With Winter 2015 Outdoor Retailer Show just around the corner my email box starts getting flooded with press releases from every imaginable manufacturer in the outdoor space. OR is the Holy Grail for outdoor enthusiasts. If you want to make a go of it as a manufacturer of anything in the outdoor sandbox you have GOT to be there. It’s where things get discovered, new products are announced, and seasoned vendors unveil the Next & Best.

Today I rec’vd a press release from a new company that will be at OR for the first time.  They have created a self-contained, all-wood, single-use charcoal grill. It’s called a “Burnie” and you can bet this thing is going to go viral. It’s one of those, “That’s so kewl! Why didn’t I think of that!” kind of things.



 “Burnie’s ingenious construction is borrowed from the ancient Nordic technique for burning wood stumps. This method has been used for centuries, unleashing powerful, portable fire that lights with one match, and ignites evenly and burns for hours.”

-Meghan van Joosten,

Talk about EASY to impart the natural smokiness of Alder wood into marshmallows, kebabs, fresh salmon, or simply have a portable little campfire for a small Metro Jack & Jane urban get-together!


The Burnie comes in two sizes.  A large retails for 14.95 and a medium will set you back about the price of two Starbucks Venti Green Tea Creme Frappacinos.

Yeah, this thing is pretty much going to tear it up out there.
