    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.
