The Bonfire is the middle-sized fire pit from Solo Stove and it’s a great option for a small group of people to sit around.
The Bonfire features a dual wall design that provides air space between the two walls for a smokeless burn. It’s also much easier to start a fire with the Bonfire than with a traditional wood-burning fire pit.
When burned in wood, the solo stove bonfire produces a very hot fire that will keep you warm for hours. This is because the bonfire has a double-wall construction that maximizes airflow, causing the wood to burn more efficiently and produce less smoke.
Top of Inner Metal Tube
This hyper-efficient airflow is achieved by a system of holes at the bottom of the outer metal tube and also at the top of the inner metal tube, allowing oxygen to feed into the logs below. Then, as the flames grow, a burst of preheated oxygen feeds up through the top holes in the dual walls and creates a secondary combustion that keeps your fire burning clean and efficient.
Another benefit of the hyper-efficient airflow is that it will produce less smoke than a traditional fire pit. The smokeless fire is partially due to the way that Solo Stove’s fire pits are designed, but it also helps to make sure that you use kiln-dried firewood in your Bonfire.
To get the most efficient burn from your Bonfire, you should only fill it with a few good-sized logs. If you fill it with too many, the vent holes in the top of the Bonfire won’t be able to give the air they need to work properly and you’ll have to try to relight the fire more often than you would with smaller logs.
You can also use dry hardwood logs in your solo stove bonfire. These are a great option because they burn longer than softwoods, producing more heat per log and reducing the number of half-burnt logs that you have to deal with.
While the Solo Stove bonfire is a very convenient way to have a fire, it does get quite hot to the touch so you should keep kids and pets away from it while it’s lit. It’s also best to keep it away from flammable materials and other heat-sensitive surfaces.
Solo Stove Bonfire Experience
A few accessories can also help to enhance your Solo Stove bonfire experience, including a spark shield, lid and weatherproof cover. This will help to ensure that you can leave your bonfire outside in the rain and snow without risking damage to it. You can also add a cast iron griddle or wok and a raised stand to make your solo stove bonfire into an outdoor cooking station.
If you want to burn coals with your Solo Stove Bonfire, you’ll need a grate that can hold enough coals for the size of your fire pit. It will also need a lid to keep out rainwater and protect the coals from the sun.
304 Stainless Steel
The grates are made from 304 stainless steel for strength and corrosion resistance, and the lids can be fabricated with a variety of metals to fit your specific fire pit model. The lids are also useful for keeping stray embers from flying out of your Solo Stove, which will reduce the amount of smoke that comes from your fire.
Car Camping or Backyard Barbecues
Another great thing about the Solo Stove Bonfire is that it can be used on grass or other heat-sensitive surfaces, as long as you have a grate to keep the coals in. It’s also lightweight and easy to transport, making it a perfect option for car camping or backyard barbecues.
Compared to other fire pits, the Solo Stove is much less messy and produces far less smoke. That’s because the double-wall design of the fire pit draws air in from both bottom holes and channels it up to the inner top hole where it gets heated and is further fueled by the flames.
This means that you’ll spend less time tending to your fire and more time enjoying it. And since it’s so hot, it will leave behind very little ash to clean up, too.
Most Portable Fire Pits
While the Solo Stove is still a relatively new product, it has already earned a spot among our list of the Best Smokeless Fire Pits of 2022. It is one of the easiest-to-use and most portable fire pits on the market, with a patented removable ash pan that makes cleaning up after a fire easier than ever before.
You can also set up your Solo Stove in a matter of seconds and then add logs to the fire as needed. The ash and charcoal that are produced during the fire will be blown into the outer walls of the Solo Stove, so it’s a good idea to use a hose to flush out all the excess ash and charcoal.
Clean-Burning Fire Pit
The Solo Stove bonfire is a clean-burning firepit that you can use at home or out camping to enjoy the warmth of a wood-burning fire. It’s designed to burn low-smoke and is easy to assemble and clean.
The main thing that sets a Solo Stove firepit apart from other backyard fire pits is its design. Instead of stacking firewood logs and twigs above upper vent holes, like most other stoves, the Solo Stove has an air intake hole on the bottom that channels warm air up between its double walls to generate what they call a “secondary burn.” This allows it to create a super efficient flame that’s mesmerizing to watch and a joy to sit around with friends and family.
Friends & Family
Once your Solo Stove is lit, it’s a good idea to make sure that the flame ring on the rim is turned up so that the preheated air can travel through the upper vent holes and into the top of the fire. This secondary burn will also help to eliminate smoke from the wood, making your Solo Stove fire much less smoky and easier to enjoy with your friends and family.
In addition to the flame ring, you’ll also want to add a grate or pan so that you can cook on your firepit. You can buy a cast iron griddle or wok from Solo Stove, which will convert your Solo Stove Bonfire into an outdoor cooking station.
To keep your Solo Stove Bonfire burning safely, it’s important to place the fire pit on a safe level surface away from any buildings or other combustible objects, at least 6 feet away. Pavement, sand, or dirt are all good options. You can even add a stand to elevate your Solo Stove Bonfire to a safe height so you can use it on other surfaces, such as a wooden deck or grassy area.
To use your Solo Stove Bonfire, fill it with about a half-dozen logs sized up to 16 inches long. If you’re using wood that’s larger than that, you may need to add some fire starter. You can use wood chips and other non-woody material to fuel your Solo Stove Bonfire.
If you’re looking for a great portable fire pit, the Solo Stove Bonfire is a top choice. Its efficient burn means that it uses less fuel than your typical wood-burning fire pit, while also giving you very little smoke.
The Bonfire’s efficiency is aided by the fact that it has a double-walled stainless steel construction and vent holes for improved airflow. This helps to reduce the amount of smoke it produces, as well as providing more heat from each log that is burned.
Sources of Ignition
While the Bonfire can be used in any area, Solo Stove recommends placing it in a space that has at least 2 inches of ill around it, so as to ensure that airflow is effective and that the Bonfire doesn’t overheat. In addition, the Bonfire should be placed away from any other sources of ignition and away from any flammable materials that may cause a hazard for more info visit our Smarts Saving site.
Whether you’re camping or enjoying an evening on your patio, the Solo Stove Bonfire is incredibly easy to set up and use. Once you’ve stacked the firewood in the right places and have it ready to light, just add some dry pine needles or kindling to start it off.
After that, it’s just a matter of adding your larger logs when you feel like you need to refuel the fire. The Solo Stove Bonfire consumes all of the wood you put in it, so it doesn’t leave any half-burnt logs once it’s been used up.
Another great thing about the Solo Stove Bonfire is that it’s forgiving about how much wood you’re able to place in it. As long as you don’t over-fill it with logs and you make sure they’re not too close to the top, you should have no problem getting a good flame and minimal smoke.
It also has a handy ash pan, which is located underneath the base plate and can be removed to allow you to easily clean out the ashes after a use. The ash pan is made from stainless steel and can be cleaned with a simple sweep of a garden hose or by hand.
