Wood vs. Gas burning Convenience - The advantage of gas is that you can have instant flames with no effort. There is no preparation required and best of all, nothing to clean up afterwards. Burning gas does not produce smoke so it is ideal for locations where this may be an issue. Unless you have gas lines to your fire pit you will have to change the gas tanks when empty but if you are burning wood then you will require a stockpile of logs. You will also have to build a fire before lighting it, keep it stoked, extinguish it and then finally clear out the ashes. More work perhaps, but for some people, the smell of burning wood, the sounds of a crackling fire and all the memories these evoke more than make up for it. Safety - Gas burning fire pits do not produce sparks or flying embers and have a flame which you can control. When you switch off a gas fire pit at the end of the evening you know the fire is completely extinguished. Wood burning fires require a bit more care and attention before retiring to bed with peace of mind. Many gas burning models come with glass or Pyrex shields. This safety feature not only helps protects those gathering around from the flames by creating a barrier it also reduces the effect the wind has on the flames. As for wood burning fire pits, use a safety screen to reduce sparks and embers and only use dry seasoned wood.
The fire pits popularity is on the rise, many people seem to prefer to have a fire pit at their back yard then invest in bigger and more complicated fire holding elements, the choice is clear since most fire pits are very easy to maintain and take care of, and they do not cost a lot of money, some even produce their own fire pits, letting their imaginations run wild, and their creative side flourish. The summer had encouraged many home owners to seek a fire pit that will serve their needs, some like to use a fire pit as a garden feature and as a source of light in the evenings and night, while they spend time in the backyard, and some use the fire pit for cooking and smoking meat, which does not prevent its use as an element of light as well.
