For those times when you can't burn wood and want to keep the ground clean - best part smoke free

Do you think this is more for looks or do you think you'd actually get good heat out of it? It doesn't seem like it'd be very effective w/o blasting through a tank of propane every few hours.

I recently was camping in the backcountry at the North Rim of the Grand Canyon. I discovered that no fires that made sparks were permitted, I asked the Ranger about Propane cooking and a BBQ and was told it was ok. I had read this thread and saw a unit similar to the one shown by DesertDude for sale at Sportsman's Warehouse. The cost was a lot more but I needed it in a hurry. It was easy to set up and it put out a fair amount of heat, it was pretty easy on propane. It was used mostly for the effect of a campfire where none could be had, even the Ranger who came by to check out the campsite was impressed. I guess what I wanted to say is that this item is a good idea for any location that you cannot have a fire that produces sparks.

A vendor was selling them in Moab a couple years back, I was truly surprised by the amount of heat they put off. Nothing beets the social aspect of a campfire... without the smell :cool:
The only pic I have from the vendor show:

I totally agree, no mess and no danger of setting the world on fire and you still have a warm and inviting camp fire.

My folks installed one in a tee pee they had a few years back. At about 7000' elevation it would put out more heat than was comfortable in that space (it was a large Teepee) even at the lowest setting.
