Just because the summer is winding down, doesn't mean you have to run for cover indoors. There's still plenty of time to relax in the backyard with some BBQ and cold brews. In fact, even when the nights turn chilly, the perfect way to squeeze a little bit more out of the season is to strike up a fire in your backyard fire pit and toast some s'mores.

What's that...? You don't have a fire pit? No problem...these guys made theirs for under $150 and with minimal materials.
