Whether you already own a Solo Stove fire pit or you’re considering purchasing one soon, chances are you’ve been slightly tempted to buy one or more of the fire pit accessories they also offer. However, if you’re like me, that temptation is quickly followed by feeling offended by the price.

Assortment of Solo stove accessories

I’m a frugal shopper and don’t like to spend money on products that I can find less expensive elsewhere. However, I had a moment of weakness during a Solo Stove accessories sale and splurged on the marshmallow roasting sticks and fire pit tools to go along with our Yukon.

It didn’t take us long to come to the realization that these were literally the best fire pit accessories we’d ever laid hands on. Maybe we’d only been using the cheapest junk on the market up to that point, but we were thoroughly impressed with the quality of each new fire pit accessory we added to our collection.

Considering the build quality, we were able to justify spending more, knowing that these products would long outlast their less expensive counterparts. In fact, we often joke about how our kids will fight over who inherits the Solo Stove roasting sticks after we die. Because they’re that high in quality, they will outlive their owners.

Best Fire Pit Accessories From Solo Stove

Of all the Solo Stove accessories we own, there are some that we feel are more necessities, while others we would consider to be more “luxury” or optional items.

Your Solo Stove fire pit is going to last a very long time. Feel free to take your time and slowly build up your collection of accessories over the years to come. These backyard fire pit accessories also make great gifts, so drop your hints early for Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, your birthday, and Christmas.

1. Solo Stove Stand

Solo Stove fire pits get very hot. Without a stand, your outdoor fire pit will certainly scorch the ground below it. If you plan to light your Solo Stove on the grass, patio, or deck, the stand will elevate your smokeless fire pit just enough to allow airflow, protecting any surface below.

There are certainly other, less expensive options out there for raising your Solo Stove up, but bricks and the like wouldn’t look nearly as nice under your shiny stainless steel fire pit.

If there is only 1 fire pit accessory that you’re going to add to your Solo Stove, it should be the stand. However, if you’re planning on only burning it over a rocky or sandy surface, feel free to skip this item.

2. Shelter or Lid

Once you’ve invested money in a Solo Stove fire pit, you’ll want to protect your investment. They do come with a lifetime warranty, but there are also things you can do to help take care of it and keep it in good shape.

The inside of the fire pit is the main thing that should probably be protected from getting wet. Solo Stove offers two different accessories to help with that task: The fire pit lid and the shelter (or fire pit cover).

When we purchased our Yukon a few years ago, the white shelter was part of the backyard bundle. We keep the Yukon covered all the time unless it’s being used or still cooling down. The shelter does an excellent job of keeping the inside of the burn chamber dry, which is protecting it from rust.

The other fire pit accessory that Solo Stove offers that would do this same job is the lid. If memory serves correctly, the lid didn’t come out until after we’d purchased our bundle, but if I had it to do all over again, I might have chosen it instead of the shelter.

Not only does the fire pit lid protect the inside of the fire pit, but it also allows your Solo Stove to act as a table to hold drinks or other small items when not hosting a fire. Also, the stainless steel lid is a little more attractive in my opinion than the white shelter which shows dirt and grime pretty quickly.

Solo Stove has redesigned the shelters since our Yukon purchase and now offers them in black or ash gray, which I’m sure probably does a much better job of disguising the dirt than the previous white fire pit cover.

Regardless of which way you decide to go, I highly recommend you pick up either a lid or a shelter to protect your Solo Stove from the elements. (Unless you decide to go big and get a Station… but more on that in a bit.)

3. Fire Pit Tools

Adding new logs to the hot coals

With cheap or homemade stone fire pits simply throwing a new log on the fire might be perfectly fine, but we prefer a more gentle approach with our Solo Stove fire pits. I don’t want to do anything that might put a dent in the nice stainless steel.

The fire pit tools are perfect accessories when you need to add more wood to your open wood fire pit or stoke the fire. Like the fire pits, they’re also made out of 304 stainless steel and are heavy-duty and of very good quality. It should be noted that both tools are bent and they’re supposed to be that way. The slight angle allows you to stay a little more protected from the extreme heat while tending to the fire.

4. Roasting Sticks

I cannot say enough good things about these roasting sticks. Honestly, they may not be the most “critical” in this list of best fire pit accessories, but they are my favorite.

The roasting sticks come in a very nice carrying case, and each stick comes in two pieces which are then screwed together after removing from the case. Like the fire pit tools, these are made of 304 stainless steel and are so well built.

Obviously, the roasting sticks are perfect for roasting marshmallows or even just hot dogs over the open fire. Whether using a Yukon, Bonfire, or Ranger, ditch the old sticks and twigs and use the Solo Stove roasting sticks to instantly elevate your backyard party.

Here’s a helpful tip for you to remember: the stainless steel roasting sticks are super easy to clean using soap and water as long as they do not return to the fire to “burn off” the remaining marshmallow residue. I know when most people roast marshmallows, they tend to put the sticks right back into the fire as soon as they remove the marshmallow because they assume that helps clean them. And maybe that’s true with other types of roasting sticks. But believe me, it definitely does more harm than good and they will definitely be harder to get sparkly clean if they do.

