Fire pits are cool. To make one, dig a hole, surround it with rocks, and fill it with sticks. Then add leaves. Light a match and ignite the leaves. In a minute, you will have a fire pit. Now it’s time to have fun. Here’s 4 things you can do around a fire pit.
1. Tell Ghost Stories
As you sit around the fire pit, tell some ghost stories. Use your imagination to entertain and frighten your friends. Some of the easiest stories to tell involve the neighborhood recluse or the local sheriff. You can also tell a story about aliens or the chupakabra. If you have a wooded area nearby, it’s the perfect setting for the story.
2. Roast a Goat Leg
If you don’t know how to roast a goat leg, here’s some advice. The first step involves prepping the meat. Soak the meat in a marinade. Then, set up a rotisserie on the fire pit. Drive two metal spires into the ground at each end of the pit. The spires should have a u-shaped end. Drive another metal spire through the goat leg and place it across the pit, suspended in the air and supported at both ends by the two vertical spires. Let the flames roast it. Cook until the goat meat is tender. Click here for a list revealing the benefits of tenderizing goat meat. Turn the horizontal spire occasionally to properly roast a goat leg. This is how you should roast a goat leg.
3. Roast Marshmallows
Now that you know how to roast a goat leg, roast marshmallows. Stab marshmallows with sticks and roast them over the fire. Once they are charred, eat them.
4. Play with the Fire
You can play with the fire after eating the roasted leg and marshmallows. Dowse it with lighter fluid or toss firecrackers in the pit. It will be the perfect end to the evening.
