Solo Stove Vs Ohuhu

Are you ready for your camping trip?Have you decided how you’ll prepare your meals?

If you’re not a fan of campfires, one of the most essential items on your checklist should be a camping stove, but do you know how to choose a good one?

When it comes to buying a camping stove, you need to consider factors such as where you’ll be using the stove, the distance you’ll be traveling, durability, cost, and the availability and additional cost of the fuel source required for that stove.

Speaking of fuel, wood is one of the best options. Wood is easy to source even if you’re on the go. It’s also very light, making it ideal for long distance hikes.

Moreover, nothing comes cheaper than free wood in the form of fallen trees or branches. So, it’s a great choice if you don’t like the idea of costly fuels.

Ohuhu and Solo are top contenders in the wood-burning camping-stove market, but which is better?

These two brands have several models of wood-burning camping stoves, so many, in fact, that we can’t review them all.

Instead, we’re going to compare two of their best-selling units –the Ohuhu Wood-burning Camping Stove and the Solo Stove Lite Wood-burning Backpacking Stove – and see how they stack against up in a camp-cooker showoff.

Weber Spirit II Vs Spirit I

Are you in the market for the next big thing in barbecues? Or just unsure which grill is right for you? Searching for the best grill can be exhaustive. With so many brands on the market, how can you choose?

Chances are you have never heard of George Stephen Sr. of Weber Brothers Metal Works. But you sure have heard of his invention. In 1952, Stephen affixed a few legs to and cut some air vents into a halved marine buoy, thus creating the kettle grill.

Since then, Weber has established themselves as one of the most trusted and reliable grill brands. But similar to most appliances, there are always differences between models.

The Spirit I and Spirit II, although sharing the same moniker, are not quite alike.

For comparison purposes, we will be looking at the Spirit E-310 series.

Pit Boss 71220 Kamado BBQ Ceramic Grill Cooker Review

Earthenware cooking is a form of cooking that’s popular in Chinese culture.

For Westerners, a kamado grill fueled with charcoal is the modern counterpart.

These grills have the same aesthetic appearance as your run-of-the-mill backyard grill, but their ceramic construction offers exceptional insulation.

The interior of a kamado grill can absorb heat and then consistently maintain a temperature during the cooking, ensuring meats are evenly cooked.

It’s a great way to solve problems with temperature inconsistencies that you may find in places with colder climates, because the outside temperature and outdoor weather don’t affect a kamado grill.

A great number of grill manufacturers have created versions of the kamado grill. This popular sub-niche of the industry has a number of different benefits.

Pit Boss is one of the companies getting in on the trend, with 2 main types of kamado grill offered. The 71220 is the 22-inch, while another 24-inch version is also available.

Roccbox Review

Tired of cooking my favorite pizzas and calzones in my oven, I wanted a change of pace.

I decided to give outdoor pizza ovens a try.

Maybe it’s the strange design of the Roccbox,  but I thought I’d veg out on pizza while watching some of my favorite sci-fi movies.

It seemed fitting…right?

But it wasn’t just the unique design that intrigued me.

One thing that immediately sets outdoor pizza ovens from your typical indoor oven is that they usually reach cooking temperatures faster. Some can do it in 10 minutes, others may take a little longer but it’s usually no longer than 30 minutes.

But that’s not all.
