1. Are your fire pits smokeless?
- Simply put, yes. Every fire will product some degree of smoke, especially when getting started and building temperature. Smokeless means that the amount of smoke produced is significantly less than the standard fire pit.
- Once your fire is up to temperature you will have no issues with smoke.
- We recommend always using dry wood. If you are using wet wood, even a smokeless fire pit won't be able to work. Water + Fire do not mix.

3. How do I start my fire? *refer to our main menu for instructional videos*
- Step 1. Lay dry logs 2x2 parallel and across the top of each other (log cabin) and add kindling/small wood chunks in the center.
- Step 2. Place two logs upright in between the log cabin and squeeze your log cabin tight to hold your logs placed in step 2 upright.
- Step 3. Light your fire.
- Step 4. Break down your logs if you see smoke. This is an indication that you just need to stir your fire up.
- Step 5. Enjoy your fire and add more logs as necessary. Don't worry about log orientation at this point. Your fire should have plenty of heat across the entire base.
4. How do I cook on my fire pit?
- We supply grilling accessories for the outdoor adventurist looking to make cooking fun.
- Grilling grate: Establish a fire with plenty of heat but allow your fire to die down before grilling so the flames don't burn your food. Remember: when you use a standard grill flames are no good. Even when the flames go away, there will be plenty of heat and your fire will be so hot that smoke will not be an issue. Remember to always use dry wood as well to avoid smokiness.
Sear Plate: Refer to our instructional video in the main menu on how to season and use your sear plate properly without damaging it.
