A wood-burning smokeless fire pit: Hands-on REVIEW

•, Mike Wendland

We found one that is perfect for boondockers and off the grid campers who want the warmth and ambiance of a campfire but without the hassle.

Its called the Pyroad.

The Pyroad is marketed as "the world's most portable fire pit."

That, I don't know about.

And while it indeed is portable, super easy to set up and take down and carry with you in the RV, that was not the main reason the Pyroad caught our attention.

But before I go any further, maybe it's best to direct your attention to the video we did on our experience with the Pyroad. We show the unboxing, the assembly, the starting of a fire and the clean-up and storage.

After you watch that, come back and read the rest of this post for the details.

Is the Pyroad really a smokeless fire pit?

The claim that it is smokeless was what most interested us.

Jennifer and I have always had a love/hate relationship with campfires.

We love open flames. We like burning wood and having real coals to warm us and to cook with.

But we hate the smoke that comes from most of the other portable fire pits we've seen and considered for our RV.
