Our BLAZE MONOLITH TOWER

ON SALE NOW!

To state the obvious, burning perfectly aged firewood is our foundation here at Greatest Blaze & Co.  The vessel that our gold is burned in is another…

Our BLAZE MONOLITH TOWER has quickly become a dominant feature in our arsenal of “Greatest” products

Let’s break down what exactly it is;

The “Made in America” Monolith is much more than just a fire pit.  We like to say that it’s a portable outdoor fireplace that can be used to enjoy a relaxing blaze with ‘family and friends’, or simply by yourself on a perfect evening!   It stands 6’ tall and weighs over 400lbs

Our big-3 “secret sauce” categories:

Design

This incredible design not only is nice on the eyes, but it’s also so much fun to use.  It has an open front (and rear) access point to add / maneuver logs.   The fire sits in a removable steal-tray to keep the embers, logs and fire blazing in a contained area.  On the bottom of the Monolith is a perfect area to store your firewood

Construction

The Monolith is precision cut from heavy-duty 3/16’ American steel.  Every inch is hand rubbed with an FDA-approved linseed oil that creates natural water repellant which gets baked into the steal with every use.  This application also makes it free of toxins when heated.  Many other (cheaper) outdoor fire pits, use variations of paint and powder coatings that will chip and degrade over time when exposed to high temperatures..

Functionality

Although it weighs 400+ pounds, it sits on rubber pilasters so it can be wheeled around and placed in to a perfect spot.   The covered storage area at the base protects your firewood from moisture and extreme elements so its stays dry and ready to go when activated.  It also has a lifetime warrantee!

The Monolith comes in 7 pieces and needs to assembled.  Depending on how handy you are, it takes about an hours’ worth of time.  If you are local to our area in Greenwich CT we are happy to assemble and deliver to your home for a small fee

This American-made beast is built so well that you will OWN the bragging rights with everybody you know as having the ultimate outdoor fire tower!

Our Newest Find: Exotic, Aromatic Piñon Firewood From New Mexico

At Greatest Blaze & Co., we love to burn all types of wood. Burning great firewood is as important to us as drinking a nice bottle of wine.  When you sit down for an incredible dinner with friends and family or your significant other, it wouldn’t cross your mind to serve cheap wine, right?  Well, we look at it as a very similar experience with burning the GREATEST firewood. We only want the best, and we know we are onto something with our newest firewood offering.

We just received a shipment of wonderful, sustainable Piñon firewood from New Mexico.

It’s a perfect addition to our “best in class” firewood lineup. When it’s burned, Piñon has a unique and pleasantly distinctive fragrance.  It is even made into popular incense sold around the world!

Piñon is coveted for its aroma and clean, long-burning heat.

Piñon has always been coveted around the Southwest and it’s very popular on the West Coast of the United States, but it’s fairly unknown here in the Northeast. In fact, out on the West Coast, especially around some of the bigger cities like LA and San Diego, Piñon has become the new rage!

Customers can’t get their hands on it fast enough and suppliers can’t keep up with the demand.

Piñon will be a “regular” in your firepit or chimenea!

Piñon firewood lights easily, has a long burn time, and generally leaves little ash for cleanup. When you add a few pieces to your outdoor fire it will greatly elevate the experience by the incredible aroma.

It’s quickly growing very popular, which is why our suppliers are special; they are committed to sane, practical, sustainable forestry practices and to developing a long term, Triple Bottom Line model which brings value to the consumer, the producer and the forest. In essence, our Piñon wood is the Fair Trade coffee version of wood!

We are very excited about Piñon and hope that you are too.

Stay tuned for ordering details…

Interesting Facts About Piñon Wood

Piñon pine is a small tree, usually from 10 to 30 feet high.  The seeds are edible and were an important source of food for Native Americans. Today, the popular pine nuts you purchase at the grocery store are mainly from Piñon pine.

An interesting aspect of Piñon firewood is that the “sap” contained in the wood is a natural mosquito repellant.  Early Native Americans would burn Piñon firewood regularly to specifically aid in the nuisance of keeping mosquitos and airborne pests away.

Piñon wood (also spelled Pinyon or Pinon) comes from the high mesas and rolling plateaus and foothills of the Rocky Mountains across the Southwest of the United States.  Piñon does not grow in forests but rather in isolated clumps and clusters.  When it gets too tightly packed it becomes dwarfish and prone to mistletoe.  We target those areas for thinning in all our work.
