    I was a nice day, no wind for getting rid of old pallets and some splitting stumps. By the end of the day the pit had 2 feet of ash. It was still red hot Sunday night. Not the biggest back yard fire, but in our community they don't let you burn a uncontained fire. Im sure you guys have some better burns, lets see the pictures.

    I use to have fairly large bon fires with my buddies. Now it just mostly regular bon fires with the kids and wife in the bark yard.
    both have great memories.

    Nice.
    I've wanted to have a pit fire since before the snow melt. It's either been too wet, or it's raining, or it's too windy, or like it's been for at least 2 weeks......too dry.
    When's baby bear gonna' show up so I can have conditions that are 'just right"?
    The buildup in the pit is really getting a bit crazy. I WANT fire!

    Posts in another thread but here's our pit. We do several fires a week throughout the summer. Nothing like a fire out back!

    Yep the wheels have taken some heat. This pit used to have a propane bottle hanging off the bottom for starting the fire. Worked great. A bit scarry knowing the kind of fires we have. I glad it broke off. Can't wait for the summer, sittin around the fire sipping on a bottle of red. It dosen't get any better!!!

    We used to only hava a fire while camping. Then these back yard fire pits came along. Now enjoy a back yard fire during the day at home. Nice use of tree trimmings and brush clean up. We have two acres of a mostly wooded lot so there is no shortage of stuff to burn. That is about the only time the wife doesn't demand the tv be on!
