Campfire Classics

Is it even summer in Minnesota until you’ve sat around a fire and roasted a marshmallow, made a pudgy pie or slow roasted a hot dog? Nope, we didn’t think so either. In the event you’re looking to bring a little more gourmet to your game, we’ve got some ideas we think will be instant hits.

Pepperoni Pizza Pudgy Pies

Could be the nostalgia, could be the delicious simplicity, or something else entirely, but there’s no denying that eating a pudgy pie—sweet or savory—under a blanket of stars is the quintessential summer experience.

Campfire S'mores Foil Packs

It’s everything you love about a s’more, and then some! We’re talking fudgy brownies, melty chocolate, ooey-gooey marshmallows, and of course, graham crackers, with the added excitement of peanut butter and all the Reddi-wip your heart desires!

Montreal Steakhouse Burger

The humble beauty of this burger stays with you long after the last bite, with Cub Montreal Seasoned Pub Burgers, crispy fried onions, and crumbled blue cheese take center stage.

Salsa Crunch Burger

Cub Jalapeno & Cheese Pub Burgers bring the bite to this stacked handheld. Top with a scoop of your favorite jarred salsa and tortilla chips for that satisfying crunch.

Summer Must-Try: Spiralized Hot Dogs

There’s really no wrong way to make a hot dog.

But there is one way to make them extra yummy, crispy, and prime for toppings. Here’s how to make the perfect grilled spiralized hot dog:

  1. Insert a skewer the entire length of the frank.
  2. Hold a paring knife at an angle and twirl the hot dog, cutting down to the skewer.
  3. Remove the skewer and admire your handy work.
  4. Grill over medium high heat, turning occasionally.
