Grilling Delicious Hamburgers

Cooking at home is usually a “task” more than it is an event (and certainly, it is not usually something you think of as “fun”), but one thing that will usually be exciting for those who are partaking, and that will be fun to cook, is hamburgers on the grill; now, you may think of hamburgers as a “summer” food (especially when it comes to cooking it on the grill!), but you can actually grill hamburgers at any time of year, and it can be just as fun and delicious!

Starting out with good hamburger patties will be the first step to grilling delicious hamburgers; you will need to make sure you begin with good meat (organic hamburger meat is best, as it will be healthier and taste a whole lot better!), and then you will want to mix the meat with a couple eggs and perhaps some barbecue sauce (and even some chopped up yellow onions) before forming it into patties, as this will give you nicely-flavored hamburger patties to work with.

You will achieve the best taste with your hamburgers when you use charcoal, instead of gas, but you will also need to make sure you know how to work these coals; too many people make the mistake of throwing their patties on when the coals are at their hottest, but you should actually wait until the coals have started to cool a bit before you throw the patties on, as this will ensure that you get the insides of the patties cooked, as well as the outsides.

And as the patties near the end of their time above the coals, you should also grill the buns you are using until they are lightly “toasted,” and you should use the heat of the coals to melt cheese onto any patties for those who want cheeseburgers.

If you follow all these steps, you will be all set to prepare delicious hamburgers on the grill for you and your family, no matter what time of year it is!


Staying Warm When Camping

Whether you are going backpacking deep in the woods or are simply going camping at a campsite beside your car, and whether you are going camping in the fall when it is crisp during the day and cold at night or during the summer when the weather at night tends to fluctuate, one of the most important things in order for you to enjoy yourself is that you get a good night of sleep, and in order to get a good night of sleep you will need to be able to protect yourself from the cold (yes, even during the summer!).

Of course, in order to keep yourself warm when camping, a good sleeping bag is the first thing you will need; when it comes to picking out a good camping sleeping bag, realize that it is better to go with a camping bag graded for colder temperatures than you expect to be in than to go with one that is right in the range you think you will need, as it is easy to make yourself cooler by unzipping your sleeping bag a bit, but there is not much you can do to make your sleeping bag warmer if it is a cold night.

You can still deal with some pretty chilly nights when camping, even if you have a good sleeping bag, because the ground itself tends to be cold at night; in order to combat this, you will want to make sure you get a good camping pad – which can be an inflatable air mattress if you are camping out of your car, and can be something lightweight, sturdy, and insulated if you are going to be backpacking.

And actually, you will often have a harder time keeping yourself warm at night if you bundle up inside your sleeping bag instead of simply wearing a single layer; when you go with just one layer (or even with no layers at all!) inside your sleeping bag, it will trap your body heat, and will make you a whole lot warmer!

Make sure you keep these tips in mind, regardless of the time of year during which you are going camping, and they will help you to remain warm when the cold weather rolls in at night.
