Camping Life 2010 Gear Guide

Just received Camping Life magazine's annual "Gear Guide" and was very pleased to see that both our Marshmallow Tree and Kebab'n Grill made the cut.

The Kebab'n Grill is new for 2010 and it's a beauty for those that want to bring a grill that uses charcoal or wood to a picnic or camping trip. Portable gas/fuel grills have their place, but there's something to be said for cooking over a flame made by briquets.

Our folding grill converts from a traditional grill with a grid to a kebab grill and comes with 6 kebab skewers. Packs in a storage case to 10.5" x 16" x 2.25".
