I recently got a Solo Stove and have been testing it out. Since it is typically pretty wet in Oregon, being able to get a fire going in damp weather is a really useful skill.
This video is a nice tip on how to get the fire going. My experience so far with this stove is that once it does get going, it is very hot and very robust. But getting it going in such a small, tight space does require a method, and some practice.
