Wood Burning Fire Pits
Relax to the Crackle and Warmth of Wood Burning Fire
Warm up your patio or backyard with a wood burning fire pit. These firepits tend to be the most popular as there is a much wider selection and they allow for a bit more mobility than natural gas or propane. If you like outdoor fires, bonfire pits make them safe and reliable for you and your guests to sit around and create wonderful memories.
Sure to please, these wonderful backyard fire pits are perfect for enjoying in solitude or for backyard entertaining. The DeckProtect pad also allows you to enjoy your wood burning fires on your deck!
The nostalgic smell of a wood fire is sufficient reason to consider a wood burning fire pit. Most models will include protective spark screens and many are designed with artistic bases that flickering flames and shadows dance through.
The beauty of cooking on a wood burning fire pit is the opportunity to flavor meats and fishes with piquant hardwoods. Choose apricot or alder wood for poultry or pork. Mesquite is always popular for quick-cooking steaks. Almond and pecan add a mellow nutty flavor to any meat. All fruit trees, including crab apple, imbue a palatable sweetness or discrete tartness. Even lilac is great for cooking meats, so don't throw out those yearly trimmings! (Woods should be allowed to dry thoroughly before cooking with them). Some models come with a cooking and/or wood grate, if not, check out these grates.
Consider taking your fire pit on your yearly fishing, hunting, or camping trip and forgo the pleasure of digging a temporary fire hole. Clean-up is simple and containment is never an issue. What could be better than placing your fire pit between two fishing chairs and cooking freshly caught trout while warding off the evening chill?
Great for tail-gating parties, too, rather than worry about a leaky propane tank, carry along your favorite hardwood. The spark screen protects neighboring tailgaters from embers, and you can show off your famous crab-apple smoked meat!
