We have rain and spotty fire hazards while staying by the AC during hot spells although another reason for a Go-Sun-Go-Ultra-Portable-Solar-Cooker.

I believe that if open fires are banned that means all are banned. (Things like butane and liquid fuel stoves are still allowed.) The concern is sparks/embers. If not, you can build one.

It depends on the jurisdiction. No open fires usually includes things like the wood gas, Zipp and biolight stoves but a lot of places will allow a wood fired stove to be used out side of designated campsites in places that require that all "campfires" be in officially designated fire rings. And then some places require a separate "fire permit" that may or may not note the difference between a stove and a fire ring.

Out here we've been spoiled by the DNR allowing us to camp freely along our river bottoms sand bars for over 36 years. School parties, family cookouts, boating, fishing, hunting, snowmobiling, X-C skiing and cycling good times. The moral; Peace, love, sisters, brothers & joy.

Another idea that caught my attention for cycling weekend river party campouts.

Got some WMT Fast Orange w/pumice and tried KC8QVO method after rinsing the Dawn dish soap off and towel dried then applied a generous coat of FO & set aside for 60 minutes to absorb. Wet my fingers and easily rubbed most of the soot right off then rinsed. Repeated for the stubborn bottom. Easily cleaned with a little elbow grease & rag. Thank you VERY MUCH for the EASY method KC8QVO.

Say Steve I didn't see any orange tints but coated it with Dawn dish soap, dried and put it back in my black duffel bag dedicated to kitchen duty. Thanks again.

I think alcohol stoves and Stermo type stoves also come under open fire bans in most western states. Open fire bans essentually include any gas stove without an on/off valve.

Complete list from US Forest Service site:

Non-approved Fires

  • Campfires that utilize wood, pressed logs, wood pellets, paper, cardboard, or other solid fuels.
  • Campfires utilizing solid fuel that do not distribute the flame with a wick.
  • Briquette fires.
  • Unapproved fires on a summer home or residence porch or in an uncontained structure.
  • Unapproved fires in a tent, open garage or carport, fenced area, shelter, porch or other nonstructural surrounding.
  • “Tikki torches” which utilize liquid fuel.
  • Alcohol ultralight stoves (these tend to be homemade from aluminum or tin cans and burn rubbing alcohol)
  • Wood “twig” ultralight stoves
  • Campfires, lanterns, or stoves that use non-pressurized liquid gas or fuel.
  • Liquid fuel citronella lanterns or liquid fuel candles.
  • Solid fuel candles which are not contained within a metal container or glass container.
  • Liquid fuel stove or lantern fires which utilize a wick to distribute the flame.
  • Solid fuel fireworks of any kind.
  • Wood, solid fuel or non-pressurized gas campfires contained by a rock barrier.
  • Wood, solid fuel or non-pressurized gas campfires contained in an open camp stove, container, or barrel.
  • Wood, solid fuel or non-pressurized gas campfires contained in a closed camp stove, not in a fully contained residence or summer home.

60min may be a bit on the long side - by that time a lot of it may have dried. Glad it worked for ya. I've done that several times and it has helped me. I usually have some fast orange in a small (2oz or so) Nalgene bottle in the pack when I am backpacking - its great for getting pine sap and soot off your hands in camp also.

My campfire experience is mostly camping and canoeing in maine. From recollection the issue was kindling a fire outside of designated campsites with aproved fire pits. A fire ban is a separate issue. Again from recollection of talking to a ranger/warden, it would be acceptable to build a fire on a metal garbage can lid. If it's wet enough that open fires are ok doesn't mean a campfire won't start a root fire that could start a fire days later.

I've always wanted one of the Littlbug folding hobo stoves. The have a folding fire pan to go undernieth to protect the ground. The big stove an pan are geting to a couple pounds so it's a bit of weight and lot more money than a cofee can with holes punched around the bottom.
