I've been using a Solo Stove Bonfire for a few years now and love it. Didn't realize they now offer a stand to lift it off the ground. Just ordered one. Thanks!

I received one last year and it works fairly well, but still can smoke sometimes....my problem carrying it around with firewood is that where we camp in the Rockies, typically starting in July thru September they ban all camp/wood fires. We found ourselves toating all this around but never getting to use it. Also, some states and Canada do not allow you to bring in your wood anymore due to insects. This winter we got a very nice propane firepit...(swore I would never go that route), but it turns out to be quite nice and takes up less room, is pretty clean also with carrying bag like this one from Amazon. I gave the Solo back to my son...we used it last weekend here in TX, but here too they have fire bans in many places during the summer...No issues so far burning propane; can control the fire, and doesn't use much fuel.

Campfires are great, most of the time. I love poking around, stoking the flames and having a beer. But in the NE just about every campground we've stayed at recently does not allow you to bring your own firewood, so $15 bucks a night adds up pretty quick, and the wood they sell does not always burn well. I'll have to look into a propane firepit, at least for a back up.

Understand...just added a picture to my post...I researched these pretty good before selecting this model. My friend got a cheaper model which is nice also. I called the Mfg. in Canada, and talked with a sales guy about which one I should get, and ended up getting this model. So far, no complaints...Their is a lid which straps on with bungie type straps to keep the lavarock in when transporting. We got the cover also which zips up and keeps it all in a nice easy to handle package for moving around in the bed and such. We had similar cover for our Solo too...just too much of a hassle compared to the propane now...I still will do a campfire when I can using facilities where I camp, I am sure, but this propane model is pretty nice backup.

I keep a Camco Little Red Campfire in my trailer all the time. It easily fits under one of the rear twins....I also carry a Camco folding fire ring for when I can burn wood and there's no fire pit. It folds flat and goes in a Cordura bag.

The propane ones seem nice. And the best part is that they don't make the smoke of the wood fires, which is nice for the rest of us with breathing problems.

I use my propane quite a bit and having compared many fire side evenings i think once you start paying even $7 plus for a little bundle of wood the propane starts to be cheaper. Its also nice when we decide lets go for a walk....fire off...... back from walk.....fire on. Don't get me wrong I love my wood fires but with bans and smoke problems its getting harder to have them these days.

Portable Propane Fire Pit

Ditto the other posters.

With all the bans and traditional pit smoke being so close up (usually under the awning) went Propane fire pit route with 2 sizes of Ext hoses to get from front tanks to the rear.

Always bring a bag of thick mesquite wood chips. Toss one in every 30 mins and you have all the camp aroma with little smoke and no wood to buy/tote. Shuts off at bedtime.

Because the prior formal camp stove was limited in pan size orientation and thus even heating power, we leave that home now.

Adding grate, New pit double duties itís ability as new high BTu camp stove which allows any size pan, gives adjustable heat, cooking and less to pack. Found a perfect size aluminum pizza pan to place it on protecting any surface below. Whole package 125.00 plus 35.00 in Ext hoses.

Similar experience with less clutter, weight and cleaner burn!!! Cool !

Hmm.
Iím not sure I want to lug around an extra 20lb propane tank - I guess we arenít heavy fire users though- just occasional users and for our needs a $5.00 bundle of wood lasts us two nights.... and some summer nights are just too warm for a fire. If I were camping a lot with chilly nights it might be worth it. Certainly better smoke wise (although the solo stove is smokeless too).

Been carrying around the Little Red fire-pit.
Works very well, compact, no smoke and serves the need for open fire pit.
Shut it down and in 30 minutes put on the lid, latch it down and disconnect the 8 foot hose from the tank and stow.

No muss, no fuss, no bother.

Camp on!
