We bought something similar called "wompum sticks". I can't remember where we got them but when we tried it we couldn't get the dough to cook right. We may have been using the wrong biscuits. I think we shall try this again. Looks good.

Just roast them over hot coals like you would a marshmallow. Keep smoothing out the dough as you cook it. Take your time with them. They take longer than marshmallows. Toast a spot, then rotate it to the other spots until they are golden brown.

Hey, Gator. I think I must have done something wrong. I had to go into town for a part for my dish and a water run. I was really excited about trying a "woofems". KMIW When the day is winding down and you get a little itch in the gullet for something or other, but you don't want to dirty a pan just for a couple tablespoons of leftovers.

So "woofems" have been on the brain.

I picked up what they had at the grocery there. It was a Grands Homestyle Southern Biscuit. That's the right kind isn't it? The ones where you peel back some of the paper and knock it on a hard surface and the thing explodes, right?

They went over the dowel alright, but as soon as they started turning brown they started to fall off in layers into the fire. Is there something else you need to do to keep keep them together? I figured a store dough wouldn't take much heat so I kept a medium low set of coals, danged if I could keep them on the stick.

Yep, that's what happened to us. We tried a couple of brands with the same result. They did brown up nicely when they hit fire though.:-)

We call them Campfire Canolis! They get better as the sticks become seasoned, yum, although we use plain Pillsbury Crescent Rolls. We'll have to try the biscuits.

I recommend Don't use flakey biscuits. The cheaper the better. Also get the Small ones that are like 8 or 10 per tube, not jumbo size.

CampingGator thanks for the idea and strat56 thanks for that link,

the link shows exactly how to make them, but what about this:

we have the original two prong long-handled metal camping forks for roasting marshmallows and hotdogs, I'm thinking of trying this: ......getting just the large 1 1/4" wooden dowel, make the pieces, drill a smaller hole that would be a firm press fit onto the prongs and using the metal camping fork for the handle...... If that doesn't work I can always enlarge the small hole, buy the wooden dowels and go that route........ If that does works, it can make two at a time, but also might need to drill the small hole off center a little to separate the two wooden pieces enough to allow two biscuits to cook without swelling into each other................anyway, thanks for the idea

Did you ever get it sorted? I'm no biscuit guru, but not ready to give up just yet.

What kind isn't a flaky biscuit? I saw the Pillsbury Grand ones that say "flaky" in the name, so I got the other ones, but yeah.. as soon as they started browning it was a lost cause.

looks like the biscuits falling off is a real problem and that's easy to see how they could, with nothing there to keep that from happening. ..... Skewers!......short stainless steel skewers stuck thru the dough, into a small drilled hole, drilled across the wooden piece. That would prevent falling off, would be removed before pulling the biscuit off and would only leave a small hole in both sides of the biscuit cup.......The skewers that I've found on Amazon range from 10" to 12" and could be easily cut in half, because full length is too long to mess with, mainly because I'll be trying this idea with the two prong campfire fork idea that I mentioned in post #17 above.
