Luxeve Smoke-Reducing Fire Pit FAQ

Hello again, this week’s blog addresses some of the frequently asked questions about our Luxeve Fire Pit. Hopefully this blog will answer your questions about the Luxeve Fire Pit and show you the many benefits of owning a Luxeve Fire Pit. We hope this blog is beneficial to you as you look to find which fire pit will best meet your needs.

Below are some frequently asked questions about our Luxeve Fire Pit, the answers to those questions, and some benefits that the fire pit provides.

Question: Is the Luxeve Fire Pit really smoke-reducing? If so, how much of the smoke does it reduce?

Answer: Yes, the Luxeve Fire Pit is really smoke-reducing. Once the fire has reached full size and the walls of the fire pit have been heated up, the fire pit reduces an estimated 80%-90% of the smoke that the fire creates. There are several conditions that can hinder the smoke-reducing technology from working properly. Some of these hindrances include; wood that is too wet, wood that is too green.

Luxeve Benefit: The smoke-reducing technology that is used for the Luxeve Fire Pit keeps the dreaded smoke from chasing you and your friends around the fire pit and makes every seat around the fire pit become comfortable and inviting for you and your guests.

Question: What does the Luxeve Fire Pit burn?

Answer: The Luxeve Fire Pit burns wood.

Luxeve Benefit: There’s nothing like sitting around a traditional wood fire. This is the camp fire “fuel” that has been used for thousands of years for cooking, warmth, light, and so much more. The Luxeve Fire Pit gives you a modern fire pit that uses this traditional “fuel”. A wood burning fire pit can also save time and money during installation.

Question: Will the Luxeve Fire Pit rust?

Answer: Yes, over time the Luxeve Smoke-Reducing Fire Pit will rust. The fire pit bowl is made of steel and coated with a black, Hi-Temp Grill Paint. This grill paint is rated to withstand temperatures of 1,000 – 1,200 degrees Fahrenheit. However, this paint, along with all other grill paints in the market, can not withstand the direct contact of a fire. Because of this, the paint that comes in contact with the fire, mainly the paint that is inside the fire pit bowl, will begin to burn off within 1-2 uses of the fire pit. As the paint burns off and the raw steel of the fire pit is exposed to the outdoor weather, the spots where the paint has burned off will begin to rust. Again, this is something that mainly happens inside the fire bowl of the fire pit. The outside skirting of the fire pit is made of steel and coated with a powder coating. This powder coating should not come in contact with the flames of the fire, so rust should not appear on this skirting for quite some time.

Luxeve Benefits: There are a few steps we have taken to make sure the Luxeve Fire Pit is equipped to withstand years of use in the outdoors even with rust. First, we manufacture the Luxeve Fire Pit with thicker gauge steel so that the rust does not have a strong effect on the fire pit’s strength and durability for multiple years. The fire pit is made of approximately 130 pounds of steel and painted with a black, Hi-Temp Grill Paint. Second, a can of the black, Hi-Temp Grill Paint is included with every Luxeve Fire Pit to allow you, the customer, to touch-up the spots of the fire pit that may begin to show rust. There are some customers who would rather let the fire pit take on the natural rust look, which will eventually give it a Patina finish look.

Question: Will the Luxeve Fire Pit burn hotter than a normal fire pit?

Answer: Yes, the Luxeve Fire Pit burns approximately 25% hotter than a normal fire pit. The reason the fire pit burns hotter is due to the re-burning of the smoke which the smoke-reducing technology provides the fire pit. The shape of the fire pit is also enclosed more than most fire pits, which allows the fire pit to retain heat for a longer period of time.

Luxeve Benefit: The extra heat that the Luxeve Fire Pit generates will provide you and your friends greater warmth when sitting around the fire on a cool evening.

Question: What size is the Luxeve Fire Pit?

Answer: The Luxeve Fire Pit has a 24” Inside Diameter and an outside diameter of 31”. The height of the fire pit is 15”.

Luxeve Benefit: The size of the Luxeve Fire Pit is perfect for creating a nice size fire. The fire pit is also very easy for two people to pick-up and move if needed.

Question: Does the bottom of the Luxeve Fire Pit have holes for water drainage?

Answer: Yes, the Luxeve Fire Pit does have multiple holes at the bottom. These holes provide the fire pit with water drainage and better airflow. The holes are covered with slats that help to keep them from being clogged with ash.

