Safe Use - How To Use Your Smokeless Fire Pit

  • Make sure you have sufficient ventilation when using the fire pit.

  • Dependant on the generation of firepit - Make sure the fire pit is placed on a non-flammable, heat-resistant surface such as a stone pit base, concrete, brick, sand, gravel, or other non-flammable material. All current generation Smokelis fire pits are all surface safe.

  • If you intend to use your Smokelis on a timber or composite deck, please ensure you also purchase the Ember-Shield which will protect your surface from any embers that may fall out.

  • Do not use combustible liquids, such as gasoline or kerosene, to start or accelerate the fire.

  • Do not leave the fire pit unattended while it is in use.

  • Make sure the fire pit is extinguished completely before leaving it unattended.

  • Make sure the fire pit is at least 5 meters away from any structure

  • Do not use the fire pit indoors.

  • Make sure all children and pets are at least 1.5 meters away from the fire pit while it is in use unless supervised by a parent - even after the fire has gone out as hot ashes and heat retention in the steel can cause serious bodily harm.

  • Make sure to follow local regulations regarding fire pits and the burning of wood.

  • Make sure the fire pit is regularly cleaned and inspected for damage as well as the surface it is placed on.

How To Light Your Smokeless Fire Pit:

  1. Use a good amount of kindling as shown below and stack in a "hash" pattern
  2. Using some type of fire starter (cotton balls covered in petroleum jelly is a great trick!), preferably natural starter blocks - place one on top of the wood and light, then tip down through the centre of all the kindling so it burns from the bottom up.

  3. Once the flames are coming out the top of the fire pit consistently - you can load more timber on in the same "hash" pattern as shown below up till just below the top holes on the inside of the fire pit. (Please note - this stage will not be smokeless operation yet as there is not enough heat in the fire pit):
  4. Leave this to burn until the smoke disappears (assuming proper dry timber is being used) and you'll enjoy a good long consistently hot burn!

  5. If you want to keep it running, just add more large pieces of dry firewood to the fire as you desire, ensure you never overload or compact the already burning material too much to suffocate the flame. Please also note, as you do this there will be some smoke each time due to the timber rapidly heating up which lets of gasses faster at the same time as cooling the fire slightly. Once the timber has got proper ignition you'll return to smokeless operation!
