Outdoor Retailer Announces CampMaid’s New Charcoal Chimney as the “Light My Fire” Award Winner

October 11, 2016

Salt Lake City, Utah – The Outdoor Retailer announces CampMaid’s new Charcoal Chimney as the “Best-in-Show Light My Fire Award” winner. CampMaid created a firestorm of excitement at the Summer OR Show by unveiling the hottest new portable Charcoal Chimney which rapidly heats charcoal for outdoor cooking.

CampMaid Charcoal Chimney Specs: 

  • Rapidly heats charcoal for immediate outdoor cooking – No matter what kind of BBQ you use, charcoal takes too long to get hot. The Charcoal Chimney’s unique air funnel design sucks up air, which is equally effective in strong windy environments allowing you to heat charcoal anywhere outdoors. The airflow creates a quick surge of powerful hot flames contained safely in the device, allowing you to start cooking much quicker.
  • Portable – The highly efficient design is a single lightweight piece that easily opens and snaps into place, and folds down to store inside your 12” Dutch oven. This is especially important for reducing the amount of gear you have to pack for outdoor cooking.
  • Versatile – The Charcoal Chimney can be used with any BBQ or grill, and it especially compliments the CampMaid Complete Outdoor Cooking System tools.
  • Heats 40 Charcoal Briquettes – While the Charcoal Chimney is compact and portable, it still heats up to 40 charcoal briquettes.
  • Heat-safe Handle – Many outdoor cooking products can be dangerous and cause burns so the heat-safe handle helps protect while being easy to hold, handle and manage – ultimately reducing the risk of injury around flames.
  • Cools down fast – The Charcoal Chimney cools down quickly after use allowing you to pack and store quickly
