Episode-1773- Outdoor Cooking, Grilling, Smoking and More

Grilled Salted Steak - Just One Thing You'll Learn About Today!

Grilled Salted Steak – Just One Thing You’ll Learn About Today!

This is yet another Tuesday show chosen by an audience poll.  It also wraps up Tuesday shows for April.  But remember you still have until May 3rd to vote on May’s Tuesday “Just Jack” shows.

Today we talk about one of my favorite things, cooking and doing it out doors.  If I took a guess I would say I generally cook out doors about 4-5 days a week on average year round.  Yes even in the cold of winter!  There are weeks in the summer when I cook outside almost every day for weeks on end.

Why?  The keys to me are

  • Flavor nothing beats grilling or smoking
  • Recreation I just enjoy it
  • Not heating up the house
  • Space we have a nice but small kitchen

In fact when we lived in Pennsylvania for three years neighbors thought I was a bit wacky standing on a snow covered deck with the weber smoking away.

Again it is just my preferred way to cook.

Join Me Today to Discuss…

  • Why is this a survival topic
    • You have to eat
    • It is “off grid cooking”
