About Our Patio Heater

The Lil' Timber patio heater compared to a propane patio heater via thermal imaging

The New elite series of Timber Wood Pellet Patio Heaters brings performance and style into one great product. Providing head to toe heat is the focus of this heater but with the added bonus of an elegant stainless steel design. Requiring no electricity, this heater’s flame is powered only by gravity and the draft created from the stove pipe. Using wood pellets as an Eco-friendly alternative fuel just makes sense when compared to the high price and inefficiency of propane. Pellets run at a quarter of the operating cost, while producing twice the amount of BTU’s.

  1. Jeff Rumberger

    The Big Timber Elite is a well built product that uses very high quality parts. It burns very clean and produces a large amount of heat. It gets rippin hot in a short amount of time, easy to light and operate. Great idea and love this product!

  2. Jim R.

    Received our big timber elite today. Followed the videos for assembly and it made it so easy. It works as good as advertised or better and looks amazing. The craftsmanship and engineering is tops. The customer service is second to none. Best of all it’s made in Oregon right here. I would highly recommend over anything else. Thank you.

  3. Jerry Thornton

    The pipe is too thin, but otherwise it’s a nice unit. Ordered the elite but didn’t get my cage yet. Hopefully it hides the crooked upper pipe.

  4. Chris B

    Great stove, high quality materials, lots of heat, and above and beyond customer service. What else is there to say? Would 100% buy again, and am recommending to all my friends.

  5. Annette S

    Received our Big Timber Elite late spring (quite warm already I might add) and of course we couldn’t wait to put it together and fire it up regardless of the temperatures. So we did! Super impressed! Our biggest struggle was deciding where to put it as we have more than one outdoor spot that is perfect for this heater. In fact, it is easy to move as well so we have used it in more than one location. I would also like to share that the ordering process and responsiveness from the team was exceptional!

    The installation was simple, and it is very easy to operate. We also love the look of the stainless cage. Not to mention the confidence the safety cage gives us in the added protection for our furry friends who spend time with us when we are outside enjoying the unit.

    Now that the temperatures here in the south are starting to feel like fall in the evenings, this unit is going to get a lot of usage bringing family and friends together.

    Love the Big Timber Elite and highly recommend it!!!!

  6. Joel Bridgwood

    Awesome product. Everything they advertised is true for me. Incredibly well made. Easy to operate. Wonderful warm radiant heat. I’ve had the propane heaters that they compare with. This is such a far superior heater. It doesn’t use a lot of pellets but I run it so much I’m starting to buy in bulk. Couldn’t be happier. Nothing better than the whole family sitting around outside having fun and this heater makes that possible. Very happy customer.

  7. Matt B

    I’ve had my elite for about a year now and I love it! This thing looks amazing and the heat feels great! With the hopper extension I can fit the entire 50 pound bag of pellets in it I get somewhere around 5 hours of heat. That comes out to about a dollar an hour. With the cage around the elite I feel much safer with children/pets around it and the heat comes right through the screen. Awesome product!

  8. Mike

    I own a small restaurant in California, Covid was tough, new rules everyday. Purchased four Big Timber Stoves so we could stay open and serve customers outside. TimberStoves work and create a conversation piece. No more propane issues. Safe and easy for staff. We burn every night, the cost of pellets vs propane has paid for the heaters. We have burned out one fire grate. Replacement cost is about $100.00. Should be noted pellet quality makes a huge difference with heat quality. I like Golden Fire from Lowes or Green Tree also from Lowes. I returned a complete pallet from ACE hardware and the Tractor Supply product is between fair and good.

  9. Clista Rakow

    We got our Big Timber Elite in May 2021 and love it. It is beautiful and makes enjoying our outdoor space so easy. We tell anyone who will listen that this is the patio heater to have.

  10. Rodger Richey

    Was tired of having the valves stop working on propane patio heaters. Seemed like they were designed to fail after one year. This heater was easy to put together. Definitely watch the videos. Amazing amount of heat that covers you from head to toes.


    I’m super excited about cooler weather so I can fire up my new pellet heater! It arrived in great condition & has some definite weight to it!

  12. Dave Randall

    With friends, I experienced a Timber Heater while dining outside at a restaurant in Carmel Valley, CA. I just knew we had to get one for the patio of our Idaho Cabin. We did. Not going to sugar coat it, I did experience some aggravation putting it together though I am a licensed GC and constructed in in concert with the YouTube video playing, but….. VERY WELL WORTH ANY AGGRAVATION. We simply love the heater. It is better than having an outdoor fireplace. So warm. So pleasant on cool evenings. Our cabin is on Airbnb and our guests are raving about the heater as well. Of the many amenities at the cabin, this is simply the best!

