One thing I will miss is a double sided fireplace from my old place, but to be honest I rarely used it. About an average one maybe three times a year.

I have moved to cutler bay and EVERYONE here does fire pits or smoking meat outside, I smell it every weekend when it cools down.

The wood here flies off the shelves and I am after hubby for the fire pit honey do this year, so I ask do you have a fire pit in the winter even if you use it rarely?

I loved, absolutely loved my fire place in the old place but as my son told me this year... "Mom we don't have that anymore, but we can still do s'mores if we want to." and we can use the fire pit more.

Btw do any of you have fire pits in your yards? Tonight I would have loved it even if it was too warm, starter sticks would have been fine.

Fire pits? Yes. Pit bulls? No. Lol. I don't know why that popped into my brain but I just need to mention the Miami pit bull law and how crazy it is.

Anyway, yeah, I know plenty of people who have them. I don't live there now but I know it's common place. I live in Alabama now and we use the fire pits all year round for various things... Not just to keep warm. It's nice to just sit around the fire, play some music, talk with friends, etc.

We have talked to folks around the the lake and they all like the cheap wood for smoking, and get their big green eggs out.

Every time we had a barbeque in Miami, the neighbor called the fire department. We started to stock extra steaks to offer to the fireman when they came over.

I am not completely sure but it is my understanding that if the open fire is used for cooking they can't do a thing about it unless it is something unreasonably unsafe like a fire pit 10 feet high or under a chickee.

Yes, we use our outdoor fireplace all winter long.

The outdoor temps really don't have anything to do with whether we use it or not.

We use it mainly for the ambiance.

You are right. But it still does not stop the fire department from coming when a bad neighbor calls. Thankfully those neighbors were foreclosed on and are long gone.

Funny story about saving extra steaks for the firemen! Luckily none of our neighbors call the ones in our area when we use our fire pit. We just moved into our house this year and we had one at our old house in Laguna and I loved it! I agree with the person who said it's nice to just sit around the fire so I had to make sure to get one for our new house. ***MOD CUT***
