    Anyone have any experience with this firepit? It is an ammo can with all the paint stripped off, repainted with high heat paint, then fitted with propane fittings to make a portable firepit.

    Only 12"L x 6"W x 8.5"T. Portable. Considering it with more and more fire restrictions and that it is compact. But have not found any first hand reviews of it.

    i sourced the parts to make one...added up quickly & some things were not available at the time due to supply chain thing.
    i bought the lavabox for $175 & waited 4 or 5 months to get it. ignik also makes a version with folding legs.
    it does well & likes being fed by larger tanks...larger than the 1#...i bought an 11# as the unit goes thru the gas...
    def adds cheer to the camp site during bans.

    I ended up buying the Ignik one over the holiday weekend it was 25% off everywhere and it seemed to be the best made and it wasn't a flame thrower like some others I have seen. I ordered thru REI need to go pick it up. I got the 5 pound canister.

    Perfect for the fire bans and easier than collecting or bringing firewood or buying it locally for $10 a bundle.

    I've got the Lavabox and I like it. Still, man's relationship to a crackling WOOD campfire goes back tens of millennia. There is something about quietly staring into the spectrum of color a burning campfire and bed of hot coals produces. Listening to the crackle, poking the fire with a stick. My Lavabox cannot duplicate that. Nor can it cook a ribeye as good as a bed of red oak coals. When time and regs allow, I'm still going with a campfire.
