Dishes You Can Cook with Your Keith Hamilton Fire Pit 

There’s no denying that a fire pit can add a little something extra to any outdoor entertainment area. In fact, fire pits have become a popular feature. But, homeowners (and renters) must take care to select a fire pit that is of a good quality and designed to last. Keith Hamilton’s fire pits are made from Bluestone Fires clay, which means that there is minimal thermal expansion, and you can rest assured that the product is highly durable.

That aside, there’s so much that you can do with a fire pit. If you think you’re just going to be roasting marshmallows, think again! The fact that the design of a fire pit is much like a fire bowl means that it can be used for various types of cooking. There are many dishes that you can cook with your Keith Hamilton fire pit, and we have made a brief list of the firm favourites below, for a little inspiration:

  • Braais – our fire pits include a grid accessory that is simply ideal for a braai. Use the fire pit to cook up your favourite steaks, sausages, chops, chicken pieces, and toasties, just as you would with a normal braai.
  • Potjies – potjies are a firm South African favourite. If you haven’t had one yet this year, what are you waiting for? With a Keith Hamilton fire pit, you can enjoy the perfect potjie while you spend a few hours relaxing and socialising with family and friends. Each fire pit comes with an optional potjie hook, which can hang the potjie pot at just the right distance from the fire.
  • Stir-fries – nothing quite beats an evening under the stars with family and friends, while smelling the delectable aroma of your favourite stir-fry. As part of our accessories range, our fire pits can be fitted with a wok holder, so that you can fry up a storm with your favourite ingredients.
  • Roosterkoek – making roosterkoek is a real treat and is something that can be enjoyed by the whole family. Get the kids involved in making the bread dough (make sure that it’s thick/stiff enough), and use the braai grid for baking them. It’s a simple and delicious braai-time treat!

When it comes to whipping up a storm of delectable treats, your fire pit will prove to be a worthy chef’s assistant. Once you have one, you will wonder how you ever got by without it!
