Baseball is called America's favorite pastime. We don't buy it.

Just think about it. If you pit watching baseball against watching a blazing fire, the latter takes home the glory all day. Then again, we're only a little biased.

Perfecting a smokeless fire is Solo Stove's favorite pastime. It's why we test different fuel sources for expected experience, burn time, and fuel amount in each Solo Stove fire pit size. We aim to take the guesswork out of starting and maintaining a fire, so you can enjoy America's real pastime: spending time with the people you love, in the outdoors, telling stories around a fire.

Want the smell and crackle of burning wood for about an hour but have limited backyard space? We've got you covered: Ranger and oak firewood. How about a stoke-free, 2+ hour fire while you host? With the addition of the Fire Pit Pellet Adapter, we've got recommendations for that, too: Bonfire and wood pellets. Now, choose your path of least resistance below:

Each fuel source offers its own unique experiences and benefits. Firewood's snap, crackle, and pop are ear candy. It's an hour-long immersive auditory experience that gets better as it burns. On the other hand, a pellet burn is a hushed roar. Flames steadily rush through secondary burn holes for two solid hours of uninterrupted warmth. We could go on about each fuel type. But the graphic below perfectly sums up how each fuel impacts your experience around the fire.

Building a fire can be cumbersome at times, but it doesn't have to be. With the right size Solo Stove fire pit and our fuel recommendations, you'll go from a match to a secondary burn in less than 15 minutes. And that's true whether you burn firewood, pellets, or recycled firewood logs. Solo Stove fire pits are designed to provide optimal airflow to your fire, allowing you to focus on what matters most--the experience.
