    They're allowed, I don't believe that charcoal grills are.

    If only there was somewhere one could look for info like this. If there was I think they should call it a "FAQ" which would stand for "frequently asked questions."

    And if it did exist I think the wording should go something like this, doesn't have to be exact, though:
    May I use a stove to cook?
    The use of a outdoor cooking appliance is only permitted in the Car Camping areas. Cooking in the Tent Camping area is not permitted. The following are the requirements for the use of a outdoor cooking appliance:
    1. All cooking appliances shall bear a certification or listing from a nationally recognized testing or certification organization.
    2. Cooking appliances that only utilize propane as the fuel source shall be permitted. No wood, charcoal, flammable/combustible liquid cooking appliances permitted.
    3. One cooking appliance per camp site shall be permitted.
    4. Maximum amount of propane per campsite shall not exceed 20 pounds or 48 pounds of water capacity.
    5. A minimum of 3 feet of clearance shall be maintained at all times while the cooking appliance is in use. No combustible material shall be within 3 feet of the cooking appliance.
    6. Cooking appliances shall only be used during the hours of 7:00 am to 2:00 am PST.
    7. Cooking appliances, when in use, shall not be left unattended.

    In my opinion just buying your meals from a vendor and bringing snacks is better than cooking for yourself. Then small amount of money you saved isnoutweoghed by the massive pain in the ass of cooking and cleaning in the desert. The only thing worth using that stove for is coffee or knife hits.

    Ice to keep your food cold costs more than eating vendor food

    Not sure if serious, but this is an interesting thought. Bear with me here...

    Assuming you showed up to car camping with no ice at all, you're stuck paying, IIRC, $10 per 10 lb bag. To keep one cooler cold, let's be liberal and say you'll spend $70 on ice from Thursday through Sunday afternoon. That's a lot, but let's run with it. Let's also assume you'll buy 3 meals on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, and 1 meal on Thursday = 10 meals total. The average cost of a vendor meal at Coachella is definitely greater than $7. So no, I don't think this theory checks out unless you're fine with eating dry food for breakfast and lunch, then buying dinner. Even then, and assuming you're only spending $30 on ice, 4 vendor dinners is probably going to cost more than $30.

    Anyway, you're probably buying ice for your beer and water anyway, so this whole exercise is pointless. Not to mention the fact that you're probably camping in a group and everyone is helping pay for ice.

    All that being said, I bring a propane stove that is only really used for breakfast, and a few times we've made pasta or grilled cheese for dinner at 1am. Really simple stuff that no adult should consider a 'hassle'. IMO, a propane stove is a necessity!

    We've always gone weekend 2, so it's always been so f*cking hot that none of us wanted to spend the energy to cook. Lol. Now we're going weekend 1. However, we do pretty well with just bringing food that doesn't need to be cooked. So, just because you don't bring a stove doesn't mean you have to buy every meal. We usually buy 1 meal a day and eat the rest at camp. LOTS of fruit, yogurt, cereal, sandwiches (last year croissants and deli meats were a it), potatoe/egg salad, etc.

    I don't know how people could live with out a grill! My group brings a grill (sometimes two) and a camping stove. Breakfast burritos every morning and then just a mix of burgers, brats, dogs, "hobo meals" and stuff like that for lunches and dinners. There's a good thread in the camping forum that talks all about the good stuff you can cook at your campsite. I just don't understand how people have the energy to party for four days without eating real food.
