Yeah, lets hear more about the pizza on the grill! There is a guy on the wood stove forum that cooks steaks inside his wood stove in a cast iron skillet. That also sounds good. Will be trying that one this winter.

As to the OP: Last year I spent $2000 on a generator, an interlock switch, other parts, and an electrician to hook it up. The generator has TruFuel in it, was just run yesterday, and is all set to rock & roll. I guarantee you the power will NEVER go out again at our house.

My prepps came in really handy last weekend. Me and I friend were "preparing" for deer season and cleaned out two tower stands. We cautiously approached the stands with wasp spray and a machete. We took out several wasp nests the size of paper plates that looked they were covered in humming birds. We also killed a small cottonmouth.

I know that is not what was meant by preping, but our being proactive keep us from climbing into a stand in the early morning dark and then having to bail out really quick 20ft in the air. Which is metephorically the point of preping in the first place.

I have grilled pizza and it is pretty easy. I would think it would be easier than a birthday cake on the BBQ!

Big ice storm. No power for 18 days. Coleman lanterns and kerosene heaters.

It was that storm that prompted us to buy a kerosene heater, that and my wife grew up with wood heat in an old farmhouse, electric furnace doesn't keep the house warm enough for her.

One time, I was hungry, so I went downstairs and grabbed a can of peaches.

yes sir used to do it on charcoal before I owned gas , no biggy just a little harder to control the temp thats all and make sure all your charcoal is burnt up if you used lighter fluid , I would say to use a charcoal chimney starter if your going to cook pizza on it that way no chance of lighter fluid taste

Geeze, you guys are gonna get this thread shut down if people start the charcoal vs. gas barbecue argument! That's as bad as Glock vs. 1911!









PS: Charcoal or natural wood fired is the only way to go!!!!!
