Expedition Tongs are made to handle your barbeque, braai and campfire needs: hauling a huge log to a roasting pig, flipping over a beautifully grilled steak or arranging charcoal on the lid of a Dutch oven. But the uses don’t stop at the campfire ring. Take a look at a few other ideas of how your Expedition Tongs can come in handy both at home and on the road.
