Crafted from stainless steel, the Yukon is sleek and shiny. And compared to the 78-pound Brio X Series, it weighs in at a relatively light 38 pounds. One drawback to the Yukon’s lightweight construction is that it is less durable. For example, a strong blow or drop will surely break the Yukon.

While both of these fire pits are solid smokeless performers, they certainly have the upper hand in terms of maintaining an efficient and quality burn. It happens Solo Stove Yukon. It’s incredibly easy to start a fire in it. And the wood once lit inside this pit will keep burning for hours with minimal interference.

The Brio X Series is less forgiving. It’s hard to put out that initial fire. I’ve also found that the Breo’s smokeless secondary burn requires more fuel to kickstart. Once it’s following along, it’s not difficult to maintain the pit flames. Keep in mind that Brio expels more heat on its sides than Yukon. This makes it a better choice for use in cold weather.

Decision

When it’s all said and done it’s easy for me to recommend the Brio X Series 24 over the Solo Stove Yukon. While it can’t quite match the Yukon’s phenomenal smokeless fires, it’s simply capable of more. The Brio is also built like a tank and in my book it’s worth more than portability.
