I have been wanting a fire pit for our backyard for quite some time now, there is just something magical to me about sitting outside in the spring and fall when there is just a touch of chill in the air with a fire going and friends by my side. Fire pits just add so much to a backyard space in terms of beauty and functionality.
I decided on the Patriot Fire Pit from Ohio Flame for our backyard for many reasons. The simplicity of the design appealed to me, the size was perfect and I loved that it was made in the USA! The steel that they use is even sourced from local steel mills.
So, the cost of the Patriot Fire Pit may be a bit higher than their competitors, but we know this is a product we will have for many years to come and we are proud to support our US labor market!

The American steel that this fire pit is made from is meant to darken in time and form a natural iron oxide patina finish.
It also features a rain drain so if it rains or water gets in it another way you can easily drain the water out. Ohio Flame also has a Lifetime Warranty that it will not rust through in your lifetime. The Fire Pits are assembled and created by local artisans that they work with making this a truly all American made product.
The Patriot Fire Pit is available in several sizes including 24″, 30″, 36″ , 42″ and 48″. I got the 24″ which was a perfect size for our yard and you can see the size of it compared to me in the image below.
We loaded it up with some old scrap pieces of wood and started a fire, and I have to say at the moment this picture was taken, I was quite happy! A couple of things we are looking to add are a fire screen which it seems is pretty easy to install and possibly wheels for when we have it on our cement patio for easier moving.
Since we do live in Florida there is often rain and we have been able to test out the drain and it worked flawlessly as well. Some of the fire pits I had been considering did not have this feature – and it is not something I would have thought about so I am glad they added it! We have had our fire pit for about 6 months now and leave it outside all the time and it has held up well and we have had absolutely no issues so far.
You can get Patriot Fire Pit on the Ohio Flame website or on Amazon – I buy mine on Amazon so I can get the cash back on my Amazon credit card!
This is one purchase I am 100% happy with! I know this fire pit will be a lifetime addition to our backyard because it is so well made and sturdy. I highly recommend Ohio Flame if you are looking for a fire pit!
Their collection of fire pits is awesome too. They all have that rustic type feel but come in a variety of styles.
Their Artisan Fire Pits are too die for! I personally cannot spend that kind of money on a fire pit – I wish I could, because I want one of these so badly! These are just 2 of their options – but how gorgeous are they!
