Cooking pizza in open fire grill outside in backyardMary Henn/Family Handyman

No matter if you spend more time outdoors during the warmer or cooler months, we can all agree that an outdoor gathering isn’t complete without a fire pit. If you’ve spent a little time researching the best smokeless fire pits, you’ve probably seen Solo Stove pop up a time or 20. Solo Stove is one of the leading brands for outdoor fire pits—and for good reason. The brand’s fire pits are stylish, compact and super efficient.

We even tried the Solo Stove Bonfire 2.0 to see if it holds up to the hype. Spoiler alert: It does. Solo Stove fire pits are wood-burning (and now pellet-burning), providing an authentic campfire feel. Best of all, Solo Stove offers a vast range of add-ons and accessories for heating, cooking and so much more.

Solo Stove accessories are meant to enhance your fire pit experience, but are by no means a requirement to enjoy a beautiful and enjoyable fire,” says Ty Hancock, director of product marketing at Solo Stove. “Accessories help to tailor the fire pit experience to your exact wishes.” From a pizza oven attachment to a heat-deflecting top, we’ve rounded up our favorite Solo Stove accessories to help you choose which ones to put at the top of your shopping list.

The Best Solo Stove Accessories

Pi Fire burning out in backyard

Pi Fire 

Not only did we test the Pi Fire out for ourselves, but it might just be one of our favorite Solo Stove accessories. Unlike the brand’s standalone pizza ovens, this Solo Stove pizza oven attaches to your existing RangerBonfire or Yukon fire pit for ultra-portable pizza making with no gas needed.

Most outdoor pizza ovens on the market run on propane, but the Pi Fire is fueled solely by firewood or wood-burning pellets. Like a traditional pizza kiln, this accessory has three legs, creating a gap between the pizza and the wood fire. It preheats in 30 to 45 minutes, then pizzas are placed above the flame and ready in just a couple of minutes.

While I noticed that the pizza oven takes some getting used to during out testing of the Pi Fire, I’m sure you’ll love it once you get the hang of slinging pies—and then you’ll be ready to add Solo Stove pizza oven accessories to your cart!


  • Makes artisan-quality pizzas
  • Sits right on top of Solo Stove’s fire pits
  • Built-in handles and carry case included
  • Simple to set up
  • Lifetime warranty


  • Larger pies are more tricky to get in and out

Pellet adapter burning out in backyard

Pellet Adapter

With the Solo Stove pellet adapter, you can effortlessly switch from firewood to wood-burning pellets, which offer a longer-lasting, cleaner fuel source for your fire pit. I found that using the fire pit pellet adapter was as easy as popping it in directly over the base plate and filling it with wood pellets.

It’s recommended that you use fire starters—Solo Stove sells its own—or pellet fire-starting gel on top of the pellets for lighting the fire. I used a couple of fire starters to get our fire going while testing the pellet adapter, and they worked like a charm. The fire was roaring within minutes! Talk about a useful Solo Stove accessory. Plus: Complete your setup with the Solo Stove chair.


  • Easy to use
  • Lightweight and slim
  • Compatible with virtually any type of wood pellet
  • Easier to control fire temperature
  • Works with other Solo Stove fire pit accessories


  • Wood pellets can be more expensive than firewood logs and chips

I Tried The All New Solo Stove Torch Mary Henn Family Handyman Img 2549 Yvedit Ft
Mary Henn/Family Handyman

Mesa Torch

The newly released Mesa Torch is a backyard torch light that runs on torch fluid. It’s a durable, stainless-steel torch made with the iconic Solo Stove design, similar to that of the tabletop Mesa. I love the new Mesa Torch (and tested it for myself!) because its semi-matte black and stainless steel design look incredibly sleek, it helps keeps bugs away (when using a fuel with repelling properties) and it provides ambiance to any outdoor scene.

Plus, you can choose between two configurations when setting up your Mesa Torch: tall and short. So you can light your fence line or have the flames at eye level while you’re out back enjoying the patio.


  • Burn time of five hours
  • Compatible with any torch fuel
  • Impressive quality and weather-resistant
  • Easy to assemble and use
  • Adjustable height


  • A little pricey
  • My specific pack accidentally didn’t include a clip for each torch

Fire Pit Shelter

While I’ve found that the Bonfire 2.0 pit holds up pretty well against the elements, I think a fire pit cover is essential to protecting your fire pit (unless you move it indoors after each use, but who wants to do that?). The shelter is weather resilient, making it one of the must-have Solo Stove accessories for ensuring the longevity of your fire pit. Plus, it’s available in three sizes and two colors for the Ranger, Bonfire and Yukon.


  • Protects fire pit from water, dust and snow
  • Durable aluminum stays
  • Fade-resistant and ultraviolet (UV)-tolerant
  • Weather-resilient polyvinyl chloride (PVC)-coated polyester
  • Uses outdoor-rated premium acrylic


  • May be redundant for those who own a carrying case

Heat Deflector

Heat Deflector

When I put the Solo Stove Bonfire to the test, I noticed that little heat radiates outward from the cylindrical base. The heat deflector solves that problem. Because the circular stainless steel top redirects heat from the cylinder outward, you get to enjoy more fireside warmth and coziness. Don’t let its look be intimidating—it’s easy to put together. And once it’s set up, you know your glamping trip won’t get too chilly.

Solo Stove makes a heat deflector for the Bonfire, Ranger and Yukon fire pits, and I think it’s a must-have if you plan to fire up your Solo Stove on chillier nights.


  • Radiates heat outward for increased warmth
  • Constructed from 304 stainless steel
  • Compatible with most accessories
  • Detachable legs
  • Collapsible design


  • A bit short, so adding logs can be a challenge

grilling food on iron grill top

Cast Iron Grill Top + Hub

Grill hot dogs, hamburgers and more over an open fire with the Bonfire cast-iron grill top and hub. The metal hub keeps the cast iron surface hoisted above the live flame, and the cast-iron grill top has wide grates for searing kabobs and steaks to perfection in the backyard or at the campsite.

