What fuel source should my fire pit have?


There are a number of ways to keep your flames dancing, so it’s important to consider the characteristics of each one. Here are three of the most common fuel sources you can choose from:
• Gas: A popular choice, a propane model requires less maintenance and is easy to ignite and extinguish. Propane gas tends to be environmentally friendly and affordable, though you’ll need to replace the propane tank every so often.
• Wood: A wood-burning model lends a sense of camping in the great outdoors. Wood produces colorful flames and is a great fuel source for portable designs. It will require clean up after use, however, and can be difficult to ignite.
• Charcoal: If you purchase a wood-burning style, you can also try burning charcoal. This is perfect for a backyard barbecue and roasting marshmallows for s’mores. Charcoal will also require clean up after use.

What styles of fire pits are available?


Fire pits can take on many forms, which makes it easy to select a style that appeals to your personality and design tastes. While shopping, you may run into the following designs:
• Braziers: A smaller design, braziers date back to ancient times when they were used to provide heat, brighten outdoor areas and cook food. Try placing several small braziers around your outdoor area for a unique effect.
• Portable: Portable styles are typically made of metal or ceramic and usually feature legs and wheels. They make it easy to move your main source of heat and light wherever the party goes.
• Table: Your guests can enjoy their food and drinks along with the flames thanks to a smart design that allows you to place items on the tabletop surface surrounding the flames.
• Bowl: This design takes on the form of a large bowl supported by a stand. Yours may even be able to use a gel fuel, which tends to be alcohol-based and burns clean.
• Pit: The most common style, fire pits can be dug into the ground or be made from a ring of brick, stone or metal that sits on the ground. The ring around the pit prevents flames from spreading.

Is there anything else I should consider before buying my new fire bowl?


Since you’ll be fueling live flames outdoors, it’s important to check with your city to ensure your new outdoor fire pit is up to code. On a related note, you’ll always want to clear the surrounding area of any loose branches, brush or other flammable materials. Your city may also be able to provide more specific guidance on how large of an area must be cleared, but in general six feet is recommended. Last but not least, you should never leave your fire pit unattended. Remember the infamous words of Smokey Bear: “Only you can prevent wildfires!”
