Default Who has a fire pit?

I think I want to buy a fire pit for my backyard. I have a brick paver type patio and some 6' radius of open real estate for a pit. Other option would have to place the pit on the lawn in the yard.

I am not sure what style I like the best. I really want it to burn some twigs and dead branches that fall off my tree's, and bonus is its fun to have a fire at night with friends over drinking and bbqing.






Those with fire pits what style do you have? How often do you use? Would you recommend your pit to me?

If I had a yard like EdWort's I would build a sweet built into the ground setup, but this is not an option for the size of my yard and the fact I am in a suburban neighborhood.

In the beautiful county of stafford, VA you either need a "fully enclosed" fire pit (like the first one you showed... ... or a burn permit.

You could spend the cash on those outdoor fireplaces, or you could go ghetto like I did. I dug a hole and buried an old Weber grill so it is flush to the ground. Works great.

I have one like your first pictured one. It makes a mess of the table. My favorite one is an old stainless washing machine drum like this: http://i.ehow.com/images/GlobalPhoto...-main_Full.jpg

+1 on the old washing machine drum... A bit ghetto if not spruced up, but looks awesome at night and burns hot and clean...

They look like hell during the day, but at night with a fire, they heat great and keep the sparks in and look really cool with fire through all the holes.

This is my fire pit. I grew up with one of those above ground deals, they're ok.


See, we were trying to cook a hot dog.
