to look for exactly what they need and want, no matter your budget or amount of available space.
There are plain, some with grates, some without, ones with grape designs, ones with roses, butterflies and rustic themes: virtually any design you can think of, Blue Rooster has manufactured it!
