    What kind of wood is best for a wood-burning fire pit?
    1 Answer
    You can use any seasoned wood, but remember that hardwood like Oak will spark less than softer wood like Pine.

    Can fire pits be set up to smell like cedar or wood?
    1 Answer
    Unfortunately, there is no product on the market to simulate the smell of wood when using a gas fireplace. You would need to use a true wood-burning fire pit for that effect.

    Can I use charcoal in a wood-burning fire pit?
    1 Answer
    It would not be recommended to burn charcoal in a wood fire pit since charcoal burns at a much higher temperature than wood.

    I have a natural gas brick fire pit. I have put sand in the bottom and a mixture of lava rock and fire glass above the fire ring.  My question: Should I cover the fire ring with sand before adding the lava and fire glass. Where do you recommend the sand level to be?

    1 Answer
    Different burners have different requirements in this regard.  We recommend checking your installation manual and/or contacting the manufacturer for advisement on this, to be sure you get accurate information based on your specific model.

    Can one burn fresh cut wood in a fire pit?
    2 Answers
    This can be done in our wood fire pits. Please note that some of the fire pits we sell are intended to burn gas only.

    Depending on the moisture content of the fresh-cut wood, you may not be able to get much of a fire out of it, and it may be smoky and unpleasant.

    How do I protect my deck from the heat that these fire pits produce?
    1 Answer
    Ideally, a pad constructed of brick or stone pavers would be used. These usually give sufficient insulating value to prevent discoloration of the decking.

    What are rules for clearances for flame to combustible ceiling like in a screened in porch?
    1 Answer
    A gas fire pit can be installed under a covered opening, but there are hefty clearance requirements that must be observed. Most burners require an overhead clearance of at least 10 feet, which does not include the height of the burner or mounting pedestal itself.

    With a gas log fire pit, can you roast marshmallows?
    1 Answer
    Due to harmful chemical residue that can be released from the fireplace logs and media, it is not recommended for food to come in contact with the combustion gases.
