We use what we call a Swedish Chimney.
You use three splits of a log either the same or from a different log as long as the splits
fit together reasonably well. One split is put upright in the ground and the other two are
stood next to it but moveable. A small fire in the middle at the base will swiftly spread
up the split edges. You can control the temperature by how close the splits are which
effects how much air gets to the burning edges. We have never used a stone top.
We just set the coffee pot on top of the logs.
