Dakota Fire Hole (and why I love it) 13:07 
Video by David's Passage

https://youtu.be/ffldYo4EVCg

While this video is far too long for the actual content, the principle of the Dakota Fire Hole is worth knowing.  Watch from 2:00 to 4:00, then fast forward and watch from 7:45 to 8:45.  Those three minutes cover what’s necessary. Thank you, David, for posting this on YouTube.
