Camp cooking is typically done over a camping stove or right over an open campfire. But we get it, sometimes you want to ditch the stove and have that delicious smoky taste emanating off your tongue. However, especially with this recent destructive wildfire season in the west, campfires aren’t always advised and often are banned from certain campgrounds and parks.
Luckily, there’s an alternative to good ol’ campfire cooking, and that’s using a portable fire pit. Portable fire pits are great options for leave no trace campers. The Kamoto OpenFire Pit can be used with wood or charcoal, to get that dense smoky taste that we crave while camping. This portable fire pit can easily be thrown in the car with the rest of the camping gear. You can also unfold it with ease and have a fire burning for your upcoming camp supper in no time.
