Portable Campfire

We just got one of these from my DW's cousin, still in the box, never used. I haven't even tried the Cook All yet. Looks like a pretty neat deal. My DW is curious to see how well it works with the Cook All, since she does the cooking. I believe it will be nice to have in a rainstorm or when there is a burn ban in effect. We'll see.

Those look really handy! I like the campfire....I could use it right on my deck or tailgating. I wish they had one called BONFIRE...it gets pretty cold tailgating up here!

Enjoy!

Interesting and convenient! Not sure its what I'd want though, kinda prefer those nice raging fires that make you sit back about 6 feet for fear of melting your Nikes. But for travelling, it would be great.

We have thinking about buying one of those.


I have heard rumors that many parks will allow those during burn bans. I asked our local park and was told we could use that during burn bans.


hmmmm Maybe I should go ahead and do it.

As I understand it, this thing is considered in the same category as a gas grill or gas campstove. If it's raining you just put it under your awning and enjoy. AT 27000 BTUs it might melt a Nike if you got too close. The instructions for the Cook All unit say that when you're finished cooking just throw a cup of water on it and the resulting steam will release all residue so you just wipe it clean. Yeah??!! Ain't nothing that simple for me. But we'll see.

Very nice and I have looked at variations thereof at Camping World. I'm sure I would enjoy having one but it uses up too much cargo room for the long distance travel that I usually do.

Does it have the smell of a wood fire? I too would have a storage problem and propane is $3 a gal now!! Think I will wait and go to the woods and get free firewood.

Maybe it is a little frivolous but I got to spend my kids' inheritance on something. They won't need it. Come to think of it, I may have spent it all on the Campfire.

Around here....
Many campgrounds don't allow that. Even if they did, many State Parks won't allow out or area wood now. Plus, dry year equals no wood fires.
The propane model would solve many of these issues...even tho a wood fire is...well, a wood fire.

i purchased a propane fire pit from walmart for $100. i dont see it listed on their webpage anymore. I dont really have any good pics of it but if u look close at my avatar, it is in the lower left corner of the pic behind the picnic table. this thing is ideal for dry, burnban conditions and its great for a guy who is too darned lazy to gather or purchase campfire wood. it does put off a much bigger fire than i originally expected but it is definately no "bonfire". we LOVE it.
