Question Do you bake enroute?

Ya know, I feel pretty comfortable about running the refrigerator on gas while enroute to my destination, but the oven? If nothing else, how do you keep dinner from sloshing around during braking/cornering?

Anyone else bake while on the road?

Hmm...I don't know if you'd make out too well baking a souflet. BUT I hear that if you get new axles, and balance the running gear properly, you could do it.

seriously, though...I don't know if I'd be that comfortable doing it. the oven flame is big. fridge flame is small...more like a pilot.

I really wouldn't consider that on 2 fronts; 1-safety, 2-messy. We don't have a 'self-cleaning' oven in our's yet .

I suppose it's an even bigger problem if you have a microwave oven... you need a really long 30-amp cord, or you have to run the generator all the way home.

We used our inverter. Place crock pot IN THE SINK on an old towel, plug into wall, power up inverter, load ingredients, and turn it on. Get on the road and go. By the time you are at the evening destination you have dinner ready as soon as you unhook.

I don't see how you would be able to cook in the oven without making a mess, or having a pan that is large enough to fill the oven or be held in place somehow.

I read someone's mom baked cassaroles on the way on Friday evenings when they were children so dinner was ready when they arrived. I, too, would think it would be messy if not dangerous.

My boss's folks had a converted school bus MH when he was a kid. He tells me that his mom would start dinner when they were 30 minutes (or however long it would take) from the next scheduled stop. She'd cook on the stove top, or whatever was required, and when they got to their rest stop...dinner!!

I can't imagine trying to do that nowadays, with the interstates in the shape they're in. (around here, anyway).

In addition, I would think that you would have to vent out the spent LP so that it does not build up in the coach. You would have to have the vent hood over the stove/range/oven running the entire time of travel, or at least a ceiling vent cracked open. A mess if it is raining.

It seems like more effort than it's worth. I do travel with my fridge running on gas, but I wouldn't feel comfortable traveling with the oven set to 400 degrees.

Sandwiches anyone?

Bottom line....

It's a bad idea.

in the professional cooking world its called "mies en plas" ( translates to everything in its place)...have your ingredients ready, it doesnt take very long to put something together....if that doesnt work for you....you have a problem....
