This may be a stupid question, just a warning.... I am planning a long camping trip and have decided crockpot dinners are going to be my saving grace. Until, that is , I remembered about this bear situation. Ok. We are camping in the Manitoba Whiteshell for a week-ish and I have meal-planned around my old, faithful crockpot. I figured it would be great. Throw everything into it in the late morning, go to the beach, and come home to bbq or fire-grill a few extras for a wholesome delicious meal. I am embarrassed to say I never thought of wildlife coming to the site throughout the day. I know the smell would lure fellow campers, so why not Smokie The Bear?? I can't imagine leaving the pot in the car while it cooks, baking coconut chicken or rootbeer-pulled-pork into the vehicle upholstry. How bad an idea is it to leave it in the pup?
