I BBQ all winter. Why let a bit of snow and cold stop you from cooking outside?

If you make a campfire, do it early enough to cook over and you will be toasty while cooking. If you bbq, start a fire with quick burning wood to get some coals, then put in some good cooking wood for meal prep. We use Coastal Red Oak in our area to cook with in the open flame fire ring/pit.

The George Foreman grill comes in handy for steaks. I also like to cook a whole pork butt in a crockpot. I inject small amounts of liquid smoke into the meat a few times during the cooking process. I cook the pork long enough that the meat almost falls apart. It comes out tasting great and fork tender.

In addition to the slow cooker we use a George Forman grill. Perfect for just about anything you can put on the grill outside; fish, steaks, burgers, chops....also use a toaster oven for baked potatoes, biscuits, pastries and a Panini maker which turns a regular ham and cheese into a great hot sandwich.

Slow cooker for pulled pork or pulled beef brisket... get either a pork shoulder or butt put in cooker w/ a 1/2" of water and a little bit of BBQ sauce. Let cook all day, it will be falling apart. When done, get meat out of pot or drain water/juice out. Pull butt, shoulder or brisket apart using 2 forks. Add BBQ sauce and let simmer another half hour. We use Sticky fingers carolina sweet sauce. Yummy!!! Or you could do a beef stew in the cooker (prep it at home, bring it with you and cook it when ready). A lasagna in the oven (stouffers takes away the need to make it!). We still grill at home or in the camper year round. In fact we had lobster tails on the grill christmas eve at home. Chili is good and warming. Sloppy joes are easy. What about salad night or taco night. Baked mac and cheese anyone? Or grilled cheese and tomato soup.

Unless wind is really blowing we still use our gas grill mounted on the side of the trl while camping. Here at the house in the winter shovel the snow off the deck and still fire up the grill. Grilled Prime Rib for Christmas, and Shrimp and Sea Scallops for New Years.

I'm with rattleNsmoke. Chili - lots of it, plenty of beans, any veggies in the freezer, a pound of whatever meat we have (looking for some venison for the next batch) peppers, onions... whatever spices are in the front of the spice cabinet (I do not recommend cinnamon... it tasted OK, but I have yet to hear the end of it) good chili powder, crock pot on high for 4 hours. Make the house smell nice too.
