Camping is supposed to be about relaxing and enjoying the great outdoors, not spending your time chopping up logs just so you can keep a fire burning. So if you can spare a can of propane, you can now just bring a portable campfire with you — or at least a close facsimile thereof.
At $US120, Camco’s Big Red Campfire is definitely more expensive than scrounging for free fire fuel in the woods, but many campsites don’t actually allow that anymore to help preserve nature — making this the next best thing. A set of faux logs that will never burn away help sell the campfire effect too, while a ten-foot hose lets you keep the propane tank hidden away while toasting marshmallows.
It’s even claimed to be safe for use in dry areas with a high risk of bushfires, since it doesn’t shoot embers in all directions — but maybe it’s a good idea to satiate your s’mores cravings elsewhere, just to be safe. [Camco via The Gadgeteer]
