Fall Fun with Solo Stove

This post is in partnership with Solo Stove.  All opinions stated in this post are my own.

Solo Stove Outdoor Fire Pit
If you need me this weekend, you'll find me here, sitting by our Solo Stove Bonfire.
It's my new favorite thing to do!

We've had an outdoor fire pit for years and it's been nice, but after sitting by it for
awhile you and your clothes begin to smell like a fire pit and no one likes that!

Solo Stove fire pits produce a hotter fire and less smoke than traditional outdoor fire pits.
Holes on the bottom and inside of the fire pit create a unique airflow system.  Rising hot
air pulls air through the bottom vent holes. The air movement fuels the fire at its base,
while also providing a boost of preheated air through the vent holes at the top of the burn
chamber.  Vent holes near the top of the burn chamber allow preheated oxygen to fuel the
flame creating a hotter fire with less smoke. The cooking ring on top of the Solo Stove
directs heat up towards the center, while also working as a windscreen.

You'll still see smoke coming from the fire, especially when you first light it and while
small twigs first start to burn, but there is definitely less smoke than a regular camp fire
or standard fire pit.

The cooking ring and stand fit nicely inside the body of the stove, which is great for
storage and for transporting the stove to camping sites, tailgates and over to a friends
house! It's made from 360 stainless steel, so it's super durable and it weighs about 20
pounds, so it's a little heavy, but I'm able to handle it by myself no problem. They also
offer the Ranger, which is smaller than the Bonfire and the Yukon, which is larger

Each Solo Stove comes with a black, nylon carrying case for easy transport and they
offer an all-weather cover if you want to leave your Bonfire outside.

I store ours in the garage, so it's easy to grab and go.

One of the best parts of the Solo Stove is that is doesn't require any type of special fuel,
just dry twigs to get it started and then logs to keep it going. The company recommends
using dry hard woods such as birch, maple, hickory and oak for optimum efficiency.

We have a bunch of trees in our yard, so we gather small sticks and twigs that have fallen
from the trees to get our fire going. Then we add logs from our wood pile to fuel the fire.

The Bonfire is extremely hot when in use, so use common sense and supervise children
and pets when they are around the fire. Our pets love to be outside with us so we
watch them carefully.

We've been using our Solo Stove Bonfire for about 3 weeks now and it's SO cozy!
It's been a fun excuse to get together with friends, which we should definitely do more
often! It's been so nice to relax, roast s'mores and catch up on each other's lives while
sitting outside by the fire.
