Portable Propane Fire Pits

Do you have to do anything special to the pumice stones before using a new fire pit?

Yes, 3 things are necessary - perhaps even 4: Graham crackers, chocolate and marshmallows. The fourth is KIDS! Love making S'mores over my propane campfire.

Enjoy yourself!

Some campgrounds prohibit wood fire during fire season. Other RV parks do not allow wood burning fire pits or fire rings. With a propane campfire you do not have to buy wood or haul wood to enjoy a fire.

I carry my Campfire in a Can in the storage bay of our motor home. I can enjoy an evening with the wife and friends around a fire. YMMV

We have a Frontier Campfire. Most realistic look we've found. Has fireplace logs, and came with a support ring and cooking wok. People stop and check because it looks so real. Not the cheapest, now made of stainless, but we love ours. Added fireplace glass around edge for added bling!😜👍🏻

I have one of these from Lowes
https://www.lowes.com/pd/Garden-Trea...e-Pit/50037272

It works great Lid twists on so you can carry it.
I took off the Gas Regulator and had 1/4 nipples crimped on at the hydraulic hose shop, Then put quick connect fittings on so I can tap into my LP tank on the coach. I had a 10' jumper hose made so I have even more hose to move it around without a LP bottle in the way.

I purchased the same unit. Love it!

I added logs to some of the stones and have had rangers come over to complain about my fire as it looks so real.

Great price for a large fireplace.

We use our propane fire a lot during cool evening Happy Hours. Also have cooked brats over the flames. But they do consume considerable propane. The manufacturer claims up to 11 hours on a 20 lb tank. I tend to get a bit more since I usually keep the flame low. I find the cost is less than what we use to spend on campground wood bundles and many parks no longer offer fireplaces. On Vancouver island fires are banned most of the Summer but these propane fireplaces are allowed. Nice to be able to turn it off and go to bed without worry.

Because of the high propane consumption I decided to use a dedicated 20 lb tank for the fire pit rather than connect it to the motorhome tank, it's much easier to take the small tank for a refill.
