Fire pits are something that can be used and enjoyed all the year, it is true that in the winter the use of fire pits and fireplaces has much more sense due to the fact that these tools can be used to heat up rooms and save some costs on electric or gas heating, an efficient fireplace can heat a large room, without the need to use any other energy source for heating. Fire pits can be permanent or portable. They serve as containers for barbecues, bonfires, as well as outdoor heat. They also come in different sizes, sources and accessories. Some fire pits use wood while others use natural gas. Several fire pits are also designed to roast marshmallows while others can carry out a more complicated function such as container of a bonfire during a camping adventure. In selecting a fire pit, it is best to weigh the pros and cons. If you wanted a portable fire pit, choose a lightweight fire pit that can be assembled easily. If you want a fire pit for your patio, better use a dish or bowl design. Be sure that fire pit special products like screen dome or cover are part of the package. Also consider the size of the equipment especially when you intend to use logs and coals. When you are purchasing a fire pit with grill, make sure that there is an attached tool to raise the grill.
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.

Simple and inexpensive wood burning fire pits can be built in the ground using the now classic method found in campsites and parks today. It’s as easy as 123.1-Dig a hole in the ground. 2-Add gravel and sand for drainage and and to provide a level base. 3-Line it with a metal ring to help contain the flames and focus the heat. Some local authorities only allow fire pit’s that are raised up off the ground, so please check first!! Root fires are a concern so don’t forgo the gravel and sand layer. Some local authorities insist on a base of 25cm if the fire pit is not sitting directly upon a rock outcrop! If you have decided to burn gas then you can either run gas lines to the fire pit or incorporate a propane tank into the design, preferably concealed. We strongly suggest using a certified technician when connecting natural gas or propane to any fire feature. Gas fire pit kits come in all shapes and sizes. You can buy burner kit to incorporate into your design or an entire structure that comes ready for you to apply your finish of choice.
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.
