Even the most ornamental wood-burning fire pit can serve as a backyard grill. Of course it has to have the right equipment or design elements to do this. Typically, that comes in the form of a grill grate attachment. Some pits also have built-in cooking surfaces.

Can you barbecue on a propane fire pit?
Yes, you can. In addition to being safe to do, it’s probably easier to do it well on a propane gas fire pit. The flame from a gas fire pit is probably a little more controlled, not as hot, and much less smokey. All good things in my book when roasting marshmallows.

Is it better to burn wood or charcoal?
Charcoal has an energy value of around 29 MJ/kg, in other words charcoal burns hotter than wood, but when not insulated or not receiving sufficient air supply (including secondary air), the absence of flames or fast flowing CO2 gases will result in less efficient cooking due to a lower heat transfer efficiency (HTE).
Should I put sand in my fire pit?
The main benefits of using sand are that it helps to soak up the heat and evenly distribute the heat throughout the fire pit. Sand is also great for protecting the actual metal bowl from the intense heat the fire can put out. At the end of the day, there is no harm in putting sand in the base of a metal pit.
