There are actually two types of smoke detector commonly available. The ion type (most common, least expensive) which will react to cooking and the photoelectric type. The photoelectric type is usually more expensive than the ion type but will not react to cooking quite as quickly. Both are equally effective but do detect different types of fire (smoke) conditions.

I hear smoke detectors go off all over our seasonal campgrounds all the time... and it's always in the new campers... our own included. I just cook as much outside as I can, always did anyways

I grew up with this issue. My parents always presented it as a "toast detector" and a safety bonus as we were always assured that the detector worked.

We call it the bacon detector. Wakes everyone up when breakfast is ready.

I take ours down when the DW cooks leave it on the bed so we don't forget to put it back, this is not the first trailer that has been like this.
