That's the problem with YouTube. So called experts giving advice.

Interesting as me and my friends use an old cast iron firebox for cooking and heat at medieval shows but its long enough that you can put proper logs into it which is handy if youre just cutting the with an axe like I do as saws were extremely uncommon back then.
