One of my pet peeves is when you are crammed together in tight spaces and your neighbors are having a huge fire going and it's smoking you out. I have to shut all my windows as I'm coughing on their fumes.

"X2. Outside kitchens add lot more weight to the TT. A lot more then just my grill. I don't need an outdoor fridge or sink that is redundant. Plus most outdoor kitchens the door is head hazard. Just my opinion. Everyone has their preferences."

to each his own I guess, we haven't owned our tt long enough to use the outdoor kitchen but can't wait. We love to sit outdoors after a long day and think the outdoor fridge will be great for pop, adult beverages and snacks, without trekking dirt and sand into the trailer every few minutes. We use our tt for dog shows and the dogs like to race around at this time also so not going in and out of the trailer keeps them outside. (we also go through a lot of pop so putting pop in the outdoor fridge leaves room in the inside fridge for food) As for cooking, anything meat goes on the coleman roadtrip grill and my sister fixes the side dishes inside. We're not big on breakfast or lunch so a sandwich, salad, or snacks (sometimes heated in the microwave) suffice.

Do we cook in our MH, yes we do. Am I worried about smells , not really,we don't cook fish or cabbage or other high smell items, but on the other hand have gone into other people's units who do not and will not cook in theirs and they have dogs,cat litter boxes, wet shoes etc,etc, though ( I also have a dog). I bought MH to use it , just my 2 cents.

Worse than even a fishy smell in my motorhome was when my dogs got skunked outside the door late one evening and I was dry camping. ��

We cook on our grill just about every time. DW will always pre-plan meals an make them ahead of time. (burgers, marinated chicken, steaks..you name it). It makes things so much simpler, when all you have to do is take it out of the freezer the day you want to cook it. You will find out what works best for you.

At the top of my list was no outdoor kitchen! We eat out a bit, use the grill, and cook inside. Also, we keep a small fridge beside the tv in the passthru storage for drinks and a few snacks.

The wife and I boondock a lot with our T21QBHW. We cook just about everything outdoors even though our a frame has a 3 burner stove with oven. No heat build up inside, no odor inside.we use the little RVQ grill that came with the unit and a cast iron griddle . The outdoor kitchen sounds like the ultimate luxury to me !

We have the 346Qbud Salem Hemisphere. We cook on our grill every time out, using the oven only during cooler weather, the microwave gets used a lot and so do the burners. We find the outside kitchen a joy. I'm using the inside kitchen less and less. We too prepare food ahead of time and grocery shop along the way.

As I prefer my food prepared without a fly on it or me while preparing and cooking I use the grill. Smoke from the grill keeps those critters away. A selling point for me was no outdoor kitchen to take up space and 1 unused item to winterize.

Not having the outside kitchen was a deal breaker. We use ours extensively. I do most all the cooking while camping, along with clean up with the sink.
