Guide Review - Grill Thing Hot Dog Holder
Per the instructions, I squeezed the prongs just a little while putting on a hot dog. When I let go, the tension of the prongs expanding, along with the flared ends, kept the hot dog in place. No longer did I have to hunt for a fallen tree branch to sharpen. The Grill Thing fits on almost any wood stick. I don't like cutting down tree limbs at the campground, so I used some fat dowel rods that I bought at a hardware store beforehand. I soaked these in a bucket of water before attaching a Grill Thing to the wet end. I reasoned that being wet would help to prevent the sticks from burning when used over the campfire.
When the hot dogs and marshmallows were done the Grill Thing was quite hot so I used a fork to scrape them off onto a plate. The Grill Thing easily wiped off with a paper towel at the campsite. I still gave them a bath in the dishwasher when we returned home, and they were good as new and ready for the next campfire. This is a handy gadget that is great for camping. You can buy them online at Grill Thing.
