Benefits of a Propane Fire Pit

Updated on February 11, 2011

For several years many families have gathered in the backyard around their bonfires for social gatherings, family get-togethers, and or just to roast marshmallows and have a good time. Years ago you didn’t have any rules for having a fire pit in your backyard, you just dug a hole put some bricks around it and that was it. In today’s society there are rules to follow if you are going to use a traditional in-ground fire pit, especially if you live in the city. You may need to call your neighborhood code to find out your city ordinance laws so that you don’t get into any trouble for burning with in the city limits. City ordinance has banned many communities from outdoor burning. Since the city is stricter on burning in your backyard, the sell of propane fire pits have been on the rise.

Propane fire pits essentially can rid you of the problems you may have had with a traditional fire pit. Just think about it; most propane fire pits come with a built in igniter just like on your propane grills. Since you are using a propane tank that is refillable, this would eliminate the need for newspapers and a lighter or those super long matches used for lighting a gas stove. You can control the flame unlike a traditional in-ground fire pit. A propane fire pit emits less smoke when being started. No more having to worry about your neighbors calling the fire dept for mistaking your backyard is on fire. Storing and buying wood to burn or cutting and waiting for it to dry are no longer a hassle when you have a propane fire pit. You don’t have to worry about hot embers or getting a bucket of water or sand to put the fire out. Just flip the switch and presto, the fire is out.


Not only does a propane fire pit make a great addition to your backyard, it adds style and personality as well. Propane fire pits have adjustable flame so if you turn the flame low enough, you can cook on your propane fire pit too. You may have to buy a grate for some propane fire pits, but this is still a great feature. Another feature would be its portability; depending on the shape and size you can store these just about anywhere. Propane fire pits are safer than a traditional in-ground fire pit and you don’t have to worry about the city code because the fire is self-contained. There is such a vast variety of style and price with propane fire pits that just about anyone could probably pick up one for a pretty decent price. Once you get one, you will wonder why you didn’t do it sooner.

      Totally awesome! I am so iiprnsed to get motivated and chunk out our old cracked patio. Your backyard really turned out great, and is a perfect oasis for you and SW. BTW, we ended up booking our snorkel adventure with SeaQuest for this upcoming Monday, per your recommendation. We decided to go for the longer trip 5 hours to 3 spots. We can't wait to finally get to Kona on Friday to start our adventure. Thanks for posting the finished' photo.
