Propane outdoor fire pits are a favorite because they are so easy to use and burn clean.
There’s no ash, no clean up and no risk of flying embers. I also love that I’m not constantly switching positions to avoid having smoke in my face.
All of these choices are solid performers and come in a range of styles to fit your backyard set-up. Most also include an insert so they convert into functional table tops.
This list is a compilation of our favorites with a complete spec breakdown to help narrow the field.
This is a sweet luxury outdoor fire pit that is easy to use and looks great.
Propane gas fire pits are so popular because they are easy, don’t create ash and don’t require any clean up. There’s also no risk of flying embers or smoke dodging like you have to deal with when it comes to wood burning fire pits.
This model is roomy and makes a great outdoor coffee table when not in use. The propane tank is conveniently hidden on an easily accessible pull-out rack inside the center of the unit and can be refilled when empty.
Ignition is push-button and doesn’t require any matches or complicated lighting, just a few AAA batteries.
The overall construction is solid with weather-resistant rattan and an aluminum frame. It comes with the hose and regulator as well as a tempered glass wind guard, a decorative glass stone set for the inlaid fire chamber and a cover for the lid to use as a normal table.
The flame intensity can be adjusted using the knob and the overall size of this model is 43.25’’ x 27.5’’ x 24.5’’ so it feels generously sized.
I love this option from Outland because it serves a totally different need than most of the gas fire pits on this list and it is SO functional.
If aesthetics don’t factor into your selection of an outdoor fire pit, this utility-style fire bowl from Outland is a great pick for camping and outdoor adventures when you’re looking for an easy, no-mess option.
The 893 is compact and easy to transport, set-up takes just a couple of minutes and the porcelain-coated steel bowl produces a smokeless flame and a solid amount of heat. This model is gas-powered and has a single burner with an output of 58,000 BTUs.
This model is also approved for use during most campfire bans because it burns cleanly without smoke.
The kit includes a cover, hose and an adjustable regulator. Total size is 24’’ x 24’’ x 13’’ and weighs about 24lbs. Outland makes this style in a variety of sizes so you can select the dimensions that work best for your needs.
For a stylish fire pit experience, this model from Outland is great to look at and easy to use.
Functionality meets form with this piece. The design is meant to fit seamlessly in with your outdoor lounge set, using a faux basket weave style with durable materials to give a luxe look but long-lasting, all-weather build. The materials are also low maintenance and heat resistant so they’ll still look good season after season.
The length is about 44 inches so it really gives you a substantial space to work with and has a great heating radius. The center basin is filled with decorative glass rocks that the fire flows around.
The stainless steel burner offers 35,000 BTUs for impressive flame performance and the auto-start ignition makes startups seamless. The propane tank fits inside the casing and is easy to access when needed for a refueling. I wish the tank pulled out on it’s own inner cart the way it does on our first pick, but that’s being really picky.
This is a beautiful fire pit that is a top choice if you’re looking for something a little more high-end to complement your backyard space.
This is an excellent compact fire pit with a multi-functional design and durable build.
A table top style, this model includes a cover lid that can convert it into a small coffee table, perfect for resting drinks or food platters. When in use, the inner firebox includes lava stones as a base.
The overall construction is solid with mostly steel parts and a fire-resistant finish. The single burner has a 50,000 BTU output and the overall design cleverly hides the propane tank inside the unit.
Ignition is fast with a simple knob-style start-up, no matches required.
The dimensions on this one are a little smaller than some of the models in our top spots (28” x 28” x 25”), making it a solid pick for small patios and decks.
If you’re looking for a round style fire pit, this is a great choice.
The total output is 50,000 BTUs and includes lava rocks in the center fire chamber. The flame level is adjustable and can be amplified if you’re looking for added heat.
Overall construction is solid, using stainless steel to prevent damage to the surface due to heat exposure, it is also all-weather resistant and features a mosaic-style tile pattern on the top.
Ignition is a simple knob style and easy to manipulate. The propane tank is hidden in the center of the table, accessed by a concealed door for easy access when re-filling is needed.
A lid cover is provided for the center fire chamber so when not in use, this model can be used as a side or coffee table. Total dimensions are 41.3’’ x 27″.
Designed to mimic natural outdoor stonework, this is a low-profile style fire pit.
If you’re looking for a piece that feels less like furniture and more like an actual fire pit built into the ground, this is a great option. The styling feels less stuffy and the legless design keeps it low to the ground.
It includes a one-step spark ignition storm, and flame control adjustment. The single burner has an output of 30,000 BTUs and the design includes decorative lava rocks at the center.
Overall dimensions are a little smaller than our previous option at 27.5” x 9.5”. The tank does not fit inside the unit and needs to be kept separately, with a hose running from the fire pit to the propane.
I really appreciate how modern and stylish this unit is, especially the outer rim around the main fire chamber.
This is a square style and great for smaller spaces. It has a single 50,000 BTU output burner with a simple electronic ignition and flame control.
Included in the package is the table insert so it can be converted into a functional table-top when not in use, black fire glass, and a protective cover. The control panel is concealed and the propane tank sits nicely inside the unit behind a decorative door.
The overall construction feels solid and is intended to be all-weather resistant. Dimensions are 30” x 30” x 25.4”.
A little different from the other options on our list, this is a fire column style for decorative use in your backyard space.
The single burner has an output of about 40,000 BTUs for powerful heat and light. Lava rock is used in the fire bowl and a protective cover is included. Pulse ignition makes it easy to light and extinguish when you’re finished. The flame intensity can also be adjusted as needed.
Overall dimensions are 19.5” x 29.1” x 19.5” and the total weight is about 65 lbs.
The column hides the propane tank but a hidden panel allows for easy access. Construction is a long-lasting but lightweight Envirostone so it’s easy to position in your space even though it looks heavy.
The most stylish design on our list, this is also the largest square option and a great choice for a contemporary backyard space.
The single burner has a heat output of 50,000 BTUs and a concealed propane tank sits inside the center base. A lid is provided to transform the top into a functional coffee table space when not in use.

I am a grill freak! It's hard to pick my favorite thing to grill, but if I had to choose... it is still a tie between pork ribs and a juicy beef burger. I am currently grilling on a Weber S210(I live in a small space) but my dream grill is definitely a summit. Those things are bad ass. Anyways I would love to hear from you, leave a comment or question below!
