Are Breeo fire pits smoke free?

While we can't guarantee that our fire pits will never produce any smoke, you can be assured that, with the proper steps, a Breeo will produce essentially no smoke and significantly less smoke than a conventional fire pit. To achieve a smokeless fire, it is very important to take the proper steps when building the fire. The amount of smoke produced depends greatly on how well the fire is built. For tips on how to build a smokeless fire, check out our article here.

How do Breeo Fire Pits work?

Breeo fire pits work through a double-wall, secondary combustion design. Basically, when the fire is burning well, the walls heat up and the hot air rises through the gap between the two walls. The air exits the wall cavity through the line of holes around the rim. This pressurized, heated oxygen mixes with the smoke and causes it to reburn. This is called secondary combustion. For more information on how it works, check out our How We're Smokeless page.

We do offer easy and affordable financing through our partner, Bread, so you can pay for your purchase over time. To get your rate, head over to our financing page.

Do you offer local pickup?

Unfortunately we do not offer local pickup at our manufacturing location, all of our orders are processed through our shipping department. However, we do offer free shipping for all our orders to the lower 48, so there is no additional charge to have it shipped directly to you.

What are some tips for building a smokeless fire?

The key to achieving maximum smoke reduction is a very hot fire spread evenly throughout the fire pit. Moving hot coals toward the outside wall will be helpful as well. This will provide more heat in the double-walled air chamber, which in turn will provide a more aggressive air current up through the air chamber, forcing that secondary combustion which is essential to making a fire smokeless.
Please note that adding bigger logs to your fire can cause the fire to burn cooler, so start by using smaller pieces then slowly adding bigger logs as the fire builds. As for stacking the wood, our best recommendations are as follows: Start by adding fire starter or dry shreds of paper or cardboard. Then, surround the fire starter with small pieces of kindling or dry twigs. Once the smaller pieces of kindling are burning well, carefully add larger, split logs (3-4" in diameter) one at a time. We recommend stacking the wood perpendicularly in a log cabin style. Also be sure that your wood has been dried sufficiently before attempting to burn. For more info, check out our article here.

How often do I need to clean out my fire pit and what should I use to do so?

We recommend cleaning out your fire pit at least every 6 uses to avoid ash build-up. Ash build-up can cause the airflow in the bottom of the pit to be blocked, which in turn can cause a less smokeless fire. The best way to remove the ash from your fire pit is to use a Breeo Ash Removal Tool or a vacuum designed for removing ash. Always allow sufficient time for the ashes to cool before attempting to remove them.

Which fire pit is the best fit for me?

It all depends on what your needs are and what you value most! If you value portability and enjoy taking your fire pit on excursions with you, the X19 is our smallest size and ideal for taking on trips or for a smaller outdoor space.
If you're less likely to take your fire pit camping but love hosting small parties and cooking over the fire, the X24 is the pit for you.
If you prefer a more stylish and sophisticated look and don't plan to cook over the fire, your best option might be our Luxeve Model.
If you're looking for an anchor for your outdoor space, enjoy hosting and cooking for large parties, and want to impress your friends and neighbors, the X30 is the ideal fire pit to meet your needs.

How far away from a structure should my fire pit be?

Breeo does not have a set policy on the distance of placing a fire pit from a structure. However, we recommend that all fire pits should be at least 10-20 feet away from any structure or combustible surface. Always refer and adhere to the local regulations in your area and check the weather forecast before lighting a fire. Breeo's fire pits are no more or no less hazardous than traditional fire pits so all regulations for outdoor fires would apply.

Is it safe for me to use my Smokeless Fire Pit on a deck?

Unfortunately, due to liability reasons, we cannot recommend using any of our Smokeless Fire Pits on a deck. If you use a Breeo Fire Pit on a deck, you assume the risk of any damage that may occur. NEVER use a Breeo on wood or composite decking without placing pavers underneath the fire pit or using a spark screen.

Can I place my fire pit on concrete?

Yes, however, we recommend using a protectant (e.g. heat shield, gravel, or pavers) underneath it to prevent any heat damage to the concrete or its sealant.

Where are Breeo fire pits made?

All of our products are made by skilled Amish craftsmen in Lancaster, PA. For more info on where and how our products are made, check out our article here.

Is the fire pit lid waterproof?

While the lid is not entirely waterproof, it does significantly reduce the amount of rain or snow allowed into the fire pit.

Are there drainage holes in the fire pits?

Yes. These drainage holes are important not only for water drainage but also to increase air flow during combustion to increase smoke reduction.

Do you sell covers for your fire pits?

Unfortunately, Breeo does not currently carry any kind of fire pit cover. Breeo fire pits are designed to withstand the elements and last a lifetime. However, we do offer a lid for all of our fire pits to keep out rain or snow.

Is installation or assembly required for any of your products?

Do your products have a warranty?

Can I burn Duraflame, Enviralog, etc., logs in my fire pit?

Yes. However, we do not guarantee that they will burn as efficiently as split, kiln-dried hardwoods. They will not damage the fire pit, but there is a possibility of less smoke reduction, as these logs have been manufactured to burn longer, but with less heat.
