Enjoying my Fire

There is nothing more relaxing than sitting back and enjoying a nice fire. I like to have fires all year round. Watching the flames is also very therapeutic. If you are entertaining, your guest will enjoy the fire just as much as you.

Things You'll Need

  • Outdoor fire pit or fire bowl
  • Pieces of Wood
  • Tikki Oil or Lighter Fluid

First you should arrange your wood in your fire pit. We like to arrange it leaning against the wall facing where we will be sitting. You can also add a few pieces of paper made into a ball underneath the wood to help get the wood burning.

Next sprinkle the tikki fluid or lighter fluid on the wood. You should then prepare to light immediately.

Using a lighter, preferably those you hold with a handle. Bic makes a good one. Touch the wood with the lighter and prepare to get back quickly as the fire should ignite fast. Now, put on your lid and sit back and enjoy.

Tips & Warnings

  • Walmart has a pit similar to the one in this picture for about $60.00
  • Be care after you put your fluid on your wood and go to start the fire. Be prepared to jump back quickly as sometimes this ignites with a big flame burst.
