Do you do most of your cooking inside or outside the coach?

Hi guys,

Not long ago I posted a thread about True Induction Cooking asking do you have it and do you like it?

From the responses I received some comments were unexpected, saying they purchased a True Induction cooktop and use it outdoors. They said they do most cooking outside, not in the coach!

I'm curious how many do the same thing? How many cook outside as often as possible? Maybe even cook outside to put in the freezer to eat later?

We cook inside most of the time but things like bacon or other things that throw fumes in the air we try to do outside. If it is nice out, why not pick up the induction plate and cook outside is what we think. jmo mark

We yanked our outside TV as soon as we got the bus home from the dealer. I installed a sound bar, and shelves to hold all of the cooking stuff that we usually use. Then I ran a quick connect to the passenger side for propane, to connect to the BBQ and portable fire pit.
So yes, we do almost all of our cooking outside.

I was a little surprised when some said they do most their cooking outside. But the more I thought about it, it does make sense to keep mess out if the coach if you can. As close as the couches etc are to the kitchen. Keeping smells, like bacon as mentioned earlier would be a good thing.

I've often thought making food that freezes well would make a lot of sense. Make the food outside and warm it up inside sounds good to me. The key for me would be the ability to cook it outside and clean up outside without a lot of hassle! Hauling everything in and out of the coach would get old in a hurry. Maybe if you could keep it in the basement?

Outside. Grill, charcoal, dutch oven, camp stove and even the electric griddle.

I do use the microwave inside but mostly for defrosting or heating left overs. I have used the electric burners a few times.

I consider myself an accomplished cook, and i thought I owned every kitchen tool i would ever need, but a pressurized oven? I will be googling that one right now.

Look for a Smart Pot. The difference between it and copy cats is that it's all stainless steel.

When the g kids are along we do the pancakes, bacon, eggs, etc. outside on our frying pan setup. When it's just g ma and I we go pretty light with toast inside. I almost always make coffee outside as I'm up earlier than DW. In the evening we usually BBQ something on the grill. If cooking inside we use the convection/microwave.
