What is a fire pit and should I get one?
Fire pits are a great way to enjoy the outdoors and they make for a great ambiance. Plus, they can also be used as an outdoor kitchen.
Fire pits are usually circular in shape and most people use them for cooking food or roasting marshmallows. They can also be used to warm up during the winter and they provide a perfect setting for social gatherings with friends and family.
What are the different types of Fire Pits?
A fire pit is a hole in the ground or in a stone or brick ring. It is designed to contain a fire. Heat produced by the fire warms people near the pit, and smoke from the fire carries up through an opening in the top of the pit to keep people warm.
Types of Fire Pits:
Gas fireplace – The gas fireplace is one of the most popular types of fire pits in North America, because it can be used indoors or outdoors, and does not need to be fed with wood.
Wood stove – Wood stoves are typically used for heating buildings rather than for cooking food. They are usually found indoors in houses, apartments, condos, etc., but are sometimes used outdoors as well.
Electric fireplace- The electric fireplace is another type of fire pit.
How do I maintain my Fire Pit?
One way to keep your outdoor fireplace looking great is to use the correct type of firewood. Dry, hardwood like oak or apple wood will provide the best burning qualities.
Treating your outdoor fireplace with a high quality wax like carnauba will help protect it from the elements and keeping it looking great for years to come.
