It might be burned propane (or really the result of burning the odourant which is added to propane for safety), but it might be unburned propane - the firepits probably don't burn as consistently and completely as a furnace.

That could be, as I have used propane heaters, the tubular blast kind, and they really have little smell to them. Most likely they are more efficient heaters.

I have a propane fire ring for fishing trips when we get in late and want to get up early, it's convenient to have instant fire, and instant off when you crash an hour later. I too smell the gas, but just for the first few minutes. Either one gets used to it or it goes away when it heats up. You do get better flame once it heats up.

It certainly does not rate up there with a good dry wood fire when you have the time. Never tried a rocket fuel fire so I don't know how they rate.

Dare I ask? Does anybody have a recipe for cooking poutine on a reuseble log?
