How To Make A Dakota Smokeless Fire Pit

Today we’ll be covering how to create a Dakota Smokeless Fire Pit. These smokeless fire pits are great for hiding your fire from enemies. They tend to keep a hotter fire, and a great at being virtually smoke free. This is the perfect way to create a concealed fire.

Steps to creating a Dakota Smokeless Fire:

Step 1) Dig two fence post holes side by side (approximately 6-8 inches apart)

Step 2) Connect the two holes at the bottom to allow air to flow through

Step 3) Put your wood in one of the holes. We recommend putting your heaviest wood at the bottom, then middle density wood, then tinder/light wood on top

Step 4) Light the fire and maintain it

Essentially what this does is allows the empty hole to act as an air intake for your fire hole. You can also place small stones at the bottom of your fire hole, this can also help enhance the air flow a bit making your fire hotter.

With record low temperatures sweeping across North America people are having to face weather conditions that they may not have encountered before. It’s not impossible to survive such conditions, the Evenk people of Siberia, and the Inuit of Northern Canada manage perfectly fine in conditions colder than the United States is currently experiencing. The difference is they are born to it, and generations of knowledge have been passed down to them regarding how to deal with extreme cold.

Hypothermia

Hypothermia occurs when a person’s body temperature drops below 35°C (95°F). Normal body temperature is around 37°C (98.6°F). It can quickly become life threatening and should be treated as a medical emergency. It’s usually caused by being in a cold environment and can be triggered by a combination of things – such as being outdoors in cold conditions for a long time, living in a poorly heated house or falling into cold water.

People who are particularly at risk are those who are elderly or ill and are unable to move around easily to generate heat. Babies are also more prone to developing hypothermia because their bodies’ ability to regulate their temperature isn’t fully developed.

However, it is not just babies and elderly people who develop hypothermia. Anyone who spends long periods outside during the winter without wearing appropriate warm clothing can also be at risk, particularly after drinking large amounts of alcohol.

For example, there have been several cases in recent years of young people developing hypothermia while making their way home drunk after a night out. They were lightly clothed and lost their way home, only to be discovered dead, or close to death, with severe hypothermia.

The signs of hypothermia vary depending on how low a person’s temperature has dropped.
