Isn't driving around in and 7mpg vehicle instead of a hybrid and tent or hotels the very definition of wasteful?

What you see as 'wasteful' another doesn't. As long as they aren't burning it on your site, why concern yourself about it?

Unattended fires are a different matter altogether, of course.

Agreed! Staring at a campfire makes me look more intelligent than gazing blankly into space. Sometimes my taters are cooking and if I if bury a pig or goat and slow cook it all day, I am a popular guy when I ring the dinner bell. But if the smoke bothers someone, they're free to eat elsewhere. What's funny about that is years ago, I lived in the South Valley in ABQ. Folks did that in their backyard and some still do today. Darn city slickers.

Cliff that is the kind of fire-pit I carry. I also carry a carton of those 2hr fabricated logs to side-step the multi-state firewood movement ban. I build a fire and 2 hrs later it is burned-out before I go indoors. Our 5yr old grandson likes to toast marshmallows too.
The fabricated logs work well for me, since I have severe chronic asthma.

I hit that pit with a hose as soon as he was done as we went to the game room ( love his visits ) and wouldn't leave it burning unattended.

There are only two reasons for leaving a burning fire ignorance or indifference.
As Forest Gump would say "Stupid is as stupid does"

That ain't ignorant, that's stupid!!

Just a note. Those manufactured fire logs like Duraflame are not intended for cooking
Quote:
No. Duraflame fire logs are not designed nor intended for use as a cooking fuel. Generally, the types of solid fuel used for cooking produce coals, which emanate heat over a period of time, and cooking is conducted by exposing the food directly to the heat generated by the coals. Our regular fire logs only burn with flames and do not generate adequate coals for cooking. For roasting food over a cozy fire, try duraflame Campfire Roasting Logs instead.

I generally don't concern myself with it but I still don't care for it. We all share this rock and the materials on it. If someone has a reasonable case for a fire, no problem here but you know that isn't always the situation. Having campfires the way some have campfires would be akin to me running that 7 mpg vehicle for hours on end with no particular reason other than to hear it run. Conservation has to start somewhere.

If you REALLY don't like it, get one of these, put a 4x6 vent from Home Depot and put the unit outside with a 4 inch hose through a dryer vent to the inside of your camper. That will put the whole camper under positive pressure and HEPA filter the air coming in.

Just saying.

A bit extreme, but it would work if you really need it. I have one at home that runs 24/7 and it really removes dust and odors for the whole house. I hooked it up the way mentioned above when I did some drywall repairs, put up a visqueen barrier and you couldn't tell drywall was being worked on in the rest of the house

Correct!
I would not risk feeding anyone I cared about anything cooked, roasted or heated over a manufactured fire log fire.... unless the lable specifically stated it was "safe" to do so, (and maybe not even then).

OP was not complaining, remember, just asking for help. We probably lost him quite a way back.

As for "Deal with it stop complaining!!!!", I agree. There are many ways to do that and it's up to the individual to figure out what suits him/her.

Cheers!
