- What to burn in Urban fire pit?
Hi all,Posted 6 years ago
Thinking of getting one of these cheap little open fire things for out the back garden but wondered what you actuallyu burn in them ? I stay in a suburb and dont want to p*ss the neighbours off with a smoke joe campfire going. Is there a low smoke fuel which i can use? or is it just logs?sharkbaitMember
I’d have thought wood is fine, but I live in the sticks and have no experience of how much smoke you can produce.Posted 6 years ago
If you’re worried about the smoke suppose you could also use a mixture of wood (to start it quickly), charcoal and smokeless coal (charcoal would get going quite quickly and would help get the smokeless coal going).
This may all be b*****s though as I’ve never tried it.heywayneMember
Just don’t do it on a summer’s evening when your neighbours all have their windows wide open like a neighbour at our previous house used to. He’d also burn some pretty toxic smelling stuff in his too. Plum.
Dry wood should be fine.
I know we’re not allowed to have fires (incinerators,open fires etc) on our allotment during certain months of theyear, not sure if it applies to households too…Posted 6 years agosupertrampMember
nice dry well seasoned wood, not much smoke and it smells nice 🙂
smokless fuels, are not ver good for the environment (mostly by the way they are made). They also have a nast ‘chemical’ smell and some can to very (dangerously) hot, could damage your fire pit and of course they just give off a mean, dull, orange glow, and no lovely dancing flames – which is why you have a fire in the first place 🙂Posted 6 years ago
Thanks for all the replies! I want one cos I saw some pics a mate posted where he was sitting outside with his glowing nicely and a few glasses of wine. Looked amazing. Also had a disposable BBQ at the campsite at Glen Nevis when a few of us were up this year, and we piled some branches on after cooking. Was lovely to sit round and we lasted till 11pm before we got told to put it out :–)Posted 6 years ago
