Things To Consider
If you are intending on using the Camp Chef Propane Del Rio FP29LG fire pit at home, then you might plan on putting it out on your patio or in the yard. The fire pit actually looks great on either the patio or in the yard, but it is important to remember to keep the fire pit covered when not in use. Otherwise, the black bowl part of the fire pit can get damaged from rain and other water in the air, which causes rusting in the bowl. It will actually rust fairly quickly, so it is important to not leave it out uncovered.
The Del Rio fire pit does sit very low to the ground. However, the flame size is fairly large, which should make it okay for keeping a small group of people warm on a cool night. If you find that it sits too low for you, then you can elevate it by sitting on a sturdy surface.
While the fire pit does only come with lava rocks, they can be replaced with ceramic logs. Unfortunately, Camp Chef does not offer the logs though, so you have to seek them out from another manufacturer.
