Your DW doesn't see the benefits.
No trampling through the camper everytime you need something to eat ourside.
40 less trips to go get the salt, opps forgot the butter and oh dear I forgot the ketchup.
50 less trip for beer.
Oh this isn't warm enough take it in and nuke it.

Btw we've had an outside kitchen for 5 years and you wouldn't believe how much you use it!

Unfortunately we're trading Saturday for a unit without an outside kitchen, it'll be the biggest loss .

Said we'd never have another unit without one but there's not one close nor in the price range of what we want.

I just don't see how people can go RV'ing without an outside kitchen....That was the #1 reason we bought out 312qbud, the bunkhouse bedroom for the kids was #2....I think we have cooked once in the inside of the trailer in 30 nights out this year.....and a cold drink is never further than 20ft away....Outside kitchen just makes sense to me

I do a bit of catering. Usually outdoor weddings or grad parties at private residences. We normally take the mh with my bbq smoker being towed behind.
Our current unit does not have a outdoor kitchen which is the primary reason we are looking to go new. A outdoor kitchen for me would be priceless.
The biggest drawback I can think of is the outdoor fridge needs shore power or run the gen set the entire time. Often times at these events we are not hooked up to shore power.

I have been talking to Nexus about a new unit in which they will custom build a kitchen where the fridge will be 2 way.
A outdoor kitchen really limits your model choices in most manufacturers though. Which is nice about Nexus they will custom what you want. Seem to be great people to work with so far.

I am really looking to downsize, child grown, no wife. The outside kitchen just isn't avail in the smaller models.

With out a doubt it is the most used feature of my current camper.
I usually keep the back fridge empty then transfer food to it as I set up not a big deal, the dry ice trick sounds good though.

I'm not sure how small of a model you are referring to. Our previous camper was a 21ft rear bath. It was perfect for one or two people and had a solid kitchen outside with huge bath as well. I think it was made by RVision who may not be around anymore. It really was a good floor plan, but we outgrew it with a baby and now a second on the way.

The link is pics of our old camper(same as the pic above). The new one is a 30ft bumper pull toy hauler. No outside kitchen anymore which was a tough decision.
