Firegear "Burning Spur" Review

Firegear Patio

Firegear’s new product line brings with it a completely new burner unlike anything else offered at Fire Pits Direct—the “Burning Spur” design. Is this burner worth your consideration? Let us help you decide!


Firegear’s burning spur design features spokes radiating from a central hub. This design offers more than just an interesting aesthetic—it allows the burner to duplicate the appearance of a wood-burning fire. If you’re looking for a natural campfire appearance for your fire pit, the burning spur makes a great option.

The sloped design of each leg allows water to run off easily, while bottom weep holes release water. An internal dam built inside the center of the spur burner prevents water from entering the gas line. This set of features help prevent damage from freezing and thawing and prolongs the life of the entire burner system, ensuring many happy nights around the fire pit.

Burning Spur


In addition to the intelligent design features, this burner also features premium build quality. With its 304 stainless steel construction, the burning spur has been built with longevity in mind—you won’t be replacing this burner after a few short years. This system has been designed to hold up to the wear-and-tear of bad weather and regular use.

Say you received a defective burner, though. It’s very unlikely, but it can happen. Then what? Not to worry—Firegear offers a consumer warranty of five years and a commercial warranty of one year. Firegear stands by the quality of their products.

Burning Spur Detail 1


From big to small, Firegear has it all. The burning spur design comes in 12-inch, 16-inch, 22-inch, 31-inch, and 36-inch models as of this writing. If you’re looking for a complete kit with a pan, the matching burner pans are available in a range of sizes from 16 inches to 44 inches.

Remember, always find the dimensions of your desired burner pan before constructing your fire pit. This will save you the headache of adapting your fire pit later, which often results in a suboptimal setup.

How it Compares

Versus a Round Burner

Round fire pit burners are the most popular burners in the industry. They’re the time-tested, traditional gas fire pit design. It’s worth noting, however, a round burner produces a noticeably artificial flame.

Due to the design of their concentric rings, round burners can produce a “birthday candle” effect (seen here next to a penta burner). To many this isn’t an issue—it may even be desirable if you’re seeking a modern appearance. However, for those who want a “natural” campfire look, a burning spur offers an excellent alternative.

With its spoke-like legs, a burning spur avoids the more artificial appearance of a circular flame. Its high flame height also allows this burner to pair well with an artificial log set—great for creating a real campfire appearance without the mess of smoke and ash.

Versus a Penta Burner

If you’ve decided you want a natural campfire appearance for your DIY fire pit, you’ve likely narrowed down your decision to either the Firegear spur burner or the HPC penta burner. Unfortunately, the decision becomes a bit more difficult to make from there.

Both burners are made from 304 stainless steel and are built to last, both burners promise a realistic flame appearance, and both burners offer options at relatively similar price points. The real differences between these two designs come in their optional offerings (like ignition systems, remote controls, and similar accessories). Those differences are beyond the scope of this review so feel free to contact us and we can help you find the right system for your install.

Bottom line: The right burner for you will almost entirely depend on your personal preferences. Both burners offer excellent options, and you really can’t go wrong with either style.
