Two more thing, you need to drill 1/4" holes in the copper in different areas, the next thing is to crush one end of the copper pipe and if you can add a cap at the other end so you can load it and then close it up.

Yes you are right, as I have stated before do your cooking and smores before you use the copper pipe and stay out of the path of the fumes. You do not want to prolong any time in it's path, once you smell it you will move. Pay attention to the weather and the winds. As far breathing smoke from just wood burning is not good for you either.

The rubber you are burning poses a health risk as you yourself admit. Risk you health on more important things.

Not to mention those unfortunate campers downwind.

Not so long ago on an outting someone on the other side of us was burning something absolutely rancid in their fire, don't know if it was their garbage or hoses but we had to go inside it was making us sick.

I will add what I always add when I see these threads on camping forums:

What you burn in your fire pit, whether it be wood, paper, trash, copper pipe/garden hose, can affect every man, woman, child, and critter in the campground. Smoke doesn't just travel UP...and sometimes hangs in the air, and collects in other trailers and tents. No matter what you choose to do...be safe out there.

No harm...just want everyone to be informed, and safe out there.
Mind you....this is coming from a long time camper, and career Firefighter...

I've seen people throw fireworks in the campfire...AND THEN watch everyone scurry away. I've watched them throw unopened cans of beer in to watch them explode. I've seen them light the fire with gasoline. I've seen people toss disposable propane cylinders in, burn all their plastic trash, and drive away with the fire burning. Most times, it's not only people intentionally trying to cause harm...it's people that don't THINK about the outcome or effects until it's too late.

This is a free country...and people can do what they want. If you want different colors in your fire...so be it. All I ask is to be mindful of your neighbors with the smoke/fumes when you do...and try not to do it when the winds are blowing on your neighbor, or where there are lots of people. (and I'm sure you are, but others will read this post too)

Fumes and smoke from fires is very toxic to the body. Many people are allergic to smoke as well. Multiply that by 50 other campfires in the campground...you get the picture. Actually, a good time to teach kids fire safety and respect for it....IS around a campfire.

Sorry to get off on a rant here. I don't mean to bash your subject 'rock'....it's just a subject near and dear to me. (and...It's Fire Prevention Week!) :-)

Be safe out there campers...but have fun!

We just use old mini Christmas Lights. Of course like everything else it throws some smoke, but the colors last for quite awhile.
