The solid wood cooking head is perfect for cooking Womp'Em biscuits (Pillsbury Grand biscuits). Once they have been roasted till they’re golden brown, have fun filling them up with your favorites… ice cream, fresh berries with whipped cream, pie filling, bacon and eggs, or even a hotdog! It’s an easy, fun campfire activity for everyone."
