The Weber Fireplace comes with a built in lid holder to let you use the lid as a windshield. This will make lighting the Fireplace easier and allow you to stop the smoke blowing the wrong way. The lid also makes it simple to extinguish the fire at the end of the evening. Simply place the lid over the Fireplace to extinguish it. While not designed for barbecuing in the traditional sense, a Weber Fireplace is perfect for roasting marshmallows on and is a great source of heat to cosy up to on a chilly evening.
