Do you love the smell of wood smoke in the air? How about the sound of a crackling fire? If you answered yes to either of those questions, you would love smokeless fire pits! Smokeless fire pits create a more pleasurable experience than traditional wood-burning fire pits by reducing the amount of smoke produced, making for a more enjoyable experience. This blog post will take a closer look at how smokeless fire pits work and their benefits. 

What Are Smokeless Fire Pits?

The sights and sounds of sitting around a campfire are hard to beat. Unfortunately, the smoke produced by traditional wood-burning fire pits can often be a bit of a downer. That's where smokeless fire pits come in! Smokeless fire pits reduce the smoke produced, making for a more enjoyable experience.

Smokeless fire pits are wood-burning fire pits that produce less smoke than their traditional counterparts. The term "smokeless" means reduced smoke compared to a typical fire pit. Smokeless fire pits are also known as catalytic fire pits because of the science behind the smokeless design.

How Do Smokeless Fire Pits Work? 

The secret to smokeless fire pits lies in the design. Traditional wood-burning fire pits allow hot air, embers, sparks, and ash to escape through the opening, whereas smokeless fire pits recycle much of the smoke and debris back into the fire to be consumed.

Smokeless fire pits make use of inner and outer walls and heat up the air between them. As the air heats up, it rises and is forced out of the upper holes of the appliance. The air that is forced out of these holes pushes the unburned fuel (smoke, embers, ash, and debris) back into the active flames to be re-burned and consumed. The result is significantly less smoke lingers, burn the eyes, makes the throat scratchy, infuses smokiness into clothes, or leaves as much ash.

The Benefits of Using a Smokeless Fire Pit

There are many benefits to using a smokeless fire pit . In addition to reducing the amount of smoke produced, smokeless fire pits also: 

  • Produce less ash and debris
  • Are more efficient (use less wood)
  • Are easy to use
  • Require less maintenance
  • Require less cleaning due to reduced ash
  • Keep clothes from reeking of smoke
  • Keep your backyard safer with reduced embers
  • Reduce the burning eyes and scratchy throats of those sensitive to smoke
  • Be used for cooking with an optional cooking grate

If you're looking for a more pleasurable fire pit experience, a smokeless fire pit is the way to go. With reduced smoke production, less ash and debris, and many other benefits, smokeless fire pits are an excellent option for anyone looking to enjoy the sights and sounds of a campfire without all the smoke.
