From basic, wood burning cauldrons to propane-burning setups that double as patio centerpieces.

Fall nights by the fire are nights well spent. And the fire pit is the ideal vehicle to make this scenario a reality. The metal enclosures make it easy to build manageable backyard blazes. They come in a variety shapes and sizes, from basic cauldrons to elegant enclosed models, and are fueled by either wood or gas. But which one is right for you?

To make things simple you we turned to the largest seller of fire pits in the world, Amazon, and their most trusty resource, reviews from people just like you. We set a few criteria though, they had to have at least a rating of 3.8 stars out of 5 (only the best), and have no fewer than 80 reviews (no one hit wonders here) before we would even consider them. Here are eight fire pits — four wood burning and four gas burning — that will elevate your backyard.

Best Wood Burning Fire Pits

Solo Stove Bonfire Fire Pit

This minimalist stainless steel fire pit is the result of a successful Kickstarter to create one of the best outdoor fire pits ever. Well, they succeeded. Its double wall design creates a constant airflow that allows even the most stubborn of wood to blaze up quickly. The best part of this fire pit is that it emits almost no smoke due to its ingenious design so everyone can sit close. It only weighs 20 pounds so you can set it up anywhere, and can be easily transported to tailgates and campgrounds.

Landmann Savannah Garden Light Fire Pit

A classic steel fire pit this unit has square cutouts circling the body to allow air in and the glow of the fire out. It has a solid base to support logs, a large lid, and interior wrapped in wire mesh to ensure no burning embers escape. Setting it up upon arrival is simple with only four legs, and at 22 pounds you can easily move it around your yard. After 590 reviews, it maintains a rating of 4.4 stars.
