We have since outgrown the anachronistic need for a roaring fire.....
Well stated Sensei Muddypaws..... I haven't been treated to this sweet noun for quite some time. However, my preference is to keep the coach windows closed and go out and relish that primal hypnotic campfire. Let's face it, the evening really does beg a warming fire... wood smoke included

And some coffee too. At worst you can imagine having a cup a Joe at a BBQ. But seriously - coffee helps.

If the smoke blows toward the coach, i close up that side and put the awning in.
The slope of the awning "invites" smoke in.
