Now there's a thought. I share an underground garage with ~20 other condos. There are a few electrical outlets. It would take them forever to figure out where the smell was coming from. Hmmm I only like a few of my neighbours...

They would be expensive caramelized onions for me...have to get the Dawg's house first.

I can use an outlet insert in the porch light, set it outside wrapped in a blanket. I think that might be considered a fire hazard though.

I have an outdoor outlet. Like you, I thought of a blanket and then thought of fire hazard.

You could put your CP in the grill. Before some wise guy has a chance to "comment", don't turn on the grill.

That would be a great idea, but all I have is an hibachi.

Who said you can't cook outside? There are folks here that cook outside all year round. Just keep a warm coat near the door. It is not like you are going to be standing out there while everything cooks. All you are going to do after you prepare the grill is just keep an eye on the food.

Addie, it's the crock pot that needs a winter coat outside for 20 hours, not PF.

Good idea about the grill Andy. Wrap up the CP in a blanket and close the lid on the grill, right? With the unlikely case that the blanket catchs fire it would be safely confined inside.

I see that it will be down to 14 degrees tonight for PF. Brrrrrrr........

You might not need the blanket, the grill cover should protect the CP against moisture and keep the heat in. Maybe a foil wrap would provide some insulation if you think it's necessary.

Good point Dawg. Shows how much I know about cold weather.
Yet another thought, I wonder how it would work to put the CP inside one of those special cooking bags some people use for cooking turkey? This might work for you, Taxi, since you don't have a grill with a lid.
