Increasingly popular as outdoor pastimes become more frequent, fire pits are versatile and can add some charm to your garden. Whether you're roasting marshmallows or gathering with friends on a chilly evening, adding a fire pit can turn a boring backyard into the perfect outdoor spot. If you don't want to fix fixtures in your backyard, or if you like the flexibility of enjoying an open fire even when you're traveling, a portable outdoor fire pit can come in handy as a handy portable option. But choosing the right type, size and material before investing is crucial. There are some factors that you should consider when making your purchase. Let's take a look!
Depending on how large an area you intend to use it in and how much storage space you are willing to provide for it when not in use, you should first consider the size of the portable fire pit. It comes in a variety of sizes, paying attention to the overall diameter of the fire pit as well as the height and how much can be packed away when it is put away. Size affects the heat output of the fire pit and its ability to be used for cooking Smaller, lighter fire pits are great for storage and portability, but don't always provide the same amount of warmth, durability and cooking surface area. If you are camping out of your van or travel trailer but have limited storage space for transporting your fire pit, you will need to downsize. However, if you have a large truck, SUV or spacious car, you may want to consider a larger fire pit. Meanwhile, when choosing a fire pit for your garden or patio, make sure you leave some distance around the fire pit to avoid overheating nearby furniture or greenery.
Always consider the weight of a portable bbq fire pit if you like to camp out. Heavy fire pits are a poor choice in two ways: they are harder to transport and slower to cool. If you purchase lighter weights, you can usually pack them up about 20-30 minutes after the fire goes out. The heavier the fire pit, the longer it stays hot and the longer you will have to wait to pack up and go home. Also, in terms of weight, make sure the fire pit is durable enough to withstand repeated fires and transportation, but light enough to get in and out of storage when you want to use it.
Portable outdoor bbq fire pits are typically common with two fuel types: charcoal and propane. Propane fire pits are easier to light, burn cleaner, and are safer to run, but they also require a gas cylinder, so they take up more space and add weight to your vehicle. Charcoal fire pits are great if you want to grill food over a fire pit. Charcoal will give your food a similar texture and flavor, and charcoal will produce a controlled, even heat with a smaller flame. However, they do produce smoke as they burn, and wood pellets produce less smoke; consider using wood pellets or even using a smokeless design to further reduce smoke.
If you want a fire pit to be easy to operate and safer, you can consider a fire pit with accessories. The main accessories to look for are grille, protective net cover and a fire poker with a wooden handle. Portable charcoal fire pit is equipped with additional barbecue grill and chrome-plated cooking grill. Safe and convenient to use, with a metal poker stick, you can sort logs and coal without burning your hands. At the same time, it is equipped with a mesh safety cover and an ash collection tray to prevent the burning embers from being blown away. Protecting the spark screen outdoors allows you to sit near the fire without worrying about any stray sparks or ashes flying out.
These are some of the factors that need to be considered regarding how to choose a portable fire pit, and hopefully these suggestions will help you rest easy.
