There's nothing quite like the warmth and ambiance of a roaring fire on a chilly evening, and the Solo Stove Yukon 27 is the perfect tool to create that experience. The Solo Stove Yukon 27 is a large, stainless steel fire pit that is designed to burn efficiently and produce minimal smoke. But before you can enjoy the warmth and beauty of the Yukon, you need to know how to light it. In this blog post, we'll walk you through the steps for lighting your new Solo Stove Yukon 27 and getting the perfect fire going.
Before you can light your Solo Stove Yukon 27, you need to gather your firewood. It's important to use dry, seasoned wood for the best results. You can use a mix of different sizes of logs and sticks, but for the purposes of this guide, we'll refer to "medium size logs" and "small logs or sticks."
The first step in lighting your Solo Stove Yukon 27 is to use medium size logs to create a base. Lay the logs in a circular pattern in the bottom of the fire pit, leaving a small gap in the center. The logs should be placed perpendicular to the air vents on the bottom of the Yukon.
Next, place a few fire starters on the grate of the Solo Stove Yukon 27. You can use commercially available fire starters or make your own using kindling and wax. Place the fire starters on the grate in the center of the fire pit, directly over the gap in the logs.
Once the fire starters are in place, use small logs or sticks to form a teepee around the fire starters. Place the sticks or logs vertically, leaning them against each other to form a cone shape. This will help to create an airflow that will feed the fire.
Now it's time to light the fire starters. Use a lighter or matches to ignite the fire starters, and watch as the flames begin to spread to the small logs and sticks. The teepee structure will help the flames to grow and spread throughout the fire pit.
As the flames grow, you can add larger logs to the fire. The Solo Stove Yukon 27 can accommodate logs up to 22 inches in length, so feel free to add bigger logs as the fire grows. As the fire burns, you can sit back and enjoy the warmth and beauty of your Solo Stove Yukon 27.
Lighting your Solo Stove Yukon 27 is easy with these simple steps. By gathering your firewood, creating a base with medium size logs, using small logs or sticks to form a teepee, lighting the fire starters, and adding larger logs as the fire grows, you can enjoy the warmth and ambiance of a beautiful fire in your Solo Stove Yukon 27. Remember to always practice fire safety and never leave your fire unattended.
