How can you get the most from an outdoor fire pit or fireplace? 

If you’re a gourmet chef or an aspiring chef who likes to host lovely multi-course dinner parties outdoors, you may want to consider a full outdoor kitchen. But, for all of you who simply want to enjoy the experience of an outdoor fire with food as part of the backdrop, you can cook over a fire pit. Keep in mind, they aren’t as precise as actual grills or ovens, but if you include a cooking grate, your fire pit can provide some fun, tasty treats for you, your family and your guests.

With an outdoor fireplace, you can throw more parties more often. You can host outdoor parties in the middle of winter (in many conditions and locales) when “cabin fever” is at epidemic levels. The warmth of the fire frees you from having to rely on the temperature outdoors, allowing you to throw an impromptu party in February and March. (Those who live in seasonal climates know how great this can be.) Being outside in fresh air on a dry clear winter night is one of the most refreshing, exhilarating and therapeutic activities seasonal climate residents can do.

And, for those of you who aren’t’ that social and prefer solitude, your outdoor fireplace or fire pit will serve you well. Evenings are beautiful all year round. Whether it’s winter, spring, fall, or summer, sitting peacefully, feeling and listening to a soothing fire, is a relaxing way to add dimension to your daily home life.

Being outdoors on beautiful nights – regardless of the temperature – lets you exit your home and be completely transported to another place – without leaving your driveway. The glow and ambiance of an outdoor fire is beautiful in and of itself. When your line of vision is an uninterrupted view of a glowing fire, y9ou feel better instantly.
