Herein, what fuel is best for a fire pit?
Wood Briquettes: Again, the moisture content in wood briquettes makes them an ideal fuel for a fire pit. The moisture content in briquettes is typically around 7 - 10%. Which is lower than the recommended 20% of kiln dried logs.
Also, can you use a firelog in a fire pit? For outdoor fire pits or fireplaces, our specially designed multi-log open air™ crackling firelog can be used in a 2- or 3-log fire. However, Duraflame markets quick start and firestart natural wood firelighters, which are made from similar materials and are specifically designed to light wood fires.
Similarly one may ask, what do you burn in a fire pit?
Good firewood includes pinion wood, alder, cedar, oak, hickory, mesquite, pecan and even fruit woods, such as apple and cherry. Don't burn pressure-treated wood in a chiminea or any other fire pit or fireplace because it may contain harmful toxins.
Should I cover my fire pit?
Good covers even for square fire pits have vents built in so moisture will not condense underneath and cause damage to your fire pit. Keeping your fire pit properly covered will help protect it against rust and tarnish. Protecting your investment with a well-designed cover also helps keep your yard looking tidy.
