    Outdoor Firepit Semi Portable

    Need a new firepit for the back yard. I cant build one of those stone ones cause I'm going to keep it on someone else's property most of the time so I want to be able to move it if I am asked to. my yard is small but property owner behind me has 110 acres.

    Who's got something cool?

    Have one of these but its pretty haggered at this point and i'm using it elsewhere.

    Best part is that you can take it anywhere

    Not sure I need a Bluetooth firepit. The cowboy Cauldron might be a bit much.

    This one is 275 lbs,,,

    A wheelbarrow full of local stone is all anyone really needs for a firepit IMO.
    RV'ers seem to like those solo stoves, but maybe a little too light and portable for your taste?

    I don't know about these artisan free range fire pits, I just make a circle out of some rocks and burn shit. Why you gotta make this complicated?

    Portable, burns really well, and not v smoky at all - check our bonfire from solo stove. Got one for the mrs and we enjoy backyard fires and bring it in the camper too. Is very cool to watch the flames, stoned or not.

    Totally what I was going to recommended. Plasma/lwaterjet cut steel to your custom liking.

    This. Nothing else really occurred to me otherwise.

    But you have to use artisanal rocks. Or if you want to get fancy, a plasma torch and a 55 gal. drum works grrrreaat!

    Cause there ain't no rocks on the playa, mtm. Dudduh.
    I've seen the bottom 2/3s of a 55 gallon drum turned all artist anal with a blowtorch and a welder.

    These work great and you can at least keep that part out of a land fill.

    Also an old waste container made out of expanded metal is worth looking for. Like the one in this picture but it is cut down, consequently the upper part that was cut off fit nicely into a 55 gal drum that had been cut in half and made a nice burn barrel as well.

    If I have them a couple of pallets propped up together and leftover cardboard boxes underneath in my fire ring are my go to fires.

    Went camping with some folks who had a propane firepit during the extreme fire season 2 years ago, the C.O. drove by and then doubled back to check on us and maybe issue a ticket but it was legal

    We picked up one as well during the 2017 season. And used it extensively in 2018. Combined with the 10X10 screen room, we were both skeeter free and warm. But during the fall trips, and this whole season, we enjoyed a proper fire at all the rec sites we stayed at.
    We brought the propane ring to Roots and Blues this summer, but the local fire chief put in a restriction during the event. It was a bit of a bummer pulling sitter duty (we go with another family, and the 3 little princesses are in bed by 9). So the propane ring isn't a failsafe in the municipal campgrounds.

    I have the Bonfire by Solo Stove- pretty portable. Comes with its own carry case.
    https://www.solostove.com/solo-stove...SAAEgLYyfD_BwE

    They make a bigger one, the Yukon, but I doubt that is very portable.

    The Bonfire burns relatively smoke free once you get it rolling- key is to keep the wood below the lip.
    When I am not needing to bring it anywhere, I keep it in the backyard. I plan on building a "fire pit" to keep it in, just some stacked pavers to keep people away form the sides which get pretty hot.

    Bonfire-


    Yukon-
