Conclusions:The Dakota Fire Pit is an extremely effective means by which you can cook with a very limited amount of fire wood. Layer the main pit area with with granite or other fire retardant rocks and you will further decrease the amount of fuel needed to maintain a fire in this pit. When utilized correctly this fire pit will put off minimal smoke and can burn nearly all night with a arm bull of firewood! I have used this style of fire in a few primitive shelters and it has provided sufficient warmth and the fire has stayed lit the entire night with minimal maintenance. Now I wont say it puts off a ton of heat as it doesn't but the ground near the pit stays sufficiently warm and if you keep the fire near your core it will easily keep you warm through the night, and it the fire dies down to a coal base merely a log onto the fire and you will have another hour or two of warmth. Overall, I highly recommend that you test out the Dakota Fire Pit and see how it can meet your needs in the wilderness!
