Roasting Marshmallows on an Open Fire

One of my favorite things about fall is being able to roast marshmallows. Since we can’t have open fires in the park we live in, I decided to buy a fire pit. After much research, I decided to buy the deluxe model from Outland Living. The deluxe is identical to the standard model, but you also get the cover and carry kit with it, which is a plus for keeping rain out and makes it easier to carry and store when not in use.

The firepit is lightweight and uses propane. You can attach it to the small green bottles or a big one. We bought a splitter and have it attached to the same bottle our gas grill works off of. Set up is easy. It comes with the stones and the directions tell you how to assemble and it gives you extra rock as well. I love the warmth it provides on chilly nights and love that I can roast marshmallows and wieners anytime I want.

It took a few days before we actually used it, but use it we did for the first couple weeks we had it. Don’t get me wrong we still use it, just not as much!


All set up and ready to use!


I love mine to be burnt! The more the better!!!

More burnt than the last one!!!! YUMMY! YUMMY! YUMMY!
