We love ours! No wood smoke, OK to use during fire bans, and turns right off. Does use a lot of propane though.

Thanks countryboy59. Do you feed it direct from your 30lb tanks or do you have a separate tank?
Also, can you tell me the height so I can figure out where to store it in my 23.

It’s about a foot high. The zippered pouch holds everything without a mess and fits under dinette table.

I bring an extra propane tank to avoid running out my main tanks.

I have been using a Camp Chef Propane Compact Fire Ring ($63.00 on Amazon) with no complaints. Puts out decent heat, easy to set up and store.

This one?

https://www.amazon.com/Outland-Fireb.../dp/B00TNS8HMI

The specifications peg the height at 11" but the carry bag would add a bit IMO.

Now on sale for $89.99.

Outland and other brand fire pits have been mentioned in a variety of threads:

I spent a good few hours researching the differences of the Outland Firepits, before selecting the 863 with the zipper cover on Amazon. My friend has the smaller 19" model 893 and loves it! I also called the factory in Canada to get some perspective of the differences before selecting the 863. Here is what I was told about the Cypress 863: The 863 has a lower wider profile and uses a new Helios burner technology for more natural flame. Supposed to put out more heat due to the design of the bowl. The optional zipper cover is a good investment also; with the firepit plastic cover attached using the custom "X" type straps with handle included, it allows you to pick up the unit when unit is cool with the lava rocks secured inside and easily set into the zipper cover for storage/travel, without a mess. It is a very nice unit!

I also looked at the larger 25" Mega model , but did not want/need the added size for camping purposes...likely the 893 basic models would work out fine. There is a comparison chart on Mfg. website to see the differences:

So I'm intrigued by this product. After reading a slew of the reviews on Amazon, I've come to the following conclusions:
1. It's cheaper to operate than purchasing bundles of firewood from the campground.
2. It puts out somewhat similar heat to a small campfire.
3. A 20# propane tank lasts about 5 nights.
4. Is safer to operate in a close confined campground without fear of hot embers burning holes in canopies.

Can anyone confirm or deny these claims?

We have the 19” Outland and carry a separate 20lb propane tank for the flexibility of placement and to be able to use it at home. We like it. Mike

We have the #863 - 21” size. Very adjustable flames with excellent heat output.
We use the 1 lb. tanks that we refill. No comfortable room in the Jeep for the 20 pounder.

True, but you will use a bit of propane. Anyone who has problems with fire smoke will appreciate. A tip- put everything back in the pouch when done. Avoids losing any parts.

I will give you my perspective on your questions:
1) depends on price of wood!
2) puts out a decent amount of heat and you can control heat, but big fire from wood can do same.
3) Really depends on how long you have fire on and if full blast or medium. I can get a 4-5 days running a few hours each night with just the wife and I but with the grand kids doing Smore's, we can burn a bit more fuel!
4) It is safer for a lot of reasons, but more important, in many campgrounds mid summer, it's the only fire allowed...no wood fires in US and Canada when fire danger is high! Also, remember that most states and Canada recently changed and do not let you bring in wood from another state due to insects!
5) most important to us; no smokey cloths, hair, inside trailer, and no moving the chairs around to avoid the smoke!

We have the 19" Outlander. Very well made, and convenient to use. Happy with it.
