Portable Propane Fire Pit

I am looking to no avail for a portable propane fire pit. Catch is it must have mesh sides and a solid top. Any ideas? I've been looking and haven't come up with anything, let alone not willing to spend more than 200$ on it.
Anyone make their own?

I can't answer for a pre-made one, but you certainly could make your own with a washing machine tub and some copper tubing.

I think a typical mesh side, metal lid firepit with a residential propane log lighter, would be a great idea.
I, myself, wouldn't want a fake log camp fire or just the propane flame.
Log lighters are great, but my preference for camping is a well built fire and a match.

Costco sells some online, not sure it meets your criteria

Sounds like you're describing a propane space heater. Are you looking for a lowrider version of that?

Why Mesh sides and solid top on a propane pit? The Mesh and lid are to prevent sparks from flying (Flying ash) and propane produces no ash.

That said. get two fire pits, One is a wood pit that matches your desire, the other is a propane fire that fits inside the wood pit, you will need to drill a hole for the propane hose .. Or you coudl cut a hole ito the mesh and leave it so you could bend the mesh back (or use a hinge) when you want to use the pit with wood.

I am headed in that direction. Thanks.

There are several to choose from on ebay - I just searched 'propane fire pit'. A couple of them look pretty good for camping.

They are proud when setting the price, but we've found The Amazing Campfire In A Can is, well - it's amazing.

Check the spec's on BTU, as this was the best in this size and easy packaging range that we could find.

Best to all,
Smitty

Bought and returned, pretty, but small. Did order 28in Durango from HD.
I am going to make the screen about a foot tall and secure it with springs to the lid and base. Easily removed and stored, and meets the campgrounds criteria.
Done.
