Calling all cooks

New Sierra, new RVer. Have a 3 burner Suburban stove. All 3 burners are small diameter and using a standard skillet does not work well, hot spot in the middle. what cain I do to disperse heat mor evenly. I know I can use smaller pans, but I have a big appetite. Just bought the trailer so my budget doesn't allow for high dollar heavy bottom pans. What to do?

In the future when the budget is better, is there an upgrade stove with a larger burner. I would be happy to give up 3 for 2 burners to do this. My "gorumet" meals are just not what they used to be.

Welcome to the forum and congrats on the new rig. You said your skillet was not big enough. We bring an electric skillet and use it outside to cook allot of things. Also you could get a two burner stove at an outdoor store and run a connection to your propane tanks. They are much bigger and can handle larger pots & pans. I try to do most of my cooking outside when I'm camping. Hope that helps. .

We bought a set of frying pans that have the rings on the bottom that dispurse the heat throughout the pan. We bought them at Kohls. I know they're Farber Made pans with a small rubber piece on the handle for your thumb. I believe they come in a bunch of colors. We have 7", 9", and 12" pans. They all work fine on our 3 burner stove. Although the 12" works best on the front high output burner.

I have never noticed any problem with my pans not getting even hear either. I do have a slightly smaller set of pans than I have at home but not by much. DH usually grills and I just make a few side dishes inside unless it is extremely hot or cold out. I know I have seen pans advertised that distribute the heat evenly but I can't remember what they are.

I second the electric skillet we never camp without it also use a electric kitchen kettle bought this at walmart can be used as a dutch oven or a deep fryer or a slow cooker it works like a skillet you can control the temp

We no cook inside.

Cook outside.

Lectric skill-it.
Large gar griller.
Whatever is needed to do job.

This way, trailer not smell like food.

Hi, Kegstealer: When cooking outdoors, do you ever use the propane fitting that's located under the 186 Sport on the starboard side? I didn't even know I had this capability until someone showed it to me. I've never used it, but I guess it would be a good place to mount a grill or just hook a line to it.

mjones, my Jayco had that outside propane connection. I had a pigtail made up so I could run a portable BBQ (rather that the RVQ) & a Coleman stove.

My 2106 doesn't have a external fitting, so I just use a Stay-A-While adapter & hose to fuel my BBQ.

Mjones: Yes we use it all the time. When I ordered the little camper I ordered it with the outside grill option. It came with a mount just above the propane connection to mount the grill and the appropriate quick disconnect hose.The grill works good as long as it is not to windy.

Linda and I cook outside the trailer ... we have an electric skillet, George Forman grill, a big crock pot, a coleman stove with hose connected to a large LP bottle, we have cooked with a coffee can and a candle ... my Brownie troop loved it.

A cast iron skillet works well on the stove.

Good Eats
