If this weekend’s cold snap wasn’t enough to get you in the mood for a roaring fire, we don’t know what it’s going to take.
Perhaps the promise of a sleek new fire pit will seal the deal.
And Solo Stove’s every bit as fabulous as you’ve likely heard.
We’d been hanging out with our friends in their backyard with a Yukon a couple of weeks ago (along with a bottle of single malt and a few bottles of wine) while our dogs ran around like crazy and we chatted over the flickering flames. It was easily one of the least smoky experiences we’ve ever had sitting by an outdoor fire and that’s the main reason we typically don’t like fire pits.
So when the good folks at Solo Stove asked if we wanted to test one out in our own backyard, we immediately said, “Yaaasss, please!” (I mean, we are super-gay.)
The Solo Stove fire pits come in three sizes (increasing in sive and heat output, naturally): Ranger, Bonfire and Yukon. When given a choice, we’re always going to opt for the biggest one, so we quickly set up the Yukon when it arrived on our doorstep and the timing couldn’t have been better for our first below-freezing night in Dallas of the season.
Solo Stove’s Signature 360º Airflow Design makes the whole “less smoke” thing possible while putting out a ton of heat. So much so that most logs burn all the way down to ash for quick and simple cleanup.
A bevy of accessories makes this one helluva versatile firepit, too. We’re already making our wish list for things to start adding to our collection. We already ordered a shelter to protect it from the weather, but we’re also really intrigued by the cooking accessories, including cooktops and roasting sticks for the most Insta-worthy s’mores session you can possibly imagine.
So if you’re in the market for a firepit with a whole lot of fashion sense, check out the lineup from Solo Stove. After all, if we have another winter like this last one, we might need a guaranteed way to keep warm—even if it’s outside.
We just need to make sure we get a lot of wood.
