    Obviously pellets don't really burn without good air flow... I always thought it would be neat to have a outdoor fire pit that would burn pellet though. Anyway I saw this advertised.. Anyone have any experience or thoughts?

    It's made by Easyblaze.

    Agree. If its open on the sides and/or bottom, it should provide adequate air flow.

    That flame looks serious.... !!

    Must be the Structural guy in me...But I could care less about that tiny fire pit (no matter what it burns), I can only hope someone can post a picture of what those wood columns are holding up!

    What's the price on that? My firepit cost me $3.00 for a 55 gal drum.

    I saw the firelogs this past weekend at the Midwest Horse Fair. they were being sold by a shavings dealer. All I could think of is "NOOOOOOOO don't use up all the sawdust making those things when I need pellets!"

    Hello

    That is a great idea. I would like to make my own using a cheap fire pit with my shop vac set to blow with the hose under it! Should work great that way with wood pellets! Maybe someone can build one?

    i would imagine that if you built a small platform out of expanded steel mesh you could convert just about anything into a pellet burning pit.

    Nothing more relaxing than sitting by a nice fire with the soothing sounds of a shop vac running!! ;)

    Yes, but you could put a long hose on it and run the shop vac in the house or garage! Then you can put a speed control on it for lazy flame up to Jet plane!
