Grilling grate for heavy duty fire pit What do you get in the box

 

You get a heavy duty powder coated steel round fire bowl that is 24 inches across and 10 inches deep.  With the ring around the bowl it is 28 inches across, the ring will allow you to move your fire pit with proper protection while it is still hot.  The bowl will be supported with four tube type legs that are welded on.  Four welded on supports will let you install the grilling grate to cook your favorite meal.

The fire pit will be 14 inches high without spark lid or 19 inches tall with spark lid.  You will get a tool to lift the spark lid off and stir the fire, a poly cover to protect your fire pit during storage.  The total weight of the fire pit is about 50 pounds.

The lattice design on the sides has a screen inside to keep the embers from coming out the sides.  The open lattice provides a better air flow for better wood burning.  You can also get a view of the wood burning with out getting real close to the fire.

Assembly and how to use

 

The only assembly on this item is getting it out of the box.  The legs are welded on so you do not have to worry about them falling off.

After every thing is out of the box just put the wood inside and start your first fire.  Insert grilling grate for cooking Hamburgers or Brats.
