Can you cook in a tent with the door open?
Ventilation is the key and making sure that the wind doesn’t blow the gas out. Cooking in an open porch using a gas or an electrical appliance as seen in the pic above will be fine IMHO, as it is well ventilated. I would strongly advise to keep the heating source/naked flame well away from the tent though.
Can you cook on gas in a tent?
You shouldn’t normally use a gas, petrol or other combustion cooker inside your tent for two reasons: the risk of fire and the possible build-up of carbon dioxide (or worse, carbon monoxide) if there’s inadequate ventilation.
Can I cook under a tarp?
We use a tarp to cook under if it is raining. It’s really usefull and versatile. Much cheaper than an extension too. Also, if it’s used as sun shelter you get the advantage of a breeze rather than the more closed in extensions.
