    During a recent 3 days without electric, due to Hurricane Irene, I decided to have some "Bacon & Eggs", without dirtying a frying pan (no clean water to wash it with).

    Below is how I did it with a "Throw-away" frying pan:


    Meanwhile this thing keeps my Fridge & Freezer at safe temps:


    Weber "Q" to the rescue----"DANGER !"-----Hungry Bear!!!


    Fill foil pan (throw-away Frying Pan) with Bacon pieces:


    Fry Bacon on grill, while getting 3 eggs ready for scrambling:


    Sop up extra Bacon grease with paper towel:


    Pour slightly beaten eggs over Fried Bacon Pieces:


    Be careful not to stomp all over invading 10' tall Tomato plants,

    closing in on smoker & grill:


    Another view of Tomato plants from above:


    Back to stirring Scrambled Bacon & Egg mixture:


    Completed & plated "Scrambled Eggs & Bacon Mixed":

    hey bear,

    Its amazing how we depend on electricity...... How many times did you walk towards or switch the light switch on while you were out of power...... When fran came through I was out of power for 9 days.......... did it all the time.......I lost everything in the fridge and freezer......didnt have a generator.......A conveinent store up the road was selling a cup of ice for a dollar....... he could stick it up his ice hole. Now i got me a miller trailblaizer......[​IMG]......

    Breakfast looks great....... [​IMG]

    Us that can do make do!!!

     Governor just declaired a state of emergency down here as we are expecting anywhere from 12" to 24" of rain in the next 3 days.

    Once SOE is declaired anti price gouging law takes affect.  No raising prices cause there's a storm coming.

    That Miller is one of my Son's other toys. He moved that one from his shop to his house with his fork lift, and brought the little Generac up to my front porch for me.

    Thanks Joe,


    12" to 24" ?!?!

    I haven't seen rain like that in 42 years !!!!

    Thanks Eman,

    Don't have a generator here,Bear.

    So if we loose power for a couple of days I guess we'll have a block party.

    Fire up the smokers & grills & empty the freezer.

    The neighbors will love me!

    watch out for those tomatoes they will sneak up on you while your smoking!


    Weve made many a meal while the power was out  (andrew 20 yrs ago 4 weeks no power)  my dual grill out back is direct hookup to city gas which has never gone out in a storm so i always have a fuel source.   made many a meal on that grill, breakfast lunch and dinner  we keep cases of ravioli spagettios corned beef hash and stuff like that, just heat em on the grill

    glad to hear you didnt get flooded!

    LOL---You remember that, huh? I love a guy who pays attention!

    I learned it from an old Sarge---My Dad.



    LOL---I'm betting the neighbors already love you !!!


    That's one nasty looking Mater!!!!!

    I'm much to high here (not me, my house) on this little mountain, to get flooded.

    4 weeks?--That really would suck!

    We were wondering how long we could go without septic problems, with a hard wired pump in the last tank.
