Outdora FIRE PITS make memories

A beautiful sunset or a star- filled sky, your special person and hopefully a mosquito free night. What could be better than sharing this time together in front of your Outdora outdoor fire pit . Their large selection of wood burning fire pits offer different sizes, shapes and finishes.

There is a premier line of fire pit table bases in masonry, wrought iron or stainless steel. The granite or slate tops make clean up easy. Most of the tables can be outfitted with either gas or tumbled glass fire.

You can also take your fire with you when you travel. Another Outdora option to the fire pit is their fire rings. They are collapsible and are easy to assemble and disassemble. One of the models breaks into 5 pieces for easy transport and storage.

Several of the outdoor fire pits come equipped with wheels for easy and convenient mobility. Grilling options on some Outdora fire pits (and outdoor fireplaces) are also available with either a grill grate or rotisserie. For those of you who like to grill chicken, here's an easy marinade recipe:

1 teaspoon fresh ginger sliced fine
2 cloves of garlic sliced or crushed
1/4 cup each of lemon juice, olive oil and soy sauce
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 chopped green onion
Combine all ingredients and marinate chicken for at least 4 hours before grilling.

As always, fire safety is #1. With any fire or open flame, take precautions. Wood burning fires smell wonderful, the crackling sounds as the logs burn are delightful and the atmosphere around the fire is invigorating. But there are some things to keep in mind. Always use a spark screen to keep the sparks from escaping (be sure to have 10'-20' around the fire cleared of any fire hazards). Have a fire extinguisher or garden hose handy. Be sure to use either a fire poker or log grabber when adding or moving logs and never use lighter fluid to start the fire.
