Most outdoor fireplaces don’t provide for functional outdoor cooking. With a Flare Outdoor Fireplace you can cook pretty much anything you can imagine.

One thing to watch out for, which I’ve done a number of times, is drag embers or larger pieces of burning wood under the hot plate when cooking on my Flare Fire, and accidentally have the embers touching the plate. When this happens the plate can over heat and bend or even crack. 

I’ve bent a few plates, which is no drama, except that the next time you go to use it, any oil or butter you place on the plate goes to all the wrong places, making it harder to cook effectively.

To avoid this, simply make sure there is a gap between your embers or any larger pieces of wood and your hot plate.
