How We're Smokeless
Each of our Smokeless Fire Pits are designed to increase airflow, allowing more oxygen into your fire pit to burn off the smoke before it leaves.

The X Airflow raised air vent design on the bottom of the fire pit enables oxygen to feed the fire even after significant ash build up.
Double Wall Technology
Air enters a cavity at the bottom into the double wall while the fire heats the walls. Hot air rises through the gap between the two walls as the fire burns.
The hot air then exits the double wall through holes around the rim. This pressurized, heated oxygen mixes with the smoke and causes secondary combustion or reburn.
How It Works
Fires are made when quality fuel, sufficient heat, and oxygen meet. Smoke is the result of an imbalance in one or more of those elements. Our fire pits are designed to provide plenty of oxygen, allowing for a hotter fire that burns its own smoke before it has the chance to escape the fire pit.
Why Choose Smokeless?
We pioneered smokeless fire because you deserve to relax without drawbacks. You shouldn’t have to fight tears as you roast marshmallows. Gone are the days of smoky-smelling clothes. At Breeo, we think it’s time you get to enjoy the warmth and aroma of real, wood-burning fire unhindered by smoke.
Tips For Building the Ultimate Smokeless Fire
Choose Your Fuel
Choose your fuel. Select a firestarter material, like shredded newspaper or cardboard, a dry, thinly split softwood for kindling, and a dry, split hardwood for your main fuel. Make sure your fuel is less than 4" in diameter. Focus on creating as much airflow as possible throughout the whole fire building process.
Build a Log Cabin
Start with 2 full-size pieces of cord wood and lay them caddy-corner on the X Airflow system across from each other. Then, lay two pieces of kindling perpendicular across those. Fill the inside square with your firestarter. Continue with the pattern in kindling until it approaches the top of your fire pit, filling the center with firestarter as you go. Taper the "cabin" inward as you get close to the top.
Light it Up
Using a grill lighter or a long match, light the firestarter at the bottom of the log cabin. We do not recommend using regular matches, as they can be harder to use when you're reaching into the fire pit.
Feed the Flames
Once you've got a tiny blaze going, start adding cord wood without disrupting or knocking over the kindling cabin. Starting with smaller cord wood pieces and gradually using larger ones as the fire grows, lay the pieces toward the perimeter of the bottom of the fire pit. This will help your fire spread evenly around your fire pit.
Let it Burn Out
When you're done with your fire, patiently wait for the fire to burn out on its own. Don't pour water on it, and never leave your fire unattended. If you do need to walk away, always cover with a spark screen and make sure there's nothing near the fire pit that could catch on fire or be damaged. Clean out the ashes every 4-5 burns once the fire pit cools to maintain airflow and always have a smokeless fire.
