While I still enjoy an evening campfire, I've seen enough fire close-up that I'll pass on any "special effects".

That said, when I was a boy, and used to camp in the Adirondacks with my parents, there was a factory nearby that made the hardwood handles for hand saws. My Dad would go there ther first day in-camp, and they would FILL the back of the pick-up with little hardwood scraps, for $5. Of course, that was back in the '60's and '70's.... We would build hardwood fires with coalbeds so hot that we would melt glass. The "adults" (in age only, not behavior) would toss their empty beer cans in the fire, and they would slag right into the pit.....
