SALT LAKE CITY, UT -( CampMaid today announced its new Charcoal Chimney via Kickstarter.

The patent pending design utilizes a funnel airflow which rapidly heats the briquettes, getting charcoal hot and ready to cook quicker than regular methods.

A unique twist to heating charcoal for outdoor cooking, the portable, collapsible, one-piece chimney folds open to snap into place, and heats up to 40 charcoal briquettes at a time.

Traditional BBQ charcoal takes a long time to heat up. For situations that need small portable outdoor cooking systems for camping, backpacking, scouts, tailgating, etc. it’s inconvenient to pack a huge charcoal chimney to heat your charcoal.

This led to the invention of CampMaid’s Charcoal Chimney, which folds down to fit inside a 12” Dutch oven for compact storage and can be used for every BBQ or grill that uses charcoal.

Shipping November 15, 2016, customers who support the Kickstarter campaign can get the Charcoal Chimney at a discounted price of $25, MSRP is $40, and a chance to win free gear for being the first to back their launch.

CampMaid Charcoal Chimney Specs:

Rapidly heats charcoal for immediate outdoor cooking – No matter what kind of BBQ you use, charcoal takes too long to get hot.

  • The Charcoal Chimney’s unique air funnel design sucks up air, which is equally effective in strong windy environments allowing you to heat charcoal anywhere outdoors. The airflow creates a quick surge of powerful hot flames contained safely in the device, allowing you to start cooking much quicker.
  • Portable – The highly efficient design is a single lightweight piece that easily opens and snaps into place, and folds down to store inside your 12” Dutch oven. This is especially important for reducing the amount of gear you have to pack for outdoor cooking.
  • Versatile – The Charcoal Chimney can be used with any BBQ or grill, and it especially compliments the CampMaid Complete Outdoor Cooking System tools.
  • Heats 40 Charcoal Briquettes – While the Charcoal Chimney is compact and portable, it still heats up to 40 charcoal briquettes.
  • Heat-safe Handle – Many outdoor cooking products can be dangerous and cause burns so the heat-safe handle helps protect while being easy to hold, handle and manage – ultimately reducing the risk of injury around flames.
  • Cools down fast – The Charcoal Chimney cools down quickly after use allowing you to pack and store quickly
  • The Charcoal Chimney completes CampMaid’s Dutch Oven and BBQ grilling systems – For over 300 years the Dutch oven has been a staple of outdoor cooking. But beyond the standard baking function, it offered little in the way of variety.

CampMaid’s Complete Outdoor Cooking System inspires creative meals for outdoor cooking adventures, with accessories that convert any Dutch oven for smoking, grilling, baking, frying, steaming, a pizza oven, and leaves-no-trace in the environment.

The CampMaid system is versatile and portable, with all of its accessories fitting in the custom designed CampMaid 12” Dutch oven, and provides campers, scouts, tailgaters, hunters, beach-goers, river-runners, and especially emergency preppers a grab-and-go “outdoor kitchen-in-a-bag” solution.

“CampMaid’s passion for creating multi-functional, high-quality, outdoor cooking tools is endless,” says CampMaid founder and CEO Ken Yocum. “We take direct feedback from customers and implement ideas, suggestions, new concepts, and deliver what the customer wants with excellent service. We can’t wait to hear how our customers like the new Charcoal Chimney, which was inspired by many requests over the last year!”

The full CampMaid system and accessories are available now at

CampMaid’s cooking set and Dutch oven accessories are patented and patent-pending. The CampMaid system is multi-use, with accessories that easily convert for a variety of cooking methods.

“CampMaid’s outdoor cooking tools are like the Swiss Army Knife of grills,” says customer Jon Voyt. “It converts like a Transformer into so many different functions…the cooking possibilities are endless! Each piece is designed to be used independently or in conjunction with other accessories to provide a variety of cooking options.”

The CampMaid Combo System includes:

  • Lid Lifter – Featuring the patented Grab-and-hold design to securely lift the lid off the Dutch oven and hold it off the ground while keeping charcoals in place. It doubles as a serving stand and pot holder, and can be flipped over and converted into a griddle or skillet.
  • Charcoal Holder – A unique heat source which can be used under any Dutch oven to hold charcoals, it can be clasped under the CampMaid Lid Lifter to provide an adjustable heat source to the griddle created from the lid being flipped upside-down. The unique design safely contains the coals and mess, and leaves-no-trace.
  • Flip Grill – Simply clip the flip grill to the CampMaid Lid Lifter to create a grill and use the Charcoal Holder as a heat source, making campside BBQ’s easy and delicious. Add some wood chips to the Charcoal Holder and the Flip Grill/Charcoal holder combo becomes a portable smoker.
  • Kickstand – Lifts the lid off of the Dutch oven, safely dumping the charcoals into one spot and holds it off the ground to cool for convenient clean up and minimal trace.
  • Dutch Ovens – Pre-seasoned ready to cook, high quality Dutch ovens are custom designed to hold CampMaid tools inside, comes in 8”, 10”, 12” sizes, with a convenient pouring tab. Easy storage in the CampMaid tool bags and is the core of the entire CampMaid cooking system.
  • New Charcoal Chimney – Portable, collapsible, one-piece, lightweight, heat-safe handle, quickly heats up to 40 pieces of charcoal briquettes for outdoor cooking, and quickly cools down for safety and storage.
  • Carry Bag – Sturdy with large handles, the bag carries your CampMaid Dutch Oven, Lid Lifter, Charcoal Holder, Flip Grill, Kickstand, and the new Charcoal Chimney.
