The most interesting man in the world - "I don't always camp, but when I do I "GLAMP"..."
That is exactly what I had seen previously. Thanks, Gabe. Is that your website? I can't believe I didn't catch these at the Pomona Expo. On Andy's suggestion I bought a couple of large dowels and will try the foil routine, but will probably pickup some pie-hole makers for our next trip.
All this talk about pie holes reminds me of the cornballer from Arrested Development.
Lets leave all our crap where it is and go live in the woods.
Orange Chocolate Cakes are good:
Cut the top off of a couple of oranges
Scoop out the flesh
Fill about 2/3rds with prepared chocolate (or whatever sounds good) cake batter
Wrap in foil
Toss in the coals until done
Eat with a spoon
Split bananas down the center, leaving peel on
Stuff with chocolate chips, peanut butter, marshmallows
Wrap in foil
Toss in the coals for about 5 minutes until warm and gooey
All this looks so good on this freezing and hungry too early morning in the Big Bend Desert!!! (why do I do this??? !).
Love those pie-holes!!! Never seen that before... will give it a try!
I do something called plainly "stuffed banana" (no brain surgery here...).
I don't think one even needs words to explain... only to put those stuffed bananas around the coals, need a good heat but not too hot! Also, make two per person and use a spoon... One is never enough. Peanut Butter chips also work well... walnut pieces... you name it!
Marshmallows on top of the chips works better and holds it all together... somehow!
A good 3-~40 minutes near by the coals...
Be well, Ara and Spirit

I like to make campfire donuts... just use the cheap biscuts from the store, stretch them to create a hole. Quick pan fry in hot oil, flip... and then toss them in a tupperware style container with powder sugar or your favorite topping/glaze.
I made some for my friends on a recent trip to the White Rim... I was crowned king of the campfood
However, you do need a oil recovery plan after the event.
I combined Overland Gourmet's and a similar Martha Stewart recipe for grilled peaches. Sauce 2-3 tbls brown sugar, 1/3 stick butter, 2 tbls (or cup, dealer's choice) tequila.
Grill open face down and baste skin with sauce. When you get good grill marks, flip and fill pit and face with sauce. When it bubbles in the pit, should be good to go. drizzle a little sauce into grill for nice flambe!
