Many are to eager to have a fire pit and than build one that is too small to use for lighting proposes or for heat generation during cool nights, and unfortunately loss a lot of the potential of their fire pit. There are many reasons to why fire pits are becoming so popular and there have been many answers to this phenomena, but the real fact is the most of us just enjoy fire and like to have it around for cooking and heat, as well as for providing more character and charm to our backyards.
Fire Pit Styles and sizes: Table Top Fire Pits: The fire pit resides in the center and a table encircles the firepit. This style encourages everyone to gather around the fire, possibly cook dinner (based on the model) and enjoy the ambiance. The tables often have a tiled mosaic pattern, and the Fire Pit can be fueled by gas, gel or wood. Pagoda Style Fire Pits are generally taller and more elaborately designed. Many double as a grill. Chimenea’s are an increasingly popular portable outdoor fireplace. They were traditionally constructed from terra-cotta but can now be found in assorted finishes including steel, iron and copper.

Whether fire is our friend or foe depends a lot on the way we treat it and our having a basic knowledge of its causes. This understanding will help us see the practicality and benefits of having a Fire Pit. What Is Fire? Although men had been using fire for thousands of years, its true nature was not known until experiments by Antoine Lavoisier and others in the 1700’s showed that fire marks a chemical reaction involving oxygen. I am sure that if they had put outdoor fire pits to good use, they could have figured this out way earlier! Anyway, they proved that oxygen is actually added during the burning process, although others before that had thought that fire resulted from the release of an imaginary substance called phlogiston. Fire is defined as the heat and light that come from burning substances - essential of course for every fire pit.
Find a fire pit with a chimney Use a chimney: A well designed chimney over the fire pit is a good way to make camp cooking. The chimney will provide safety as well as comfort to those sitting around it. The chimney is also good for sufficient amount of airflow. At times, some fire pits pose danger of overlapping and harming others. Buying a fire pit with a chimney could earn you some points. Be aware of the flammables: Some disasters from fire pits occur with burning materials around it. A fire should never be taken lightly- not even during an enjoying a great conversation. Keep an eye (if possible keep both eyes) on the fire pit outdoor. A strong blow of wind or a diverted wind flow or perhaps a pet playing nearby or a bumping-rolling toy can get the fire spread or grow bigger before you know it.
