Best Portable Fire Pits

Portable fire pits allow us to enjoy the benefit of a campfire most anytime at anyplace. Whether you’re roasting marshmallows, cooking burgers, or just relaxing, bring the cozy ambiance to your tailgate party, campsite, or backyard and keep everyone warm during the cool spring nights ahead. Here are five of the best portable fire pits.

Solo Stove Bonfire 2.0

We’re all familiar with pesky wood smoke burning our eyes or seeping into our clothes and hair, but we are fortunate to live in an age of smokeless fire pits—what a time to be alive, right?— and Solo Stove makes some of the best. Ideally sized for three to five people, this double-wall fire pit is constructed of durable stainless steel. The Bonfire 2.0’s dual wall design is the key to delivering a nearly 100 percent smokeless fireside experience. (As the fire burns, air between the walls heats and expands upward, drawing fresh air in at the base.) Emptying the 2.0 is as simple as removing the fire base then lifting out and dumping the ash pan.

Fire Sense Roman 35-Inch Wood-Burning

First off, the Fire Sense Roman’s base is constructed from heavy duty steel and features an antique bronze finish. To ensure that it retains its color, it is coated with high temperature paint to protect the pit from damage. Measuring 35 inches in diameter means you can pile in plenty of firewood. The ball rests on slightly curved steel legs and features a Roman-inspired design which is sure to add a sophisticated look to your patio. At the bottom of the bowl is a durable wood grate that maximizes air flow for proper burning.

BioLite Smokeless Wood & Charcoal Burning

Another smokeless fire pit makes our list—the BioLite can go from spark-to-fire in less than 30 seconds and gives you a front-row seat to everything going on inside. You can burn charcoal or wood for a hibachi-style grilling experience! The airflow system features four fan speeds varying the flame’s intensity. Control the fan from the firepit’s power pack or from the BioLite Energy app for your phone. (Yes, this one is tech friendly.) Its 10,400mAh rechargeable battery power pack also has USB outputs for charging your devices.

Fireside Outdoor Pop-Up Fire Pit

If you’re looking for a portable fire pit on a budget, look no further! Fireside’s Pop-Up Fire Pit truly defines the word “portable”, assembling itself in just under 60 seconds without the use of any tools. Enjoy brighter, hotter fires with less smoke and the fire mesh holds up to 125lbs of weight, preventing ash from falling through. With 576 square inches of burn area, an elevated base, and 3.5-inch sides the Pop-Up Fire Pit exceeds BLM and Forest Service regulations for fire pans so you can pack this up for a weekend camping trip without worry.

Fire Sense 19-Inch Propane

For a relatively compact unit, the Fire Sense -19inch is a pretty powerful propane fire pit, offering up to 60,000 BTU heat capacity. Since the pit’s design feature dozens of holes on the side, heat dissipation is also relatively even. Easy to set up and store with its spring-hinged legs which fold inward for easy portability, you’ll be surprised at how often you end up whipping out this fire put because it’s just that convenient! If you have a 20-lb propane tank, the Fire Sense 19-Inch will be a great option for you
