I’ve seen this done (well photos in my caterer’s portfolio) but they didn’t use sterno (I’ve always thought that was a health hazard too), they had a special set up with cooking gas. The only way to get golden s’mores is with a (less intense heat) yellow flame or coals. Any way to use a grill instead?

I’m not sure about the sterno part but I’ve seen this poem from another bee on here (ChellC) a long time ago. I saved it when we were originallty thinking of doing an edible favor.


S’more laughs,

S’more hugs,

S’more kisses,

S’more falling in love,

S’more time spent together,

S’more memories we’ve made,

But most of all we are happiest to say,

We have S’more family & friends to love today

Excellent questions. Talk to your caterer and venue and see what they are able to arrange since they are professionals.

I’m not usually one for poems but that one is cute.

We used the firepit on our venue’s patio for our s’mores bar so not certain if sterno is safe or not…I’ve never cooked with it, I thought it was only for heating.

Sterno FAQ seems to say that it is not recommended, not because of the chemicals but because food can drip into the flame and cause flare-ups.

Obviously it’s too late for advice, but this sounds AWESOME! I would love having a smore bar at a wedding!

Does anyone know what the cost of having a smores bar is?? ive been trying to find ways of pulling it off for 100 people or so. It seems to be budget friendly but i cant find any actual numbers?
