We keep a case of fire logs in our camper. Just right for an evening fire before bed.
Doesn't take up much room and not like hauling a bunch of wood.
I always preferred a conventional bonfire, but I hate paying $5.00 for 3-4 pieces of wood and I stiill have to make kindling.
A 1/4 of one of these logs makes a great fire starter too :-)

X2. A campfire without the fuss and worry of embers, and like Hammer pointed out, it's generally OK to use in a State or Federal campground if there is a ban on campfires in effect, because there are no embers getting loose and you just turn it off when you're done; no coals to douse or worry about. Should note however, the instructions state the Campfire In A Can should NOT be used for cooking. That aside, we love ours, use it when camping and at home on the pool deck on those "cold" winter nights in Florida! :hihi:

I wonder how quick it goes through the LP for an average size flame. I like the idea expecially with the weight (and mess) it will save over all the firewood we typically carry.

To clarify I like a wood fire. The wife likes the idea of the real fire, but not the smoke and hassle. My main concern is that it actually puts out some heat. The plus I see is that I have a 3, 5 and a 7 year old with attention spans of fractions of a milisecond. This thing would allow us to turn it on and off quickly and not worry about not giving a real fire proper attention and care. Plus if fir erestrictions are in place this would be a cool alternative. I can see a use for it at home too. With a cul-de-sac full of kids, we could have a pretty quick improtu smores fest.

We have the Little Red Campfire.
It was given to us by our friends as a gift. We only us it in areas where there is a fire ban. It puts out a lot of heat, but can be controlled.

There are many makes of Portable Campfires.

I have a Campfire in a Can. It is great when there is a wood burn ban. Puts out a fair amount of heat.

If the can is red it is a Little Red Campfire. Similar product to Campfire in a Can, but less btu heat output. It is less expensive than Campfire in a Can.

There are other differences between the products, only you can decide what is most important.

Also, you can cook with a Campfire in a Can. It comes with a cooking grate. But, I doubt I would ever cook with it.
