Install Border rings
Invest in a fire pit that has a ring. There are a number of manufacturers who offer a variety of these rings. You can choose from a variety of options that have silhouettes of animals and trees to add quality to the campsite, and even regular steel mesh and glass. Depending upon the use that pit is put to, the ring can be selected.
For example, if trying out scrumptious barbecue recipes outdoors is the idea then the mesh made from stainless steel or designed extensions are a good bargain. The rings help create the campfire ambiance and are available in a variety of sizes, too.
Choose Wide-base designs
When choosing a fireplace, it is important that you first consider the common use that the pit will be put to, the number of people you think will use the facility, and the area where the fireplace would be commonly used. It is safer to go in for the widest base design available in the size-category you are looking at.
The pits come in a wide range of materials and sizes. They are placed off the ground, if not permanently placed at ground level, and help you to get real value by optimizing the outdoor space. The wide base offers more heat and additional cooking space.
The smoke vents are usually sold along with the fire pits. The front opening of the vent functions like a chimney for the smoke to be re-directed. Smoke vents are made from a variety of materials, like clay, copper, and cast iron. They are a big help when you are entertaining more than your usual guest capacity and when there are children at the barbecue.
The vents enable everyone to enjoy the crackling sound, warmth and cozy ambiance, without being inconvenienced by the smoke and cinders.
You need to ensure that the structure is away from the access point to the main indoor living area, electrical appliances, plants and trees, and overhangs. Other things to look out for include dry grass, hay, and stacks of open firewood. Proper and planned positioning would also facilitate a central location for encouraged conversation and interaction.
Fat-wood, a natural product of highly combustible pine resin makes great fuel. Hard woods, such as oak, not only produce less smoke, but are also extremely safe to use, children-friendly, even.
