'Fireplace' burns Sterno

Recommended Posts

My client was a little disappointed to learn that his so-called gas fireplace is just a metal shell with 3 canisters for burning gelled alcohol.

Do they give off any heat? I've never come across one before.

Don't try to read that lingo under the mouse turds. It's French.

They say it is safe to burn in an unvented enclosure, or maybe it's not.


I used to do slashpile burning for logging outfits, and we all knew the petro-gel was toxic. The guy with the toxic materials ticket mixed the gel with diesel and gas.

Then we would pack bucket loads or plastic pouches of the stuff out to the piles and make like pyromaniacs. The rule was "Don't get it on ya".

OTOH, if the canned heat is pure alcohol, our systems could probably tolerate a fair bit of that. [:)]