5. Heat Deflector

One of the only complaints that come from Solo Stove users is the lack of ambient heat dispersed outward toward users sitting around the fire. They have recently released a heat deflector that sits atop the smokeless fire pit (much like the cooking systems) to stop the heat from shooting straight up, and force it to redirect out horizontally so you can enjoy more fireside warmth.

We now have heat deflectors for both our Yukon and our Bonfire and can whole-heartedly attest to the fact that they do successfully redirect the heat downward.

Sitting by the Yukon without the heat deflector, my face was almost uncomfortably hot while the rest of my body wasn’t feeling any heat. The second the heat deflector was put in place, the heat moved all the way down to my feet, legs, and torso. If you like using your fire pit during cold nights, adding the heat deflector to your collection of fire pit accessories is highly recommended.

6. Shield

The spark shield was included in our Yukon backyard bundle that we started our Solo Stove obsession with. It’s one of those fire pit accessories that I really debated over for a while when making that purchase. Is it really necessary?

Ultimately I decided to go for it to save our patio furniture cushions.

Sparks and embers will inevitably pop and fly out of your wood-burning fire pit no matter what brand you’re burning a fire in. It’s just part of the wood-burning fire pit experience. We have found the spark screen to be very effective at keeping most of the flyaways contained to the fire pit.

Admittedly, this is a problem that you don’t have to worry about when using gas fire pits, but then you miss out on the best backyard fire pit experience.

Also, the shield comes with tools to assist you in transferring the different parts of the spark screen on and off of the hot fire pit and they are great as well!

So my advice is that if you are burning your Solo Stove near any combustible material (wood deck, outdoor rug, furniture cushions), the spark screen would be pretty important for you to have.

7. Fire Pit Pellet Adapter

Many Solo Stove smokeless fire pit users prefer the convenience and ease of burning pellets, which in some cases can offer 2 or more hours of hands-free flames without the need to tend to the fire. This pellet adapter provides a removable base with holes small enough that you won’t lose pellets into the ash pan.

8. Handle

Yukon handle

If you are the proud owner of a Yukon or a Canyon, I highly recommend you also be the proud owner of this handle. Without it, the the large fire pits are just big and awkward to move and maneuver by yourself. The handle allows one person to carry the Yukon independently which is a significant game-changer, as far as I’m concerned. It’s the least expensive of all the fire pit accessories, so if you’re buying or have a Yukon or Canyon, don’t even think about it; just get one.

Now if you’ve got a Bonfire or a Ranger, that’s another story. We have not felt a need for the handle for our Bonfire.  And I’m certain that we wouldn’t if we had the even smaller Ranger. Those fire pits are smaller, lighter, and a lot easier to pick up and carry than the Yukon.

However, we don’t make a habit of moving hot fire pits. I think some people might use the handle to relocate their Solo Stove to a different location at the end of the burn, perhaps to protect it from rain or burglary. The fire has died down and it’s just smoldering coals, but the fire pit is still too hot to touch. That’s when the handle might come in handy. However, we’ve just never felt that need ourselves.

9. Station

outdoor fire pit accessories storage

The more you add to your Solo Stove collection, the more you’ll find yourself wanting the Station.

It’s a two-shelf storage unit that is able to accommodate any size Solo Stove (Ranger, Bonfire, or even the Yukon). It can also be used to store firewood and keep it dry and ready for your next fire. There is a cover that drops down on each side to keep things protected from the weather. And my favorite is the universal tool rack for storing our fire pit accessories and tools.

Since we already have a sizable wood rack fully loaded and a constantly growing Solo Stove collection, we’re using our Station strictly for Solo Stove product storage and it’s working beautifully.

10. Cooking System

If you like cooking more than just hot dogs and marshmallows over an open wood fire, the cooking system might be a good addition for you. We recently picked up the grill and griddle to go with our Bonfire. There is also a wok, but we do not have that one… yet. Basically, there is a hub, which is the stainless steel frame that goes on top of the Solo Stove and then the cast iron grill, griddle, or wok are interchangeable above that.

Just keeping it real though, make a plan for storing these fire pit accessories before making this purchase. These are the kinds of things that you think “that would be fun to have!” so you order them and get them home and THEN it occurs to you that you have no idea where you’re actually going to store them when not in use. Just sharing the tip to think through that before clicking the “buy” button.

11. Pi Fire Pizza Oven

You can really take your fire pit experience to the next level by cooking homemade pizza over one. The Pi Fire pizza oven sits on top of your fire pit, allowing the intense fire to heat the pizza stone from below. And since there is no direct flame reaching for the pizza, there is not much need to turn or rotate the crust as it cooks. Of the 3 pizza ovens made by Solo Stove, this is the only one that goes hand-in-hand with your fire pit.
