A portable, wood-burning metal fire pit. Photo used under Creative Commons from jc.westbrook.

A portable fire pit may be the right option for you if:

  • You are looking for an affordable option (prices start at $70)
  • You want to be able to move the fire pit about your yard
  • You don't have enough space for a built-in fire pit
  • You don't want to deal with construction and permits
  • You want a fire pit ASAP

Most portable fire pits are made of metal (steel, cooper, or cast iron). Steel fire pits are usually powder coated with a black finish, which makes soot and ash virtually unnoticeable. Copper fire pits have a unique look because of their orange color and sheen. When exposed to weather and heat copper will develop a green patina finish.

Fuel options for a portable fire pit include wood, gel, and propane.

Portable fire pit style options:

  • Fire pit
  • Fire bowl
