But before you get to excited and start lighting stuff on fire, you will want to learn about the details of an outdoor fire pit.
For wood burning fire pits always use a safety screen. They come in various shapes and sizes and will help contain sparks and flying embers. Some models are sold with them, however if you are building fire pit make sure you incorporate a screen into the design. Materials used in fire pits should be carefully considered. Porous stone, non treated river rocks and even cinder blocks should not be used inside a fire pit. When placed near intense heat, they can explode. Standard building bricks will eventually crack and need replacing over time. In order to prevent this fire pits should be lined with fire rated materials such as firebricks or thick steel rings. Use fire rated mortar. Adhesives are not advised as when heated they can give off unhealthy fumes.
Wrap Up Sounds fairly simple doesn’t it. Well it is, except for the work involved to do it. This guide is about a 2 day project as far as the actual building of it. In the title of this guide I mentioned a Multi Purpose Fire Pit. Not only does this pit make a cool addition to your backyard, but you can also have a custom made grill grate or rack created for it. So you can use it to grill out on as well as a fireplace. Not to mention it works great for the kids to roast marshmallows on to. Enjoy your new Fire Pit.
FUEL: Given the right circumstances, most substances will burn or combine with oxygen in combustion, a chemical process that liberates heat. (Remember that fire is the heat and light resulting from combustion.) However, the temperature at which things will burn in fire pits, called the ignition point or kindling point, varies according to the substance. For example, the kindling point of film, nitrocellulose, is only 279 degrees Fahrenheit - not recommended for use in fire pits. For wool it is 401 degrees Fahrenheit - obviously making fire pits hard to light, and for newsprint 446 degrees Fahrenheit - perfect for fire pits. What Fuel should I use in my Fire Pit? Wood or charcoal can be used in most fire pits. Some fire pits run on gas, a great alternative. See Artistic Fire Pits for converting your fire pit to gas.
