Solo Stove makes sturdy, semi-portable fire pits that getting extremely hot, extremely fast. The brand’s new charcoal grill borrows that tech and puts it to work.

It’s made of sturdy stainless steel, assembles quickly and looks slick, but if there were one selling point for Solo’s first go at a grill, it’d be air control. What the brand calls 360-Degree Airflow is meant to guarantee quicker coal lighting and ready times. Air flows through the holes at the base of the drum and through what amounts to a wind tunnel that leads directly into the coal bed, feeding the coals the right amount of oxygen to get (and keep) the fire going.

Like its fire pits, Solo’s grill is double-walled and features a removable ashtray for cleaning as well. Right now, the brand is holding a pre-sale for the grill bundle, which comes with a grill grill stand, grill shelter, basic grill tools and a bag of all-natural charcoal. Grills are scheduled to ship early September.
