    I bought a welding blanket but it is heavy.
    When I was a kid the only time we were in the house was to eat and sleep.

    Why not use a Mylar space blanket clipped to your tarp that's over or close to the fire. That will also help reflect some more of the heat toward you if you rig your tarp right.

    If you build a reflector wall of wood next to your fire that's not quite under your tarp that will help reflect the heat back under the tarp also. I am not a big fan of a fire under my tarp.

    you don't need a fire retardant heavy tarp. if all you want is a fire while raining, keep your tarp high and fire small. it will be fine... There are all kinds of ways you can setup a tarp with fire and rain. experiment.

    That's generally what I would recommend.
    Been using this method for years and it never backfired.

    I bought one of those "fire blankets" and took it to a seamstress to cut and fold the edges into 4 different pieces - cause it was about 4 x 6 and I just wanted to try it as a base for a fire in the snow or making a chimney to route smoke. When I picked it up, the woman said she had a problem because she usually melts the edges so they won't fray. But, you know, "Fire Blanket". She might have missed that part.
    In order to see what few have seen, you must go where few have gone. And DO what few have done.

    I’ve used plenty of fire blankets over the years as a welder. I can tell you firsthand, they burn nicely.

    I love seeing zombie threads rise from the dead. I get to read interesting posts I missed the first time around.
