I love camping and it is the best thing. Here is my issue.. I am so allergic to the fire smoke ...I just can't do it any more! The wood..so much work.I am going to move into a campfire ring that is LPG. Does any one have any info on this? Any feed back? Well I am finding some things
but I all want you to do is chime in and educate me...I want to clean up my outings. Burning wood does not go with my new way of camping...it is just old school...sure if you had to burn wood ....OK!! But clean burning fuels does it make any sence?,,, why not use it?? It certanly has me looking in a new direction...damb I am getting cranky...I just want to turn on the gas....hit the ring with a long lighter and the show is on....you go and the cold ones are flowing.....now we can have campfire tales..that quick!!

Yes, clean burning fuels make sense.
If you're so allergic to camp fire smoke what about the campers near your site? Their smoke will probably drift your way.
If a gas fire works for you, go for it.

Just as gas log fireplaces are not the same as wood burning, neither is a gas campfire. If you must have a fire, and allergic to smoke, then go with gas.

With the cost of fire wood, propane can be cheaper.

But as someone else said...what do you do about the neighbor's campfire?

Didn't the EPA just reverse itself and claim that natural gas/propane are very dirty fuels? Maybe next week it will be different.
I move into my camper, not the firepit. Lots more comfortable.

Years ago we bought CAMPFIRE IN A CAN. Works out well for our own fire -- uses propane. We bring an extra 20lb can with us and use it all year (fill once per year). It's like a gas fireplace. You adjust the flame. Can even roast marshmellows or hotdogs. Looks like the price is a LOT higher than it was 8 years ago.

As far as neighbors smoke, yes, we sometimes just have to go in. I, too, used to like campfire but anymore I literally go into asthma mode and can't breathe. We've camped at places that have no campfire policies for various reasons, but do allow campfire in can.

Link below. Check it out.

I agree, I have a campfire in a can and no issues at all. The only thing that bothers others is the sound of the propane burning. I don't hear it so I don't care. I recommend as well.

I enjoy campfire smoke. Especially my own. If you boondock then you can avoid other folks campfires. Cheers

I have one for when there are fire bans and I like it for then, but its not even remotly close to having a real wood fire. plus the hiss of the regulator gets old fast. in your situation if there is an alergy involved then its your best options, but be carefull of what you buy, some are better than others. I would recomend this one. I am on my third in 20 years and this is my favorite so far.

If you decide to use the LPG port on your RV, remember that it's a low pressure connection. That means your fire pit can not have a pressure regulator on it, it just needs a control valve!
I also just got a fire pit rated mat to place underneath it not to burn the grass or anything else it sits on. I'll test it on my next camping trip this summer.
