    Possibly this should go in Shiny Things, but was not sure...

    I have no affillation or connection to this place. I just like good stuff that is made well and a company that stands behind their product. Something useful that someone dreamed up, thought out, went to the trouble to make, market and sell. I just think its neat.

    So anyways, one of the guys in our group had one and I just had to also have one. Its a Rolla Roaster. Which is an extendable hot dog or marshmellow fork.
    But it is well made, has its own pouch, collapses very short. It also has a knob on the handle which allows you to turn your meat or roatserie.

    When we ride and camp, we travel light, sometimes this is the only cooking utinsel I take (except for coffee pot). I'll take a good cut of steak, meybe a rib eye and cut it up into strips, marinate it, put in a zip lock bag. At then end of the day, put the meat on the Rolla and cook it over the fire. Mmmmmm,
    so good!! Takes a while to eat, but thats just part of camping and eating over an open fire.

    Anyways, my handle broke, sent it back in to RR and next week, got it back, fixed like new and no charge, they even paid the shipping back to me. Rollaroaster.com

    Anyways, I'm in AR and RR is in Washington or ID or somewhere, so I don't know them they don't know me and hope this is not too much of a shameless plug, but I just thought it was a good product I would share.

    What keeps the fork tines from just flipping down from the weight of the hot dogs?

    Hummmm, good question, not quite sure, but it all works. The handle has a little curled knob on the end, this is the rottisarie portion. I'm usually cooking steak strips and I usually put down a rock to piviot it on and another rock on the handle to hold it down and over the fire. I then reach down every now and then and give the collar a twist to cook the other side.

    Well, how much force does it take to flip the tines around for storage?

    Do you think it's strong enough to hold a bunch of full length (say, 18") sausage links, if they were packed on until the tines were full?

    18"? thats a bunch, sounds like several pounds.. Not too sure about that.

    Its pretty stout, but I find that meat, or steak cooks better if its not shoved completely together on the fork, better to leave a little space between each piece.

    The tines are pretty tight to flip around, they stay where you put them when cooking.

    The case is made where you could wear it on a belt, but I carry it in my pack.
