Keep the Flame Genie running for about two hours (maximum) with only half a bag of pellets (estimated). Therefore, you will need comparatively less fuel to run this fire pit, and you can also conserve fuel resources. Compared to the cost of quality firewood, the wood pellets are way cheaper. So, you can save a bit of money with the Flame Genie. A metal fire pit can reach up to 800°F, pushing 200° to 400° of radiant heat onto decking; plastics soften at 176° and melt between 250° and 350°. A thermal barrier can prevent high heat from warping composites. DeckProtect (shown) is an aluminum tray, perforated for drainage, that contains flameproof basalt rock-fiber insulation.
How do you light wood pellets? Fill the stove's hopper with wood pellets. Open the burn pot door and add accelerant to the wood pellets. Hold a long-reach butane lighter, like those used to light gas fireplaces or grills, near the pellets and light it. Wait for all the pellets to be fully ignited; they turn red around the edges when burning. via YouTube Capture
We bought a Flame Genie and tried it out for the first time this last weekend. So far we are very happy with it. Burned super clean with a nice flame to enjoy. Could not be easier to take with you as it packs in itself. I also put the wood belts in an old kitty litter container for transport. Much easier to deal with than firewood. Ted & Donna.

To load your fire pit fill the drum with approximately 2 ½ inches of wood pellets. After adding the pellets I like to use a fire starter to get the fire going. Just light the fire starter and place it on top of the pellets.
Regular high-temperature spray paint will work, but baking in a large oven allows the coating to adhere properly. Lastly, powder coat is a less common finish but is seen on budget options like the Flame Genie. While powder coating is a great option for many applications, it is not the best for repeated high-heat usage, like in a fire pit. The flame pattern is nice to look at once it get going and it does put out plenty of heat. The pellets are readily available at stores like Lowe's, Home Depot, Walmart and Tractor Supply. We got ours at Tractor Supply $2.99 for a 40 pound bag. What we have found that most times we burn about 20 pounds a night and you do have to keep adding pellets to keep the fire burning. But at 20 pounds a
