Propane campfire? Campfire in a can

Recommended Posts

I saw a reference to a fire pit on one of Reed and Karen's posts.

Do any of you use Campfire in a Can? Supposedly, multi fuel.

We often run into burn bans in parts of Canada, but propane devices are usually ok.

At home, we love our gas firepit on the patio. We have open flame restrictions in the community.

If you have the campfire in the can, do you like it? Have you used it in fuels other than gas? Do you cook on it?

My friend has the camp fire in a can and he prefers ours after seeing it because ours looks like coals and can be stirred up and arranged so that the fire works better. We bought ours at Lowe's and add our own extra special lava rocks when we find one. We cook hot dogs, hamburgers, marshmallows over it like any other fire. The Campfire in a Can has the fake logs, so arranging the fire isn't possible unless you toss the logs and add your own rocks. From what I can tell, they all have the same burner that can be modified for huge flames if you want also by drilling out the orifice a bit. There are tons of videos of them all on YouTube.

We have a two burner propane stove which is light and folds up very nice and the optional bag to carry it in. Also we have the propane campfire similar to Lukens but we ordered from Amazon. Sorry, we haven't used them yet as wife still works full time and then some. The two burner cooking stove can be used with small canister type propane or with the adapter hose a 20# propane tank or from the trailer hook up. We pretty much follow the Lukens equipment as we appreciate their camping knowledge and experience. But many others have been helpful to us too.

Last month we were at Costco and saw the Outland Mega Propane Fire Pit for $99. Amazon has this model for $160, although right now it is $130. I had not seen these so I read about them when I got home. The reviews are impressive. You don’t get smoke in your face and clothes with these. The flames are pretty to watch and it gives off good heat. So we bought it, brought it home, and I carefully unboxed it. This is the Mega model with a 24 inch diameter, and we decided it was too large for our needs. So I boxed it back up like new and returned it.

 

We then bought the 18 inch model from Amazon for $130. LOL, we paid more for the smaller version! Go figure, this 18 inch model is currently $160 at Amazon. (I can’t figure out Amazon price changes, but if you want to follow the price of an item over time check out https://camelcamelcamel.com, where you can also set up alerts for price drops.)

 

We used the Outland Propane Firebowl on our trip last weekend, and it was great. You can sit fairly close to get the warmth, closer than I would with a regular fire. I swapped out the propane hose for one that uses quick connect. I think the propane firepit takes up less room in the tow vehicle that the box of firewood we took to Moab in April.

 

There is one major advantage to the Propane Firebowl over a regular fire. We made fires every night when we were in Moab last month at a BLM campground without water, and we had to use water to make sure the fire was completely out before retiring for the night. We were boondocking, and water is a precious commodity to use for putting out a fire.

It appears from the picture that you are using a Yakima Holdup Bike Rack for two bikes.  We use the Yakima Holdup Bike Rack but have not carried the bikes on any long distance trips.

 

What is you experience with the bike rack and what is the longest trip you have made carrying bikes?

 

Looks like you are having a great time from the picture.

I am happy with the Yakima Holdup Bike Rack so far. I have the rear view camera, and I can see the rack as the car travels, and the rack and the bikes are remarkably stable. Longest trip with the bikes was 500 miles, round trip.

 

I am going to post some comments on the bike rack on this thread: http://olivertraveltrailers.com/topic/how-are-you-transporting-bicycles/
