Small Cabin Cooking

I use an old propane BBQ with side burner for cooking. (Do not run the BBQ inside the cabin!)
During winter months, I cook on the woodstove while heating the cabin.
Hide food from bears, raccoons, and squirrels, etc.

Care of Environment

Try to be as environmentally-friendly as possible.
For example, use biodegradable soap products.
