New Charcoal Chimney from CampMaid Takes Outdoor Cooking to New Level

Paul Pinkerton

The patent pending design utilizes a funnel airflow which rapidly heats the briquettes, getting charcoal hot and ready to cook quicker than regular methods.

A unique twist to heating charcoal for outdoor cooking, the portable, collapsible, one-piece chimney folds open to snap into place, and heats up to 40 charcoal briquettes at a time.

Traditional BBQ charcoal takes a long time to heat up. For situations that need small portable outdoor cooking systems for camping, backpacking, scouts, tailgating, etc. it’s inconvenient to pack a huge charcoal chimney to heat your charcoal.

This led to the invention of CampMaid’s Charcoal Chimney, which folds down to fit inside a 12″ Dutch oven for compact storage and can be used for every BBQ or grill that uses charcoal.

Shipping November 20, 2016, customers who support the Kickstarter campaign can get the Charcoal Chimney at the lowest available Kickstarter early bird rate of $25 (retail value $40). Several other backer award levels are available, ranging from $12-$200 to fit any budget and a chance to win free gear for being the first to back their launch.

For over 300 years the Dutch oven has been a staple of outdoor cooking. But beyond the standard baking function, it offered little in the way of variety. CampMaid’s Complete Outdoor Cooking System inspires creative meals for outdoor cooking adventures, with accessories that convert any Dutch oven for smoking, grilling, baking, frying, steaming, a pizza oven, and leaves-no-trace in the environment reports prnewswire

The CampMaid system is versatile and portable, with all of its accessories fitting in the custom designed CampMaid 12″ Dutch oven, and provides campers, scouts, tailgaters, hunters, beach-goers, river-runners, and especially emergency preppers a grab-and-go “outdoor kitchen-in-a-bag” solution.
