The Amazing Campfire In A Can at last a 2-in-1 campfire!

$124,763

Whether you’re in your backyard, at the campground, or anywhere in between, The Amazing Campfire In A Can is the easiest, most convenient way to enjoy a campfire! Featuring a compact, self contained design that makes it simple to transport and store, Campfire In A Can is also the world’s first portable multi fuel campfire! Capable of burning wood, charcoal, or propane (using the optional propane kit), Campfire In A Can’s versatility and performance is unmatched by any other portable campfire on the market.

Everything Is In The Can

We’ve designed the Campfire In A Can to house everything right inside the canister. No more hunting around for little parts and pieces...just grab it and go! It’s as simple as that. Our design makes it easy to keep everything together and makes storage, whether on the road or at home, a snap.

Multiple Fuel Options

Having the option to burn wood, charcoal, or propane (using the optional propane kit) gives the Campfire In A Can an incredible level of versatility. Is your campsite’s fire pit in a bad spot? No problem! Set up the Campfire In A Can wherever you want and enjoy a crackling wood fire! Feel like grilling up some hot dogs at the beach? Add some charcoal, snap on the cooking grill and fire away! Sudden fire bans are no longer an issue either. Just pop in the optional propane kit and, while everyone else sits in the dark, you’ll be the envy of the campground as you enjoy a blazing propane fire!

Take It Anywhere!

Many campsites and beaches have restrictions on open, uncontained fires and require you to use raised fire pits. Well, Campfire In A Can solves that too! Our design is actually classified as a contained fire. Plus, if you use the supplied stand to elevate it off the ground, you’ll also be in compliance with the raised fire pits only rule. We thought of everything!

Extinguishing The Fire Is A Snap

The unique canister and base design allows a wood fire to be quickly and safely extinguished. Simply place the canister over top of the base and snap it down to seal the embers off from oxygen. No air = no fire. Your fire is out, no smoke or debris can blow around, and the remains are safely contained inside the canister until you’re ready to dispose of them. Extinguishing a propane fire is even easier. Just turn it off and the fire goes out instantly. Once cool, your Campfire In A Can is easily stored, leaving no trace of a fire behind.

Let's Get Cooking

Anyone can be a campsite chef with the Campfire In A Can! No matter what fuel you’re using, it’s easy to go from campfire to cooking and back again. The supplied cooking grill is easy to clean and is sturdy enough to handle a Dutch oven or a heavy skillet. Start your day off with some bacon and eggs, grill some burgers or shish kebobs, or fry up the catch of the day...nothing beats campfire cooking in the great outdoors.

Here’s where science meets style. The unique shape, size, and design of the Campfire In A Can allows all the elements needed for a great fire to come together in perfect balance.

Heat Distribution / Fire Visibility

We designed Campfire In A Can to burn solid fuel in an upright position. This way, heat from the fire transfers to the burner walls more efficiently. This allows heat to radiate out towards you more effectively. In addition, direct heat from the fire flows out through the air intake holes along the sides of the burner. This design projects a lot of heat from the sides to keep everyone around the fire nice and warm. It also produces a large, hot flame pattern at the top of the burner.

Fuel Positioning

An upright fuel position actually increases the amount of surface area that catches fire. This is the most efficient way to burn wood as it maximizes the amount of heat put out by the fire. In a traditional campfire where logs are placed horizontally, you end up with large pieces of charcoal and sections of wood that don’t burn fully. Our design burns the wood completely, leaving nothing behind but ash.

Draft / Airflow

As hot air rises away from a campfire, fresh air is drawn in from below to aid in combustion. The trick to a great fire is accelerating the outflow of hot air while maximizing the inflow of fresh combustive air around the fuel. Sound confusing? Don’t worry. Our burner design accomplishes this balance perfectly. All you have to worry about is not burning the marshmallows.

The propane kit is optional but we highly recommend adding it! With it, you can easily convert between wood and propane, giving you an added level of convenience no other portable fire can offer. It’s incredibly easy to insert the propane kit. It takes less than a minute to set up and you don’t even need tools! We’ve designed it to simulate the randomness of a wood fire. You might not get the crackle and woodsy smell but you’ll still get a nice tall flame!

Our propane kit features an adjustable shut off valve that gives you easy control of your desired fire size all the way up to 60,000 BTU’s! You have to admit, that’s pretty warm. As an added bonus, we include a package of lava rock as a fire feature. Adding this into the burner when you’re using the propane kit disperses the gas and gives the flame a realistic, flickering effect that is fire ban approved, allowing you to enjoy a fire anytime, anywhere.

Shipping

We’re offering flat rate shipping in Canada and the USA (lower 48 states) for our Kickstarter backers. Unfortunately we’re unable to do this for those in Alaska, Hawaii, or abroad. International backers will be responsible for shipping costs as well as any additional tariffs and customs fees. Please contact us to get shipping rates to your country.

US orders will ship from Washington State and Canadian orders will ship out from British Columbia so there won’t be any additional customs charges.

Free Local Pickup! Do you live in Surrey or Kelowna, BC or Blaine, WA? We would be happy to arrange for you to pick up your Campfire In A Can and save the shipping costs!

A lot of work has gone into making Campfire In A Can. Countless hours were spent drawing, building, and thoroughly testing prototypes, then refining it again and again until we got it just right. Once we agreed on the best design to move forward with, we confirmed tooling and manufacturing costs and applied for patents. We’re ready to go right into production. 

The biggest hurdle left is spreading the word. There are millions of people out there who love the Great Outdoors but still don’t know about Campfire In A Can. With your help and support we can hit our funding goal and get the word out about the ultimate portable campfire! 

We are a family owned business that has built a reputation for products that are well designed and made to last. And, thanks to our 100% Happy Camper Guarantee, Campfire In A Can is also known for the outstanding service we provide to our customers. As a Kickstarter backer, you’ll receive that same guarantee.

100% Happy Camper Guarantee

Your Campfire In A Can is protected by our 100% Happy Camper Guarantee and supported by our legendary service. We’re confident you’ll be ecstatic with the performance and durability of your Campfire In A Can portable campfire but if you’re not satisfied for any reason, let us know. We’ll do everything we can to make it right. If you’re not happy, we’re not happy!

Risks and challenges

Altogether, we see the risk factor for this project as very low. This isn’t our first time bringing a new product to the marketplace. We currently manufacture a high quality propane campfire and are familiar with the work required to take a product from design to reality.

Quality is very important to us. That’s why we’ll be using the same manufacturing and tooling partners as we have in the past. Our prototypes have been thoroughly fire tested, necessary design changes have already been made, and manufacturing costs are established. We’re ready to go, right down to the last detail.

We are confident that any hiccups that may come about can be easily handled as we’ve been through this process many times before.
