We started having “Fish & S’mores” every Saturday evening after the passing of a good fried back in the spring. We would fish till dark then do a bon fire and roast marshmallows and Krispy Kreme donuts and hotdogs. The store bought roasting sticks were too short and was roasting us as much as it was what was on the other end of the stick. Reg coat hangers were too flimsy. So I came up with these. They are perfect. Made from scrap oak strips, these are 52” long and are 5/8” x 1 1/8” and rounded over all the edges. Also drilled a 1/2” hole in the handle to hang them up. Also dipped the handles in Plastic Dip for a really comfortable rubber grip handle. On the business end I drilled a 7/64” hole and cut 6” pieces of coat hangers to push into the holes to roast with. It the end needs to be replaced just pull the coat hanger barn out and push in a new one. It’s nice to be able to sit in a chair and roast a hotdog or whatever and not roast myself too.

Great sticks! Consider Stainless Steel welding rod for the business end and you’ll never have rust or replacement issues. I used 1/8 inch on my first ones but it was too small so I went up one size (9/64 or 5/32 I think) and they work great!

These are great to have for a bon fire. I’ll be using one tonight. I agree with not burning yourself. Good job.
