I personally have two distinct outdoor cooking memories.

First, the smell of steaks and ribs grilling on a Saturday evening. As the sun was setting in the beautiful, vibrant Florida summer sky, dad would fire up the grill while mom would whip up baked beans, potato salad, dessert, and sweet tea (I’m from the south…sweet tea is a must). Then, we’d spend time together eating dinner on the patio.

The other was the smell of bacon, eggs, and coffee over a campfire during our week-long summer camping trips. I loved waking up early to that smell and the mist on the lake.

Not only can outdoor cooking create amazing, mouth-watering dishes, it’s the memorable moments created – the meditative-time spent in nature while the food is cooking, kicking back a beer with friends, time spent playing with the kids while dinner is on the grill, or great dinner table conversations.

Concerned you’ll ruin dinner?

We all have at some point. Don't sweat it!

Have a pack of hotdogs on standby. If dinner doesn't turn out right, heat up some dogs and still enjoy your time together with friends and family.

Don't give up though. Try again next weekend!
