We use the the larger version of the Fire Bowl and really love i. Plenty of heat and no smoke.

Ultraclassic, that is a beautiful sunset shot. BTW, Outland should pay some of us for steering so many customers their way! Or at least send us a free carry bag....get the carry bag, it is so worth it.

Thanks for all the input and advice. This has been a great thread with lots of information on the various pits and their use. Ordered an Outland 870 and an additional 12 foot hose with quick connections. The 870 came with a lid and carry bag. Should have it in a few days and will let you know how we like it.

You will like it, and you can always build a traditional fire too, but I don't think so.

But then I changed to a 12 or 15 ft hose to a quick connect to the trailer BBQ fitting and now I don't need to lug a extra tank. I also purchased a quick connect Y fitting so I don't need to un plug the BBQ to run the firepit. Oh and I keep the original hose on board ( 1 wrench needed) to convert back if needed to go farther away ( not needed yet)
Oh and the other benefit is you can have the fire ON your carpet/ plastic Mat ( disclaimer) at least mine I can 😁

Iím hopefully going to enjoy it. It was so windy and rainy this past week on Lake Michigan that we never got a fire built. Left two wheelbarrows of nice cherry and oak for the next guy.

Based on this thread, I ordered the Outland Cypress before our recent trip to WV. There was a fire ban, so after calling the WV forestry division to confirm it could be used, I ordered it. It was a huge hit with the wife and our travel companions. Flame was very realistic and heat output was wonderful. Flame started out blue on the second night but turned yellow as it warmed up.

One thing I'd note, though. The wife wanted s'mores, so I pulled out the pie cooker so she could make them without dripping it in the firepit. The pie cooker ended up covered with black soot from the fire, and the pie cooker had rust spots all over it the next day, which I had to fix when I got home.

My assumption is the fuel/air mixture is tweaked to get the yellow flame, resulting in a sootier fire than pure blue flame would be. So, long story long...I wouldn't cook over it.

BTW, burned it for about 8 hours total on low and didn't use a full 20 lbs tank.

Our Outland 870 and additional 12í quick connect hose arrived today. Set it up on the deck in between rain drops. Works great and we canít wait for better weather to enjoy it. Disappointed that there was not a carry/storage bag but a carry strap instead. Oh well. Thanks for everyoneís help.

get the bag. I shopped all over online looking for a cheaper storage/carry solution (even drum cases). Best bang for the buck is the bag Outland sells. Keeps dust and crap from lava rocks all contained. I have to keep it in the living area of the trailer on the road, as I have no storage bays large enough to fit it.

IchLiebeBier, it's fine for toasting marshmallows, mine never get sooty. I just put the marshmallows on double prong skewers so they are less likely to slide off and make a mess. Success so far. We don't have any little kids staring at marshmallows as they become a drippy flaming mess and doing nothing to mitigate the inevitable!

I've never noticed soot on my Fire Dancer, but a yellow flame from a gas appliance means it is not burning in the most efficient mode for heat. They are all about yellow flame, so not surprised there may be some soot. Still nothing like the soot from a wood fire.

Just be prepared that during a fire ban, you'll get several people stop by and give you a friendly reminder that open flames aren't allowed

We haven't noticed any soot from the flame, but we do get dust from the lava rocks in the bottom of the bag.

We have an outland. Got it from amazon. What we love about it is during the cold winter months it allows us to go outside for a change. Last winter we didnít have it. It is so easy to turn on and get instant heat. I have a spare 30lb propane tank we use it for. When we run low on propane in trailer, we swap it out with our firepit tank. We love it. Makes it easy to have friends over when cold and we are not cooped up in our trailer all the time. Having a 11lb tank would be nice, but i already got a spare 30lb tank. Skipping that expense

Saw a guy with one of these turned up pretty high under his awning. Thinking of getting one and wondered if they create enough heat to be a problem under there.
