Fire pit chimney, when it’s attached to the stone or concrete fire pit reminds an outdoor fireplace, which looks much more interesting and adds completely different character to the patio or backyard than the ordinary opened one. The latter one simply looks like a slightly organized and decorated bonfire. That’s why if you’re planning to add the heating or cooking feature to your garden relaxation area, it’s better to opt for a fire pit with chimney.
First of all, it’s much more convenient it terms of the ease of starting and maintaining the flame, as it protects the flame from the strong wind and even precipitation. However, it may like building a brick or stone outdoor fire pit with chimney is too expensive and excessive. But in fact, if you decide to incorporate one of them into your backyard, you’ll improve your patio significantly. You’ll even be able to turn it into an outdoor cooking and dining station and serve your guests and family members with exclusive flavorous food, cooked on fire. And, while sitting in front of this outdoor feature, you’ll feel like you’ve moved your comfortable living room outside to enjoy fresh and crisp air and still remain warm and cozy.
If you’re still not ready to commit to building a full-blown outdoor fireplace, you may opt for a metal or ceramic fire pit with chimney, which looks kind of medieval or even orientally. And, it still performs the functions of a brick or stone chimnea. It will maintain the flame much longer, it won’t lose as much heat and it won’t scatter as much sparks everywhere as its opened version. Some people even note that they need less wood or other fuel to keep such pit going. Maybe, this benefit is also caused by the fact that ceramic or metal features aren’t too big. So, they’re also great for small patios or even opened verandas.
