If you like camping or just cooking outdoors in your back yard, you probably have a lot of favorite main dish recipes for meats and veggies. What about dessert on the barbecue grill? Most people look forward to something sweet after dinner, and appetites can be big when outdoors.

My favorite meat to barbecue while camping is baby back ribs, and we usually have some sort of salad, grilled corn on the cob and some chili beans (or baked) and garlic bread. We often do the s’mores thing, but who says you can’t do that and something else, too? The more the better!

Here are some recipes you might like to try next time you fire up the grill. And if your marshmallow turns into a roaring blaze because you got it too close to the heat, don’t whip it back and forth trying to put the flames out! There was a scene in the movie “Dennis the Menace” that showed what can happen if you do that, but we had our own learn-the-hard-way experience!
