How to Cook With Fire Pits

Fire pits are not merely used to produce warmth but also can be used to cook, keep your dishes warm, roast marshmallows, etc. Along with a fire pit a grate is necessary to cook on your pit.

Fuel also plays an important role in adding extra flavor to your dishes. Wood or charcoal could be the best fuel for using in the firepits as they have the property of adding extra flavor to meat and vegetables which are cooked on it. Barbeques have more advantage and they can easily add a unique flavor when foods are smoked over woodchips. Charcoal is comparatively cheaper with wood and cooks the food including meat and vegetables more quickly than wood. Wood takes more time to cook but it typically what you are burning in your pit anyway so it works just fine.

In addition to charcoal and wood, propane can also be used as fuel in gas fire pits. Propane pits cannot be made by people directly. Propane has little advantage over wood and charcoal, it gets heated up quickly. It is best for grilling and it burns clearer but does not add any flavor to food.

A tripod or rotisserie can be used instead of throwing steak over grill grates. Meats can be cooked more evenly by using a rotisserie while guests relax in the backyard. A chicken or meat made using rotisserie tastes good more than a food cooked over an open flame.

Cooking foods using a firepit grill will be more enjoyable and guests can enjoy the natural environment while tasting the delicious food cooked over an open flame. Carmelization (dark brown or golden crust on meat or chicken) appears on foods that are cooked on fire pit grate that makes the food more appealing and attractive. It also enhances the overall flavor of dish.

Safety comes first when installing or buying a firepit and grill, it is essential to have a fire extinguisher handy. Fire pits can easily fall and hurt people if it is not placed firmly on ground. Also grill and rotisserie equipments must be attached sturdily to hold the food.

By cooking your favorite cuisine you can enjoy the mouthwatering dish with warmth produced by the fire pits on a chill evening.
