6 Tools to Roast More Than Marshmallows Over a Campfire
Cook burgers, popcorn, French toast and more at your backyard fire pit.
Backyard fire pits and camping are some of the summer activities that seamlessly extend into fall. And what better way to enjoy nights spent around the fire than with food made in it? Sure, there's traditional campfire food like s'mores, chili and lasagna, but we think the fall is the perfect time to think outside the box. These campfire tools make it easy and fun to roast a variety of foods over the fire including burgers, sandwiches and even pie dough. Here are five products to turn your backyard bonfire into a fun activity for the whole family.
You've probably roasted hot dogs over an open flame, but if burgers are more your speed this campfire iron gives you the option for cooking patties instead. Simply mix your favorite burger meat, shape it to fit the iron and grill away. If you like cheese on your burger, we recommend adding it to the bun to avoid it sticking to the iron.
Okay, so this might not be the most practical roaster, but for campfire favorites like hot dogs and marshmallows, it's a fun trick. Anyone who likes a char on their hot dog or a burnt marshmallow will love this fishing-style stick. It's not the easiest to control for anyone who likes a perfect golden brown marshmallow.
Grab your favorite biscuit or pie dough and get baking over the fire. These Wolf'em Sticks are designed with a round end, which holds the dough of your choice. You'll cook it over a flame to make a pastry "bowl" that can be filled with ice cream, jam, chocolate and more.
We love a big bowl of popcorn at night. And, with this popcorn maker you can pop your own bowl over the campfire. Just add your kernels and a small amount of oil and shake. You'll have popcorn in minutes just like you would over the stove or in the microwave. Because this tool uses oil over an open flame, read the instructions on the packaging before use.
The combination of an open flame and social distancing requires some extendable marshmallow sticks this year. These 30-inch sticks are ideal for kids who might venture too close to the flame to get their s'more just right.
