RVFTA #148 Smokin’ and Grillin’ 101 With Casita Dean!

On this week’s episode of RV Family Travel Atlas we are taking you to summer school and diving into the yummy world of smokin’ and grillin’. This is truly one of America’s greatest pastimes, and the way many of us feed our families in the summer both at home and on the road.


So we invited Campground of the Week correspondent (and international egg camping superstar) Casita Dean May onto the show to coach us through the process of smokin’ and grillin’ in the backyard and at the campground. He’ll tell us about ALL of the basic gear and cookbooks we need, the most important steps in the process, and then–most important of all–his favorite recipes.

RVFTA #40: Let’s Get Grillin’

On this week’s episode of RV Family Travel Atlas, we are talking about the fine art of grilling. We love the idea of making delicious campground meals on a great portable grill, but quite frankly we don’t have the tools or the talent.

So we reached out to Evanne Schmarder, cohost of Rollin’ on TV and creator of the RV Cooking Show. She is taking us to school and teaching us Grillin’ 101. Listen for some fantastic grill recommendations as well as some great tips for putting a delicious dinner on your campground picnic table.

Evanne is schooling us on:

  • Preheating the Grill
  • Oiling the food
  • Meat in the middle and veg around the edge
  • Closing the lid
  • Using a timer
  • Using a meat thermometer
  • Letting meat rest
  • Cleaning your grill
  • Grilled Fish Tacos

Plus Stephanie shares an easy way to add some flavor and punch to your meals without packing up your whole spice cabinet. Mixing spice rubs ahead of time is a simple trick to save time and space while traveling in your RV.

And we have a review of Campfire Cuisine by Robin Donovan, a unique and classy camping cookbook that takes you beyond the beef stew and cowboy casserole. We reviewed this cookbook a little over a year ago, and we are still just as infatuated with the great meal planning resources, out of the box meal ideas, and tips for prepping in advance.

All of this and a fun new giveaway on Episode 40 of RV Family Travel Atlas: Let’s Get Grillin’!
