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.

I'm not sure it's that clear how to be greener. It's not just about smoke.

Paraffin and propane are both petroleum. Hence, when burned they put carbon in the air that has been permanently sequestered deep in the ground. Unless we bring it to the surface, it will never return to the atmosphere. Burning wood puts carbon in the air that was only taken out of the air a few years ago, relatively speaking. Wood, especially if burned clean, seems to be far 'greener' than anything petroleum.

Perhaps we should be looking at high efficiency wood burners instead.
