11 of the Best Backyard Fire Pits
Well flamin' pits and great bowls of fire! Here are 11 of the best backyard fire pits, here to ignite your date nights, goo up your s'mores nights, and make your warm summer nights just a little warmer.
Decorative "Brazier" Fire Pillar
This rustic brazier-style fire pit is just waiting to become the pillar of your backyard. The metal column is painted a woody brown, nodding further to nature with tree cutout designs on two sides. The fiery bowl on top is removable, and can be used separately as well as on its pillar perch.
Propane Fire Pit Table with Side Table Tank Storage
Say hello to my little 50,000 BTU friend. And his little propane tank storage friend. Trust me, they're both a gas, and will help you light it up on your back patio all summer long, and into the fall.
Both rectangular pieces included in the propane fire table set are made of sturdy steel and cast wood, with a natural wood finish. The multifunctional side table is usable as a drink, food, and decor holder in addition to propane tank storage in a cabinet underneath.
The fire pit table provides warmth, ambience, and, when you're in the mood, roasted wienies and marshmallows.
TIKI 25" Stainless Steel Low Smoke Fire Pit
Where there's no smoke, there's TIKI fire. The brand builds their 25" stainless steel fire pit with a patent-pending internal airflow system designed to stoke stellar flames without the high levels of smoke and ash that normally accompany them.
TIKI's low smoke fire pit burns either with traditional firewood, or a TIKI Wood Pack , the latter of which enables an instant light fire for those of you all TIKI-tock about getting your fire pit roaring.
Trackside Sound Reactive Fire Pit
This new track is on fire! It's not from Beyonce or Travis Scott either. Or Bruce Springsteen. Dad. It isn't even the song kind of track - though it can definitely rock out with the best of them. Dad. This track comes straight from the Rail Yard, with a little Music City mixed in, to make it the Trackside Fire Pit, a sound-reactive pyro's dream built in collaboration between Rail Yard Studios and Music City Fire Company.
Flame Genie Wood Pellet Fire Pit
The Flame Genie can't grant your every wish, but if your wish is to have a wood pellet-burning fire pit on your back deck or patio this summer, then your wish is its command.
The Flame Genie uses pellet fuel to burn smoke- and spark-free, adding warmth and ambience to your backyard or campsite. Fire pits come in 2 sizes, 13.5" x 13.5" x 12.5" and 19" x 19" x 16.25", and your choice of stainless steel or black powder coated galvanized steel finishes.
Wood Burning Chiminea Outdoor Fire Pit
Having a chiminea in the backyard sounds so fancy. Like buying a cravat at Barney's or Tarjay. Even the maker's name, Bali Outdoors indicates a certain level of fanciness. Lucky for the less fancy of us out there, this particular chiminea is not so fancy in price.
The wood-burning unit sports a 360-degree mesh fire cage at its center so everyone gets a view, and a piece, of the flames. The chiminea has a steel body and cast iron legs.
Eye of Sauron Fire Pit
I bet this fire pit knows some good ghost stories. What I didn't bet was that Sauron moved his Dark Tower to Canada, where he and his Evil Eye now mostly roast marshmallows and try to taunt Canadians into saying something not nice to them. Ahhh, the higher they rise, the harder they fall.
If you want to help the Dark Lord or Mordor get his mojo back, you can buy the fire pit from Imagine Metal Art and have it shipped to the US, where there's plenty of chaos and no good for the Red Eye to get up to.
Phoenix Rising Fire Pit Sphere
Jason and Melissa Crisp smith some wicked fire pits. You've seen their stunning (yet slightly twisted) Forest Fire Pit burning through these parts before. And here we have an equally cool, and much less disturbing example of her work with Phoenix Rising.
While The Fire Pit Gallery can hook your Phoenix up with a gas conversion kit, it is a wood burner in its truest form and, come on, if you're going to get a Phoenix Rising Fire Pit, you damn well better complete the proverb and cap off the effect by allowing him to rise up out of the ashes.
Smokestack Outdoor Fire Pit
Funny, the guy shown using the Smokestack outdoor fire pit is exactly the type of guy I'd imagine to be entirely incapable of using a Smokestack outdoor fire pit. Half-kneeling in a suit with a baby axe? I guess that means this yard heater is either hipster friendly or hipster approved. I vote the latter.
Then again, the guy in the photo could also be the Smokestack's Dutch designer, Frederik Roije, in which case he would be a foreigner and thereby exempt from all American stereotypes.
Except, of course, American stereotypes about foreigners.
Newcastle Propane Firebowl Column
There's nothing that special looking about the Newcastle Propane Firebowl Column. In fact, I bet it would match perfectly with the siding on a lot of the houses that might install it on their back deck or patio. And maybe that's the point. Fire that blends in like an end table or nightstand rather than demanding to be the center of attention like a sofa or 8K TV.
The Newcastle Column and its 40,000 BTUs of heat will still cook your s'mores and provide some date night romance, but as a side rather than a centerpiece.
Quaruba Outdoor Wood Stove
Quaruba, Jamaica / oooh I wanna make ya / a stylish and modern / wood stove for the garden.... In the Quaruba outdoor wood-burning stove Dutch designers rb73 have created a cubical, modular piece to heat up your nights - and maybe your dates - on the patio or in the garden.
The Quaruba comes in Large, XL, and XXL sizes, assembled as you wish with a combination of 1 glass-fronted door and 4 glass panels. One version also has 4 wheels for mobility, plus a platform for firewood storage.
