The Lowdown: Ring of Fire

By Dave Johnson

Ring of Fire

Most everyone loves a toasty fire. With the return of winter, let’s take a look at a few options for one of our favorite spots to warm up: the fire pit. It’s that perfect place to bask in a crackling fire when reading a book outside, gather around while at a party, or break out the hot dogs and s’mores for a backyard family campfire.

This Breeo fire pit has a traditional look with some modern amenities under the hood. It features X Airflow technology that allows air to circulate for a better flame, and even eliminates most of the smoke. It’s made of Stainless Steel and Cor-Ten steel which will develop a rich, rust-red patina over time, and it has a wide 24-inch opening for wood-burning. It features an outer sear plate for cooking and can accommodate an optional grill grate attachment if you want to turn this fire pit into a mean barbeque pit. MSRP: $299

If you want to commit to the fire pit idea as a permanent backyard fixture, go with this beauty. This block of 11 gauge Cor-Ten steel has a 30-inch opening and weighs in at over 200 pounds. The company says the pit is “portable”, but it’s not going anywhere that easily. It’s a formidable fire pit, and looks snazzy wherever you put it.

There’s something special about a fire pit. Maybe it’s the magic of the dancing flames and the needed warmth, but we think the real magic is the way a fire pit draws people together for meaningful chats or just some quality alone time. MSRP: $1,207

The Stahl Gas Fire Pit is one of the most visually striking fire pits, but it’s more than just a looker. This 30-inch long fire pit is made of raw steel that weighs over 100 pounds. And as the name denotes, it can use either wood logs or gas. If you live in an area with homeowner association restrictions, if you don’t want the smell of smoke on your clothes, or if you just want a warm fire pit at the press of a button, the Stahl Gas Fire Pit is certain to light up your night. MSRP: $950
