But you can further enhance your summertime fire pit experience by following the tips listed below.

Bring Food and Beverages

When using a fire pit during the summer, bring plenty of food and beverages. Whether you’re camping deep in the woods or lounging in your backyard, you’ll develop quite the appetite being outdoors. So, prepare a cooler filled with food and beverages to keep you, and your guests, happy.

  • Pork tenderloin

Table and Seating

No summertime fire pit experience is complete without a table and seating.  Be sure to provide plenty of ample seating and a nice large table for your guests to place their food and drinks on as well as it provides a place to sit and eat.

Starting Your Fire Pit

When you’re ready to start your fire pit, place some tinder and kindling and medium-sized firewood inside and light it. It’s best to start your fire BIG so it’ll create equally BIG coals. Once your coals have formed, you can simply add a piece or two of firewood as needed to keep it going. This is the preferred method for starting a summertime fire, as it keeps the fire going without being overly hot.

These are just a few tips to enhance your fire pit experience during the summer. Just remember to make it a social experience by inviting friends and family over. People have gathered around fires for thousands of years; there’s just something naturally social associated with fires. Embrace this element by creating a social environment with your fire pit.
