  • Where can I use my Flatout Fire Pit?
    Flatout Fire Pits must always be used outdoors in an open space, away from over hanging trees, awnings or patios and bushes. Many Caravan & Camping grounds prefer raised fire pits as they contain the ash and cause less damage to grassed areas. It is your responsibility to check local council laws, caravan park/camp ground rules or rangers stations etc when planning on using your Flatout Fire Pit. Monitor all fire bans/restrictions and abide by all fire rules and regulations at all times. Never leave your fire pit unattended and always make sure children are supervised and kept a safe distance away from the fire pit at all times. Never allow Children to play, light or refuel your Fire Pit.
  • How do I take care of my Flatout Fire Pit?
    STORAGE Flatout Fire Pits are best stored in a dry, sheltered position such as a shed or garage. Leaving them set up in a back yard or at a camp site for prolonged periods of time will affect the life of the product. SEASONING YOUR HOTPLATE & GRILL Apply cooking oil to the entire surface & bring up to cooking temperature (take care to never overheat the surface) carefully wipe the plate with paper towel or a clean cloth & repeat until clean. Repeat this process every time you cook. When you are finished cooking, ensure the plate is clean & oil is re-applied before storing. MAINTENANCE As part of the maintenance process, you may choose to coat your entire Mild Steel fire pit in cooking oil after every use to cover the mild steel and keep it in good condition. We recommend using a cooking oil with a high smoke point.
  • Do I need an ash or coal tray for my Flatout Fire Pit?
    Our unique design means that all coals and ashes are caught in either the fire box of the PITQ300 or PITQ450, or for the PITQ600, most ashes and coals will remain in the fire box & some will fall onto the heat deflector and therefore an additional ash tray is not required for any of our models. We have designed them this way to ensure that you can create a nice coal base for cooking and heat is retained in the fire box (or veggie tray for the PITQ600) where it is needed, instead of falling onto a tray on the ground. Clean up is easy! Once your fire pit has cooled down, you can remove 1 side panel of any model fire pit, you can easily scrape cold coals and ashes into an approved container for disposal.

All custom designs are priced between $75.00 - $250.00 as our engineer will asses the complexity or the design and will quote on an individual basis. Please note that we do not do football team logos, or any logos with a copyright.
  • How do I adjust the height of my rotisserie?
    The secret to cooking great rotisserie BBQ is control over your heat source by having the ability to move it away or closer to your food. All Flatout Fire Pit models have been designed to maximise your heat control using the wide base in the fire box, not by adjusting the height of your rotisserie or fire base. Instead of raising or lowering your rotisserie, you have the space to move your heat source away, or closer to your food as needed. This allows quick changes that you can do easily and without taking the entire rotisserie off the fire pit or adjusting the base of your fire in any way. When cooking a roast, you want to use indirect heat to avoid cooking the outside faster than the inside. Therefore having the ability to move the heat away from directly underneath your food is essential to rotisserie cooking.
  • What are the kettle / camp oven racks for?
    The kettle racks provide a surface for you to place your camp kettle over the fire without blocking the airflow or taking up half of your hot plate space. They have 2 height settings on the PITQ600 & which one you use will depend on how much fire you have in the box. These racks can also be used for camp ovens to limit burning of the base of your food & control the temperature with ease by adding or removing coals without removing the camp oven.
  • Where is the Vegetable Oven?
    The vegetable oven is located under the fire box and above the ground heat deflector plate on our PITQ600 Fire Pits Only. Ash and coals will fall through the holes in the fire box, so anything placed in the vegetable oven needs to be covered with Aluminium Foil.
