I prefer to cook outside specially when I have the tent of the aframe set up. I do not have to break the bed to table during camping. I use the stove top inside as a counter:

As mentioned here for fire safety, I put the stove on the side counter of the rig, not to close to the tent

But having the stove inside is nice too, I could cook my food while waiting for my campsite or use it on rest stops during the trip.

Are we allowed to cook in rest stops or parking lot?

We cook nearly everything on our Traeger portable when camping. We traded our Traeger junior for the portable.

Breakfast, lunch and dinner all done on Traeger.

Handbuilder ... They sure do. Check out their website. We have a Texas Traeger at home and the PTG for camping.

Always get people "stopping by to say hi" while camping.

We have never cooked inside ... however it is handy for boiling water for a coffee on a rainy day. For us .. camping is an outside experience .. so a foldable table is set up just outside the door, and all the utensils and plating are in a 4 drawer plastic tower. Meals are made on a Weber Q120, which can cook anything from full chickens, to grilled cheeze sandwiches ... its an awesome little Q.
Large mains like chili, stews,lobster dishes and even bread, are cooked in a alumium dutch oven ... so no needs for any oven for us ..

We cook everything outside unless the weather does not permit. We setup a table, and even have coffee pot, and toaster there.

BOTH! We have a great outdoor grill, "Volcano"... love cooling outdoors. All season camoing...enev whne it cold abnd wet.

But could not live without my 3 burner, full gas oven, stove... use the fire out of it! Use my inside stove more than I use my microwave. When ever we make a camping trip... we bake something in the oven at least once or twice. Biscuits, muffins, brownines, or a casserole.

I guess we are the exception, we only cook inside with grilling outside occasionaly. Use the oven almost daily, we do use the crockpot outside, I love to cook but as a city girl,only inside!

We will do preprepped meals and use the microwave but, for the most part we'll cook outside. Never used the inside stove yet.
