I have one at home that I use in the backyard. I have used a smaller one on a river during a fire ban.

Propane stoves are allowed during the fire ban, anything that doesn't produce a flying spark and can be turned off with a switch is allowed.

A buddy (same one with the hostage boat at CWI :rolleyes:) has a Camp Chef portable propane fire bowl that looks very similar to that one. It is a very good facsimile of an actual fire when you can't have one otherwise, but questionable legality (only supposed to use "stoves" on most rivers when a fire ban is in effect), is kind of big and bulky, and burns through a lot of gas. My personal favorite is to use the flame damper in the Woodland Power Stove. I carry a little bag of cinder rocks (they are light and very plentiful around here) to pile up on the grate and it makes a reasonable fake fire to sit around. While not as good as the Camp Chef, it is a lot easier to pack and serves the purpose of being our camp blaster for making lots of hot water. I think they are about the same price as your link, but I've heard some talk on here that they are getting harder to find?

It's harder to find for the lower price, but the normal price of $150 can still be bought from places like NRS. I am totally sold on the Woodland Stove and you just gave me an idea for the fireplace, thanks 90Duck!

You are welcome. Maybe I should start a side business selling little bags of cinder rocks direct from the volcanic source in Central Oregon!

I actually have those lava rocks from High-Side's link, I can just use those rocks and make a small grid to put on top.
Thanks for THAT idea Alex - it is always a bit of a challenge to arrange the cinders so they don't fall through the pot supports on the Woodland. I have a little fire grate I could throw on top and solve that "problem". Wonder why that never occurred to me.

Love the Buzz for this kind of stuff.

Does anyone have experience with the Outland Fire Bowl 820 Portable Propane Fire Pit??

http://www.amazon.com/Outland-Fire-...Firebowl+Deluxe+820+Portable+Propane+Fire+Pit

They claim that they can be used during most fire ban restrictions. Any feedback would be appreciated.
A friend of mine who's a beekeeper makes these "camp candles". She has a free source of wax, but you could still do it from wax you buy. Anyway, they are a giant candle in a coffee can, using cotton rope for a wick. We just sit it in a firepan and it throws good light, with a flame about 3-4 " high. It's all we use on hot summer trips, even with no fire ban, cuz it gives you light without heat.

Tha Woodand ceramic logs are sweet. They have a small hole that lets the flame travel up though the logs. They're pretty small and light and fit perfectly on the grate. I like to use the setup when we're cooking on the firepan as a backup fire.

And has anyone been able to get an accessory from woodland recently?

During fire ban not packing my giant ridiculously heavy fire pan allows me to carry 60 pounds more of beer which when consumed I dont even realize or care I dont have a fire lol

My experience is that open flame means a no-go during fire bans. My guess is these types of devices would not be allowed in those times.
