I ususally cook outside like this (terrible photo)

 

On our last trip I cooked in the tent, it is the first time I have ever done so but the rain was torrential. We would have ended up with a pan of water had I not done so. I often use a Trangia when camping which is what I used then. If you look at the picture under the trangia is a grey mat, this is a plumbers soldering mat that is supposed to take very high temps. It comes with us every trip just in case and this is the first time we have used it. Our son was in the bedroom pod the whole time I was cooking and I never moved from that position by the stove. I know some will say don't do it but if you are sensible the it can be done safely. (Hubby is a fire engineer he wouldn't have let me do it if he didn't think it was OK, we had both fire extinguisher and fire blanket close by)

I've just realised I am cooking the same meal in both pictures

Thanks everyone. I feel abit happier about my intention on cooking in the tent built in porch now.

The cooker I have has a guard thing at the back and stands on a proper cooker stand.   

The tent has a "back" door and when I am cooking the kids will be told that they don't use the porch - they either stay in the tent or go in and out through the back.

The gas will be turned off when not in use (I am intending on having the gas cannister outside the tent - although need to test this out first).

Complete novice!!!!   

Planned 2012 camping (so far)
May - the field at the top of our lane with half the village!
July - Waxham Sands
August - wild camping in a field near Llanthony Priory, Wales
