Cthulhu: Eater of Souls, Roaster of Dogs

RoastMyWeenie has a limited number of Cthulhu(/Punisher) roaster’s available for purchase.


Cthulhu: Eater of Souls, Roaster of Dogs

A while ago, I wrote about some pretty funny / cool hot dog roasters sent to me from the folks at roastmyweenie.com.

Work well enough, and pretty amusing, but not exactly practical for even a modest sized cook.

I really wanted a roaster that could hold more than one dog. After thinking about it a bit, dawned on me that some creature with tentacles would be perfect and easy enough to cut on roastmyweenie’s water jet based cutter.

Now, I could have a gone with a squid based design as they will, in fact, eventually rule the living world.

But, nah….

Cthulhu: Eater of Souls, Roaster of Dogs

Then it hit me! Cthulhu! Perfect! Tentacled devourer of souls and bastion of chaos would be perfect for roasting dogs!

We went back and forth a bit on designs, eventually settling on the one you see here. It looks a bit more Punisher-esque in steel than the original designs on paper. But suckers on bendy tentacles are hard to water-cut and don’t really lend themselves well to roasting dogs anyway.

It works brilliantly, to. Plenty of support for th dogs, keeps them nicely off the grill surface, and looks pretty damned chaotic evil sitting on the grill hissing away as little bits of grease shoot out of the ends of the dog to spatter and explode on the hot food grade steel.

Completely kicks ass. For the moment, it is unique. This is what it looks like before being bent into shape.

I’m sure that if you were to contact the folks at Roast My Weenie, they might make a few more.

(I also really like their Dog Cooker design).

Byron from Roast My Weenie also posted this video to YouTube of the Cthulhu weenier roaster being cut on their Water-Jet cutter.

    I’d really like to spend a few hours with a water cutter to see how it does on stained glass.

    Those dogs are being punished!

    Fun fun. Now I have to go insane…

  6. idyllicchick says:

    Great idea, but that’s the Punisher logo. He’s not even related to Cthulhu.

  7. bbum says:

    It kind of morphed into Punisher when cut from steel. The initial designs were more cthulhu-esque, but suckers on tentacles don’t translate to cut steel well.

    That is so not Cthulhu. You should just say its the punisher.

    The head is all wrong for Cthulhu. You could still make the tenticles thin like you did but get the head right if you are going to call it Cthulhu.

    May Yog-Sothoth feat on your soul for this outrage.

  14. Dan says:

    The thin tentacles are ok, cause when loaded w/ hot dogs, it has the proper tentacleiness.
    The skull face, however, doesn’t look so chtulhuey.

    You could also do one like Davey Jones from Pirates. (*ducks*)

    I think it’s a particularly cool design and would personally love to grab one. Even showed it off to [my] Bill, but of course he said, “what, you want to scare Abbey out of ever eating hotdogs again?”

  24. syndicatenerd says:

    you know what guys? the concept is awesome, even if it wasn’t done quite to all of your specifications. i’d like to see you do a better job. And Yog-Sothoth? Go ahead “feat” on my soul. I hope you choke.

    Ha. I visited your site thinking it was a dog blog…not this kind of dog! Still, those hot dog cookers look cool. I’d totally use one of those.

  32. Jeff Wilkins says:

    Oh my god, punisher hot dog roaster… pure awesomeness!

  33. Taylor says:

    I think the design is cool…hahaa…though it has this design which look like a comic character, Punisher, but nevertheless, its pretty unique to hold hot dogs n grill together….

  34. Joe says:

    The pictures are really funny, what a thing to design as well. Be great to have with a few friends over and have a good laugh about it.

  35. Andrew says:

    how much would it cost to have you make me a punisher hotdog roaster like that? shoot me an e-mail we’ll work out a deal

  36. Jason S. says:

    The punisher dog cooker looks sick – another good idea would be to have a Wolverine hot dog roaster – six claws six dogs :)
