A quick bag could be made for them out of heat resistant fabric. I'd still cool them before storing, but it would keep them together and keep the ash out of the trailer.

That looks like what I have in my smoker grill. They sell them everywhere or most people just make their own. I'm I missing something here?

If these cool off as fast as a stainless steel washer tub (NOG firepit!), they'll be completely cool in about 30 seconds after the fire is dumped out.

I'd still make the bag out of fire retardant material - just in case there's a stray ember. Just being anal :-)

The logs are cool in 30 seconds except the hinges they stay hot a little longer. Another good thing about Repose wood pellet fire logs is they are much safer if there are young children around because there is not a big bed of hot coals .

Many campgrounds made extra money from selling firewood think some are not going to too happy seeing this, also my wife loves the smell for poplar burning. Two thumbs up for this new campers invention

I decided to give them a try. Figured I may as well make smoke like the rest of the people in the campground, and get some roasted marshmallows out of the deal.

I see some places on the web that sell specialty woods in pellet form... such as apple or hickory.

I've got a bundle of firewood purchased at a Forest Service campground in 2011. It's traveled back to the interior twice, and returned to my carport. Still sitting there, awaiting fulfillment.

I like the idea of these. They'd take up a lot less room than a load of wood, and no worry about moving invasive bugs where they shouldn't go. I don't have the interest or materials to make them myself, either.

And here is the perfect companion to the Repose Fire Log: The Chimney Chair Live Demo #2 - YouTube
Only thing missing is an oxygen mask for the people testing it out.

I purchased 4 of the largest fire logs and I can tell you they are a quality product. I will be using them in our fireplace at home.

Good idea, Darwin- and one that I hope the Repose folks have jumped on, marketing-wise.

Many pellet stoves are fed/exhausted by electric mechanisms of some kind, rendering them unusable during power outages. Folks with regular fireplaces might want to buy Reposes for just such emergencies...

Francesca, You might want to think about a Battery/Inverter backup for the pellet stove. Look to see how many amps the motor draws and see if an dc to ac thing would be feasible.
