Just bought one and have only used it two Days. Great for sites that don't allow wood fires. Also great in the morning before it Warms up. It did seem to use a lot of propane though. A one gallon tank lasted about three hours.

I don't have that particular one, but Herk (Thanks again Lou) gave me the heads up on the one he uses, and I bought one too. It works great. You might can look at it for comparison purposes. It does store away easily.

I'm not sure any of them really put out a lot of heat, compared to a real campfire. I use Little Red more for the ambiance factor of just have a campfire than for cooking or heat purposes.

Bought one from Costco last year. We have fire bans every summer and this is a saving grace. We did get a 30 # bottle as it can be a fuel hog. We try to only use it on low.
We even used it in our screen room on low. Marshmallows in the rain anyone. Just bought a second one from Woodys rv, they matched Costco's price

We bought one last winter and have used it quite a bit. It puts out enough heat to feel it while sitting around. The flames are high enough to give that camp fire atmosphere. It does use the propane if set on high all the time. A 5 gallon tank lasts us the weekend with fuel left over. No smoke, easy to light. We like it alot. No substitute for a real camp fire, but alot better then no fire at all.
