giant smoke ring machine - burning-man 2005

This is the machine that creates the giant smoke rings!

I believe that it throws a large amount of fuel (probably gasoline) that is ignited in the air.­

The fuel is propelled using compressed natural gas, and the fuel is ignited just when it exits the vertical pipe (using a propane torch).­

The burning fuel creates a vortex, making a large black smoke ring in the sky.­
