On my gas grill I take wet wood chips and wrap in aluminum foil with a few holes then throw it on the grill with the steaks. Gives you just as much smokey flavor as charcoal without the mess and time. I still love charcoal but sometimes I need to be fast and not have to wait for the charcoal to heat up or to cool down.

I also use a DO but not the one that needs charcoal. I use an older #6 Griswold DO and it fits in our micro/oven combo just fine. It's perfect for my pork shoulder carnita's or BBQ pork, pot roast, chickens, pinto beans, chili, whatever. It's my most used cooking item. If you have a regular sized AS oven, then a Griswold #7 DO is a great size.

I'm going to have to try that. Are you using any specific type of wood for different foods/flavors?

I like hickory or pecan the best as it has the strongest flavor. Another tidbit is I also use a Safari Tabletop Newspaper Grill that I have had for 30 years. If you have never seen one, go to Youtube and check it out. For a quick burger or steak, it is unreal. I also just place wet chips inside the balled up newspaper for the same smokey effect.

The Grillbillies

We camp with a musical camping club that eats together... pot luck style. I am a light weight when it comes to grilling. I never cook inside the camper. I like to cook outside and socialize while I cook. I also pre cook dishes and freeze them. The frozen food helps jumpstart the fridge and many times I just need to boil rice or pasta to complete my dinner contribution. You should know and trust the people who are cooking. I have witnessed some sloppy food storage practices.

I totally agree, however there are places that do not allow charcoal or wood. we found that out a few years back, so we now always carry a small propane bbq (weber q 100- i think)

So far, they have come out pretty good.
I've never been big on burger and 'dogs anyway. This sounds really good! Seasonings?

The best of both worlds is to take wood chips, soak them for about an hour, wrap in aluminum foil(usually 2-3 pouches for 3-4 steaks), punch a few holes it it and throw on the gas grill with the steaks. Same good smokey flavor but no wait or mess to clean up. I use this method all the time and everyone thinks I have charcoal going.

I have about 5 different wood chips; mesquite is the most popular, but hickory, red oak, pecan, apple and alder work fine. Using this method, your wood chips last a long time.

I use the toaster/broiler in our oven to roast veggies, and then brought home made pizza crusts (pre baked, but I'd do it in the trailer too) and made pizzas in the oven- roast asparagus and goat cheese. Lasagne is great too, but I agree, it's probably more fun to assemble it at home and then bake it in the trailer. I usually bring a thing of pesto that I've made, great on sandwiches, to make a salad dressing of simple pasta dinner. Fritatas are easy too and can either be a top of the stove or oven thing. BTW, all of the stuff I make is good for 3+ meals for two people, so its some prep and then coasting. We always have our home made granola an fruit for breakfast, but pancakes are popular too.

The link for the Dutch Oven web-site has just made it to my "Favorites" under the Airstream file. I will soon be seasoning a 12" cast iron DO and trying some of the receipes, perhaps starting with the chicken enchiladas.
