It's not sposed to catch on fire... you're sposed to roast it gently so that it's all soft and gooey through to the center. ;)

There was a distinct hazard about being too impatient to take a bite while the marshmallow was still hot enough to blister your mouth. :LOL:

Yep! Our camping s'mores was to have the graham crackers and slice of chocolate ready, then slide those soft and melted gooey marshmallows in between, let them melt, and enjoy. :yum:
 
Back in grade school I saw a kid take a flaming marshmallow directly to the eye socket around a camp fire. Nobody ever found out who flung it off of the end of their stick...I still can see the image of him running with his eye on fire....
 
I hate toasting marshmallows over a fire. Just when you have it two seconds away from being PERFECT, it goes up in flames. :mad:

S'mores are like Twinkies to me. Tried one, and that was enough. Just not my thing.

I do like campfire cooked hot dogs.

In my lifelong experience with campfires, I did make "filet of sole" more than a few times. That's when You get your feet too close to the campfire, for a little too long. :rolleyes:

Usually buy Nathans or HN, but Penn Dutch has several house made dogs of which I prefer the "Red Hots". To be honest though, I prefer grilled hot Italian sausages with grilled onions, bell peppers, provolone and mustard.

I no longer eat buns, but I still like a hot dog from time to time. The local grocer here also owns a meat packing company, so they sell their own hot dogs. I like them. They're thick with a natural casing. More like a quality sausage than a wimpy little Oscar Meyer dog.

If I'm not at home, I usually buy Old Wisconsin brand when I can find them. Otherwise Nathan's hot dogs are pretty passable, too.

I make a dish that uses stewed tomatoes, onions, garlic and hot sauce. You split (without cutting them in half) the hotdogs length wise, brown on both sides in a little oil and set aside. You then cook the onions and garlic in the same pan until softened, add the tomatoes, hot sauce, hotdogs and simmer for about 10 minutes. I think it is pretty good.
 
I have a new favorite. I bought a pack on sale, and loved them. They are big, and they just taste really good.

We tried a new to us brand tonight. Some sort of Angus beef hot dogs. It's a local, artisanal brand - Ça va barder! They were very tasty.
 
Locally, we prefer Deutschmacher hot dogs, one of the many brands under the Kayem beach umbrella. Natural casing, please. However, our favorite dogs are not a brand name. When we're back home, we always make sure that one of the meals I fix involves the hand-made smoked hot dogs from our favorite Amish country butcher, Winesburg Meats. I remember going down there with my Dad and Mom once a year. Dad found out about it from another bread delivery driver, one who worked for Nickles Bakery. The butcher was only 12 miles from the bakery - not far when you consider the bakery was already 55 miles from our home!
 
I make my own hotdogs. I use sheep casing. Triple grind them. If I do not make my own, there is a local brand here in the SF Bay Area called Evergood. Really good hot dogs and their hot link sausages are really good.
