The Solo Stove Bonfire 2.0 is the middle child of the Solo Stove fire pit lineup, but it's definitely not one to be ignored. Taking the middle ground might just be the way to go when you want to light up a fire for a party, or you can break out the chocolate, marshmallows, and graham crackers for the ultimate smores get-together.
The Bonfire 2.0 is portable enough to carry in its own carrying case but big enough to warm up by or to light up the night. The Bonfire is the just right fit to set up on the back porch and create a beautiful centerpiece to gather around.

The main difference is in size and price. All of the accessories are compatible and designed to fit and function with each of the models and it will all come down to which size you need or want.
Is the Solo Stove Bonfire Fire Pit really smokeless?
The big question is it really smokeless, and if so how does this work?
In order for the Solo Stove Bonfire 2.0 to be smokeless there has to be some design elements that create the perfect combination of ventilation and airflow.
This is accomplished through vent holes in the bottom of the double-walled burn chamber that allow air to flow up and out of vent holes in the top of the chamber. Once the fire is going and the heat inside the chamber has reached a certain temp, a “secondary burn” occurs. This extra blast of heated oxygen is the reason there’s no smoke. It is Solo Stoves' very own Signature 360° Airflow Design™.
So no more moving around the fire to escape the smoke, or smelling like a campfire. You can just sit and enjoy the beauty of the fire.
How do I cook with my Solo Stove Bonfire?
Break out the marshmallows and let's make some smores! And that is only the beginning of the ways to use Bonfire 2.0.
Solo Stove has made it easy to use its fire pits for cooking. Adding the Bonfire Hub to your fire pit turns it into an entire cooking system.
You can start with the Bonfire Cast iron Grill Top and get some steaks going, or if your guests call for something different, how about a cast iron griddle, or a cast iron wok, the options available make it possible to treat your guest to a wide variety of gourmet treats, or simple burgers and hotdogs.
Overall design and stylish looks make the Bonfire 2.0 a solid choice for a firepit. The price may seem a bit steep once you have bundled everything together you might want, but the quality speaks for itself and makes its worth equal to its value and the price is a bit easier to handle.
Having all the accessories broken down into piece-by-piece purchases might be an option if the big bundles are too much in one bite. But the price and the return are equally matched.
Smokeless is an awesome part of these stoves and to be able to sit and enjoy a fire without all the smell, smoke, and constant moving around makes the brand itself a great choice.
The size of the Bonfire makes it a perfect go-anywhere companion on your camping trips and it's big enough to gather around in the backyard. Overall the middle kid, the Solo Stove Bonfire 2.0 might be the perfect fire pit for the job.
