The stainless steel cooking fork is easy to clean while the colorful heat-resistant handle keeps your hand comfortable.

Camping Packing and Cooking Tips for Newbies

Prepared hiker with her Rolla Roaster and dog.Going out on a camping trip for the first time this year? Or are you taking a camping newbie with you?

We support your being prepared and safe, so along with packing your original marshmallow toasting fork make sure to pack the other essentials- rope, warm clothes, extra food, etc. Always check trail conditions and weather before your departure and notify friends, family, or the trail managers of your plans. Packing will be easier if you know what is required for the trail, like bear canisters, and what is allowed in the area, such as lighting fires or gathering firewood. And if you’re planning any sort of hiking beyond trails of the nature walk variety make sure to have proper maps. The United States Geological Survey has topographical maps at Map Locator.

We suggest Backpacker magazine which recently featured articles focused on preparing for someone’s first camping trip. Check them out at First Night Out which explains packing, cooking, and more.

And remember, don’t forget your top-of-the-line marshmallow toasting fork and barbeque fork. Our customers rate the Rolla Roaster very highly. Check it out this recent feedback from customer Tom Olsen about the Folding Camping Fork...

Family Friendly Campfire Recipes

The "legs" of the octopus weiner curling up in the fire while toasting with a Rolla Roaster.

Planning a family camping vacation? Keep your kids happy after a long day of exploring the outdoors with some fun family-friendly campfire recipes. All you’ll need are the ingredients and Rolla Roasters, the original marshmallow toasting forks, to make your family’s camp cooking experience one to remember.

 Kids will love to eat this fun campfire treat- an octopus weiner toasted with a Rolla Roaster over the fire.Octopus Weiners

Ingredients: hot dogs or wieners

Cut one end of the hot dog eight times lengthwise while leaving the other end uncut. After you’re done you will have eight “octopus legs” and an uncut head.  Stick the wiener onto a Rolla Roster and toast over the coals until the ends curl up  like the tentacles of an octopus.

Toasted Banana Wraps

Ingredients: 2 large whole wheat tortillas, 1/4 c chocolate chips, 1 fresh banana

Mash a banana with a fork on one half of a tortilla then cover with the chocolate chips. Roll into a log-shape and stick onto the end of a Rolla Roaster. Lightly toast over the campfire.

(You can also use rehydrated freeze-dried bananas to lighten the load and decrease the potential for messy bananas).

Sugar Snake Bread

Ingredients:

Pack individually: 1 tsp rapid rise yeast, 1 T dried cranberries or cherries, 2 tsp vegetable oil, 1/4 c sugar, 1 T butter

In a Ziplock freezer bag: 1 c all-purpose flour, 1/4 c raisins, 1/2 tsp salt

Mix 1/2 tsp of sugar into 1/2 c warm water then add the yeast and let it sit for a few minutes until it becomes frothy and bubbly. Combine all of the ingredients in the freezer bag and knead the dough for about five minutes. (Make sure to remove all the air from the bag and seal it tightly). The dough is ready when the ingredients are all combined and it feels elastic. Divide into four equal pieces and roll into snake-like pieces. Wrap each “snake” around the end of a Rolla Roaster  and use the cranberries/cherries for eyes by pressing firmly into the dough. Bake over the coals for 10 to 15 minutes. When the “snakes” are golden remove them from the fire, butter them and sprinkle them with the sugar.

KOA CEO Recommends Rolla Roaster

Top marshmallow toasting fork according to KOA

According to Jim Rodgers, the CEO of Kampgrounds of America, the Rolla Roaster is “iPhone of s’more cooking.” In a recent Lunch and Learn event in Elko, Nevada, he said that the original marshmallow toasting “is technology.” KOA’s head honcho was using the Rolla Roaster as an example of the importance of focusing on the little things. (see the full article at KOA Recommendation )

Rolla Roaster handles

That focus on the littlethings has led to the creation of the best marshmallow toasting fork on the market, the Rolla Roaster. These top-of-the-line barbeque toasting forks are designed for comfort and easy usability. A rotisserie knob is set into a smooth wooden handle so that the two pronged cooking end can be turned with just the flick of a finger. The Rolla Roaster can telescope out to 42 inchese and packs down into 12 inches for easy carrying. You haven’t cooked on a campfire until you’ve cooked with a Rolla Roaster.
