Its slim profile allows it to tuck into even the narrowest space, ensuring that you can bring the warmth and joy of a fire wherever your adventures may lead.
ADAPTS to Your Needs and Situation
Experience the unmatched versatility of the Crucible with its 9 adjustable leaves that put you in complete control of your outdoor fire. These leaves allow you to easily adjust the intensity of the flames by regulating airflow and redirecting smoke, giving you the ability to create the perfect ambiance for your outdoor gatherings.
When the night comes to a close, the Crucible has you covered with its thoughtful design. Simply close all of the leaves, and the included grill plate transforms into a reliable spark guard. This ensures that the fire will safely burn down to a fine ash, giving you peace of mind as you settle in for a restful night's sleep.
FEEL the HEAT
Fire, the essence of warmth and comfort, is meant to release heat. Yet, many "smokeless fire pits" lack the soulful warmth that a true fire brings. Enter the Crucible wood fire pit, designed to reignite that missing heat. With its innovative design, the Crucible delivers an authentic fire experience that's perfect for enjoying the communal and healing warmth of a fire with friends.
Unlike smokeless fire pits that often sacrifice heat for smoke reduction, the Crucible is meticulously crafted to provide both. Its thoughtful design allows for optimal airflow, resulting in a blazing fire that radiates warmth and creates an inviting ambiance.
BBQ for a Few or the Entire Crew
The "Bring the Heat" bundle, complete with the Crucible outdoor fire pit and an adjustable grill plate that takes your BBQ game to the next level. With ample room to sizzle up some mouthwatering sausages and veggies, the grill plate lets you indulge in delicious outdoor cooking right on the fire pit.
But that's not all! The Crucible is designed to be versatile and expandable. With the option to purchase two additional grill plates, you can transform the fire pit into a cooking surface that spans nearly one full meter. Imagine the possibilities! Whether you're hosting a family reunion, entertaining friends, or camping with your buddies, the expanded cooking surface of Crucible provides more than enough room to prepare a feast that will satisfy everyone's appetite.

You can stoke the embers, fan the flames, and safely adjust and carry the Crucible’s leaves and grill plates with this masterfully designed fire tool. And why not add Firebrand Viper fireplace tongs to complete the set?
STRONGER and more BEAUTIFUL over Time
Crafted from robust Corten steel, the Crucible is built to withstand the rigors of outdoor use and is designed to age gracefully. Over the first 6 - 12 months of outdoor exposure, the Crucible develops a stunning brown patina, adding a touch of rustic elegance to its appearance. This natural patina not only enhances the aesthetics of the fire pit, but it also serves as a protective layer, preventing further deterioration of the steel.
The patina acts as a shield, safeguarding the Crucible from the elements and ensuring its longevity. It forms a barrier that helps protect the steel from rust, corrosion, and other forms of weathering. This means that your fire pit grill will continue to stand up to the test of time, remaining sturdy and durable for decades to come, even with repeated use in various outdoor environments.
Backyard Fire Pit or Work of Art? Both!
The Crucible's unique and striking shape, combined with its beautifully aged Corten steel construction, elevates it from a mere fire pit to a captivating work of art. The interplay of Crucible's geometric design and the natural patina that develops on the Corten steel creates a visually stunning focal point in any outdoor space.

Corten steel, also known as weathering steel or corrosion-resistant steel. It is designed to form a protective layer of rust on its surface when exposed to atmospheric conditions, which helps to protect the underlying metal from further corrosion.
Corten steel was developed in the 1930s by the United States Steel Corporation as a material for railroad coal wagons. It has since been used in a variety of applications, including building facades, bridges, sculptures, and outdoor art installations.
One of the unique features of Corten steel is its ability to self-heal. As the protective rust layer forms on its surface, it seals the underlying metal from further exposure to moisture and oxygen, slowing down the rate of corrosion. This makes it a popular choice for outdoor applications where durability and weather resistance are important.
The Crucible Fire Pit & BBQ comes in 3 parts: 1 Base Plate, 12 interchangeable legs/leaves, and 1 or more grill plates. The base plate weighs approximately 25 lbs and slides into the large carry bag. The 12 legs/leaves weigh a combined 25 lbs and goes into a separate smaller bag. And the grill plates weigh roughly 2 lbs each. So in total it is between 50 - 55 lbs.
Yes. As tempting as it is to immediately start flippin’ burgers and cooking up your first mouth-watering meal, the grill needs to be seasoned to get the best results from your BBQ fire pit.
Seasoning is the method of curing the metal and burning off any oils or coatings from the manufacturing process. It creates a barrier between the metal and the food and helps protect the grill and extend its lifespan. With regular maintenance, seasoning also makes the post-BBQ cleaning a lot easier. It will provide you with the best cooking surface to produce quality meals on your Crucible wood fire pit.
Without regular and proper cleaning, you run the risk of accumulating abrasive ash, so always clean your fire pit after each use since. It is important to wait until the wood ash has completely cooled down before you start cleaning.
