An outdoor fire pit is a great gift for outdoorsmen. Whether you’re looking for a portable gas fire pit to use for serious cooking on camping trips, or an elegant fireplace to enhance the atmosphere of an outdoor space, you’ll find an extensive selection of sturdy, durable options to choose from.
Fire pits are an ideal way to add convenience and visual appeal to the yard of your home or summer cottage, and even liven up a campsite. Keep the following points in mind when you're exploring the options:
- One of the first factors to consider is whether you want a gas-fueled model or a classic wood-burning pit. Wood-burning pits are a popular choice for people who enjoy the sounds and smells of an old-fashioned campfire, while gas-burning pits are easy to start and allow for greater control over the size of the fire.
- If you plan to use your fire pit for cooking meat or other foods, look for a pit that includes a cooking grate or can accommodate a grate above the fire surface.
- If you enjoy the look of traditional clay fire pits, you can choose a clay-style pit that combines modern functionality with classic aesthetics. Today's clay-style pits are constructed of steel and other rugged materials, often with appealing cutouts along the frame featuring animal shapes or other eye-catching designs.
- As with any grill or outdoor fireplace, safety is a key concern when using an outdoor fire pit. Be sure to follow all of the safety instructions, and remember to use your fire pit only in outdoor areas to avoid potential hazards from carbon monoxide or other harmful gases that may build up in enclosed spaces.
