Many outdoor fire pits do not have a rim, or mantel, to rest your feet close to the fire or set down your drink when tending the fire. In addition, when you are cooking on your fire pit grill, you do not have a place to set your grilling utensils and condiments.
Outdoor fire pits are great if you are looking for that feel of a campfire but you want it in the comfort of your own back yard. Now days though, it seems that so many people are just so busy with the family, community activities, and work that they just don't want to loose the time it takes to start a wood burning fire pit.
You enjoy a nice warm fire in the outdoor fire pit or in the fireplace in the living room but you are not very fond of all of those trips to the woodpile. If that sounds familiar, then it is time to get a wood rack or log hoop.

An afternoon or evening relaxing in the backyard is a great way to spend some time with the family and friends, or even alone after the day at work.

The problem that many people have with portable barbecue grills is that it is very hard to get them to maintain a good temperature for what you are barbecuing or grilling and they don’t create that heat evenly over the entire grilling surface.
If your grilled burgers seem to taste a little dull this series of articles may give you some ideas you can use to help you create those delicious gourmet grilled burgers that you want. In the previous post we covered selecting the right type of ground beef for your barbeque hamburgers.

To build a good house you have to start with a good foundation, no doubt about that.
If you are thinking about a backyard fire pit you need to be concerned about safety. Outdoor fire pits are popular as a centerpiece for entertaining in the backyard these days and to keep everything safe you need to consider two things before selecting yours; safe design and safe use. Wood fires create sparks, if you are considering a wood burning fire pit make sure it comes with a spark screen. Many popular fire pits have designs cut into their sides; animals, trees, college and professional sports logos, family names, and the like.
Why a stand alone fire pit - Built in or in the ground fire pits are big, a little bit expensive, and umm…. permanent. You can’t take them with you to the beach or the next time you are tailgating before the game. Another choice is a portable stand alone fire pit. They are usually less expensive than a built in and there is a wide variety of beautiful styles and designs to choose from. You can take them with you to the park and many fire pits come with a cooking grill included so that you can grill up some steaks or burgers or leave it off to roast weenies or marshmallows.
Many folks who love bbq grilled food just don’t have the space (or the budget) for any of the really cool grills you can find at may local retailers these days. If you live in an apartment or a condo you know what I mean and even many home owners have limited space in their outdoor living area. The solution is to dine out which is not very economical and not always convenient and you only have the choice of what they offer. Another option is the smaller portable bbq grill. That way you can grill up what you want with your own recipes any time you want.
