No summer BBQ is complete without a fire pit. Settle everyone around the fire for some roasting marshmallow fun or turn your Cambridge Fire Pits into a versatile, easy to use BBQ!

Cambridge Fire Pits are available in a variety of styles with different components. The Pre-Packaged Ledgestone Round Barbeque & Fire Pit Kit allows you to cook food with its metal ring dual opposing cooking grates. These grates are designed to cantilever over the fire for cooking.

If you are not into wood burning fire pits, maybe gas burning fire pits catch your eye? Lit by natural gas, Cambridge's Gas fire pits produce flames in dazzling flower-like patterns. The one of a kind Fully-Assembeled Gas Fire Table has specially designed, oval-shaped, linear colorful beads. These glass fire beads are available in three different colors-diamond, aqua, and emerald-and can be mixed to create unique designs. They reflect light and sparkle on the outside when the flame is lit. It even creates a fanciful dancing liquid-like display!

You also may be worried about bothersome bugs. Sage is a great way to prevent bugs, especially mosquitoes. All you need to do is add sage to your fire pit to kick the bugs out of your backyard party! You can even do this with a grill if you don't have a fire pit. Just add the sage to the grill after you have cooked your food.

Now you can get ready for a summer full of exciting backyard parties by choosing an outdoor kitchen design worthy of your summer BBQ's! Grill some delicious food to impress your guests and be fully prepared with one of Cambridge's Outdoor Kitchens, Fire Pits, or the Coyote Asado Cooker. Your guests will not only admire your appetizing dishes but will be captivated by your new stylish backyard amenities. Happy grilling!
