Can you use BBQ as a fire pit?
Always keep the coal grate inside the grill when using it as a fire pit. … Fires built directly on the grill bottom will snuff out quickly. Kettle-style grills provide the best surface area for use as fire pits and come with completely removable lids, essential for open fires.
How many logs do you need for a fire pit?
Just three logs (9.6 lb) produce a fire for up to three hours, equivalent to a full bundle of firewood (about 16-20 lb), and produce 48% more heat energy per pound than regular wood. Always start with two logs and add more logs to extend the burn.
