Christmas is around the corner, and warm celebrations call for warm family gatherings. Outdoor celebrations, cheering, and laughter call for some barbeque and some fire!
But what if you don’t have a barbecue? Well, who says you need to invest in a barbecue to enjoy some grilled luxuries?
A good old fashioned barbecue used by our ancestors is nothing but a fire pit! With some Stringybark firewood, you can get all the creativity you want to and grill your favorite cuisine among laughter and beers.
Benefits of using fire pits instead of old fashioned barbecue:
A thrill of inclusion of every member!
You can make fire pits the star of the evening yet enjoy the night with everyone. Instead of cracking yourself in some corner of the barbecue, you can crack open the beers with everyone while giving each one a chance to try their hands on the safe pits.
Coal and logs will do the deed:
You can put the fire pits in the center of your evening and enjoy a smokeless night with some firewood and smokeless coal. The combination of smokeless coal and kiln-dried hardwood logs will provide heat and flavor together.
Easy to handle and cook!
It might sound complicated, but it’s much easier than you can think of. There are many imaginative ways you can cook in a fire pit, efficiently and enthusiastically.
With skewers there are endless possibilities. You should use two parallel skewers rather than a single skewer. The wooden skewers automatically move the pieces close together. Get your skewers from the local butcher, or make one on your own!
You can buy a rack to fit the top of the fire pit. Usually, fire pits come with a grilling gate, but you also have a cheap alternative. Grills can free you and help your guests to try their hands on something interesting and innovative on their own.
A traditional way to bring essence to your curry, with the help of the fire pit, you can enjoy a pot cooked curry or even some stew. Barbecues are for the monotonous grill, but pot cooking reminds one of the good old days. You can hang the pots on the tripod and enjoy a mesmerizing view.
Things to keep handy before lighting your fire pit:
Firewood and smokeless coal: Buy the kiln firewood from Sydney’s bulk firewood suppliers. Choose a supplier that offers you more than what you pay for.
Bucket of water: You don’t want any accidents to ruin your night.
The burn period is the most noticeable distinction between hardwood and softwood. Because hardwood fibers are denser than softwood fibers, a log of the same size will take longer to burn, burn hotter, and emit less smoke than a softwood log.

Equipment: Firewood and coals aren’t all you need to light your fire pits. You also need aluminum foil, skewers, tongs, a grill rack and a heat-resistant pot to enjoy a hand cooked delicacy this festive night.
Tips for buying the firewood:
- The best wood to burn is hardwood. Hardwoods burn longer than other woods.
- They burn cleaner, meaning it creates less smoke and residue than other woods.
- These denser woods produce a hotter, stronger, and long-lasting fire.
Christmas is a lovely time to remember your joys and forget your sorrows. So get together with your family and loved ones, and make this Christmas the most memorable one of your life!
