There’s nothing more synonymous with camping than a campfire. Whether you’re using it to cook or to warm you up on a cool evening, a perfect fire helps set the entire tone for the trip. While you’ll find a perfectly suitable fire ring in most park campsites, that’s not always true with others—in fact, they often don’t allow wood fires at all. That’s why portable fire pits, which are powered with propane, make such perfect options. Not only are they lightweight and easy to pack, portable propane-powered firepits mean you don’t have to go on the hunt for expensive fire, go through the trouble of getting a fire going, and inevitably burn through all of your wood much faster than you anticipated. They’re perfect for warmth and don’t leave you smelling like smoke for days on end afterward. Of course, if you’re allowed to burn firewood and don’t mind a little smoke, there are still plenty of portable fire pits that are perfect for keeping small fires contained—and they’re perfect for cooking in and over, while some go as far to include grates. Even if you’re not camping, they’re still great for tailgating, as are tall, standalone patio heaters. Everyone will gather around your tailgate both for warmth and the delicious food you’ll cook on an open fire.
