Tips & Warnings
Use only dry, seasoned wood for cooking over a fire pit. Green wood will not burn well and produces too much smoke. Dead wood is better for a clean-burning, high-temperature fire.
Be aware of fire safety at all times. Keep a bucket of water nearby in case you need to put out the fire. Check to make sure fire pits are permitted wherever you are before starting a fire. Make sure the fire is properly enclosed by rocks, bricks or other flame-resistant material.
