Here's a good example of how not to do a fire pit.
This is Grass River Provincial Park in northern Manitoba.
That tiny little rusty breadbox-size thing is the fire pit. The grating on top is welded shut. The only opening is facing the Jeep.
Feeding it requires bending way down and trying to not burn your hand as you shove wood through the small opening.
It is not a setup that allows you to stare into the flames or poke the fire with a stick.
It's too bad, as the park is otherwise a very nice place.
