We are big fans of the BioLite CampStove 2 and have used it on several trips with great results. The BioLite FirePit $199 (currently on Kickstarter with May 2018 shipping) continues on the tradition of air injected conbustion. This is BioLite’s biggest oven/stove system yet, perfect for sitting around as a campfire or cooking with wood or charcoal. All this goodness with less smoke and a more efficient fire. Sign me up. More after the break.
When you see smoke coming off of a typical campfire or firepit, that’s unburnt fuel; particulate matter that could have been combusted inside of the fire, but instead it’s getting on your clothes, in your hair, and more importantly, in your lungs (that’s why so many of us get a headache about an hour or two after sitting around a campfire). Think about it this way: if you saw a car driving down the street with a bunch of smoke coming out of its tailpipe you’d think that’s a badly tuned car. Well guess what, smoky fires are badly tuned fires.
