    I love grilled pork chops and I can do four to five runs on one bottle.
    10 min to heat the grill
    4min cook on each side
    5 min burn to clean the grill

    Still plenty of fuel to fire up for the next run but not enough
    to cook with.
    Grill cools long before I'm done eating and gets stashed pretty quick.

    If your running hard,there isn't much time for grilling
    So 2 cans of fuel will last a good while.

    The cheap Chi-Com Burton oven nearly burned my truck to he ground... fried the floor covering and started smoking... woke up just in time.

    I have a 435 HP Caterpillar oven that will cook anything I want and it's standard equipment for my Peterbilt... just figure out how many miles it takes to cook your meal and set it on the exhaust manifold...

    Hahaha, I have the woman part. Apparently we have to be married, and I have to have driven for Roehl for 6 months before she can ride (and cook) with me.

    Glad you brought that up.. about the 92mm fan.. most ppl think the cooler is dead..lol.. I have read many post complaining about the cooler stop working..if you have one of those air blowers that hooks to your seat.. blow out the fan once a month..if not just use canned air... the fan is the only moving part..it only has 3 parts.. well four if you count both the heat sinks... heat sink x2..Peltier cooler..and a fan..all of which can be replaced..the cooler is still fine.. and a neat trick if you want heated cooler.. is reverse the wires ..lol..
    1500/3000 peak watt inverter has worked great with 700 watt micro.. coffee maker.. 1000w sauce pan.. cell chargers..laptop..printer..

    Just fire up the Rigmaster and use the microwave that I bought at Wal-mart for $70, and always have fresh coffee from my Mr Coffee in the am.

    Use a "beverage heater"( similiar to a 12 volt imersion heater) to heat water for instant oatmeal and to wash face and brush teeth.

    As for keeping stuff cold, I use the rv type refrigerator that I ordered with my truck. Even has its own freezer compartment! One of tne best options I put on truck next to the rigmaster.

    I used to do this with my CAT when I parked. The twin turbos made a nice crevice that holds a can of soup/ pork & beans, etc just perfect. I'd park, go in shower and get cleaned up. By the time I got back, my can was nice and warm. Use gloves to take it off the turbos....

    Nowadays I have a microwave and 12v lunchbox. Fuel is to high to leave truck running to cook while I am inside.
