Anyone thought of toting one of these things around to cook on? I mean it looks like it would work in camp..but we all know those marketing folks have a job to do. TIA

That is just the kind of info I need! Much obliged.The one solo stove I was around I wouldn’t want to cook on. Not sure if it was because it was newer or something else but it was fumey. To the point even my girlfriend noticed it and was turned away from it.
A small grill like a Weber Smokey Jr is great. Under $50. I'd suggest trying an inexpensive grill or two before spending $$$ on something where cooking is an afterthought. But, keep us posted.Much obliged friends! I could care less about having it for bonfires, but if it cooks efficiently that is what I am after.
I like the idea of using twigs or whatever is to be found in remote areas to cook with...that would be handy for 2 weeks in the backcountry. Nothing against Weber as those little bastards work well..lolA small grill like a Weber Smokey Jr is great. Under $50.

This is the answer. Any local big box home improvement or hardware store has these in stock. The solo stove is not nearly as convenient to get going as one of these charcoal starter deals.Another option that I use is the Oklahoma Joe Halftime XL chimney starter with a grill grate over it. It's a lot cheaper than a dedicated stove and does double duty as...you guessed it...a charcoal chimney starter for use at home or camp! Again, it's great for grilling or skillet/pot use.
