SuperNiece to the Rescue

OK so I've always been a traditional Coleman fan, especially of the old white gas/naptha stoves. The pyromaniac in me is tickled by the prospect of carrying a little green bomb/explosive device/briefcase legally, but I digress. Anyway, in the never-ending quest for miniaturization I have been eying the RoadTrip Party Grill. I am sure I have seen them locally, but was not able to find one. then I noticed that they appeared on Coleman's U.S. website, but not on their Canadian one...strange. Not sure why that is...safety concern?? Not likely since the ridiculous Coleman propane Deep Fryer is there for the taking (note to self: increase Lipitor dosage accordingly). Really though...that's all we need on our next camping trip; a propane deep fryer.
Short story longer: My niece sent me just what I wanted, as a Christmas gift all the way from Hawaii. The Coleman Roadtrip Party Grill. A million thank-yous Kim. Send the bill to Debbie please...test report to follow...[note to other gift giving family members: this is the only gift that I really appreciated...heh...heh...]

I have enough firewood to last me into next winter, so a power outage is really only an inconvenience at worst. Of course winter helps in that the only real electric dependency, Refrigeration, is offset by the fact that it's cold. However, and to get to my point, I'm a little obsessed with the whole concept off "off-grid refrigeration". It's actually a childhood throwback on two fronts. Let me explain, first I remember going to our "camp" in the summer. Routinely, considerable quantities of Soda Pop (we just called it "drink") were lugged to the camp. Sometimes it was Co-op brand tin cans, Pepsi, or even green bottles of Mountain Dew complete with the hillbilly exclaiming "it'll…
