How to Create an Epic Fire with the Gather Grill

Gathering around a fire pit has been a human tradition for centuries. Fire pits have been used not only for cooking meals and keeping warm, but also for community-building activities and socialization. The modern BBQ fire pit is used today for these same purposes, but the Gather Grill fire pit also takes things to the next level!

We no longer need to sit on the hard ground around a basic fire or awkwardly stand around a cheap, bulky propane grill. Instead, we can have truly epic experiences around the modern, multi-purpose Gather Grill and create memories that will last a lifetime. This handcrafted and aesthetically designed grill will make you the most popular host in town.

So, what are you waiting for? Keep reading to learn more about how you can create an epic fire with your Gather Grill and be the center of the party.

Use quality firewood

Quality firewood is the first key to creating an epic fire experience. 

We’ve all been there. We gather around a fire excited for a long night of entertainment, only to have to call it quits early because the fire won’t start, or the logs create too much unpleasant smoke. But did you know that it is possible to build a smokeless fire in your fire pit?

Use high-quality, kiln-dried firewood. Never use wet, old, or moldy wood in your fire pit. This will help keep unpleasant smoke and smells to a minimum, and create a far more beautiful flame that provides warmth throughout the night.

Use an epic fire pit

The fire pit that you use can have a major impact on how great of an experience you have using it. Of course, we think that the Gather Grill is pretty epic. 

Our largest Grill, the Reunion, is 46” in diameter. That means you can comfortably fit 10 guests around the Reunion table, or you can fit even more people around the fire pit for larger, epic parties. Host large family reunions, like the name says, or cook for the local high school football team. Whatever your desired event, the Reunion has you covered!

Even our smaller size grilled, such as the 28” tailgater, can comfortably sit up to 7 people for an epic get-together.

Provide great seating

Nothing can ruin a fire pit party more than not having a comfortable place to sit. Be sure to provide ample seating for your guests. 

The height of the Gather Grill can be adjusted to accommodate either bar stools or patio chairs. Adjust the grill to your desired height and get chairs that fit well in the space. This will ensure that your guests want to get comfortable and stick around for a day or night full of epic fire pit gathering.

Cook incredible food

Just as we have deep, emotional traditions tied to gathering around the fire, we also have deep, emotional connections to food. Some of our best memories are created around food and the aroma of epic cooking.

So why would you build an epic fire only to cook boring, ordinary food? The Gather Grill provides multiple cooking surfaces and offers incredible flexibility for your inner chef.

Take your entertainment to the next level by cooking high-quality, epic recipes on your fire pit grill and give your guests something to remember. Play around with new recipes and secret ingredients.

Serve epic beverages

Don’t forget about drinks! A cool new cocktail, hot beverage, or refreshing soft drink can go a long way toward creating an epic experience for your guests. Try something new and provide a variety of options to keep your guests happy and hydrated.

Gather with awesome people

At Gather Grill, we are all about creating connection and community with awesome people. Whether you are connecting with family, hosting a community event, or gathering with friends, be sure to invite good company to share in the epic fire experience with you. Because isn’t that what life is all about?

Share some epic stories

There’s something about a fire that makes for great storytelling. Throughout history, some of the best conversations likely happened over a fire. And of course, we’ve all probably told a few ghost stories over a campfire with friends growing up.

Epic fire pits like the Gather Grill are designed to facilitate social interaction and make it easy for your guests to share their epic stories around the fire.

Practice safety

Don’t confuse “epic” with “dangerous!” 

A key to any epic fire pit experience is practicing good safety around the fire. Keeping everyone safe will help your guests relax, appreciate the experience, and create lasting positive memories of their time spent around the fire. Epic fire pits like the Gather Grill were designed with safety in mind. 

Remember — catching your yard on fire or going to the hospital is not the right kind of epic!

Have a music playlist ready

Good music can help set the atmosphere at a gathering and elevate an already epic experience. Give your guests the total experience by having a curated music playlist ready to go for your event.

Decorate your space

While the Gather Grill tends to be the central focus of any good fire pit gathering, don’t forget about the rest of your space. Outdoor decorations and good outdoor lighting can go a long way toward creating an epic atmosphere for your guests.

Make the perfect s’more

S’mores are the perfect mix of tasty, timeless, and nostalgic. Making s’mores is a fun and memorable way to pass the time around the fire pit — for young kids and adults alike. Get the ingredients ready to make the perfect s’more at your next gathering.

About us

When Jed Strange bought a fire pit in February of 2020, he had no idea that it was about to inspire him to create one of the most innovative multi-function outdoor cooking devices available today.

With the COVID-19 pandemic shutdown closing operations at Strange Farms, a family-run corporate and private retreat venue, Jed found himself with some extra time on his hands. He sat down and looked at his new fire pit. His goal of gathering people around it physically was put on hold, but the desire for connection remained.
