The campfire is an essential part of the camping experience, as is mourning the loss of countless marshmallows and hot dogs that slide to their doom due to unstable spits. The needless destruction of so many fire-roasted foods doesn't have to be part of the outdoor experience. While scouring the surrounding area for a branch or twig will never be completely abandoned, there is another way.

The Auspit Fire Fishin' Pole is a camping gadget that combines necessity (as s'mores are mandatory) with fun. Meant to resemble a fishing pole, the fire pit accessory allows you to efficiently roast food over an open fire. With an H-shaped set of skewers that is constructed from stainless steel, the device is a sturdy platform on which to attach food. And when it is time to flip the food, food-fishers need only give it a tug.

The weighted mechanism that allows for the flip has another benefit also: no more burnt fingers from fiddling with food. Burnt tongues from being unable to wait for the food to cool down however, well, some camping traditions will never go away.
