AFFILIATE LINK DISCLOSURE: Friends, making a quality Loloho video is kind of like making sausage โ€“ only slightly more violent. It’s a ridiculous amount of work that typically involves high dollar camera drops, blue-screen-of-death computer crashes, and at least one angry shotgun wielding old man shouting, โ€œHey! Get the hell outta here!โ€ Once the final video is posted, rewards here on YouTube are few and far between (unless you are a masochist who enjoys being verbally abused by anonymous trolls). One saving grace is our affiliate links. JUST CLICKING THESE LINKS HELPS TO SUPPORT OUR LITTLE SHOW. Think of this clicking as like tipping – except that it doesn’t cost you anything extra! If you eventually make a purchase via one of our affiliate links, we will receive a few pennies (and Sean typically invests these pennies in duct tape and video gear). Again, it doesn’t cost you anything to click these links, and it’s a great help to us. As always, safe travels, happy camping, and THANK YOU!

    How is the heat? Do you only feel heat from the top or do you feel heat from the sides too? Like a real camp fire.

  2. Bela Sziklassy on April 11, 2020 at 2:16 pm

    We had a giant rickety above ground pool deck on our property. I’d have had to rent a dumpster for $250 to get rid of it.

    Or… I could buy one of these and have campfires damn near every day from around to fall.

    We chose the latter. It’s been great fun.

  3. jw '46 on April 11, 2020 at 2:17 pm

    Not going to spend $300 for a fire pit anytime soon.

  4. Dj Mando Live Chicago on April 11, 2020 at 2:18 pm

    hello there. have you tried using lava rock or fire pit glass to keep fire going ?

  5. William Lane on April 11, 2020 at 2:19 pm

    My parents used an inner tub from a washing machine for years…..pretty much the same thing, and free

  6. Kevin Martinez on April 11, 2020 at 2:19 pm

    Thumbnail looks like โ€œitโ€™s mamโ€ dude

  7. rammur1 on April 11, 2020 at 2:20 pm

    I have the solo stove , Campfire, and love it !

  8. bcgrittner on April 11, 2020 at 2:22 pm

    Great item. Probably will look into it. Thanks for sharing.

  9. Shelly Smith on April 11, 2020 at 2:23 pm

    I’ve gotta stop watching these videos. Got ours a couple days ago. ๐Ÿ™‚

  10. Mary Field on April 11, 2020 at 2:23 pm

    I want it to Travel with it and also for my second story deck. I have a small solo stove for hiking and just love it. I like burning wood pellets so Iโ€™m going to set up this one with a screen and do the same thing. I just went to Home Depot and got a hot water
    Heater pan to put under it and maybe Iโ€™ll get another one for the top when I have to put it out. Anyway thanks for the great video it helped getting my husband to agree to let me order it. Happy camping !

  11. Tim List on April 11, 2020 at 2:23 pm

    I love the national forest sign at the end of the video.

  12. Chief on April 11, 2020 at 2:24 pm

    Hi Sean, great review as always. Just curious, does the airflow aid in a complete burn so it would be cool enough to transport the next day? Seems like a really neat design.

  13. DENMONKEY on April 11, 2020 at 2:27 pm

    Who the heel is carrying that big Bastard around? Hell no

  14. Crazy Canuck on April 11, 2020 at 2:27 pm

    I used to use an old car rim and a steel drum from a washing machine, with all of the holes in it we used to have great fires and we’d put a gill on top and BBQ on it, this Solo Stove sort of reminds me of the washing machine tub .

  15. John McLean on April 11, 2020 at 2:29 pm

    Seems to me that the heat would just go straight up rather than radiating laterally to people sitting around it.

  16. Jimmy Lew & Andy Too on April 11, 2020 at 2:30 pm

    "If you really wanna have some fun … " M80s … LOL hilarious!!!

  17. Scott Mckenna on April 11, 2020 at 2:31 pm

    I can attest to this product being amazing. Probably the best purchase Iโ€™ve made. I get a lot of questions about this at my campsite from other campers .

  18. Alfred Silver on April 11, 2020 at 2:33 pm

    Little bit of olive oil on a paper towel and this incinerator is pretty much zero fail every time. If you get the logs underneath the top it double burns way better.

  19. Mike Fitch on April 11, 2020 at 2:39 pm

    You don’t know how to make a fire from scratch, do you?

  20. Whatever this is on April 11, 2020 at 2:39 pm

    The little ones are amazing for multi day hiking trips. Don’t have to carry fuel on dry days.

  21. Mark DeKoster on April 11, 2020 at 2:40 pm

    Iโ€™ve been looking at these fire pits as the state parks we often stay in require a contained fire. Thanks for the overview. BTW I noticed some lighting mods made to the Airstream, do you give details on doing that anywhere?

  22. Charles Baltezore on April 11, 2020 at 2:40 pm

    We bought the bonfire based on your video and recommendation. We have been using it for a month now and it is awesome.
    Thanks again for recommending great products.

  23. Jack Chivvis on April 11, 2020 at 2:41 pm

    too big, too heavy, too expensive, doesn’t put out radiant heat. buy an $8 galvanized oil drain pan @ the hardware store and set it on 3 rocks.

  24. Kimberly Cooley on April 11, 2020 at 2:43 pm

    Can any one tell me what kind of fuel my solo stove uses its the little one that says backpack camp ,survive on the bag

  25. Doan Nguyen on April 11, 2020 at 2:43 pm

    Burns hot and more efficient with air flow from bottom but won’t that eventually burn up your wood fuel fast? I would think there might be some way to control the air intake from the bottom. I have a woodstove and it’s great for controlling your burn rate.

