Campfire in a Can

I have been reading the posts on "Do you Like Campfires" and in a recent post "Campfire in a Can" was mentioned as a solution. I do like campfires but it is getting more difficult to haul wood from one state to another and I am also getting lazy in my old age and would like a quicker way to stare a campfire.

So I was wondering for those who own one could they tell me the pros and cons versus a regular campfire, how many different makes are there and where to buy.

Thanks
John

This Little Red Campfire is available at Camping World about

$130 +-. Small, compact and adjustable flame good for ambiance and or heat. I have one and love it. Most people that see it in operation decide to buy it. You will too.

Saw the Little Red Campfire at CW last weekend. I was tempted but resisted. I will have to do something before I take my grandkids in the Airstream as I'm planning on doing S'mores. (This may prove a great time to use the outdoor shower....)

I purchased a Camp Fire in a Can from Amazon. About $250.

The skeptical family was actually impressed.

I looked on Amazon and they were selling the Campfire in a can for 299. So I was wondering when you bought yours.

thanks

When wood campfires are verbotten as they are now in most of NM because of the drought. Propane campfires are legal.

I love my Little Red Campfire in a Can. It's about the same size at the one they are mentioning in this thread, but much cheaper - it's $111 on amazon right now with free shipping.

It's just so much more convenient to not deal with hauling firewood or buying those tiny bundles for $8.

I did very little research before I purchased my Campfire in a Can - so cannot really say it's better or worse than any others. A few folks across different forums indicated they liked them, so fine - off we go.

The highly skeptical family was actually impressed - so there's a testimony for you!

You might want to do some more reading before you pull the trigger on one...there is some comparison data on the Campfire in a Can website - but of course it will be bias towards their product.

Good luck.

The main reason I bought the Fire Dancer over other brands was the appearance of the fire. The Fire Dancer uses vermiculite to disperse the gas. I bought it thru Amazon when it was on sale and got free Prime shipping, so the price was a factor for the timing of the purchase.

I bit the bullet and bought the "fire in the can". I did look at most if not all of the others and checked a number of forums. In all cases the Fire in the Can got very good reviews except for the price. I am looking forward to using it and also not hauling or purchasing wood any more.
