Since I cover log rack and fire-pit in my previous post I’d like to share some of the accessories that goes well with them. Fire pits are of different shapes and sizes. Some fire pits are triangular, some are square, some are round, and still, some have hexed shaped fire pits. Some fire pits are very big and heavy while some others are light and portable. Whatever the case, we need accessories for style, comfort and safety.
Some of the must have accessories you should check out before you buy:
- Fire screen for protection from sparks
- Fire tools like tongs and fire poker
- Wood rack for neat storage of wood
- Fire grates for better circulation of air
- Grills for roasting or cooking
Fire screen guard is an essential item to keep you entertained without disturbances from sparks. It not only protects you from sparks but it also keeps you safe from fire spreading to other places on windy days. It is not impressive to have burnt holes in your expensive clothes from sparks. With this screen guard, sparks are efficiently contained in the fire pit and you don’t have to worry about random flying and spreading of ashes around the fire pit.
When the fire in your fire pit is dying, you need to refuel it from time to time and therefore; fire tools play a significant role to continue with your entertainment. You need to move logs for better circulation of air in the fire pit to get the true ambience of fire. You also need to lift up the screen for refueling and in such cases, fire tools comes very handy.
It is not impressive to randomly place wood here and there in your beautiful backyard or garden and it is for this reason that you need a wood rack to store it neat and clean. Storing wood in a rack is more comfortable to grab and make fire or refuel. However, style varies and so you may choose the style of your choice.
Some manufacturers offer fire grates with the fire pits while some do not, but if it is not included, you should get it from other stores, which is sold separately. The advantage of fire grate in your fire pit is that it enables you to enjoy the warmth without much smoke because the grate provides space for air to circulate within the pit.
Not all types of fire pits come with grills, but still you can get it or make one for yourself. Sometimes we need or want to take fire pits along with us in our camping trips and in such a situation, we can use the grills to roast hot dogs, melt marshmallows, or sear meat on it giving your feast a fine boost.
Safety and comfort is top priority to consider before buying any fire pit. If you don’t get all the accessories from the manufacturer, don’t hesitate to invest a few more dollars to buy it from other stores so that your enjoyment in the warm heat is not curtailed due to lack of it. Accessorize your fire pit so that you can keep enjoying the sight of starry nights on a moonlit night with your fire pit in the middle to warm you. Well, I guess we’re all set for some outdoor cooking. Foods cooked over Fire-pit are yummy, healthy and nutritious.
