Fact: A summer evening spent around a fire is an evening well spent. The fire pit is the ideal vehicle to make this scenario a reality. The metal enclosures make it easy to build manageable backyard blazes. They come in a variety shapes and sizes, from basic cauldrons to elegant enclosed models, and are fueled by either wood, propane, or natural gas. They’re also safer than standard camp fires: because the pits sit above the ground, there’s less of a chance that the fire will accidentally spread.
Big point: Fire pits are friggin’ great. And, if you don’t have one sitting in your backyard, today might be the day to consider because Amazon is having a nice sale on a variety of fire pits from Legacy Heating.
