Yes, that's the thingy. We only have the one that my neighbor brought us. Sounds like we'll need a few more.

We love to have a late breakfast or brunch in ours. Pre-brown some sausage, add egg, cheese, or whatever you like. Instead of bread, we use crescent rolls (the kind that come in a refrigerated tube).

For a good dessert, use crescent rolls, and either chocolate or cinnamon chips. Yumm.

But really, you can put in just about anything that you want and it comes out great. Breakfast, lunch or dinner menus. Just check the done-ness several times as you are holding over the fire, because a burned treat is no treat at all! Enjoy!
You are making me hungry, too!!! Do you put the iron directly in the fire or over the fire? And how do you know the food is done?

That is really cool! And I wouldn't have to crouch over the fire rotating the meat and singeing my arm hair!

Cook hot dogs or marshmallows on it. It's for the kids...looks like a fishing pole with a lure and can cook 4 marshmallows at one time.

Yuuuummmmmmm!!!!! I have so much to learn!

I use one on a tripod. You can get them anywhere but here's one from Dick's:

We put our pie irons on the fire pit grill if it has one, most do. How hot your fire is will depend on how long you need till you to turn them. Open them often to check how done they are. If you use a spray oil they will open easily.

The trick for the pie iron is to season them when you first buy them
