If you’ve made the decision to install a propane fire pit in your backyard, congratulations! Fall is the perfect time to gather your friends and family around a warm fire in your backyard. Traditional wood-burning fire pits take quite some time and effort to build a fire, and the cleanup can be a messy nightmare. With propane fire pits, all you have to do to build a fire is flip a switch, which feels like magic. Additionally, you won’t have to constantly clean your fire pit due to its absence of charred wood and soot. Throughout time, people have gathered around fire not just for warmth but also to socialize and discuss issues both mundane and important. It’s also quite common for people to roast food over fires, and we would like to discuss some foods you can roast over your fire pit.


As a child, did you ever roast marshmallows over a fire and make s’mores? Don’t worry if you never participated in such a ritual. Now that you own a fire pit right in your own backyard, you can make s’mores as much as you want to! Truly a delicious and sweet treat, all you need are graham crackers, some chocolate bars, and large marshmallows. Don’t buy the little marshmallows because they are difficult to roast, which could, unfortunately, turn you off to s’mores forever. First, break some graham crackers apart and place the chocolate bars in between the graham crackers, making a sandwich. Secure a few marshmallows on a stick and roast them over your fire. Once your marshmallows have turned the perfect shade of brown, remove them from the fire. Place them on top of the chocolate in between the graham crackers, which cause the chocolate to melt. The final part involves consuming these sweet treats in as few bites as possible because they are just so incredibly tasty!

Banana Boats

Although a variety of different variations of banana boat recipes exist on the internet, the basic ingredients are chocolate bars broken into small pieces, small marshmallows, and bananas. You will also need some heavy-duty tin foil for roasting as well. Some banana boat aficionados like to add caramel or other sweets to their banana boats, so you can customize your banana boat if you wish. Leaving the banana peel on the banana, take a knife and slice lengthwise into the fruit. Place little pieces of chocolate and marshmallows into the center of the banana, and cover it with tin foil. Place the foil packet near the fire, wait a few minutes for the chocolate and marshmallows to melt, and remove from the fire using tongs. Open up the packet, peel the banana, and enjoy!
