A Camping Fire Pit

Campfires are such an integral part of camping that it is almost impossible to imagine the perfect campsite without some flickering embers. We warm ourselves around them, roast marshmallows, and tell stories. They draw us together after the days activities end.

Unfortunately, a conventional campfire is limited in function. Yes, you can sit around it in a circle, but smoke will be chasing a third of the campers around and around. Yes, you can cook on it, but unless you are quite skilled, half of the food may end up in the fire. A camping fire pit, especially a Breeo fire pit, alleviates these issues.

For example, the simple task of boiling water can be difficult in a conventional campfire. When camping with a fire pit, however, that becomes much simpler. Particularly when the fire pit has an adjustable grill, allowing you to keep the water hot after its done boiling, by setting it higher off the flames.

Preparing some sauteed veggies is quite tricky when you do not have consistent heat and an adjustable grill height. The Double Flame Fire Pit and Stainless Steel Swing Away Grill works like a charm for this task.

Perhaps you want to prepare a quick dish of Quinoa? No problem.

Maybe its breakfast time and you want pancakes and bacon. Both can be a real hassle, but pancakes are especially tricky if you don’t have consistent heat.

Of course, much of the joy of a camping fire pit is sitting around it in the evening. Campfire songs, ghost stories, and accounts of the day are the usual. Unfortunately, on windy nights the experience is somewhat lessened by clouds of smoke. Usually just about the time someone gets comfortable, the wind changes direction slightly and they have to move again, coughing and choking. Not to mention everyone going to bed smelling like they just survived a forest fire. Luckily, the Double Flame fire pit, especially when burning dry branches and other dead-fall, burns very efficiently. The smoke becomes an aroma rather than a nuisance.

Of course, without the cloud of smoke, there may be more mosquito’s…(:

Happy camping!
