More About Me



Do you cringe every time your kids ask to have a bonfire night? I used to! But not anymore…with my new firepit from SoloStove, bonfires are EASY! The best part–we don’t smell like smoke when we’re done! That, to me, is the biggest win! Along with that awesome feature, is the fact that it’s easy to make and keep a fire going in a SoloStove firepit! AND right now SoloStove is having their Fall Sale!! Such a great time to buy a SoloStove.

SoloStove has designed the firepit in such a way that a fire is easy to build and maintain. Cool air flowing through the bottom vent holes, fuels the fire at the base as the air rises up through the flames. If you want the technicalities of it, there it is! I just know, I love that you’re not constantly having to stoke the fire and get it roaring again.


An easy fire isn’t it’s only convenience feature….Weighing in at 20 pounds, the SoloStove Bonfire is easy to move from your deck to your patio or vice versa, you’re not limited on where you can hang out around the fire. (If placing on the deck, it is recommended to use a stand)….

If you’re wanting more of a stationary unit, the Yukon is what you need. This bad boy is solid and weighs 45 pounds. Great for a large gathering of people. But to be honest, the Bonfire is truly the perfect size. We have a family of 7 and can gather all of us and then some around our Solo Stove Bonfire. So, if the cost of the Yukon is holding you back, the Bonfire is just as good.

If you’re space demands something really small or you want the convenience of packing it up for camping, the Ranger is just the right size and weighs only 15 pounds.

And as if making a fire with your SoloStove isn’t easy enough? I found the coolest product for any firepit! Pull Start Fire is the easiest and fastest way to start a fire. Not to mention, one that continues to burn and is pretty much maintenance free! How does it work? You simply pull the string…
