1. Grill - This would be the go to in any emergency or if shtf. A propane or charcoal grill is a great way to cool without power. You can even add wood and cook that way as well. If you don't already have a grill it would be a good idea to pick up an inexpensive one just in case.
2. Camping stove - For little money you van pick up a 2 burner camping stove that runs on the small great propane bottles. I have one that I use when we go camping as an alternative to an open camp fire. They work great.
3. Camp fire - An open camp fire is a wonderful primitive way to cook or warm food. This is my preferred method of cooking and boiling water when we go camping.
