Smokeless Firepits in Time for Fall


Outdoor living spaces—patios, decks, and more—offer many different elements to enhance your outdoor experience. After all, the whole purpose of landscaping and hardscaping is to increase the enjoyment of your home and property! One of the most popular features is a fire pit. Everyone seems to love gathering around the fire pit, just like they may have done with campfires in the past.

However, one thing can quickly put a damper on everyone’s good time—smoke! In a turn on the old saying, where there’s fire there’s smoke. Thankfully, there are ways to minimize that problem. One excellent product that Knutsen uses is the Zentro Fire Pit Insert by Breeo. The Zentro is designed to fit into most standard fire pit structures; it’s available in 24-, 28-, and 32-inch sizes, both circular and square. Steel and stainless steel options are available in all sizes. (In addition to the inserts, they also offer standalone firepit models.)

You may be thinking, “Smokeless fire? How is that possible?” Good question! And honestly, no fire can be 100 percent smoke-free; but there is a way to greatly minimize that smoke to the point where it’s barely noticeable. The key to creating a smoke-less fire is a double-wall design. Small holes in the bottom of the inner chamber coax hot air between the walls. This hot air rises between the walls, heating more as it does, until another series of holes at the top carry it back into the fire. This hotter air creates a secondary combustion, burning the smoke created from the fire until it’s almost undetectable.

You’ll no longer have to worry about who will be sitting in the trail of drifting smoke coming off your fire pit, moving chairs around and disrupting your good time. What’s more, the secondary combustion makes for a hotter, more even flame giving you have a better cooking source for grilling. Things like steaks, chops, and burgers never tasted better! And there’s a griddle accessory available for eggs, bacon, and pancakes, as well as a chicken rotisserie and swing-away grill. There’s even a kettle winch and cast iron kettles for soups and stews!

The great news is that all of this will fit right into your new or existing fire pit design; the Zentro is made specifically for that purpose. Furthermore, Breeo is a local company, formed and functioning in Kinzers, PA.

So when it’s time to consider creating or upgrading a fire pit for your outdoor living space, Knutsen Landscaping is your source. And with Zentro Fire Pit Inserts, we won’t blow smoke in your face!
