Do you cook more inside the RV or grill outside? For me it is outside, of course the weather has to cooperate.

Depends on the WX...we go out in our RV all year round, and sometimes it's too rainy/cold/nasty to cook out.

I like to cook as much as possible on the grill. However, it depends on what I have to use up in the refrigerator. There are times I like to saute vegetables which is best done on the stove. I have even baked muffins on the grill.

My hubby does not like to cook and I am not overly fond of cooking on the gas grill so I do a lot of cooking indoors or occasionally outdoors using my G. Foreman Grill. I must say that I am really looking forward to creating more complicated and adapting some old dishes now that we have a larger rig with more CCC. I can carry more of my cooking "toys"...

If anyone is in the area and you see our coach, stop by and I will happily cook up a storm for y'all.

OK I will be different here (that is what I am good at) we usually do both at the same time. I cook the main course outside and DW will fix a side dish inside. Sometimes I do it all. The rule we have when camping is that I will either do all the cooking or at least some of it. I told her she had done such a good job all these years at home that it was her turn to be waited on but she still likes to help some.

Most of the time we cook on the fire, sometimes on the gas grill. We never cook inside except to maybe microwave a bag of veggies or do baked potatoes. If the weather isn't so nice I usually pull out the slow cooker in the morning.

Mostly on the grill and fire. We do some inside but mostly with the oven or microwave.

I don't like the smell inside and the kids and I have a great time cooking out side.

Have to say the wife enjoys us doing all the cooking as well.

Rain and snow don't slow us down, part of the program.

Do it all. Grill, dutch oven, inside/outside, slow cooker, and sometimes just a bowl of cereal. The coffee is always done inside. We grind our beans and I like my coffee strong, but not bitter.

We like to cook outside as much as possible. I also prefer to do as much prep as possible outside on the picnic table.

Summer wife insists I grill everything,, Winter she does most of the cooking indoors.. Strange thing though.. She loves (And frankly so do I) BBQ ribs from Aldi, these come sealed in a bag already in BBQ sauce so all you do is slice the bag open and cook them.. Well, she thought she'd have to give 'em up in the winter and I suggested "No, we can use the slow cooker,, After all, proper BBQ is Slow Cooked (Grilling is fast cooking)

Well.... Suffice to say I'm not going to be grilling them any more.. The slow cooker is going to get a lot more use.. Man are those good.
Home is where I park it!

If I were to design an RV .... No Oven, No Stove Top. Just a regular microwave and a place to plug in a slow cooker, coffee pot, blender (for drinks of course). Plenty of storage for charcoal and my Webber Little Smokie. Why would anyone want to cook in one of these?
