Try These BBQ Classics in Your RV

These delicious and classic barbecue recipes, including sweet cola ribs and chipotle crusted pork tenderloin, are guaranteed to add a little more flavor to your campground cookouts.

Sweet Cola Ribs

What you’ll need:

  • 2 slabs baby-back ribs sliced into cocktail size portions
  • 2 bottles of your favorite barbecue sauce
  • 3 1-liter bottles of Coca Cola

Grilling instructions:

  1. Fill a large roasting pan (big enough for the ribs) with 1 1/2 bottles of Coca Cola. Submerge the ribs in the Coca Cola and refrigerate for one night.
  2. Preheat the grill to medium-high heat. Remove the ribs from the pan and clean it, then fill it with Coca Cola again.
  3. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees.
  4. Once the grill is hot, cook the ribs on it. Turn them often and dip them back into the cola each time. This should apply a layer of sugar to the ribs.
  5. When the ribs are nearly finished cooking (roughly 30 minutes), take them off the grill and fill a clean roasting pan with the barbecue sauce. Cut the ribs into individual portions and submerge them in the sauce.
  6. Bake them in the sauce for 1 hour, remove and serve.

Chipotle Crusted Pork Tenderloin

What you’ll need:

  • 2 pork tenderloins (3/4 pound each)
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 4 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 3 tablespoons chipotle chile powder
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder

Grilling instructions:

  1. Preheat the grill to medium-high heat.
  2. Combine the dry ingredients in a large resealable plastic bag. Place the tenderloins in the bag and shake until coated. Refrigerate for 15 minutes.
  3. Oil the grill lightly and place the meat on the oiled grate. Cook the tenderloins for 20 minutes, turning every 5 minutes. Let stand for 5 minutes before slicing.

Simple Gardening Tips for RV Travel

These simply tips for gardening on the go will help you continue your hobby and healthy lifestyle when you’re on the road.

Grow Tomatoes on the Road

You don’t have to give up your annual tomato crop just because you’re living an RV lifestyle. Special gardening tools, like the Topsy Turvy Planter, help you grow your favorite crops in tight spaces. The Topsy Turvy Planter allows your plants to grow upside down while they hang in any compact space. Simply move your Topsy Turvy Planter outside when you arrive at the campsite, and you’ll enjoy the benefits of a mobile garden.

Get Creative with Potters

You don’t have to spend a fortune on nifty gardening gadgets to enjoy your favorite fruits and vegetables on the go. Many RV enthusiasts already use shoe organizers as a way to keep products in order in their RVs. Those same shoe organizers work perfectly as hanging pots. Each small pocket serves as a pot for your favorite herbs, flowers and vegetables. Hang the organizer inside your RV when you hit the road, then move it back outside when you arrive at your destination.

Consider an Earth Box

The Earth Box is a new product to hit the market for gardeners who live in small spaces. It’s a little less mobile than hanging planters, but at just 2.5-feet long and 15-inches wide, it doesn’t take up much space in your RV when you’re traveling. The Earth Box is a simply growing system with the layering of a fertilizer band, potting mix, aeration screen and self-watering system to optimize your plant growth in small spaces. Move it outside of your RV when you park, and you’ll enjoy fresh produce on the go.
