Besides grilling outdoors, perhaps the other great pleasure that life has to offer would be travel. If you can travel in an RV, camper, or trailer, bringing your home with you as you hop from lake to campground to urban RV park, then all the better. Here are a few grilling ideas for those of you who like to do a lot of traveling:
- Baked Potatoes
Potatoes make a great road staple for your daily starch because they hold so well in all sorts of temperatures. It’s very hard to make potatoes spoil. Poke a potato all the way through with a fork on both sides, wrap in foil, and bake on the grill until you can poke a fork into the potato without having to force it. Throw some butter, bacon, chives, or whatever you like on there and you have a great side dish.
- Bacon and Eggs
Is there anything better in the morning, when you’re camping out, than the smell of bacon and eggs frying in the great outdoors? Don’t even bother spicing this one up. Just keep a skillet on hand, fry them up, add a little salt and pepper, and serve.
- Campground Coffee
Get a kettle, boil some water in it on the grill with the coffee grinds right in it, and add a couple of rinsed egg shells to absorb the excess bitterness. Take it off the grill and let it sit for about five minutes. This will give it time to brew and the grinds time to settle. Pour slowly and you have authentic cowboy coffee.
Cooking outdoors is a lot of fun, especially when you mix travel and camping with fresh grilled breakfast, lunch, dinner … and every snack in between!
