Remember that fire needs three things to burn at maximum efficiency: Fuel (in this case, wood), oxygen
and heat. These are the perfect combo for a great fire.

Usually, you need to dig a nice, deep fire pit and encircle it with rocks. However, this actually reduces
oxygen to the fire. It takes some time for it to get deeper and sustain the fire. The pit design you need is
one that will help increase the oxygen level of the fire.

First off, you need a big solid rock, one that is much bigger than the rest of your rocks. Surround the pit
with the smaller rocks with the big rock in the center. Make sure to leave a gap in the circle, just across
the big rock. The gap ensures you create a healthy supply of oxygen for the fire. Note that smoke is
attracted to objects. This is the reason for the big rock. The smoke goes in the direction of the big rock
and the rest escapes upward, containing it in one area.
