I have excess smoke coming from my wood burning outdoor firepit. What causes this and how can I control it?

Answer: Your wood burning outdoor firepit may be producing excess amounts of smoke for any of the following reasons:

1. If your outdoor firepit is new and you are burning a fire in it for the first time it may produce smoke. This is because new outdoor firepits need to have an initial burn of about 30 minutes to allow any excess materials from the manufacturing process to burn off.

2. The specie of wood you use in your outdoor wood burning firepit can also determine the amount of smoke the fire produces. This is why we suggest using only dry, well seasoned hardwoods in your outdoor firepit.

3. The amount of wind around the firepit can also determine how much smoke the wood burning fire produces. The more wind there is generally means that the fire will produce larger amounts of smoke.
