Wood-Burning Fire Pits are the most authentic and traditional option.
It is the most popular type of fire pit, the most portable, and the least expensive.
However, there are several downsides.
For one thing, they are more troublesome. Lighting a fire is not always a simple task.
You need wood, match, and time. Clean up is not quick either.
You will need to dispose of ashes and other residues.
Also, wood-burning fire pits produce smoke. This is a concern for a couple of reasons.
The first is environmental. Smoke pollutes the air and thus some cities or regions regulate the use of wood-burning fire pits.
The second is that smoke can be bothersome to those around it.
The smell and irritation of smoke will be something that you will need to manage.
