Using the Propane Oven while traveling

Greetings Fellow RVers: We will be traveling on Thanksgiving Day. I was thinking about slipping a fresh turkey breast in the oven so it would be ready for dinner when we arrived at our campground. Has anyone used the oven while traveling. I would like to hear pros and cons. Happy Thanksgiving to All.

I would not like having any open flame in the trailer while it is moving down the road at 60-65 MPH.
I would precook it at home and then just warm it up at the camp.

We did it many times, cook dinner under way so we can eat soon after arrival end of day. If it is not legal, I guess someone should tell us. Risk is no more than without the oven on. Off to refuel of coarse.

I would be vary careful driving down the road with the oven on. You might find the turkey on the floor when you finally reach the CG. I would precook the bird at home and warm it up when you get to the CG.

Exclamation

Whooops, A flash grease fire anywhere is no fun. All that greasy broth and a splatter after a bad bump or emergency stop and there she goes.

I was having a hard time seeing the downside of this idea until this. Good point.
