The Plain Jane Garden Fire Pit with Swing Arm BBQ - various sizes from 60cm - 90cm diameter is from Firepits UK who have added a modern twist to an old classic with the addition of a BBQ rack to the plain Jane collection. Practical and functional, the BBQ swing arm swivels on axle and can be lifted off to allow you to enjoy the warmth of the fire pit late in to the evening after cooking.

The bowl has a simple rolled edge and is made from 3mm thick steel. The thick steel generates lots of radiant heat.

Ideal for parties and outdoor entertaining, creates a wonderful ambience. 

We design all our products so you can use and store them outside. The thick steel we use means they’ll withstand all weathers, the heat from the fire and will last for more than ten years. Any rust they develop is simply a natural part of the ageing process and is nothing to worry about. In fact, it’s part of what gives each fire pit its unique beauty.

Optional extras: We also make a snuffer lid or table top lid which is designed to cover the bowl to protect it from the British and Irish weather and prevent any ash from blowing out.

For cooking, we recommend lighting the firepit an hour before use using plenty of seasoned wood, then simply pushing the burning logs to one side to cook over the embers. When finished, load the bowl with more logs and enjoy the warmth.

Accessories available: Snuffer Lid or Table Top Cover Lid, Ash Rake, Blow Poker

The bowl has a capped hole for drainage. All fire pits are rubbed over with oil and will eventually oxidise and become a deep autumn colour. This forms an attractive and rustic patina and will have no impact on long term durability.


  • Always use well-seasoned kiln dried logs to reduce smoke.
  • It is best to light your fire at least ½ hour before you intend to use your fire pit, this will allow the smoke to have settled. For fires intended to cook on allow more time for the logs to turn to hot embers.
  • Fill your fire pit with logs to the outside edge and make it as tall as you can - large fires will settle down to be the perfect size, giving you a hot centre. Any additional logs will then burn well and not smoke.


Cooking on Firepit
  • After a couple of hours separate the burning logs from the hot embers using an ash rake.
  • Place your swing arm or half-moon BBQ rack over the hot embers, not the flames as they are too hot.
  • If you need more heat swing your BBQ rack over the flaming logs.
  • Do not let your fire go out. If your fire goes out, you will have to reset it resulting in a smoky fire pit.
  • If you are in a hurry to BBQ move the fire to one side with an ash rake and add charcoal.
  • After cooking mix the charcoal and wood together and add dry logs.


    Fire Pit Lid
    • Place your flat lid on the fire pit, even if it is still burning. This will snuff out the fire.
    • The flat lid will also keep any ash dry ready for the next time and will also stop the wind from blowing loose ash around.
    • All lids come 10cm larger than the fire pit to take into account the handles on the side.
    • Once cooled, the flat lid can also be used as a table.
    • The fire pit can be left outside all year round, the drainage hole will allow for any water that may get inside the bowl to drain out.
    • The fire pits arrive coated in oil. Please wear gloves while handling them for the first time.
    • The oil will burn off after the first fire.
    • The steel will then start to oxidize and the more fires you burn the darker the patina colour will become.
    • The steel will rust but will still last 8 plus years, and even more when a lid is being used.
    • The fire pit can be rubbed over with a wire brush and oiled or simply left outside to take its natural course. The Swing Arm BBQ Rack can be cleaned using a wire brush/wire wool; we would recommend oiling (once cooled) with cooking oil prior to storage/next use. Any exposed areas will oxidise more quickly, in particular the handles and optional lid.
    • Please do not leave a burning firepit unattended and ensure that children and pets are kept clear.

    • Hi, Can you remove the swing arm from the firepit when not using as a grill? And the half grill that's in some of the pictures does that come with it? Thanks, Marcus

      Thanks for your enquiry. The round bbq grill is very easy to detach from the fire pit . This comes with it but the half circular detachment does not. Please let me know if I can help with anything else. Thanks, Peter