  13. Cameron Charchenko

    We love our Big Timber Heater! We added on the cage, weighted base, cover, and wheels. It has made for a portable, heavy duty, and visually appealing outdoor heater! None of our friends or family have seen anything like it and it is always a conversation starter. It casts a great deal of heat, something our previous propane heater wasn’t able to deliver. Highly recommend the Big Timber for anyone looking for a patio heater and/or fire pit.

  14. Nick B

    We love our Big Timber Elite Heater. Use it all winter long here in New England for dining al fresco on the deck.

  15. Sean Regan

    If you want to warm your bald spot and freeze your feet, buy a propane heater. If you want to warm your whole body, buy a Big Timber. The glass view into the firebox is entertainment for your deck. People love to see the fire and don’t miss the propane smell. My kids like to play outside when it snows but always get cold. This heater will put out heat for hours, all day so they can play and never stop.

  16. Ken Shastany

    We bought the Big Timber Elite in March as a way to entertain friends and family outdoors during the Pandemic. We have a propane heater and fire pit, but neither comes close to the Big Timber for heat output and appearance. Absolutely love it and have referred several friends as well.

  17. Seth Rubida

    Love my Big Timber Elite, well worth the wait. The Customer service has been great through out the purchase process would love and will be ordering another in the future Great Product!!!

  18. ZK

    Unparalleled heat output…vastly superior to those terrible propane towers…REAL FIRE!!!…

  19. Paul L.

    This unit puts all other ones to shame! Although the upfront cost is high, the long-term investment is priceless. Just ask my family, who is really enjoying the extra time being able to spend outdoors, regardless of how chilly it may be.

  20. Lee Weber

    We bought out Big Timber last winter after trying to use propane heaters to allow us to enjoy our back porch. It works awesome! It not only puts out a lot of warmth, it’s great to look at the fire through the glass. I was amazed at how easy it was to light and use. Pellets are cheaper and easier to use than propane. We are really pleased with our Big Timber!!

  21. Scott Gleba

    I’ve had both the little timber and the big timber they both are awesome units. I gave my little timber to my brother-in-law he absolutely loves it I currently use the big timber and that thing runs in the winter time nonstop add the cooktop and you got a complete package.

  22. John B.

    The Big Timber Elite Patio Heater doesn’t disappoint! Looks great, is easy to use, and puts out plenty of heat. Assembly was pretty straightforward (the video instructions they have posted on YouTube are great!) and it doesn’t take all that long. I reached out to customer service before placing my order to confirm availability and received a prompt response. Overall, I am super impressed with the product and company. Well worth the price and I would highly recommend!

  23. Mike DeLelys

    This thing is awesome! Very cool aesthetically and puts out a ton of heat. Great to use when you don’t want the fire pit and the smoke. Highly recommend!

  24. Tracy

    Wow! Got the Big Timber this afternoon, assembled it, and now I am drinking eggnog perfectly toasting warm on a 30 degree F night. I have to rotate to keep all my body parts at one temperature…hot! The only problem I see in this heater is now I want two! Or maybe four! Great American design and craftsmanship.

  25. Donovan C.

    I’m happy with the heat it puts out. Screen gets hot but not going to burn someone if they brush up against it.

  26. Reuben E

    Awesome product. My wife and I will be spending a lot more time on our patio.

  27. Gary Moritz

    Really well made. The screen traps some of the heat but if you open the door its like your in Arizona.

  28. Markum Inn Restaurant

    This is by far the best option for our outdoor guests ! Bar none, we looked at all options ( mushroom , infrared ,”San Diego ” propane, Etc.) These guys really figured it out . The least and best heat delivery system for the cheapest way to deliver!! Pellets are a fraction of the cost of propane.

  29. Chris H.

    As a family we sat on the deck watching the snow fall. The warmth of the patio heater and a cup of hot chocolate was the best 3 hours of my week. The body of the heater puts off enough heat, my son was in shorts and socks about 6 feet away. Easy to move and easy to use. Pellets are better then dealing with wood.

  30. Hank W.

    You’ll love this! We’re able to spend more time outside enjoying our “Pure Michigan” lifestyle during the cooler temps.

  31. John Garcia

    This is a great product. I wish you could adjust the pellet flow easier but otherwise I’m really happy with it. One $5 bag of pellets lasts several hours.
