  1. Interesting side note....the first Yukon I received was dented in the side wall at the base of the unit. The dent was under a Styrofoam collar. The styrofoam was perfect. The box was perfect. We figured the damage had to happen before the unit was packaged. Maybe the units were too big and heavy for the employees packaging them????? They did send a prepaid shipping label and replaced the dented Yukon, no questions asked. I used the Bonfire last week on the water. Just used the Yukon last night. That domed fire grate is a royal pain. Decided it is getting cut out and replaced with something flat. The Bonfire performance is so much nicer!!!!
  2. I e-mailed them and asked about the fire grate, They said it is bowed the same as the old 30 inch. If it is.................not good!! Kristin H (Solo Stove) Jun 26, 2020, 1:32 PM CDT Hi Jon, Thanks for reaching out! Other than the size everything will be the same. Please feel free to check out this link that give Yukon 27" vs 30". https://blog.solostove.com/30-yukon-enters-the-hall-of-flame/ Let us know if you have any other questions. Have a great weekend! Kristin | Customer Relations Specialist Jon Besemer Jun 25, 2020, 11:54 AM CDT Is the fire grate inside the New 27" Yukon bowed/curved as much as the Old 30" Yukon or did you solve that problem and make it flatter like the Bonfire? ------------------ Submitted from: https://www.solostove.com/yukon-27/
  3. @ckreef Oh No!!!!!!!! (not too sure about the no messing with air vents feature)(looks like there is a top vent/air control) ??????????? Solo Stove Grill
  4. When springtime comes in snow country, 9*C / 48*F feels really warm...............when fall-winter starts after summer in snow country, we are freezing also in 9*C / 48*F weather.

  6. From 30* C (86* F) to 9* C (48* F) That is a crazy drop in temp. However MacKenzie would be sitting on her deck or planting flowers in 9* C weather 😃
  7. Send your snow pictures, please. 😁. We got to see all the beach pictures during our winter!!!!!!
  8. @Basher Our lake is a great fishing lake. We have a couple fish hatcheries on the lake. It is very clean water. However I have to admit..........I am not a fisherman. My dad never fished and never taught us kids. Grew up on the water but no one in the family fished. Too busy fixing our broken boats!!!!!! The bay we anchored in is very shallow. We hauled in firewood in a flat bottom boat, sat in chairs around the fire, kept it going until late and stayed the night on the boats. Something we have talked about doing for a long time. Weather was perfect.
  9. @Terrablue22NC I have a 19TT and a 16TT, both are sitting on a thin rubber mat on a pull cart. Have done 500* pizza cooks with no issues with the rubber melting. I believe your straps would be fine to leave under the KK.
  10. @MacKenzie Here you are MacKenzie............................. The setup........................ The Lake.......... The sunset....................
  11. @Basher I did look at the Breeo also. My thought process was........Breeo's look better to cook on.......I have enough grills to cook on........I'm buying this unit as a fireplace............the Breeo's are significantly more expensive. Bought the Solo Bonfire......really liked the performance.............so I bought the larger Yukon..............unhappy with the design. However.........now i would like to see the larger Breeo in person. Jeez..................it never ends 😳
  12. Sweet addition!!!!! Need to hire you for my sheet metal change to the Yukon fire grate!
  13. Tomorrow is the longest day (light) of the year............................ Hoping to stay awake long enough to light the fire ......... let alone see the sunset 😁. My nickname is "8 O'Clock Jon" I will do my best Mac!!!!!!!
  14. @tekobo I really like the Solo stoves. Bought the Bonfire first and was super excited about getting the Yukon.......only to be very disappointed with that fire grate dome shape and how it limits the stacking for the logs. You can work around it but it is just NOT a good design for the $$$$. Not a sheet metal fabricator....but a few support brackets under a flat fire grate would solve the problem, I'm planing to cut it out and make my own fire grate design. The other thing I didn't mention about the Yukon is that it almost takes two people to handle and move it. I have long arms and a strong back but trying to dump the ashes by my self with out dropping & denting it is a challenge. This weekend we are planning to take the Bonfire out to a bay / sandbar in the lake, put it on a metal table in about 1 foot of water and enjoy a fire after dark. Should be fun!!!!!
  15. Another month or so until Iowa sweet corn..................Hang in there Tony!!!
