A firepit dining table is the perfect garden furniture essential for entertaining guests in cosy style. It provides the ideal set up for catching up with loved ones in comfort around the spectacular glow of a roaring fire. We know a firepit dining table is an essential for outdoor entertaining, but the big question is, can it be used as a BBQ?
This is an important question that we’re asked frequently at IOL, and we’re delighted to say that with the Bramblecrest Firepit Dining Set models, you absolutely can use them as a BBQ. In fact, this is one of their main benefits. Not quite convinced? Let’s take a closer look at how to use a firepit dining table to grill up some delicious food.
How Do You Use A Firepit Dining Table As A BBQ?
At the centre of all our firepit dining table sets is an integrated firepit that’s contained within a tasteful tempered glass shield to provide extra safety and to prevent the flames from going out due to wind. The firepit is fuelled by a gas tank that’s located discreetly within the table’s base, whilst still being easily accessible to operate.
Using the heat from the Bramblecrest firepit dining table to BBQ food works in a similar way to grilling food over any open fire. You’ll need to get the fire lit using the easy-to-operate gas tank, before adding a griddle pan on top of the flames to cook your food on. Once set up, you simply grill your food as you would on the BBQ and cook up some tasty treats!
The genius of these firepit dining tables is that your cooking and dining space are combined, creating the perfect set up for hosting a BBQ. Guests can interact with the cooking, with plenty of table space and seating for them to lounge and enjoy the food as soon as it comes off the grill.
What Equipment Do I Need To Cook With My Firepit Dining Table?
In order to use your firepit dining table set as a BBQ you’ll need a firepit griddle that suits the specific model of your dining set. At IOL, we provide two different types of firepit griddle to be used with our Bramblecrest Firepit Dining Table Sets. These are:
