We really don't have a thread dedicated to hanging out by the fire pit. Important decisions are made, friendships are strengthened, food is cooked, beverages are consumed, and in general stress is released by watching a fire. Post up your pictures here.

Burned up my curly willow brush over at my neighbors this afternoon as his fire ring is larger than mine. Willow smells like urine when burned even when bone dry. Put some wood on after that was done and we'll roast some dogs once this coals up a bit.

...now there's some fire pit seats. Reclinin' only means I gotta pry myself out the next mornin. Lol

The fellow that owns the place sadly burns pretty much anything he can find. He has loads of wood but seems to like to burn speaker boxes, old chairs and used flooring. I am making him a nice pile of wood for the pit so maybe he can curb his desire to burn trash! I am sure once the seats get mouldy they will be set ablaze as well. :(

Could comment but let's keep the derails to designated threads.

...here's a shot of my back patio...little fire pit, usually have to buy a couple a year...we'll burn em out. Just can't get nothing rip-roarin going on in a subdivision without arse-hole neighbors calling the law and chit. We've had fires on these little pits 6-8 feet high at times with little splits, then ya gotta focus your efforts and try to keep the 'stumblers' and the 'firewalkers' outta the thing, Lol. We've cooked a many of rack of ribs, half-chickens, leg qtrs, fish, you name it, firing the grills up...and plenty of cold ones to go around. I usually grill two/three times throughout the week after work, weather permitting, every weekend if we ain't working, hunting deer, turkeys, hogs, or fishing. Just good ol' shootin the chit times and everybody gets fat and happy.

You said it all. Campfires are magic.
