I'm curious if any of you have give up camp fires. At least the ones that burn wood. There are several portable fire rings that use propane, but I'm wondering if anyone is using other alternatives.

Where I camp 99% of the time, deadfall is abundant so I burn it. I keep a section of 55 gallon drum hanging in the woods near my campsite that I use for a fire ring and I cook the majority of our meals on the wood fire anyway, plus a woof fire keeps the bugs at bay....

keep in mind, campfire smoke also pisses off all your neighbor campers who elect not to have a fire. some times its not that the neighbors don't want to have a fire, there may be health reason. example is my wife, smoke causes allergies to kick in, and when she is miserable, I am miserable.

and we have found bug repellent works better on repelling bugs than wood smoke.

Usually I don't have other 'campers' around, unless you mean deer, bears, yotes, porcupines, groundhogs, racoons and squirrels and they don't seem to mind at all.

If we stay in a campground (seldom) we respect the rules of that campground and usually don't stay but overnight anyway.

Having a crackling wood fire is part of the 'camping experience' anyway in my view.

Next thing will be a 'faux' campfire with plaster logs and a light bulb shining on red foil..... sheesh.
