Outdoor fire pits, who doesn’t love ‘em! They can make a boring landscape look like prestige and have the added benefit of bringing warmth to all those who sit around them. Feel free to browse the net and you will find thousands of different designs and styles available. Some of cheap, some are expensive, some are good value, some are heavily overpriced. How are you meant to know which one is right for you? That is where I come in. In this edition of ‘Found by James’ I outline my favorite outdoor fire pit. Before we get started, don’t forget to check out some of my other articles such as my favorite lantern.
Before I get into too much detail I should state a disclaimer. Fire pits can be very dangerous for children and pets. Please ensure that if you are going to purchase one you put it in a safe place, away from harm. Ok, let’s get down to business.
Fire pits have come a long way in the past few years, gone are the years where the only option was your friend’s friend who happened to be a bricklayer and would come around and built you a brick pit you could stick some twigs and old wood in of a Saturday night. Now you can purchase an aesthetically pleasing, or rather, visual extravaganza that will warm even the coldest of winter evenings.
There are a few things I look for in a good quality fire pit:
So which fire pit did I choose….it’s the Globe fire pit. It oozes coolness, it has a solid built, there is nothing ‘cheap’ of the materials used for its construction and it would work well with most landscape designs.
So there you have it, stop searching and head out and grab one of the, if not the best, fire pit available. And remember, when your friends are sitting around on a cold winter’s night, as warm as a microwaved meat pie, enjoy the spectacle of a burning earth globe, let them know that is was ‘found by james’!
