It’s a common assumption that all fire pits are permanent and cannot be easily moved. While there are plenty fire pits that fall under this category, there are also lighter, more portable models available. If you’re struggling to choose between a portable or permanent fire pit, here are some things to consider.
If you enjoy tailgating as much as the next guy, you’ll want to choose a portable fire pit. You can easily load it on your truck (or even inside a car) to create the ultimate fan-made outdoor experience in the venue’s parking lot. A portable fire pit will allow you to tailgate in style, providing warmth, ambiance, and even functional benefits such as the ability to grill burgers and hot dogs. Be warned, though, the sight of glowing, radiant fire pit will likely attract other fans, so bring extra food!
Ask any serious outdoorsman and he’ll probably agree: no camping trip is complete without a fire. Portable fire pits can be used for camping — something that’s not available with permanent fire pits. Their small, compact design allows campers to easily transport them. Upon reaching your campsite, you can use the fire pit to cook food, create warmth, and even ward off pesky insects.
Furthermore, using a fire pit instead of building a traditional campfire will reduce the risk of a forest fire. The fire will be contained within the pit, preventing stray embers from setting ablaze nearby brush. When you are finished camping, pour some water over the ashes, dump them into a small dirt-filled hole, and you are good to go!
Even if you have no immediate plans to relocate, you probably will at some point in time. The U.S. Census Bureau estimates that the average American will move more than eleven and a half times during their life. When it’s time to move, you’ll probably want to take all of your belongings, including your fire pit. Due to their awkward shape and heavy weight, however, most stone fire pits cannot be easily moved. But if you choose a portable fire pit, such as those offered here at S&S Fire Pits, you can easily take it with you to your new home.
These are just a few of the many distinguishable differences between portable and permanent fire pits.
