The Popularity Of Backyard Campfires

A copper fire pit looks great as an addition to your backyard patio furniture. Copper has both a classic as well as modern look to it. One of the benefits of using an enclosed fire pit is the safety factor. Sitting around a fire is a wonderful evening pastime for the warm months and being able to do so in an area that confines the ashes and hot coals with a safety screen is very important. Backyard campfires are becoming increasingly popular. Where you used to only have a fire if you went away camping, now many people enjoy campfire on a regular basis in their own back yard.

Itís a great get together place for families, for a romantic evening under the stars or as an end to a great family fun day or big barbecue. A copper fire pit can be used not only for open fires but for roasting marshmallows, making the popular snack, símores and even for roasting hot dogs or other food as well as making snacks in open fire pie irons. Thereís something delicious and fun about cooking over an open fire. This fire pot also makes it a bit safer as it contains the fire for you in the unit and allows you to keep the size of your fire under control. A fire pit also lets you easily put your fire out when youíre ready to turn in for the night.

The copper fire pit looks great during the day too. Consider putting wrought iron chairs or benches around the copper fire pit as well as having other copper accessories in your yard in order to accentuate its good looks and create a nice conversation area. These units look great out on your patio or even in the grass. Be certain that you check your local laws for requirements on fire burning permits and heed warnings about ďno burnĒ periods where fire burning is not recommended. Also be sure that children and pets keep a safe distance from the copper fire pot both when itís in use as well as afterwards. Coals can take quite a while to cool down, even up to twenty four hours. Sometimes people report having a fire on a Friday night and still having coals to get a new fire started for Saturday night as well. Hereís a símores recipe for your copper fire pit. ∑ Roast your marshmallows on a stick or skewer and be careful that you donít get it or yourself burnt ∑ Place your gooey roasted marshmallow onto a graham cracker ∑ Top the marshmallow with a Square of Milk or Dark chocolate ∑ Sandwich with another Graham Cracker on top of the chocolate. Your marshmallow may be hot enough to melt the chocolate and fuse the crackers together or you can place in foil wrap and carefully put on your grill to melt the contents.

Have lots of napkins present, as these delectable treats are rather gooey! Enjoy!.
