+1 on the floor tile.

Under $3 at Home Depot and it solves all burning issues - pun intended

I love to bake home made pizzas and cookies.

YOURS TOO? Mine says that everything inside makes it to hot except the microwave. She then turns around and says that camping is like her vacations so she is not cooking. I think the women may have a conspiracy going on here. Oh well I would rather cook outside when i'm camping anyway.

We have a similar situation at my trailer but have found a good compromise... most things get cooked outside but some 'bakables' get cooked in the oven. The oven makes great toast! Sometimes we'll do a berry cobbler or pie but stove top items usually get cooked on a fire outside or outside propane stove.

What time will the coffee be ready?

x2 on the conspiracy!!!!

My wife had wanted an oven because she always makes fresh apple pies when we go apple picking in the fall. The unit we finally decided on did not have an oven but a convection microwave. She has since learned to use that and makes her apple pies in it.

Out of all trailers we've owned, we've only used the oven and stove, to cook a meal, once. It was in the heat of August in south LA. with not a tree around and the 15K A/C could not keep up.
When camping, we always cook outside and I'm the one doing it most of the time. I feel sense she cooks at home, I can at least cook while camping. Then again, it's mostly grilled food.

All kidding aside - we use our oven heavily. I suspect this may have to do with being in the Pacific NW. It's not usually very hot here so the additional heat in the trailer is not an issue

Now I know I shouldn't say this, cause I'm going to get a lot of you in trouble, but besides the cooking, most of the time I do the dishes too!!! I figure it's HER vacation, she never camped when she was growing up like I did, and she's always takin' care of me at home, so a couple times a year I get to be all girly.

You're wife and mine must be close friends. Mine said the same thing.
If 2 women think it is true it must be so.

Thanks for the tip on the floor tile! Used the oven for the first time on our last camping trip. (New camper) I noticed the blueberry muffins I made were nicely browned on the bottom but not so much on the top although they were cooked through. I am also a fan of airbake pans and bought a set of small ones for the camper.

As for pizza - grill it baby!! Love to grill the dough on the charcoal pit, top it, then put it back on to finish. The smokey flavor is WONDERFUL!!

BTDub - I guess my husband would have to say he's spoiled.

I love to cook, and cooking while camping is my new challenge!
