Propane vs Wood vs Natural Gas  

Wood fires are great. We love 'em. We'd be happy to make you a wood-burning fire pit. But open wood fires are often frowned upon here in Oregon. They require 25ft of clearance from any structure. They smoke. They require dry wood and kindeling. Fire bans are common. And sparks can be dangerous


Propane-powered fire pits require less clearance. They throw no sparks. They are transportable so you can take them to your next picnic or event. They can be brought in (or out!) for the winter. And you can light up for a quick 15 minute fire without all the hassle!


If you feel comfortable changing propane tanks on your backyard grill, you can operate these fire pits with confidence.


Natural Gas pits are much like propane, but are much cheaper to operate. But keep in mind that installation of hard lines can be costly. If you want a permanent art piece, this is a great option.
