The  RV cooking Guide Cook a Thanksgiving Meal in your RV

Made By: Travels with Ted The RV Camping Experts November 21st, 2023

RVers can easily cook one casserole in the oven and one additional side (like mashed potatoes) on the stove.  Use simple recipes. 

Cook One Pot & One Pan Sides

Using a grill or portable smoker is the easiest way to cook the turkey.  A turkey breast will fit on most portable grills.

Grill the Trukey

A portable pellet grill is expensive, but it the ultimate way to cook a turkey breast while camping!

Upgrade your Meal with a Pellet Grill

Never shop for an RV trip, especially Thanksgiving, without a list. Planning meals will ensure you don’t buy more food than you have room to store.

Have a Meal Plan

One of the easiest ways to avoid being overwhelmed by cooking in an RV is to complete all prep work before cooking.

Prep Food before Cooking

Placing a pizza stone in the bottom of your RV oven will lead to better heat distribution, and therefore, more evenly cooked food.
