What Size Outdoor Fire Pit Do I Need?
Large (36-Inch Diameter or Larger): These large fire pits are designed to be permanent structures and can hold the most amount of wood for the biggest fires.

Do I Need a Propane or Outdoor Wood-Burning Fire Pit?
There are several aspects you need to consider when choosing a fuel type. Propane fire pits are powered by clean burning liquid propane which means there is no smoky smell. These are also easier to light, provide a continuous flame, and require very little maintenance. On the other hand, wood fire pits create a relaxing ambiance with the sound of crackling logs and aroma of campfire smoke. Plus, firewood typically costs less than liquid propane, so wood-burning fireplaces cost less to use.
Does My Outdoor Wood Fire Pit Need a Cover?
Yes. A fire pit cover will offer protection from the natural elements and help prevent rusting. This well also help extend the life and longevity of your patio fire pit.
How Do I Start a Fire in a Fire Pit?
First, it's important that you have the proper equipment and you are following proper fire pit safety. You'll want to gather items such as tinder, kindling, and a fire starter.
Next, you'll want to create a pile in the bottom center of your wood-burning fire pit with your tinder, grab the kindling and place it at a 35-degree angle directly above the tinder, take the fire starter and light the tinder pile, and once it starts burning place your seasoned firewood in a similar structure as your kindling. Ensure that you are leaving small gaps between your firewood to maximize the air flow of your outdoor fire pit.
