Portable Propane Fire Pits
Portable fire pits are perfect for those who love to camp but don’t like the mess and hassle of building a wood fire. Portable fire pits are easy to store and transport so they can be taken anywhere from the backyard, the campground, or to a remote boondocking location.
These portable fire pits are powered by propane, which is perfect when roasting marshmallows.

How portable gas fire pits work
Portable fire pits require a gas canister to fuel the flame. Some RVs have a quick-connect hookup which allows the fire pit to run on the RV’s propane tanks. The portable fire pit is connected to the propane tank by a hose.
What features should I look for in a portable propane fire pit?
There are a variety of portable fire pits, which provide different levels of heat and flame. They are rated by BTU (British Thermal Units). The higher the BTU the more warmth they put out. The tradeoff is you’ll also use more propane at higher BTUs.
Some portable fire pits must be used with a lighter while others have built-in ignition.
Many have lids that lock into place to keep them from spilling in transit.
Some also come with carrying cases. In many cases, you can purchase a carrying case separately if your model didn’t come with one.
Do propane fire pits provide warm?
Fire pits put out enough heat to stay cozy warm on a chilly evening. Whether you’re in the backyard or the campground, it’ll definitely keep you warmer. You’ll find yourselves huddled around the fire pit with a cup of coffee or hot cocoa on those chilly camp mornings too.
No matter where you are or what season, you’ll love the warmth your fire pit provides. Can we talk about those s’mores?
