Duraflame Campfire Roasting Logs are being offered as a cleaner burning alternative to a traditional outdoor wood fire. According to the company, the logs produce 60 percent less particulate emissions than an equivalent wood fire in a fire pit.
And a robust fire can be built using 75 percent less resources than using firewood for a similar duration, while producing more heat per pound. Recycled sawdust, renewable bio-wax and real wood charcoal make up the 100 percent renewable roasting logs, says the company.
They are claimed to be the first firelogs formulated with charcoal and tested for safe cooking. This new formula makes the logs ideal for roasting foods, such as marshmallows or hot dogs, over an open fire.
“Firelogs designed for outdoor roasting are something our consumers have long anticipated. We are thrilled to offer campfire roasting fire logs that are also a cleaner burning, convenient and more efficient alternative to a wood fire,” said Chris Caron, VP of Brand Development for Duraflame, Inc.
Building a Campfire Roasting Logs fire involves stacking two or three logs and lighting the wrappers. The ideal time for roasting is after about 45 minutes when the fire has turned into glowing coals.
The burn time can be extended by adding more logs to the hot coals. A five-pound bundle of four logs is ideal for one campfire, or a case of six bundles is enough for four to six campfires. The one-campfire bundle is equivalent to burning 24 pounds of firewood, giving people a more portable option for camping trips.
Duraflame Campfire Roasting Logs are available at select Walmart, Kmart and Kroger stores, as well as retailers throughout the U.S. The suggested retail price for a four-log bundle is $5.99. The six-bundle case sells for around $29.99.
