Camp Chef Fire Pit

There’s nothing like having a campfire when you’re out camping. It makes a great conversation starter and keeps you happy outdoors in cooler weather. The problem with a campfire is that it requires a lot of preparation and work, and everybody smells like smoke the next morning. That’s why I have switched over to a propane-powered fire pit. It provides a nice amount of heat, and there’s no wood to chop and no ashes or coals left behind. Best of all, there’s no smoke to dodge!

Propane campfires produce no sparks, so you can usually use them even when there are fire restrictions or burn bans in place. You can even toast marshmallows and make smores! he only downside is that most pits are big and take up a lot of space when stored.

I have a small RV, and storage space is always a consideration. That’s why I’m so thrilled with my little Camp Chef Compact Fire Ring. Even though it’s only 15 inches in diameter, it produces a very nice-looking fire and, as the lava rocks heat up, the warmth it produces is impressive! This little pit will run 10 to 12 hours on a 20-lb. grill tank and, when you’re ready to go inside, just turn it off.

When it’s cooled down, fold the legs in and place it in the included carry bag. It stows flat in a space as small as 16″x16″x6″.

The pit comes with a standard grill-tank-type regulator with a long hose and a sturdy zippered carry bag. An optional low-pressure hose with quick disconnect is available as an accessory for folks who already have a low-pressure propane quick connector on their RV.
