Reduce the weight on your next portage by taking the Solo Stove Campfire on your next canoe outing. The Solo Stove Campfire burns wood, or any combustible material that you find while on your adventure such as sticks, twigs, pine cones and other biomass. The Solo Stove doesn't just burn wood. It actually cooks the smoke out of the wood and then burns the smoke not once, but twice!
The Solo Stove Campfire is the large-sized stove offered by Solo Stove and is designed for four or more adventurers. For additional space saving the Solo Stove Campfire nests perfectly within the 2 Pot Set (sold separately).
The cooking ring's angled lip also increases efficiency by directing heat towards your pot minimizing heat loss. It also acts as a windshield while still allowing oxygen to flow inward providing enough heat to boil 32 fluid ounces of water in about 2-4 minutes. The Solo Stove is indeed one of the most efficient wood burning stoves you'll ever own.
How it Works
The Solo Stove Campfire is a natural convection inverted downgas gasifer stove.
Designed with a double wall, The air intake holes on the bottom of the stove channel air to the bottom of the fire while at the same time, channels warm air up between the walls of the stove. This burst of preheated oxygen feeding back into the firebox through the smaller holes at the top of the stove causes a secondary combustion. This allows the fire to burn more complete which is why there is very little smoke during full burn.
To protect its surroundings the Solo Stove Campfire features a heat shield between the ash pan and the bottom of the stove which protects the ground under the stove from scorching.
A more efficient burn also means you'll use much less wood compared to an open camp fire.
