LavaBox Shark Tank Update: Where Are They Now?

As per the US Forest Service, Nine out of 10 fires are caused by humans. A slight mistake in setting a campfire can cause 100s of deaths. For the same reason, there are fire restrictions in most campsites across the US. However, all outdoorsy people would know that without smores, a camp doesn’t feel like a camp. Entrepreneur Josh Thurmond attempted to tackle the issue of the dangers of campfires by inventing the product “LavaBox,” which would contain the fire and be a perfect fit for campers. He introduced the product on ABC’s ‘Shark Tank‘ season 14, episode 18. With such an interesting product on display, we got intrigued to learn more about Josh and his company, so here is what we found out!

LavaBox: Who Are They and What Do They Do?

During the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020, Colorado set fire bans forbidding campers from setting up any campfires due to extremely dry conditions. Due to the restrictions, camper Joshua Thurmond was not pleased and wanted to build something which would tackle the situation and help in a safer way to make fire at a campsite. One day the entrepreneur had his lightbulb moment and created his “flamethrower in a box,” which he made by using propane as lead inside an ammo box and adding some ceramic rocks.

LavaBox is a portable solution for all campers to experience camping in a hassle-free way that reduces the fear of setting forest fires. The product is designed to run off propane, which becomes easily accessible. While using it, you don’t have to go through the whole process of gathering wood or dealing with ashes and smoke. Each model is compatible with a standard 3/8 flare, and you can easily set up the entire thing with ease.

Can Box, Burt Tank, Hose, and Regulator are the three primary components utilized to construct this product. If any form of cooking needs to be done, Hades stones can be utilized as an extra resource.
