Does it need to provide heating? If your Fire Pit needs to provide heating then Gels many not be the best choice. Gels will often crackle and pop, but the heat they provide is not as significant as wood or gas. Do you need to be able to move the Fire Pit? Some Fire Pits are portable while others are a little more cumbersome. If you are looking for a portable Fire Pit to take camping or tailgating, a portable fire pit may be perfect. Additionally, if you like to be able to rearrange your outdoor space regularly a FirePit weighing a few hundred pounds may be a little cumbersome. Do you need to have a LP Gas, Natural Gas, Gel, or Wood FirePit? In regards to Gas, LP or Natural Gas are both options. Gel will snap, crackle and pop, but you need to purchase the Gels separately. Gels come in a canister, and we suggest carefully stirring each container (unless the box states otherwise) to ensure the mixture is evenly dispersed. NOTE: Some Gels may not fit other Gel units. With wood, well, wood is pretty easy as long as it is easy to procure. With any FirePit we suggest using a screen for safety. Would you like to be able to cook on your Fire Pit? If you would like to have your Fire Pit double as a grill , there are a number of available models for you to select from. Some look like a grill, and others are quite stylistic in shape.
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.
An important note, when looking for a new pit try and buy a fire pit which has reasonable size, and start it small: Some people try to make the fire grow out very large without have control over it. In the fire pit, the fire has to be started small at first. Then the fire maker or cooker has to make sure that the fire is within control. One basic thing while starting the fire pit is- never ever attempt to do it while the wind is blowing strong. Who knows when sparks will fly over the wooden house top? Keep extinguishers handy: No matter how large of small the fire in the pit is- some sort of fire extinguishing apparatus must be near hand. Anything can do- from a bucket of water to a bag full of sand. For those households already in possession of fire extinguishers, the precaution should be to keep it reachable. It has to be made sure that everyone near the fire or the household knows how to use the tool. Keeping a reasonable idea of safety is the first step to buying a fire pit which is safe and fun to use, do not forget to get the accessories for fire prevention along with your new pit, as well as keep the basic rules of fire safety when working on your firepit. It is also advisable to try and buy a fire pit which is constricted with green materials and one that can be used for a long time. When considering to Buy Fire Pit you should keep some important things in mind, safety, maintenance and costs are some of them, check out the fire pit buying advice at the Fire Pits Helper site.
Customize It Or, you can build your own and have it customized to your liking. In this guide, rather than calling it an article, I’m going to tell you how to build your own outdoor fire pit. There are 2 types of fire pits: Wood, or Charcoal burning And Gas Fire Pits The type that you will learn how to build is wood. I’m partial to the wood or charcoal pits cause they are just better in terms of the wood smells and it looks better. To me a gas fire outside is just fake. But, hey they serve the purpose so whatever your choice is you can’t go wrong.
