About Mac & The Big Cheese

About Mac & The Big Cheese

Camping and Tailgating are some of America’s favorite pasttimes; a time to relax & let go of the stresses that life dishes out. Many people think of an excursion into the forest or into the parking lots of the 'Big Game' as “roughing it,” of leaving the comforts of home behind. While ditching the big screen TV back home is part of the outdoor experience, ULTIMATE OUTDOOR COOKING leaves the hot dogs and freeze-dried pouches of powder behind, in exchange for the choicest cuts of meat, the freshest vegetables, and the most scrumptious fish. The good life, filled with mouth-wateringly delicious dishes prepared by the funniest celebrity chefs around!
