Out of the Blue

The other day I mentioned I was facing the temptation to head out into the wilds of the backyard and fire up the man-stove to satisfy my prehistoric need for scorched meat. In an effort to show me the error of my ways, a wave of arctic air has invaded our area, along with much of the country, and it is shockingly cold out there, at least for those of us not used to the kind of climate one finds in Siberia or Minnesota. This has definitely cooled my enthusiasm, so to speak... I wonder what sort of outcome I could get with one of those electric George Foreman dealies. Yeah, probably not.

How bout making an open fire grill? You would need dry wood and a nice secluded place on the ground. But the upshot is that it gets really really warm while youre cooking

The downside of cooking stuff over an open fire is that you have absolutely no control over the temperature, and imo that just leads to having to guess at how well done (or not) your meat really is.

Better yet, invest in a proper brick layed or stone built stove. To those who dont know what Im talking about its like a fireplace with its own chimney, but outside the house, and about a meter off the ground. This is to me one of the crowning achievements of mankind and every large yard should have one by default.

Building an outdoor oven is on my list for either this year or next.
