    I use a 4' long 3/8 rerod with a couple of nails welded to the end of a piece of angle iron bent and cut to shape:

    This is my new addition to my fire pokes. It is a garden cultivator welded to the end of rerod.

    I have been camping for over 50 years. I can't believe I got by with no fire poking stick.

    I use a Coleman folding camp shovel to move logs, stoke fire, and prep coals for cooking.

    Any stick that is burning belongs completely in the fire ring to be burnt.
    I am usually telling my DS to quit poking the fire with a stick. He likes to poke the fire and watch the end of his stick burn. Then leave it unattended so it can fall out of the fire ring and cause problems.

    Best poking stick ever. Not leaving it behind.

    NOW I finally know what to do with a random piece of bent rebar found out by the parking lot. It was a pokin' stick all along, just looking for a new home.

    My husband blacksmiths as a hobby, so we use iron pokers he makes. Comes in handy to have a poker maker in the family!
