If you have thought for a long time about adding a fire feature to your backyard then it is for certain that not just any fire pit or fireplace will do. Patio Fire Pits & Fire Places provide light, warmth, and can even be used for cooking. By placing grates or grills over your patio fire pit, you can use it as a barbecue. Fire pit cooking has several advantages. The cooked food is usually more flavorful because it has been cooked over a real fire. Also, if the fire pit is large, it can be used to cook for many people at one time.
