Little red campfire. With the optional warming stand, adds a spot to keep something hot. Great to take the morning dew off the sun shade so we don't have to pack it away wet. No worries about putting out a campfire at night and starting one in a wet ring the next day.

And best of all, no asthma attacks or breathing issues from the smoke.

Little red campfire here too. Takes little space, easy to set, easy to use, no smoke. But no coals, so s’mores are hard to make with out burning. Kids don’t seem to mind. A round here they don’t like you to transport fire wood, and ground fires are usually forbidden, so you have to bring something anyhow.

I haven’t run mine more than an hour or so at a time, so haven’t really noticed the gas use

They do go fast on the disposable canisters as they don't fully use the remaining gas. We would save them and use inside the tent to dry them out. Most places don't like you to throw them out at camp grounds so we switched to the refillable 1 pound tank, just connect to the main tank and top it off in the afternoon so it is good for the evening and next morning.

Mine connects only to a bulk tank, maybe that's why I don't really notice.

the "FLAME DANCER" firepit that E-trailer sells is probably one of the most fuel efficient one's being sold out there!! I did not buy mine for that reason - bought mine for it storage size being it is about 12/13 inches in diameter and fits inside a 14 inch Camp Chef DO bag for carrying. I had never used mine much for the first couple years I had it, but later all of the others I am camping with were complaining about how the firepit they had used so much fuel - than they all were telling me how I needed to get rid of the one I had and get the Flame Dancer brand one being it is the one that used hardly any fuel - ALREADY HAD IT !!! And YES it is very fuel efficient. I have gone over 3 nites (2 to 3 hours a nite) on my 2.5 gallon tank that I carry.
