Grilling for Survival When Disaster Strikes

It’s time to set aside all of the glamorous recipes, meals and desserts and think about what you would do if disaster hit. I am bringing this up because I do live in a hurricane prone area and it is hurricane season. However, disaster can strike anywhere at anytime. I am sharing grilling for survival because it is what I had to do last summer.

The key element here is survival. It’s not about just having a grill, it’s about having the tools to go along with your grill it that make life easier. Whether it’s a propane or charcoal grill you must have CAST IRON COOKWARE. The essentials are a cast iron griddle, cast iron fry pan and a cast iron dutch oven. These key elements will allow you to make breakfast, lunch and dinner and not have to eat just grilled meats, fruits and vegetables.

Granted I love grilled food as much as the other guy, but being able to make french toast, eggs, pancakes and bacon during the aftermath of a storm with no power makes life bearable. Having cast iron cookware and a grill is like having a cooktop and oven.

If you know someone in hurricane zone please relay this information or forward this article so they too can prepare. I am putting together a list and recipes we used to make it through the survival period. Sign up jwith your email to receive the survival list in your inbox.

One thought on “Grilling for Survival When Disaster Strikes

  1. Never thought of using pans with a grill. We don’t live in a hurricane zone but the snow/icebelt. We tend to lose power in winter. You cannot hear your home with a grill, carbon monoxide, but you can still cook outside in winter and it doesn’t draw off the generator. Great idea for pans!
