Some cooking just can’t be done in a kitchen and for that reason we’re running the Outdoor Cooking Contest! For this contest we’re teaming up with GoSun giving away GoSun Grills, GoSun Sports, GoSun Mini Kits, and Instructables prize packs including a robot apron.

Instructables will be judged on ingenuity, originality, and thorough documentation, and anything related to outdoor cooking is eligible to enter. Start cookin’ up those ideas and show us your solar cooking techniques, handmade BBQs, pizza ovens, and of course all the food that’s fit to grill.

The Outdoor Cooking Contest is closed.
