    Quick enough. Like, once you start to pack up camp, turn off the fire and break down the hose/etc. Let the box sit while you pack up kitchen etc. Once you're done with the kitchen it should be cool enough to handle. And if not, it's an ammo can - dunk it in the river.

    Finally decided to get one of these. My partner has asthma and hates normal campfires.

    What's the consensus? Cheapest one you can find on sale? Any brand better than others?

    Is the ammo can setup worth it? This will mostly live in our sienna camper so compact is nice.

    Thanks!

    We have a cheap outbound propane campfire that does what itís designed for. Just about time to replace the lava rocks. If you are out for a few nights, think about a larger propane tank than a 20lbs.

    Any opportunity to test your wifeís asthma with a solo stove? It might burn clean enough once it gets going. They would be better if you want heat as the propane rings are 80% ambience unless in a very sheltered location.

    I just went cheapest I could find, it's not tiny but not as big as some (camp chef compact size). Works great.

    Really kills the bugs on river trips with fire bans. That is all I can say from experience. The ammo can ones are kinda easy to make, but worth it for the plug and play no brainer engineering and to support some cool builders.

    I ended up purchasing the big ammo can version from lavabox. Itís impressive and functional for groups of all sizes. Altho it goes thru the Dino juice extremely quicklyÖ.I now have a dedicated 35lb tank to run it. Pretty happy w it overall.

    I have been trying to convince my neighbor to get a solo stove with the hopes that we could test it out but so far no luck. I'm definitely curious about them. Even a hint of smoke smell is pretty upsetting to her though since it reminds her of not being able to breathe...

    Tradeoffs for the propane stove of not getting soot all over the car and more flexibility with fire bans (we are in California) might be worth the lower heat output. I guess in an ideal world we'd have a solo and a propane one...

    Sounds like the ammo cans are working out well for people and I'm happy to throw a little extra cash at those folks, may end up going that route.

    The only thing Iíve found with the propane fire pit is it uses a lot of propane.
    We usually have 3 bottles on our trailer, but I was still surprised at how quickly it went through it.
