At Snow Peak, we’re true believers in the restorative nature of Takibi Time. We feel that the most meaningful connections can be discovered through the simple act of gathering together around a good fire, even if you’ve only ventured out to your backyard or patio.
Here, we show you just how easy it is to create your own Takibi scene and restore a little humanity in the process with our iconic Takibi Fire & Grill.
Before you get started, watch our video for the step-by-step process of setting up your Takibi Fire and Grill.
Step 1: Crumple several sheets of recycled newspaper into a ball and set at the bottom of your fireplace.
Step 2: Gather up kindling. It will help ignite the fuel logs later in the process.
Step 3: Arrange your kindling three or four layers high in alternating sets of three directly on top of the newspaper.
Step 4: Carefully ignite the newspaper and add a few more layers of kindling to the fire.
Step 5: Stack two new layers of wood logs, two by two, and allow them to burn in a controlled manner.
Step 6: Continue building on the fire by adding in additional wood logs as needed.
Step 7: Leave enough space for airflow and allow the wood logs to slowly burn.
Step 8: Monitor, and safely stoke fire, adding some additional wood logs as desired.
Step 9: Enjoy your Takibi time! Bonus points if you invite your friends to join you.
Step 10: Allow the fire to completely burn before attempting to extinguish. When you’re finished, completely drown out the fire with water.
Step 11: Make certain that all wood logs and embers have been extinguished. Never leave a smoldering fire unattended.
