Let me make this clear: You put hot dogs (or sausages, or marshmallows...) on this brilliant contraption. Then you sit comfortably by the fire and pretend like you're fishing. But you're cooking dinner.
And then, with a simple flick of your wrist, your food flips itself.
Campfire fishing for s'mores?
I'm in love. Let's eat.
We're not afraid to admit that we bought and tried just about every campfire hot dog cooker and marshmallow stick there is. And just about every one of them ended up feeling either gimmicky, awkward, or like they're about to drop our delicious food into the fire at any moment.
As soon as we tried this campfire cooking rod from Minnesota inventor Bob Hurt, we knew we had to find a way to bring it to you in the Trek Light Shop.
The brilliant, yet simple, design uses a counterweight (in the shape of a fish, no less) that allows you to flip your food over with a simple flick of your wrist.
It's pure genius.
When you first pick up the Campfire Fishing Pole the first thing you'll notice is how sturdy it feels.
This is no twig or telescoping rod ready to collapse under the weight of your hard earned meal - the stainless steel campfire rod will easily handle all types of hot dogs, sausages, brats, marshmallows or anything else you want to try sticking on there (bacon, anyone?).
What you'll notice next is how comfortable it is. Because it uses a fulcrum design, your hand isn't supporting all the weight at the end of a long, extended pole.
It's easy to hold, while keeping your distance from the fire, and that makes it easy and fun for kids to help with the cooking too.
The innovative design of the Fire Fishing Pole makes it capable of cooking a variety of things at once (4 marshmallows, 4 hot dogs, or 2 larger sausages) but you'll definitely want to grab a few poles so the whole family can join in the cooking experience!
For every Campfire Cooking Rod sold, we work with Trees For The Future to plant a tree in your honor.
Why is that so powerful? By helping small farmers and villages around the world with the planting of fruit & vegetable trees, shade trees and more, together we're going beyond basic environmental change. Your simple purchase creates a chain reaction that will feed the hungry, create small business, and generate a huge amount of social good and happiness. You get an amazing new way to cook around the campfire and create a legacy of change.
