An introduction to firepits

Firepits are specifically designed for outdoor use and are a popular feature in gardens, especially in patio and decking areas. Firepits provide a focal point for outdoor gatherings, offering both aesthetic appeal and functional convenience for cooking and heating. They also output a modest amount of cosy light, which people love to be near to. Some firepit owners also travel with firepits for use on family holidays in places such as campsites and/or beaches, although local regulations should be checked before using them.

Firepits must NEVER be used indoors as their open dispersion method poses significant risks for smoke inhalation, carbon monoxide poisoning and is also a fire hazard. Using a firepit rather than an open fire offers enhanced safety, as firepits contain the fire in a controlled space, reducing the risk of accidental spread. For indoor use choose fireplaces, log burners or wood burning stoves, and similar devices, which have the necessary ventilation systems.

Characteristics to expect from wood for fire pits

We recommend you look for the following characteristics when buying firepit logs:

  1. Low moisture content - always insist on wood with low moisture content, certainly below 20%
  2. Choose hardwood - the hardwoods we sell all have higher density and as such burn hotter and longer, giving you better value for money. Choose from ash, beech, birch, hornbeam, and oak - all make fine firepit logs! Click on these two articles to learn more about why to burn hardwood:

    2. Advantages of kiln dried hardwood logs for premium firewood performance
  3. Seasoned or kiln dried? - insist that all the wood for fire pits you choose is either seasoned or kiln dried. These have low moisture content and are "Ready to Burn":
    1. Seasoned wood - needs to have been manually dried for 8+ months.
    2. Kiln dried firewood - here at Cozilogs, we sell kiln dried firewood only
  4. Dimensions and measurements
  5. The following dimensions would make perfect firepit logs, as they would fit most firepits without the need for additional chopping:
    1. Length - the length should be between 25 to 40cm (10" to 16")
    2. Diameter - the diameter should be between 7.5 to 15cm (3" to 6")
  6. Buy split logs - these are perfect for quick ignition and burn more evenly than round logs
