100% outside. I boil the kettle inside in the morning to heat water for the French press, but that's all our pup stove ever gets used for. Pup has a BBQ that hangs outside which we use quite a bit for grilling and as an "oven" for roasting potatoes, etc. Tin foiled veggies are great on the barbie. I have a 2 burner propane stove that I set up on the picnic table for all of our frying needs. We don't camp in bear country...we just don't want the inside of the pup to smell like supper. We do eat at the dining table inside since we don't have a screen tent outside. We did have a screen tent when we were tenters, but since we graduated to a pup, we're like hey, this thing is like a big screen tent on wheels. Let's use it!
