Ammo cans are surprisingly versatile containers. Most of us own several of them, whether they’re filled with loose ammo, loaded magazines, a vehicle tool kit, or even a radio base station. But we recently found a product that uses the venerable ammo can design in a way we had never considered: as a propane-fueled fire pit. The Ignik FireCan is a collapsible, packable unit that allows you to bring 38,000 BTU of heat output wherever you need it, without the prep time or increased wildfire risk of an open campfire.
The Ignik FireCan features mesh sides, folding legs, and a removable lid that stays cool so you can carry the unit safely once the fire goes out. Fire rocks can be placed inside the can for added heat retention.
Each FireCan includes a 5-foot quick-release propane hose with an adjustable regulator, so you don’t have to worry about threading on a connector that might leak. Although you can use any propane source, it’s optimized for use with another Ignik product, the Gas Growler:
The company says one fill of the refillable Gas Growler costs about as much as a single-use green propane bottle, but it lasts five times as long. It includes a protective case with hose and wrench storage and exterior PALS webbing for attachment of MOLLE-compatible accessories or tie-down straps.
The FireCan and Gas Growler combo looks like a great way to bring heat and light to various outdoor events, from tailgating to camping trips. We also hear that a new variant of the FireCan, the FireCan Deluxe, will be displayed at SHOT Show next month. It includes additions such as dual burners and a removable cooking grate. We’re hoping to get our hands on one for a review in the future, so keep an eye out for that.
In the meantime, you can learn more about the FireCan and Gas Growler at Ignik.com.
