Lookin forward to camping this summer and got to thinkin about being able to have fires at our beach camp. I think that the rule reads something like "no open fires" are allowed. Have any of you ran across a portable fire pit, or something simular that get you around that rule? And then you have to consider whether or not you want to put the thing in your boat after it's been used. :eek3:

I am not sure if this (http://www.dickssportinggoods.com/product/index.jsp?productId=2146822&cp=&pg=2&origkw=fire&kw=fire&parentPage=search&searchId=5592021870) would be legal for you or not.

In many places, a "warming fire" is legal, and you don't need a permit for it.

I don't know of any fire pits that I would want in/on/near my boat after or before being used.

ERK, that's what heavyduty aluminum foil and big heavyduty garbage bags are for, put inside a couple and your all set, line bottom with foil, then when cold, take it out of grill, wrap it up after putting water on it and grill is clean for next time.

Around here there are burn bans in the summer due to the fire hazard. The only way around it is if there is food being cooked. So we have to have marshmellows &/or hot dogs around the fire so the marshall doesn't come down on us.
Serious. We've had the police or fire dept walk up, ready to put it out, and then see the marshmellows sitting there & it just takes all the gas out of their flame.

So how about something like this? (http://cgi.ebay.com/FIRE-DANCER-Gas-Fireplace-Fire-pit-FirePit-Tail-Gating_W0QQitemZ4456412915QQcategoryZ85916QQrdZ1QQ cmdZViewItem)

Hey AirJunky
Looks like your in eastern Washington. We're planning on boat/beach camping in late June over at Roosevelt. do you think your marshmallow trick would work over there?
