I cook in the front of our tent, but always make sure there is plenty of ventilation and someone is always there, watching whilst cooking.
Also always have a carbon monoxide detector, a fire extinguisher and fire blanket

My advice would be to have something to protect the groundsheet that is unlikely to melt if a hot frying pan or other hot object lands on it.

Hi All
Thanks for your help and advice regarding this matter. We have now brought a large porch to strap onto our new (to us) tent, we will be trying this out for cooking in two weeks time when we once again visit North Wales.

Bit late for my comments! But I wouldnt cook in our tent - the steam will increase water inside the tent and I dont like the idea of cooking fat vapour on the inside. I would cook in the porch though, ensuring proper airflow.

We have a Hi-Gear Kalahari 8, which is a large tunnel type tent, I always cook outside but on the couple of occasions I've had to cook inside due to weather I've always had both side doors open for ventilation while cooking and for a good half an hour after and made sure the stove is in a secure position.

A fire blanket is small & not expensive. I got one from Arco after a risk assessment for an organisationís BBQ for a party. We have one in the MH kitchen area too.

Just to add my twopenneth, when I cook inside, I use a mini Halogen cooker that roasts, fries, grills and boils, a low wattage hob with a pressure cooker that cooks veg in 6 minutes and a low watt small kettle for the tea. All safely operated on my proper RCD hook up lead. Not enough steam or fumes to be a problem.
