I have used both methods. I like outdoors better for grilling but I brought a TT with a stove so I could cook indoors if I want to. In time you will figure out what will work best for you.

Is that really a bad thing?[/QUOTE]

I had wondered about that. Thanks for taking away the mystery. Doubt we'll be frying any fish inside the camper.

Wanna65stang....I've had a 68 and my parents had all from 65 up through 71. My childhood memories are remember through the backseat window of a Mustang. A 67 Fastback is my dream ride....

I cook the meat on the Weber Q outside and DW uses the stovetop and oven inside for everything else that needs to be cooked. Never have a problem with odors or humidity inside. Our TT doesn't have an outside kitchen and it's never been a priority for us. We eat outside unless the bugs/flies are bad.

We tent camped for years and have over time transitioned to some inside cooking, depending on the weather. If I'm grilling steaks outside, often DW will saute mushrooms inside. Rain and cold? we'll do clam sauce inside or pop a frozen baked ziti in the oven.
Outside we cook on wood, charcoal, propane. All depends how we feel that day and what we're having: bbq chicken - wood or charcoal. Steak - hot propane.
Have the bumper grill and used it a couple of times. Did OK (our old RV had the grill mounted to a rail which started to separate from the wall while I was cooking. That was it for that one).
We like to spread out with cooking and eating areas away from the RV. All probably a holdover from tenting days.

Same here. We rarely have fires, but if we do- I will setup my adjustable grill on it and will cook over it. There's nothing quite like the taste of food cooked on a real fire.

But, we aren't camping.

Breakfast is cooked on a gas griddle and most dinners are on the Webber Q

Just remember to size you choices so as not to require another axel on your rig.
I carry and use the skillet because I could not get the scrambled eggs to stay on top of the grill grate.....

I have a Camp Chef 2 burner that connects to my trailer quick disconnect. I've got a small 3 foot folding table from Costco to use for prep. Both fit nicely in the garage.

Our 302FK came with a gas grill that immediately got stored in the garage. We use a baby weber, fire pit, or butane single burner for most lunches and dinners. Rainy days or sometimes breakfast the kitchen gets used. Even though our new hemisphere has a large kitchen we still like to be outdoors as much as possible.

I also have the camp chef and I've got both the BBQ box and the griddle for it. BBQ box works ok, but I can't seem to get an even heat on the griddle. That's why DW's started to bring an electric griddle instead for things like pancakes or grilled cheese.
