More my style
Reminds me of The Terminator.
I’d also rather have logs than the lava rocks, but these are fine and can be replaced if they get too nasty. I chose this one because I got a steal on it in the Bargain Cave in Cabela’s. Otherwise I had had my eye on the Little Red Campfire.
Nope. Just like a gas grill, there is no taste at all, which is a plus and a minus since you don’t get that smoky flavor from wood or charcoal.
Thanks. That was my thoughts but I was worried about the amount of flame compared to a grill.
something like those might, Walmart has several sets that are cheaper than those. Need to do some measurements.
make your own firestarters! i have made 8 egg carton & cedar shanings forthe price of one box
great winter project.
One reason you mentioned seeking an alternative to hauling in your truck is to avoid having to unload when you get home. This concerns me a little because of the potential for firewood to carry infestations such as carpenter ants and termites. The last thing you would want is to step into your pup and have your foot go through the floor because it's been eaten by pests during the off season.
In my case I haven't yet come across a "pay" campground, whether it be state or national parks, or commercial, where I'm permitted to bring my own firewood. So I've gotten out of the habit of doing so, and just bring along some cash.
If you're camping places where it is permissible to bring your own, it makes sense that you would need a transport solution for it. But a solution that encourages you to leave it within crawling or close flying distance of the pup could someday cause some maintenance grief.
My home's supply of firewood is stored as far from the house as I can without endangering my wooden fence.
That's a good point I hadn't considered. I wound up going with the milk crate solution in the bed of the pickup as someone else proposed. There just wasn't a good option on the popup.
Here in Iowa you can haul your own wood into and out of the county parks and state parks as long as it's within the state which is usually where I camp, so I'm following the rules.
I haul fire wood in a clam shell cargo carrier on the roof of the TV.
I purchased some of those Ceramic Fireplace Logs for my Portable Campfire. I'm going camping this weekend and I'll take some pictures.
Fake log for a fake campfire? It'll probably be a fake picture!
I'M JUST KIDDING! PLEASE DON'T KICK ME OFF OF THE PORTAL!!!
How 'bout just some give me some demerit points and put me on double secret probation.
Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor?
If ya'll are having problems with your fire lighting, you can always do what I've taken to doing. Saturate a couple paper towels with vegetable oil and crumple them up in some news paper. The oil burns a long time and doesn't have any chemical binders in it.
Burlap bags. And we haul them on our roof rack basket.
