Fireside Outdoor

Pop-Up Pit

Mark Wolf is the fire-savvy brains behind Fireside Outdoor, the easy, go-anywhere fire pit that’s enhanced with extra safety measures. He’s also the Maker of Campfire Defender, a so-smart fire protection cover. Boy Scouts let Mark know they were fans and asked him to come up with a nothing-left-behind fire solution next. His portable, packable fire pit is made with the same blend of safety-first and ease-of-use approach. The lightweight aluminum frame assembles into a roomy pit in about a minute. Its optional heat shield prevents a fire from heating the ground beneath it, which makes it safe to use on grass, a patio, or just about anywhere outside. A fire mesh in the pit prevents ash from falling through and also allows for better airflow, so a fire will be less smoky and burn more efficiently. The pit meets all federal, state, and local fire regulations and is U.S. Forest Compliant, so it’s good to go just about anywhere you feel up to taking it.

Quick Questions

How much weight/temperature can the fire mesh hold?

The fire mesh is designed to hold up to 100 pounds of wood comfortably. Made from a special stainless steel alloy designed to withstand repeated heating and cooling cycles, the fire mesh can withstand temperatures up to 2,700° Fahrenheit. (Average campfire is 1,200°-1,500° Fahrenheit.)

Is the fire pit stable in the wind?

Because of its low center of gravity and wide base, the fire pit is extremely stable even in very high winds.

How does it burn with less smoke?

Smoke comes from the volatile organic compounds (tree sap, hydrocarbons, etc.) in the wood and a lack of airflow to create a hotter temperature. Because the fire mesh allows an optimal airflow into a fire it significantly reduces the amount of smoke produced. Another byproduct of this increased airflow is a brighter, livelier fire—your coals will burn with a bright orange glow.

Does this burn faster than a normal campfire?

Yes, at the beginning of the fire the wood will burn at an increased rate due to the optimal airflow. As the logs break down to embers they form a barrier that slows down the airflow and slows the burn rate to an efficient level while keeping the no smoke effect. For an example, eight 6-inch by 18-inch Juniper logs will burn for approximately three hours.

How long does it take to cool?

All of the materials used in the pit are engineered to cool in one minute after your fire has been extinguished.

Will ash fall through the fire mesh?

The fire mesh is designed to be an extremely tight weave that can still allow airflow and remain flexible. This tight weave only allows the absolute finest ash particle to pass through—99% of your ash will not pass. Typically on a three-hour fire, you will have a tablespoon of ash that has passed through.
