Propane Campfire Recommendations

Looking for current best options for a small propane campfire. Lots of older info that is missing the answers to the below.

Considering:

Little Red Campfire
Outland Firebowl Premium
Campfire in a Can (No longer available)

Specific propane questions:

Is there a way to connect these directly to the AS LP quick connect?

Best way to connect directly to one of the 30# main tanks?

Would also like the ability to use 1# green bottles for short periods of time.

I have a Campfire in a Can and just bought an extended hose with quick connects on end. Had to change out the adapter on the CFIAC end if I remember right but was easy. If you have trouble with one, take it to a propane place and they will work with you to make appropriate connections.

Campfire in a Can is still available from what I know. They are just out of stock, but still made.

Forget about the "green bottles." These pits draw mucho BTUs. A 30 # tank will last you about 30 hours running about 4 hours per night.

We want something that is easy to pack and relatively small.

Definitely I would go for the Little Red Campfire. Between the adjustable flame which is awesome, to the heat if wanted. Easy to transport and use. "Green Can" forget it for any fire pit etc. I have been told by many who have enjoyed my fire, they like it. Many have bought the same one. Shop around because the prices very from place to place, also Craig's List and eBay. Good luck. We also just use it for ambience.

Thanks! For what we want I think the Little Red Campfire is a great way to go. Looking for best way to connect to the AS tanks or maybe use my 10# AL propane tank.

The Viking tanks look good.


Still interested in how to connect a Little Red Campfire directly to the trailer, either the LP quick disconnect or to the tanks.

I run my CFIAC to an "extended Stay" fitting on the tank itself. I have an extension hose so I can put the fire wherever I want it. I hook my grill to this setup as well.

That sounds like a good option. Any more details on the extended stay fitting?
