Indoor cooking

Newbie here. We just purchased our first camper. Bought it used from an older couple we know that only used this camper 4 times in the 3 years they owned it. Health issues caused them to sell. They never used the indoor stove or oven. Only the microwave and the exterior grill. Do most folks grill outside? If so why?

I always grill outside - cannot imagine the amount of smoke that would accumulate if trying to grill inside.

Also cook bacon, and other items that will add a lot of odor, on an induction cooker outside.

Not sure why you would grill inside. We have our grill outside, since there's usually a lot of smoke and the propane grill hooks up outside.

All other cooking is done inside on the stovetop or oven.

Hardly ever used the stove and the over is just a bread box. Microwave and cook outside. Outside kitchen is a must. It is camping, be outside as much as possible.

We might boil water for noodles on the inside burners but that's about all the indoor cooking we do. Some people have luck with the rv ovens after installing a cooking stone to keep the heat more consistent

I fully understand, was just curious if anyone did. I have a Dutch oven and the camper came with a removable two burner stove with quick detach fitting tatt mounts on the side of the camper. The wife and I use to do a lot of tent canoe camping when we were younger. I still tent camp when on fishing and hunting trips.

I took your question to be "Do folks cook inside with their stove/over OR do they always cook outside maybe with a grill?" Am I close or were you really asking if people use their grill inside?




We cook inside and outside.

Close. Never really thought about the tight confines and the smoke. Makes sense to grill outside. Like I said newbie here.

Ha-ha!... from the title of the thread I thought the OP was asking about cooking in a door!
Title = "In Door cooking"
