How to Light a Fire Pit?
That depends on the fire pit you opt for. If you choose a gas-powered fire pit, all you need to do is switch the gas on and spark the flame, then sit back and enjoy. For a fire pit that resembles better a fire bowl, you’ll need tinder, kindling (such as small sticks and wood splinters), and logs of firewood. Start small and safely by lighting the tinder and a few pieces of kindling, and once the fire has taken a bit, add the firewood.
How to Light a Chiminea?
Place logs, firewood, and scrunched up newspaper into the chiminea, but refrain from using liquid fuel. Add some kindling, and then light the newspaper pieces in between everything. When necessary, add more kindling and logs until you’ve got a healthy fire. Each chiminea comes with its own specifications, such as size, so make sure you carefully read the instructions that comes with it before you try to light it.
What is a Chiminea?
A chiminea is a freestanding fireplace that you load from the front, rather than from the top as you would a fire pit or bowl. Typically, they have a chimney leading up from their bowl-like fire chamber to release the smoke. They can make for very atmospheric outdoor heating and garden furniture, and are typically clay or brick.