I tested the cast-iron grill top and loved the wide-grate sear it made on veggies like peppers and zucchini. As noted in my review, the hub is essential when using the grill top with your fire pit. Make sure you buy the right size hub, as different sizes are made for the Bonfire, Ranger, Yukon and Canyon. If you’d rather sizzle than grill, Solo Stove’s cast iron griddle is the way to go for pancakes, eggs and smash burgers.


  • Grill top is quality, heavy-duty cast iron
  • Hub is lightweight and easy to lift and set on fire pit
  • Easy to set up, use and clean
  • Wide range of compatible accessories
  • Lifetime warranty


  • Doesn’t come with a carrying case

Fire Pit Surround


If you plan on having tiny humans and pets around your Solo Stove fire pit, I highly recommend getting the new surround as a protective barrier. The outside of the fire pit can get quite hot, and a barrier table will keep little hands safe and give you space to set down drinks, s’mores materials, logs and more.


  • 360-degree protection
  • Two sizes fit both Bonfire and Yukon
  • Reduces heat absorption
  • Adds additional space for drinks and snacks
  • Adjustable feet


  • Takes about an hour to build

Bonfire Shield


Speaking of fireside safety, another of our favorite Solo Stove accessories is the shield, as it helps protect you and your space from a crackling fire’s loose sparks. It also lets you step away from your fire pit with peace of mind, should you need to top off a drink or reload on snacks. The shield sits atop your Solo Stove fire pit to prevent embers from escaping, and comes with removal tools, so you can easily remove it from the fire pit without burning your fingers.


  • Comes in sizes that fit every Solo Stove pit
  • Keep pops and embers from escaping
  • Specialized removal tools included
  • Nests inside the fire pit’s burn chamber for easy storage


  • Holes are large, so some smaller particles do escape

Get your roast on with the Solo Stove sticks and tools bundle. The kit comes with four pro-grade sticks for marshmallows and wieners, fire pit tools for shuffling hot logs and a roll-up carrying case. The dual-pronged sticks are 36 inches long and lightweight, so they’re easy for the whole family to use.

  • Hollow stems for lightweight roasting
  • Long 36-inch stems
  • Poker angled for comfort
  • Made from 304 stainless steel

What to Look for When Buying Solo Stove Accessories

According to Hancock, some things to consider when purchasing accessories include:

  • Where will I store the fire pit? Consider investing in a shelter or fire pit lid to keep debris and the elements from sitting inside your fire pit. This will prolong the life of the pit and make starting up your next fire even faster.
  • Do I want to cook on my fire pit? The fire pit cooking system offers three different cast-iron options for exquisite fireside dishes. Just looking to roast some s’mores or hot dogs? The sticks come solidly constructed of 100% stainless steel, and include a custom carrying case for easy storage and cleanup.
  • Do I need to protect my kids or pets? The Solo Stove surround looks great as a centerpiece in the backyard, and also protects against accidental contact with the walls of the fire pit. Use the cool tabletop surface to rest a beverage, too.
  • Where will I primarily be using my fire pit? The stand elevates your fire pit off more delicate surfaces, like a wooden deck or grass, in order to minimize heat transfer from the fire pit to the surface below.
  • Am I using the fire pit primarily for warmth? If warmth is what you’re after, consider using the heat deflector. While a standalone Solo Stove fire pit will radiate plenty of heat, the deflector takes it up a notch and increases the heat radius that your fire pit can extend to.
  • What type of fuel will I be burning in my fire pit? Are you burning wood or considering switching things up and using pellets? The pellet adapter is a simple, drop-in solution to convert your wood-burning fire pit into a pellet-burning monster.

Why You Should Trust Us

I’m a shopping editor at Family Handyman and expert in outdoor trends. I’ve been tracking and testing Solo Stove products for over a year, and I’ve tested everything from the brand’s fire pits to pizza ovens to backyard heaters and more. While Solo Stove is known for churning out quality backyard and fire pit products, I test every single product I can get my hands on to ensure that the brand’s quality lives up to the hype—especially for the average consumer in their own backyard.

How We Found the Best Solo Stove Accessories

I’m already familiar with Solo Stove fire pits and have conducted hours and hours of extensive testing. However, there’s no better place to find an expert in Solo Stove accessories than the brand itself. That’s why my team spoke to the folks behind Solo Stove, getting an exclusive scoop on the best add-ons for the famous smokeless fire pits. My team consulted Ty Hancock, director of product marketing at Solo Stove, for this piece.

Thanks to personal testing and talking with a Solo Stove team member, the result is a list of tried-and-true Solo Stove accessories that’ll surely bring any bonfire to life this season.


Where can I buy Solo Stove accessories?

While there are several retailers that carry them, we recommend purchasing Solo Stove accessories directly from Solo Stove’s website. However, Solo Stove accessories are also available at trusted retailers like Amazon, Walmart and Ace Hardware.

Can I use Duraflame logs in a Solo Stove?

Yes, you can—with a few caveats. As detailed by Hancock, make sure that the walls of the fire pit become adequately heated. A single Duraflame log in the center of the pit may not be able to accomplish this. “The walls need to be superheated, because cold air enters the double walls of the fire pit and that air needs to be superheated,” he says.

“Once it becomes superheated, it will rise and exit the upper vent holes on the inside of the fire pit, and spontaneously combust with the smoke that is rising off of the fire,” he continues. “This is how a Solo Stove creates a smokeless effect. If using Duraflame logs, ensure that there is plenty of heat in the fire pit to create the secondary burn.”
