Wood fire bowls are usually cheaper than the gas firebowls. They are also lighter so they can easily be moved around wherever they are needed. Their main advantage is the natural appearance and sound of the fire they produce. The wood burning fire pits really bring that campfire experience to life. But, on the other hand, they have certain maintenance disadvantages. When used, the wood fire bowls produce black soot that must be cleaned so that you can use them again.
