The wood has caught fire and the 1/3 tee pee like arrangement draws air well for a small hot fire with plenty of radiant heat. A variety of cast iron cookware is nearby. The tripod with the flames coming up through it is 13 inches in diameter. On the hearth are a 14 inch griddle with a smaller frying pan and Dutch oven on the left. On the right there is a 14 inch Dutch oven with a 14 inch frying and lid on top. All three 14 inch cast iron cook ware fits on the tripod and so does the wire grate just inside the fire box on the right. Each will cook differently. I can't quickly adjust the flames, but I can choose or change the cook ware as needed while cooking.
