Understanding the Accessories Included
Let’s delve into the details of the Solo Stove Yukon Bundle’s accessories. Through a detailed analysis of each accessory’s functionality and contribution towards safety, convenience, and overall performance enhancement, you’ll understand why they aren’t just extras but essential components for your smokeless fire pit.
The Yukon Shield effectively prevents sparks and embers from escaping the fire pit. It’s an essential safety feature that offers peace of mind while you’re enjoying your fire pit.
The shield is a two-piece design, and it also comes with handles for lifting off the fire pit. The shield comes in both the backyard bundles and the ultimate bundle. It is also included in the big yard bundle, which is available on Amazon.
If you already own the Yukon fire pit and are looking for accessories, the shield is also included in the accessories bundle.
You’ll find the stand that comes with your fire pit bundle is perfect for use on heat-sensitive surfaces, providing a stable base and preventing any scorch marks or damage.
If you are planning to use your Yukon fire pit on composite or wood decking, sand, or grass, a stand is essential. If you have stamped, stained or painted concrete, a stand is also recommended.
The stand elevates your fire pit off the ground by 2.8 inches. It has holes in it allowing airflow underneath your fire pit, reducing the likeliness of burning the surface underneath. It can also be used with a fire pit mat for extra protection.
The stand comes in all bundles that include the Yukon fire pit, except the new surround bundle.
The Yukon shelter is essentially a cover for your fire pit. Available in two colors, the shelter protects your Yukon from rain and snow, enhancing its longevity.
Let’s break down some key features:
|Feature||Why it Matters|
|Durability||Withstands wear and tear and extends the lifespan of the fire pit|
|Easy to Use||No need for complex instructions or tools|
|Portability||Lightweight design allows for easy transport|
|Weather Resistance||Protects against rain, and snow, enhancing longevity|
The shelter comes in the big yard bundle, backyard bundle and ultimate bundle. If you already own the Yukon, you can also find the shelter in the accessories bundle.
Don’t underestimate the value of the lid that comes with this package. Many Yukon buyers who didn’t buy the bundle have commented they don’t know why they didn’t buy the lid sooner. Here are some great uses for the lid:
- Cover your ashes at night and put out the fire;
- Reduce the risk of accidental fires;
- Convert your fire pit into a small table when not in use;
- Protect rain from pooling inside your fire pit;
- Prevents ash spilling out when moving the fire pit;
The lid is available in the ultimate bundle, backyard bundle and essential bundle.
Yukon Handle (Yukon Ultimate Bundle)
The handle comes in the ultimate bundle 2.0. You might think you don’t need the handle, but let me tell you, trying to move the 38lb Yukon fire pit without a handle is a difficult task. If you want to carry the fire pit to dump the ashes, move it to the shed for storage, or lift it to put it in the carry bag, the handle makes everything so much easier.
The Yukon handle features a robust design, built to endure heavy use and resist wear over time. The handle installation process is straightforward, making it user-friendly even for first-time Solo Stove owners.
When considering ergonomics, you’ll find this handle comfortable to grip, reducing strain on your hand. Solo Stove really have thought of everything with this one.
Fire Pit Tools (Yukon Ultimate Bundle)
You’ll also find a set of tools in the ultimate package, designed for adding logs and poking embers. These are tools that you probably don’t think you need until you look at how well they are designed.
The poker is angled at 165 degrees so your hands aren’t vertically above the fire, reducing the risk of burns. It also makes adjusting your embers easy from a sitting position, because once you’re comfortable around the fire pit, who wants to get up?
The two-handled grabber helps you put large logs into the fire without dropping them and sending embers flying everywhere. It also helps you adjust larger logs that are already burning.
Roasting Sticks (Yukon Ultimate Bundle)
The roasting sticks are another accessory you probably don’t think you need until you’ve used them. They’re 36 inches long and great for keeping hands well away from the fire – if you have children who like to roast marshmallows or make smores, I highly recommend these.
The design is excellent, unscrewing in the middle for easy storage in the included roll-up storage bag.
Crafted from 304-grade stainless steel, they’ll last as long as your fire pit does. And if you’re enjoying your Yukon at home, take the roasting sticks inside and pop them in the dishwasher for easy cleanup.
New Yukon Surround
The newly released surround is stylish and adds a touch of sophistication to your Yukon fire pit. But it’s not only about that. If you use your fire pit on a deck, the surround helps to elevate it an extra 4.9 inches. I would still recommend using a fire pit mat underneath for added protection.
The perforated steel lets air flow through to keep the surround from heating up too much, offering added safety and a barrier around the Yukon fire pit. You can use your other Solo Stove accessories with the surround, except the stand.
There is also a new shelter that fits over the surround to help protect it and your Yukon from the elements when not in use.
Yukon User Experience and Reviews

What Doesn’t Come in Any Yukon Bundle?
At the time of writing, there are four accessories you won’t find in any Solo Stove Yukon bundle. They are:
- Heat Deflector – sends the heat out sideways around the fire pit rather than vertically
- Heat deflector carry bag – a carry bag for easy portability of the heat deflector
- Gloves – optional insulated gloves with gripped palms that are heat resistant up to 450°F
- Pellet Adaptor (for wood pellets) – if you prefer to use wood pellets in your Solo Stove. The pellet adaptor fits both the Yukon 1.0 and 2.0 and you can use both heating pellets and cooking pellets with the adaptor.
If you like to cook over your fire pit, I highly recommend adding on the pellet adaptor, particularly if you like flavoring foods.
Frequently Asked Questions
What type of wood is best to use with the Solo Stove Yukon for optimal performance?
For optimal Yukon fuel efficiency, hardwoods like oak or hickory are best. Size matters too; logs and larger sticks work well. We recommend cutting edge firewood if you want to buy wood online.
How often should the ash pan be cleaned for the best maintenance of the Solo Stove Yukon?
For optimal maintenance, clean the ash pan after each use. Its 304 stainless steel material makes ash disposal easy with the right cleaning tools. Regularly schedule this task and consider ash reuse in composting or gardening.
Can the Solo Stove Yukon be used in all weather conditions, including rain and snow?
The outdoor adaptability of the Yukon ensures usage in rainy and snowy conditions without weather impact. If storing your Yukon outside, the waterproof shelter can further protect it during persistent rain or snow.
