What Is the Definition of an Outdoor Fire Ring?

A fire ring is defined in most cases as a stone or metal enclosure that is built to contain a fire and is typically placed directly on the ground outdoors. Fire ring and fire pit are often interchangeable terms, but it may depend on where you are or who you are with. Metal fire rings – like those manufactured at Fox River Fire Rings – employ high-quality, mild steel that can be finished to protect the steel and create a more rustic appearance. Fire rings can be portable, standalone units that are easy to transport to and from a campsite or can be integrated directly into the outdoor decor of your patio or home.

When you shop online for a fire ring, you will find that fire rings may be divided into four primary categories based on fuel type – wood burning, propane, gel fuel and natural gas. Here is a closer look at each type/category of fire ring that you may find online.

Wood Burning Fire Pits

The most authentic and the most common, wood burning fire pits provide family and friends with hours of enjoyment and plenty of memories. Fox River Fire Rings are built for a traditional wood fire and incorporate custom designs into the high-quality steel. Common varieties of wood burning fire rings include stone or brick fire rings, wood burning grills and outdoor fireplaces.

Propane Fire Pits

Are you tired of chopping wood for your fires? Less traditional, but more attractive to some outdoor enthusiasts, propane fire pits are available in a wide variety of designs that include expensive copper bowl fire pits, portable propane fire pits like a Solo Stove and fire pit tables that you find on outdoor patios. Propane fire pits often use glass, rock or stone to create a more attractive fire.

Gel Fuel Fire Pits

You or a member of your family may want to enjoy a fire without the smell of burning wood or smoke in your eyes. Gel fuel fire pits are a modern solution that employ a chemical gel fuel to create an odorless, smoke-free flame. Key examples include TerraFlame Gel Fuel Fire Logs and tabletop fireplace varieties that are ventless and smoke-free.

Natural Gas Fire Pits

Are you interested in an upgrade to a propane fire pit? Natural gas fire pits can be built into your outdoor patio and provide an endless supply of natural gas that is tied into your home utilities. Common types of natural gas fire pits include a sunken design that is built into a patio and tabletop designs.
