Start the Fire

There are practical reasons for cooking outdoors—it lets you avoid heating up the house, it cuts down on pots and pans to wash, it opens up more breathing room for entertaining friends and family—but those pieces don’t tell the whole story. There’s just something about the magic of fire that attracts us and draws us together. Outdoor cooking is more exciting than cooking indoors. At the same time, it’s relaxing: Even when you make the most of the latest gear, you can still unplug, enjoy being outside, and focus on the here and now. So let these recipes spark your desire to keep the fire, and the fun, going.
