No outdoor product in the market is perfect. Each product usually comes with its benefits and drawbacks. It is one of the reasons behind the technological dynamics.

The purpose of this guide was to give an honest review of the Solo Stove Yukon firepit. We had to go the extra mile to dig deeper into the product to find out some shortcomings.

Some of the crucial drawbacks include:

❌Consumes a Lot of Firewood

Solo StoveYukon firepit is known for generating a lot of heat. This is only possible if the firepit is fueled by a lot of firewood.

It implies that the outdoor firepit is not energy saving. You are likely to spend more on purchasing the firewood than saving on the general costs.

❌Quite Expensive

The Solo StoveYukon firepit is one of the most expensive products from the stove store. But the performance of the firepit has no close relationship with the price.

We recommend getting a portable firepit that is worth the value of your money. Keep in mind that the cost of the product and fuel is likely to drain your bank account.

❌Large and Heavy

The massive size of the Solo Stove Yukon fire pit is too much to be regarded as the best portable fire pit in the market. The firepit weighs about 27 pounds, which is too much for an outdoor trip.

If the bulkiness and weight of the Solo StoveYukon is putting you off, then maybe you would like to read about the Solo StoveBonfire, which is the Yukon’s smaller sibling, much more portable and weighs almost 20 pounds less.

In Conclusion

If you are looking to generate more heat and produce large flames, then the Solo Stove Yukon Firepit is a great option. Besides that, it is a great alternative to the Solo Stove Bonfire or Ranger Firepits.

The performance of the Yukon outdoor firepit is worth the value of your money. Keep in mind that exceptional performance comes at a heavy price in terms of the amount of fuel it burns, but on the flip side to that, a bigger fire means more heat, more fun, and more people you can entertain and keep cozy and warm into the wee hours.

We hope this in-depth Solo Stove Yukon Firepit Review will help you make an informed decision before making any purchase.

  1. What a great site! I live in Canada and, sometimes, we go camping in the woods. The fall and winter is very cold here! Never thought to buy a portable firepit.  But I love the idea. What I like the most is that this firepit is that it reduces the smoke. if it can reduce being saturated by smoke even a little I will buy one, for sure. Thanks

    1. Hey friend. Thanks for the comment. Yeah, it’s a great feature the reduced smoke but it does not eliminate it altogether obviously but does a grand job of really reducing it. I have reviewed a few different firepit/camping stoves over the years and this one is up there with the best. The Solo Stove Yukon is a fantastic bit of kit and worth the cost.  

  2. This is a quality review you have laid out here on the Yukon firepit. I actually have just bought one and was looking for the review I found before I bought it. This is it I’m sure. I am sending this review to my friend to read as he is thinking about buying one as well.

    I have not had it going as yet but its out of the box and ready to go. Man is it a stunning piece of kit. Kind of don’t want to fire it up as it looks too shiny and brand new LOL.

    Delivery was spot on, packaging excellent, and I’m over the moon with it. Very happy customer. Thanks

    1. Hey Aug, thanks for your comment. Get that bad boy lit and get back to me on how you enjoyed it. FYI – It keeps that shiny look for ages. Just don’t leave it out in all elements uncovered. Take care of it and it will serve you well for years to come.

  3. Hi Martin, thanks so much for the specs and info on this fire pit. My husband and I have been searching for one for our patio but there’s just so much to consider and many options out there. I love the size and quality of this model. Our patio isn’t huge so it seems like it could be a great fit for us. This is one we’ll have to consider, definitely, so thanks for the recommendation. 

  4. I have been looking a bit around for a portable stove to carry with me while trekking. I have fallen for the Biostove 2 because of the size and weight of it, and it helps that it is very efficient regarding “fuel”.

    But I see the difference with the two. The Solo Stove Yukon Firepit is great for use outside your cabin when you want to have some quality time together with family and/or friends. Then you have the possibility to forage for wood to fuel your stove and have plenty of it available at all times.

    I like the design and that effectively burns all the wood and not leaving much behind. 

    It is a product that I will look a bit more into. I could be an alternative for my cabin to use when friends are visiting. Do you know if they sell the product outside of the US?


    1. Hi Roy. As far as I know, it’s USA only for now, but who knows if it will change post covid.

  5. Thank you, GoGoMountain, for this warm and inviting site. You have presented a variety of information that will interest the many who enjoy camping and who want a resource for the best-camping sites, accessories, and equipment. An interesting variety of fire pits and related accessories and mountain bikes. I like that you have included a chat feature, as well. Nice imagery and advertising add great appeal.
