My grill pan just isn't the same, and I'm not about to go drag the grill out when it's 0 degrees outside!

I do use use the cook top and a pan quite a bit as well, though.

There are some recipes where you could adopt another way of cooking. We take recipes that call for cooking in the oven and cook it on the smoker. The smoker isn't anything but an outdoor oven. An oven in which you can add smoke for additional flavor if you like.

And you can cook so many things in your outdoor oven too.

Pizza, desserts, to name a couple.

We have cooked crown roast of lamb, chicken, prime rib, tenderloins, london broil, turkey, pork chops, potatoes, desserts on our grill and or smoker.

Another good oven to cook in is a cast iron dutch oven.

Handy Husband used to make cakes in one of these on camping trips when he was a Boy Scout leader.

Our favorite cooked in the dutch oven is pineapple upside down cake.
I need to practice and learn to make bread in them.

oh man 'bug, you just reminded me of a scout trip out west when i was a kid. i went to philmont in new mexico, and our guide was this tiny litlle wirey guy that we all teased because he was smaller than us, at our ripe old age of 13. actually, we probably would have teased him even if he was john wayne, because we were 13 or so.
but after guiding us out of base camp for a few days, we were all worn out from the 10 mile per day hikes with full packs, but the guide (i think we knicknamed him "chisum") kept going strong. then, on his last night with us, he pulls a full sized cast iron dutch oven out of his pack, and made us a peach cobbler from some cans of peaches he also carried. we were all amazed at how heavy his pack was, and stopped teasing him as we devoured the best cobbler i've ever had in my life.
