Every now and then, my husband has a big bonfire in the garden. I must admit they make me nervous. I find myself compelled to watch them well into the night to make sure they’re properly out before I go to bed. I’ve been known to resort to water, just to be absolutely sure.
I much prefer an incinerator. Contained, controlled, slow-burning but often more intense, an incinerator gets the job done with less risk and almost no need of supervision.
