Bingo. Having a propane "campfire" is like having a DVD that play the scene of a fish tank if you can't afford a fish tank. It is an illusion, nothing more.

I respect campfire bans. When one is in place I don't try to fool myself. If it isn't a real campfire, it isn't a real campfire.

We bought our Quikfire when we had a truck camper. There was no place to carry wood, so we had a choice of sitting in a circle staring at each other or getting a propane rig. We chose the propane! And now that we have a trailer, it is just more convenient than carrying a bunch of wood. We use wood in our woodstoves at home almost everyday in winter, so it's not like I don't like a wood fire; I just don't like the hassle when camping.

Don't forget the potential cost savings for propane compared to wood.

In some areas they have restrictions on bringing wood in from outside the area (I believe to prevent insect transportation) even a state park I've been to stating no wood to be brought in from outside the park.

This can make it cost $5-$25 in wood a night for that cheap primitive campfire, depending on size of the wood piles you buy, the size of your fire and how long you have it going.
