Step 1: Materails Needed
1 1/4″ x 48" round dowel – (makes 15 3-inch long pieces)
3/8″ x 36″ round dowel – need one for each stick
Drill and bits
Step 2: Stick Construction
Cut the 1 1/4″ round dowel into 3″ lengths
Lightly sand (bevel) the 3″ dowel pieces to remove and rough areas, and slightly round the edges
* I used a hand-held sander
Drill a 3/8″ hole in the center of the 3″ dowel piece about 2" deep
* I use a small drill press
Put a dab of wood glue in the drilled hole
Lightly coat the 3/8″ dowel with wood glue and slide it into the hole
Wipe off any excess wood glue
Allow the glue to dry over night
Step 3: Before Using Sticks
Before using your sticks for the first time, soak the big end of the stick in cooking oil for a few hours.
Spray big stick end with cooking spray between biscuit roastings
Step 4: Ingredients Needed for Campfire Biscuit Treats
Pillsbury Grand Jr refrigerator biscuits. Do not use Grand biscuits
Pudding (Vanilla, Chocolate, Butterscotch, etc)
Fruit Pie Filling
You can also use these delicious roasted biscuits to make campfire breakfast and dinner. Fill your roasted biscuit with:
Taco meat, tomatoes, lettuce and cheese
Ham and cheese
Chili, tomatoes and cheese
Sausage and scrambled eggs
Step 5: How to Make Campfire Biscuit Treats
Stretch biscuit over the big end of the stick
Step 6: Roasting
Roast biscuits over a fire until the outside is golden brown. To achieve a nice golden color and a more even cooking result, cook them directly over hot coals and not over a direct flame. I find that a direct flame burns the outside and leaves the inside somewhat raw.
Step 7: Ta-Da
Remove biscuit from the stick and fill with your favorite fillings
The recipes and concoctions are endless so get creative
