I also prefer to cook outdoors. We always bring along the two burner stove and the grill. Use one or the other and sometimes both. And of course, we never leave home without the coffee pot, both electric and percolator kind. A few years ago we went camping and the electric coffee pot died and we had no back up. Had to go with "Cowboy Coffee" in a sauce pan.

handbuilder we have that stove and have used it the last 3 years. It works well and I find the burners have more power than the ones in the camper. You have to watch the temperature of the sove as there is not alot of adjustment for the flame. You can crack the stove door open alittle if it starts to get to hot. I would recommend that you use a 20 lb propane bottle to run the stove as I found the small green bottles did not have enough flow to run more than I burner on high.

Weather permitting I enjoy cooking outside. I just like being outside and cuts down on the mess in the trailer.

We had a very elaborate kitchen set up in our tenting days. Now i'm really glad it's all self-contained and we don't have to drag everything along, set it up, take it down, put it away, etc. Life is grand!

We use our coleman road trip LXE for almost everything as we have the full griddle and pot tops for it. Can make pretty much anything from pancakes and bacon to steak, soup you name it. For everything else there is the microwave and Keurig coffee maker.

Inside only if weather is bad or for breakfast if we don't go out to a restaurant. I carry a weber for grilling or smoking meats. If I'm frying fish I don't want to smell up the inside of the TT so we use the outside kitchen stove, works well.

With the exception of breakfast, we don't cook any of the meat inside, it's all cooked on the grill or fire while camping.

I mostly use the campfire in the evenings. An old fridge shelf makes a good grill. Add a sharp stick and a roll of aluminum foil and you can whip up a pretty good meal.

I removed the microwave from my unit after the first trip (actually, the Dempster Highway removed the microwave for me ) but I don't carry a generator and rarely camp where there's electricity so I get a lot more use out of the extra storage space.

Cooking outside my wife has never used the oven in either trailer we've owned. She does use a crock pot and a electric skillet, but even that she does outside.