Luxeve Benefit: The holes on the bottom of the Luxeve Fire Pit allow rainwater to drain out of the fire pit. The holes also provide additional airflow for the fire pit, which helps the smoke-reducing technology work more effectively.

Question: How often should the Luxeve Fire Pit be cleaned out?

Answer: We recommend that the Luxeve Fire Pit be cleaned out every 4-6 uses, as long as the fire burns completely down to a fine, grey ash each time. This number of uses can also be determined by the amount of wood that was burned during each use. Using an ashtray and shovel, the fire pit can easily be cleaned out in 5-10 minutes.

Luxeve Benefit: Keeping the Luxeve Fire Pit free from ash will allow the fire pit to burn more efficiently.

Question: Is there a warranty on the Luxeve Fire Pit?

Answer: Yes, there is a 3 Year warranty on the Luxeve Fire Pit. The paint is not covered under this warranty.

Luxeve Benefit: The Luxeve Fire Pit can be purchased with confidence knowing that it is backed by a 3 year warranty.

These kettles and dutch ovens are the perfect match to our smoke-reducing, wood-burning fire pits. Their heavy-duty, fire-resistant build makes them the perfect accompaniment to any grilling fest. Whether you cook a stew, try out this baked bean recipe, or put in a little desert after the steaks are grilled, you’ll be sure to love these kettles, big and small.

Breeo’s new kettles hang perfectly from the Kettle Winch accessory for our Zentro and Ablaze fire pits, or it settles nicely onto the Swing Away Grill accessory or the Double Flame Grill.

Even if you have no accessories, you can always make an oven environment right down in the coals of any of our smoke-less fire pits.

If you’re ready to try it out on one of Breeo’s smoke-reducing fire pits, following is a delicious Apple Crisp recipe we have tried out in the Double Flame fire pit.

Dutch Oven Apple Crisp for Campfires

Ingredients

1-1/2 sticks of butter
1 pound brown sugar
1/4 cup cinnamon
9 oz quick oats
4 pounds apples
1/4 water

Directions

Make sure you have a hot bed of coals in your fire pit to begin. See this how to guide here.

  • Core and slice the apples.
  • Layer the apple slices in the bottom of the kettle.  (Throw in a bit of lemon juice to prevent browning, if you’d like.)
  • Mix the cinnamon, oats, and brown sugar a separate bowl. Cut in butter.
    The mix should be fine and crumbly.
  • Pour the mix evenly over the apples.
  • Sprinkle water over the top.
  • Put on lid, and place the kettle down in the coals in your fire pit.
  • Cook for about 45-55 minutes.
    Check every 10 minutes or so. If the crust is drying out, add water as necessary.
  • Top with ice cream or whipped cream and enjoy!

New Wood Burning Fire Pit Launch – Zentro Basic

Introducing our newest Zentro fire pit, the Zentro Basic! The idea for this new wood burning fire pit launch, came as a result of seeing a need in the market for a standard fire pit that has; a high quality build, is made in the USA, and is a competitive price in the standard fire pit market. We wanted to provide the market with a fire pit that was not like your average big box store fire pits. A fire pit that is strong and durable, looks great, and can be bought for an affordable price. The result we came up with is our new Zentro Basic fire pit, built by skilled, Amish Craftsman in the USA

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Our Zentro Basic fire pit has several similarities to our original Zentro fire pit. It looks similar, has a similar design, burns wood, uses the same cooking accessories and is made to fit in block fire rings. However, one very distinctive difference is the fact that it does not come with the smoke-reducing technology that our original Zentro fire pit has. Not having this smoke-reducing technology allows the fire pit to keep its high quality build, yet keeps it at a very competitive price with standard fire pits in the market.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Specifications – The Zentro Basic fire pit is built to fit into a block fire ring with a diameter of 30”. If a larger diameter than 30” is needed, we offer a Basic Retro Fit Ring that can be purchased with the fire pit. This Retro Fit Ring will extend the diameter of the fire pit, to fit a block fire ring with a diameter of 31”- 36”. Though the fire pit does not come with the smoke-reducing technology, it does have holes on the bottom, covered by metal slats for protection, to allow air flow and water drainage. The fire pit is built with a flat bottom, so it can be set on the ground instead of being inserted into a block fire ring, if desired. A metal lid can also be purchased with the fire pit, to help protect the inside of the fire pit from the weather when it’s not in use.
