This summer, many campers are using an easy way to get their fire going: a propane-powered fire bowl! Propane gas fire bowls ignite easily and don’t create dangerous embers, ashes or smoke. Bring one with you on your next camping trip and the task of collecting firewood and then keeping it dry has all been left behind.
A lightweight fire bowl—matched with a portable propane tank of course—is easy to pack up with the rest of your essential camping gear. Besides providing ambiance and warmth, certain models can also be used to grill your food as well.
You can also take advantage of propane’s mobility by bringing along a propane heater to keep you cozy when temperatures drop at night. Just be sure you use a model that’s been approved for camping use. Many propane camping heaters come equipped with an automatic-shut-off switch if the unit is tipped over or carbon monoxide is detected. A propane camp stove or grill is another essential for your next camping trip.
For those non-campers who prefer to keep the home fires burning instead, you’ll enjoy a propane fire bowl as well. It’s safe to use on decks and at pool-side. A large one can be used as a centerpiece for your yard, or you can set up a series of small ones around the pool or at the entry of your home to wow your party guests. Many models have ignition systems that can be turned on and off with a smartphone or tablet.
No other fuel can do as much as propane to make the great outdoors so much fun!
