Just picked up this little number. Not sure when I'll use it given that it's currently 9 and pouring in Brum, but oh well.

Can anyone recommend a good fuel to use for firepits? Is it best to simply use some tree logs, or should I go for that "chimnea fuel" that I see at all the petrol stations? If logs, what type would be best?

I use the Weber firepit which looks like it has a slightly larger area. I tend to start it off with a chimney of briquettes and then top it up with a little bit of house coal. I then use logs to keep it going, currently using Willow and Conifer, but will use whatever I can get my hands on as long as it doesn't burn with a lot of smoke. Last year started making paper bricks/logs with a press, but haven't had the time or inclination to try them out yet.
