Outdoor cooking has changed considerably since the olden days when people built fires in pits! In the 1950s a simple charcoal grill (or a hibachi) was the staple of a suburban backyard. The only thing, though, it often took up to a half-hour before the fire was at an even temperature to allow for cooking. Then came the firestarter in a can that resulted in a quicker starting fire and not a few singed eyebrows! Nowadays we have gas grills that can be hot enough to cook within seconds.
Most everyone enjoys eating outdoors, too. Especially kids. How about cooking and eating out-of-doors tonight?
