When we use to tent camp not much but with the AS you are only limited by the size of your TV and Storage space on the AS. I bring a Cobb and coleman grill and now that I just bought a griddle that will also come along. One or two of my favorite saute pans, handheld immersion electric blender, one full size espresso machine along with three other coffee pots, good knives.

More then I need and most of the time more then I use. But like a good carpenter you don't want to be without your tools.

I use stovetop, oven, and coleman grill (which I just started using) Mine has grill and a burner for pots. I am wondering...with coleman, do you all clean the whole grill , down under cook surface? I do not with gas grill at home, but do with coleman and it is a time consuming job everynite...is there a better way? We also heat water and do dishes outside. Thanks for help with the Coleman grill question.

Cast iron camp (with the legs) Dutch ovens outside! If you can cook a recipe in the oven in the house, you can cook it in a Dutch oven with charcoal (top and under). You control the temp with the quantity of briquettes top and under. We've adapted many recipes for our DOs, we even do great muffins (in foil liners) for breakfast and focaccia bread for dinner. Yummy!

What do you cook on/in besides the stove and oven?

- Galley cooking propane stove: light weight enamelware, scanpan skillet, cast iron fajita pan
- Convection/microwave: sidekick correlle dishes, pizza pan, fajita pan
- Outside Small "bucket style" charcoal grill and camp fire grate combo wood and charcoal
using same enamelware and fajita pan

Forum members are great for sharing their own experiences and I tried to follow their wisdom of limiting kitchen/cooking items to multi purpose items.

That being said, on my wish list: Cobb grill/oven, Kelley Kettle (just in case we would run out of propane while boondocking- no --- I'm not a prepper but really a much better person with my morning cup of coffee), and one more consideration is a Thermal Cooker. The good ones are pricey but for long distance trips, I think it would be great to prep a healthy dish while enjoying my second cup of morning coffee....pack the dinner in the Thermal Cooker.....travel to next destination and sit down to home cooked dinner without additional cooking!

We do almost all cooking outside so as to limit cooking odors, grease, etc. on the inside on those aluminum walls.
We use the Weber Baby Q gas grill for a lot of cooking. We have the griddle insert so this opens up lots of possibilities.
My other 2 go to cooking tools are my induction portable cook top (Max Burton brand) and my trusty, Fry Daddy (from when they were made in the USA). The induction cook top is great. Very quick even heat, just have to have induction compatible cook pots. We have a small aluminum folding table that we use as an outside cooking base for the induction cook top and the Fry Daddy.
I just recently picked up an almost new "Baby Cakes" muffin/cup cake from Craigslist for $10. So far I have made brownies, blueberry muffins, and jalapeno/cheese corn muffins in this. It is pretty small, so doesn't take up much space and works well when you are only cooking for two.

I have added the "Volcano 3" gas,wood,charcoal grill/oven.
Works very well with the Douch Oven and a two sided cast grittel.
When in fire band area LP is used.
The more we /I use it, the more we like it.

Weber Baby Q and Coleman propane two burner for outside, both connected to a 20# tank. A crockpot, toaster oven, small microwave, and crockpot if we ever camp with hookups. Melita pour-over carafe. A variety of vintage cast iron.

When power's not a concern, I use a NuWave convection cooktop for quick or slow cooking. Saves cleanup on gas stove.

We like the O grill. Have had for several years and works great. Crock pot and electric grill outside as well. Wife bakes a pie (the odd time) in the oven.

Small Weber Q 120 series gas grill for meat products. Veggies usually cooked on top of propane cooktop. Still working on the satisfactory operation of the built in propane oven. Temperature control is still hit or miss.

We use a Char-Broil portable gas grill a lot. Regarding cleaning it so it doesn't make a mess all over the back of the pickup, I use a Rubbermaid tough tote to carry the grill - it fit perfectly, with just a bit of whittling - easy to slide around in the truck, easy to carry to the picnic table (we do remove it to cook, so the tote won't melt!). We use a 1-gallon remote tank, which rides in another tote with the little gas can for the generator.

We also use one of the compact butane-powered one-burner saute stoves. It's tiny, lives in its own little plastic carrier, and gets hot enough to fry up a great breakfast. Not too great for boiling water, just not big enough.

When we towed a previous AS a couple of decades ago, I carried a big crab cooker and a large well-seasoned cheap steel wok. The cooker's huge burner would get the wok cherry-red in about 5 minutes - toss in some oil, lots of garlic (boy does it smoke!) and then the meat, peppers, onions ... MMM, Fajitas! The best outdoor food ever! I'm seriously considering getting another setup like that...

Charcoal BBQ for evening meals, we also carry an old-style two burner Coleman stove for stove-top cooking on the picnic table. I know it's duplicative but we enjoy doing it outdoors, and cooking odours and humidity waft away.

Breakfast and coffee on the AS stovetop. A bit of microwaving on occasion.
