Step 1: Unbox and Lay Out the Parts

Unbox your fire pit and lay out all the parts. Double-check everything against your checklist. Having everything in front of you makes the assembly process a lot easier and quicker.

Step 2: Wearing Safety Gear

Before diving into the assembly, we highly recommend you put on your safety gloves and glasses. As we're handling steel, we want to be extra safe. Trust us, it's always better to be safe than sorry!

Step 3: Assembling the Fire Pit

Ensure when assembling your fire pit that it is on a flat surface. Follow the supplied instructions for assembling the low smoke fire pit. The vents should sit at the base of the fire pit.

Step 4: Lighting the Low Smoke Fire Pit

Once you've assembled the fire pit, it's time to get that fire roaring. Ensure your fire pit is on a flat surface before lighting, and consider using pavers or something similar underneath to avoid burning or leaving marks.

Crumple some newspaper and place it at the bottom of the fire pit. This will act as your initial fuel. Add dry kindling or wood pellets on top of the newspaper. This material catches fire easily and helps ignite the larger logs. Light the newspaper. As it burns, it will ignite the kindling. Once the kindling catches fire, gradually add your larger logs or charcoal.

Maintenance Tips

Cleaning and Storage

  • After Each Use: Allow the fire pit to cool down completely. Remove any ash or debris.
