Although you might not be able to build an actual campfire, you can break out the ol' grill and eat some camplike food. You can cook hot dogs, roast marshmallows, and dine on other camping fare to give your backyard camping expedition a taste of the great outdoors. In addition to a grill, some towns and cities allow the use of an enclosed fire pit which makes the experience even more authentic.
