    PJ’s Pro Tip #6 - Pesky Outdoor Fly Solution

    A lot of you might be using these already, but something I’ve found to be very useful when cooking outdoors is one of these fly tents to cover my food, trays or utensils. I’ve been using them for years and wanted to share this, in case you haven’t seen these before. They come in different sizes and there’s many brands available on Amazon. They fold up into a small umbrella shape when not in use.

    Thanks for posting. I never thought to look for something like these. I usually just wave my arms like mad and serve the food I couldn't protect to my sister-in-law.

      An easier solution for you might be to let someone else do the cookin' so that flies aren't attracted to the cookin' area.

      Yes! Have them! tip #6.1:
      If you are eating outside and the flies see you plate your food out from under your mesh tent, place dabs of Tabasco sauce around the edges of your plate. They will wave off unless of course, they are Texas flies.

        So who is the "pro" who recommended it? Not nice to put up stuff without proper attribution.

          Panhead John Someone gave me one many years ago. We used it once and gave it to someone else. More trouble than it is worth. No place to put it when trying to get food while on the table. You really need 3 hands, one to lift it, one to hold your plate, and one to dish the food to your plate.

            Or…..you could put it on your head and wear it like a hat. Get a bigger table? 1. Use it to cover your food tray (as I did in the photo) When needing access to the food tray, remove the tent…set it to the side, or on your head if you don’t have room. Then place food from the grill on your serving tray. Put tent back over the food tray. Repeat as necessary.
            2. When ready to eat, remove tent and carry your tray inside the house.

            Yeah gotta agree we found metal
            Mesh one a few years ago, the table was a crowded mess. It was easier for me to kill every living insect in a three mile radius of the house

            Panhead John Remind me never to eat when you're cooking!

            You know a fly defecates every 60 seconds. It’s said that that micronic size of the defecated particulates are smaller then the mesh size of that food diaper. Gravity my friend, has rendered your contraption obsolete

              You and Clark should move in together.
