Indeed, don't run, just stay and tempt us with good ideas about things to cook while on the road...or maybe just camping in our driveways! This thread should not be considered contentious. Just step back a minute and consider. Sometimes we are given yes to a question in life, but sometimes we get a no. Our mods work so hard for us that I and others are willing to accept their insight into a topic. Tone of a post sometimes adds an emotion to a post that is not meant but is perceived. Maybe that is what happened here. So, please stay. Enrich the forum with your love of cooking and camping and you'll make many friends among the forum members. ~G

Like I said before, I'm sorry I started this thread. Since it obvious that the moderators have no desire to start a sub-forum no matter what any of the users here think, why dont you just delete this thread and not waste the space to store it on the server.

While you're at it please delete my account and username. I won't be posting here anymore.
If you find this "food forum", please let me know. Your idea seemed like a good one to me but then perhaps I just don't know how to find the food threads.

OK - I'll admit I'm getting a litle hot under the collar - I need to take a deep breath and chill a bit.

As of this post, there have been over 300 members who have read this thread. If any of you have an interest in a food preparation - kitchen related sub-forum please respond and let it be known.

Hopefully, if there enough favorable response to this idea the moderators may consider looking at it again.

If this forum were to be established, it could be a very popular one. Sure, there are other food forums out there like discusscooking.com, but there really isn't anything that is tailored to the unique situations we encounter cooking in an Airstream.

The discusscooking.com forum is moderated by a devoted group of volunteers concentrating on that subject. I am aware that the mods there "spend some substantial time at the cooking forum dealing with copyright issues. Recipes are copy protected and in theory, should be appropriately referenced." Who wouldn't recognize the old Good Housekeeping cookbook Fudgy Brownie recipe? This would be a difficult issue for Airstream moderators to deal with on a recurring basis. Yes, off topic threads are allowed and many lose interest and thankfully do not saturate the portal page. It still remains that this is an Airstream forum and loses something when we stray significantly from purchase decisions, repair, restoration or rally discussions. I certainly heard from people when our portal page became saturated with joke and game threads. I do not know that there is a solution pleasing to all.

discusscooking.com does have an Outdoor Cooking forum (see post #3 in this thread). I'd suggest sharing your devotion over there, seeing if there is a way to tweak that for trailer campers, then come back here and clue in our membership. Maybe we can develop better links to such an area. But moderating that would take me away from the Airstream, related websites and away from the rivet gun more than you'd want to see. That's my personal view.

Bob - you made some excellent points which shed some light on the issue.

Sure, there are many cooking sites out there and discusscooking.com is an excellent one. But... if you were to ask a question about using a kitchen appliance on an inverter or tips on cooking while boondocking, would discusscooking.com have the resources to answer it?

Although I'm sure there would be recipes posted (there are already recipes posted here) this sub-forum would not be just about recipes, but more importantly, it would provide a single place for threads related to food preparation and storage issues to be posted. I really don't see it any differently than the way it is now other than it all being on one place. We could then be able to browse one plece rather than searching for the information all throughout the forums.

RV.net has an excellent forum that discusses problems unique to cooking on an RV - but RV.net is not a part of the Social Knowledge Community and it would be nice to have a forum like that here.

I realize the that this may place some additional responsibility on the moderators, but then again it may not. I see it as a matter of having related messages in one spot.

Food for thought.

I read on one of these threads that this airstream forum should be thought of as a group of airstream enthusiasts sitting around a campfire chatting away about all things airstream. I can't imagine a campfire conversation that doesn't eventually discuss food.

I thought this was a lifestyle forum that centered around the shared love of streaming down the road in a silver bullet. I support the idea of a food/cooking subforum because it is a lifestyle topic. No different in my mind than the threads about pets, campgrounds, jokes, etc. Not everyone who enters this community is rebuilding or repairing their airstream. If the present moderators are stretched too thin with the work they do to support the forum - recruit more moderators.

It seems to me this cyber community of friends are interested and want it.

JMHO as I sit around the cyber campfire.

but we do!!!

and the amps/wattage for most kitchen appliances is such that....

using a high enough capacity inverter would SUCK the batteries dry very quickly.

trucker 12v or inverter driven cooking gear is usually 'on' while the truck is running and with a MUCH bigger alternator...

Any resistance type of appliance (Heating) will quickly drain the batteries, so watch your use of crockpots, toasters, electric fondue pots, etc....12v or 110 on an inverter.

We did it! We spoke up and it was heard! Thank you mods! Your work in setting up Stella's Kitchen is really appreciated!

By the way... Who's Stella? Was she someone in Wally's life?

Stella was Mrs. Wally Byam. Her grandson participates at AIR Forums. I've advised him of this new section and Janet's announcement thread. We'll see if he has any stories...

How about "Roadkill Central"? "Fried Chipmunks n' Things"? "Things that taste like chicken"?

BTW, Does Stella's Kitchen serve drinks, the adult kind? When's Happy Hour?
