FAQ

 

- What makes our Heavy Duty Fire Pits different? First, these are made in America, by Americans with young families in our shop in East Texas. Second, we use heavy gauge steel that is welded. No assembly required on your part! All of our pits are a minimum of 3/16 (.188) thickness. See the difference

- Will my fire pit get hot?  Yes. When a fire is built in the fire pit it gets hot (that's sort of the point). In all seriousness, depending on the size of fire that you build, all metal and surfaces in contact with the fire pit can get extremely hot.  Always use extreme caution.

- Does the grill top swivel?  Yes. Our grill tops swivel 360', adjust up and down and are completely removable.

- Is the grill top adjustable? Yes. Each grill top has 3 adjustments. The grill top is held in place with a stainless steel pin (included with each pit) for easy adjustment. 

- Will your fire pit rust? Yes. However, they won't rust out. Our pits are made from carbon steel and when exposed to the elements they will rust. Buy our Stove Bright paint and keep your pit looking new for years to come.

-Can I put my pit on a wood deck? If you're putting your pit on any surface that isn't rock, concrete, stone, brick etc we recommend placing your pit on a large piece of flagstone. Depending on the size of your fire, the entire pit can get extremely hot! Proceed with caution! Build fires slowly to ensure the surface and surrounding areas are safe. 

- Will the paint come off? In many cases yes. Sometimes, during the first use, you will have bubbling, cracking or flaking paint on the sides and bottom of the fire pit. We recommend using it several times before attempting to touch up any effected areas with Stove Bright aerosol sprat paint. 

- How do I keep it looking new? You will need 5 items: wire brush, scoop shovel, water hose, broom and Stove Bright aerosol spray paint. If there's any ash in the pit hose it down generously. Scoop ashes into a bucket. Hose down the inside and outside, of the heavy duty fire pit, removing dirt and debris. Let it dry and then wire brush any loose, peeling or flaking paint. Then use your broom to dust everything off. Be sure all surfaces are clean and dry. Set your Heavy Duty Fire Pit up in a well ventilated area (outside is best) protecting the surrounding surfaces for painting. Following the directions on the Stove Bright aerosol paint can touch up the affected areas or paint the entire pit and make it look like new again. Most pits can be totally repainted with 3-4 cans.    

- What kind of wood or charcoal can I use in my Heavy Duty Fire Pit?- Any wood or charcoal you prefer. Don't worry you will not damage the fire pit. We use a lot of oak because it's readily available in our area. Whatever you prefer to use is fine.