  26. William Wiseman on April 11, 2020 at 2:48 pm

    Yeah but what do you do for a living to afford all this crazy expensive stuff??

  27. Jack Luge Jr on April 11, 2020 at 2:49 pm

    Made in the USA too!

  28. Robert Burnette on April 11, 2020 at 2:50 pm

    It would be interesting to get a long-term review of this. I am concerned with how well it holds up especially with rust, etc. IMO, $300 is a bit pricey for a fire pit.

  29. Riverflyswatter S on April 11, 2020 at 2:53 pm

    when you heat stainless steel it can rust. High temperatures change the molecular structure. Just spay some lemon pledge on it and wipe it down from time to time. The storage bag is perfect and will help keep It from rusting
    Love your videos

  30. ewafnfgaweiawe on April 11, 2020 at 2:53 pm

    This f’ing music is depressing. Shitty hip hop track.

  31. Zachary Rodman on April 11, 2020 at 2:54 pm

    It will smoke less if you keep the burning wood below the top of the stove.

  32. T echs on April 11, 2020 at 2:56 pm

    4:45 I think all fire pits are a great place to store your โ€œmethโ€.

  33. outbackeddie on April 11, 2020 at 2:57 pm

    Nice review. I just found out earlier today that my local REI has started carrying them. They are sold out right now but I will be first in line to get one when the new inventory come in.

  34. Paul Cowan on April 11, 2020 at 2:57 pm

    Great video can certainly see that the fire pit is well-made. Love to see a follow up video on the cleanup process. But certainly purchase one after watching this. Thanks again

  35. Ronald Rose on April 11, 2020 at 2:58 pm

    Hello my outdoors friends, thank you for sharing this fine video. I have the small version of the Solo stove, really enjoy it. All the very of good things for you folks. ๐Ÿค—

  36. Gyan Gearon on April 11, 2020 at 2:58 pm

    That’s impressive, for as simple as it is. My family just bought the "Little Red Fire Pit". It’s a propane fire pit that connects to a standard 5gal propane thank. We have only used it once so far, but it was awesome. Instant on, instant off. No waiting for the logs to die down, as you get colder, and then have to wet it down. It’s small, but gives off a surprisingly good heat, a couple feet from it. No more smoke, or sparks flying around burning your chairs, jackets, or landing in the pine needles. Lately in AZ, there have been a few trips with no fires aloud, except propane type stoves and fire pits.

  37. Mark Witkop on April 11, 2020 at 2:59 pm

    That reminds me of the wash machine basket in our back yard.(The basket with holes to let the water out while it spins) It works the same, wood in, light, get roasted. Free at a junk yard, or appliance repair store. Just an alternate idea.

  38. Patrick London on April 11, 2020 at 3:00 pm

    Gracias Amigo, great information.

  39. Tom Vernon on April 11, 2020 at 3:02 pm

    I have one. The same size love it. In the morning all I do to clean up is dump it out. The fire is real warm. It is advertised as smokeless. As you notest .

  40. Ricky Burton on April 11, 2020 at 3:02 pm

    Thatโ€™s really cool ๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ

  41. Alex kruysman on April 11, 2020 at 3:02 pm

    This thing looks great I would love one for a camp or a home. I feel the problem with brining it on the road is that if a camp doesn’t have fire pits it is an intentional move to prevent fires, and they would probably have rules against fires. It would be awesome for boondocking though.

  42. Leanne Mo on April 11, 2020 at 3:04 pm

    Their new "Yukon" is even bigger (HUGE, really), so it’s more cumbersome for portability.ย 
    In this video, it would’ve been nice to get a good shot of the inside of the "Bonfire" before you filled it up with wood. ๐Ÿ™‚

  43. Grumpyagain on April 11, 2020 at 3:04 pm

    Ever notice how at the camp site that the pit take all your paper and kindling and still won’t burn, but some idiot throws a cigarette out the window in a rain storm and the whole woods go up.

  44. Jack McGonegal on April 11, 2020 at 3:07 pm

    Okay, you talked me into it, plus the 19" Bonfire is on sale today at their site for $95 off.

  45. TomDoesUtube on April 11, 2020 at 3:07 pm

    Thank You! ,,,Sweet video.

  46. lindaoffshore on April 11, 2020 at 3:07 pm

    Good evening, itโ€™s cocktail hour here in Cape Charles VA on the Eastern Shore. We have a wonderful toy hauler on order. Just ordered the Solo fire pit thru your store on Amazon! We enjoy watching your videos.

  47. TURKEYNATION on April 11, 2020 at 3:14 pm

    Go to junk yard get a single dually wheel like the front rim or half the rear it’s the perfect fire pit rusty but trusty $20 bucks

  48. Warren Wang on April 11, 2020 at 3:14 pm

    Yoga ๐Ÿ”ฅ, yoga flame! Haha ๐Ÿคฃ

  49. machfive916 on April 11, 2020 at 3:14 pm

    That was an impressive & efficient campfire.

  50. Mike Barker on April 11, 2020 at 3:15 pm

    The manufacturer claims that the TWO WALL construction with the holes at the bottom and top of the wall forces/allows cold air to be warmed prior to being used for combution. Ergo, they say, the fire burns hotter and that (not the ring) minimizes smoke output. If this is true, then single walled pits cannot be comparable.
