sotv Posted January 24 Share Posted January 24 After some advice, getting the very bottom of the garden cleared out and going to be left with area (hopefully flat) but bare earth about 24ft by 12ft, thought about using it as an area to sit and cook on with cast iron over an earth based firepit and put some gravel or bark chippings around the outside of it Anyone ever created an earth based fire pit, that you can cook over glowing embers, happy to invest in a campfire grill for using skillets etc over it and maybe a tripod to hang a large dutch oven or use the dutch oven over the embers also. Never cooked like this before, want it to be easy as possible, not looking at an above ground enclosed brick built one, anybody have one or used an open earth based one before, what is involved hole wise in the ground, as well as size, for a 12 ft clearance in total for flames to be safe etc and how long can these pits last for and how are the ashes removed and drainage achieved etc Starting from scratch as a complete novice, so any help would be gratefully received Thinking of something like this around 4-5ft in width, if that would be safe within a 12ft working area in total Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
