Portability You Can Rely On

Sometimes a camping fire pit is marketed as a portable pit merely because you could pack it up, store it and set it up again somewhere else. But some of these units are heavy and difficult to handle. They may have loose, fragile parts that are easy to break in transit (and often costly to replace). Some of them are even a pain to get ignited again at the campsite, meaning you are not likely to even consider bringing them along.

Not the Campfire in a Can.

This unit is exactly what you think of in terms of portability. All of the components fit together well to allow for easy transport. It’s lightweight and compact enough to fit in the trunk of your car (and still leave plenty of room for all of the other gear). The log set is one piece, meaning there are no loose logs that tend to rub together, crack or break. And the innovative stand slides right into an aluminum canister that works perfectly as a cover (for portability) or an impromptu stand to keep the flames a bit higher. Even the handle for this sturdy cover will fold away.

Beat the Ban

Have you ever unloaded at a campground, ready for a delicious meal of your favorite camp food cooked over the flames, only to find out that a campfire ban is in place? All of your vacation dreams float away on the wind. But with the Gas Can unit there are no worries.  Tested to CSA standards, this camping fire pit can be used in almost any location where campfire bans reign supreme.

Simply hook it up to a portable propane tank (or use the RV coupler to hook it easily into your existing propane system) and the flames are ready to go. Cook dinner and snacks or just gaze at the flames. The log set and burner deliver superior views and a truly realistic setting. Beware – you may never go back to wood burning campfires again!

And this unit comes equipped with a removable cooking grate, placing those hot dogs or fresh fish just above the flames. Wash it up easily afterward and marvel at how simple it is to pack everything away at the end of the trip. Can’t bring in firewood because of a pest problem? Don’t want to pay the exorbitant prices for firewood on the campground? Bring along the CIAC (Campfire In A Can) and you won’t need to fret over a thing, just enjoy the camping atmosphere along with the convenience of this intelligent and inclusive unit.

Power Packed

Many portable camping fire pits use propane to fuel the flames. But how many of those come equipped with the power to pump out 64,000 BTUs? With the fully adjustable control valve you can have high heat for those hamburgers and lower, more subtle flames for the all night ghost stories. However you like it and for whatever reason, the Gas Can gives you the features and function to make the perfect campfire – all without the mess and stink of smoke or the hassle and expense of firewood.
