Go Big

These built-in versions come in both gas- and wood-burning models, and provide a stunning focal point for your porch, patio, or backyard. Plan to use them long after s’mores season is over for warming up on cool fall nights with a mug of hot cider, or taking the chill out of late spring cookouts after the sun goes down.
