And here’s why:
One day in recent history, two guys (it had to be two, I’m just positive of it) were sitting around or maybe poking around in a garage somewhere talking about roasting marshmallows. Together, they decided that what the world really needs is a super cool marshmallow roasting machine.
So they gathered up some scrap aluminum and built it. This thing was used at several scouting events until the owner’s wife said GET RID OF IT and my husband bought it for $5. I thought it was so cool I told him to give the guy another $5 because I feel like we stole it!
The eyes light up!
This is a pin that holds the marshmallow to the moving chain.
So you put your marshmallow on that pin and it moves through the Marshmallow Devil’s mouth and travels on back to where the fire is…it moves slowly so it cooks perfectly but doesn’t catch on fire because it’s too far from the coals. In theory, anyway. I haven’t seen this thing in action yet.
The marshmallow would be moving toward you on the top and away from you on the bottom.
The tubes behind the horns hook up to a smoke machine!
I’m sorry, I just think this thing is super cool. And I’m not even crazy about marshmallows (although they are infinitely better after they’ve been roasted). I am so glad Steve saw this and told the guy he wanted it.
When he came home and told me he’d bought a marshmallow roaster I thought he had lost his mind, but as soon as I saw this in the guy’s driveway I understood exactly why he had to have it. As a matter of fact, I’m not exactly sure how we’ve managed to live happily without it.
