I love S’mores. It’s not a secret. I’ve shared S’mores cookies, S’mores brownies and just plain S’mores on the site in the past. I’ve gone as far as to let my kid roast marshmallows with me over a candle in our family room floor (looking back, it really wasn’t my best idea – don’t try this at home!). There’s something about S’mores that screams “comfort”.
I’m a purest for the most part. Straight up marshmallow, chocolate and graham crackers. I don’t think you’ll see me trying the Reese’s Cup S’mores or any of the other candy filled creations floating around the web. I just want the old faithful campfire S’mores…. which brings us to the campfire part of the equation.
I’m a country girl. We had a lot of fires growing up. Sometimes in the fireplace, sometimes a wood stove, sometimes it was out back in a metal barrel. I learned how to build a fire a long time ago. I know that your wood has to be dry – it can’t be green and sappy – you’ll be fighting to get it started and fighting the whole time to get it going. I know that kindling is just as important as the logs you’re burning. Split wood burns better than full logs.
I could keep going.
The point is, while I can build a fire, sometimes I just don’t want to. If we’re simply sitting around the fire pit, Duraflame logs have always been a quick option for getting a fire going and keeping it going. It’s a simple as lighting the bag. But, I’ve never really been comfortable cooking over a Duraflame log… until now.
Duraflame has introduced a new product, Roasting Logs. Duraflame Roasting Logs come in a 4 pack, which is exactly what you need for a fire that will burn about 2-3 hours. You could split the package up if you wanted a smaller fire or one that would burn out quicker, but as a country girl, one of my favorite things is a big fire!
Duraflame Roasting Logs are made with real wood charcoal and have been tested for food safety, so you can roast your hot dogs, “bake” your potatoes and cook your campfire eggs over Duraflame Roasting Logs without wondering what chemicals you’re ingesting. Even the packaging is free of any crazy dyes and such.
Starting our fire was as easy as opening the package, stacking the logs and lighting the ends. It literally took about 60 seconds and I was done. Now, I can start a fire pretty quick, but it definitely takes more than 60 seconds to get it going and takes far longer to reach that nice, full fire stage than the Roasting Logs did.
What did we do with our Duraflame Roasting Log fire? We made S’mores of course!
I got our fire going, set up a little assembly line of sorts and we set out to make the ooey, gooey part of our S’mores. It doesn’t take but a few minutes of careful turning and we were putting together our S’mores.
Then the good part…
We were all happy, happy, happy! S’mores will do that to you. And with the ease of starting a fire fit for roasting anything with Duraflame Roasting Logs, you can have you happy faster and easier than before, all while knowing you’re not harming your family with food cooked over unsafe chemicals.
