Cooking in a hot tent?

So I recently purchased a hot tent and stove, and during my research into people using these, I noticed a lot of people cooking directly inside the tent on the wood stove. Is this a common thing? It would seem to me like it could be problematic, but as I researched it became obvious it is a common occurrence. Does anyone here happen to have experience or insight into this?

try a search on for Robin or on bushcraftusa for beavertail (same guy).
He does a fair amount of hot tenting.

I went out last winter with a hot tent and stove. We cooked everything on top of the stove. It work great.

Cooking inside the tent directly on the stove is a common occurrence. I do it all the time and have for years.

If you keep your tent clean and stay out of habituated wildlife spots you should not have a problem (provided your tent was designed for such use and you know how to vent moisture and food scents out).
Feverishly avoiding "a steady stream of humanity, with a view that offers little more than butts, boots, elbows and backsides". (description quote from Joe Hackett)

A friend of mine set up a wall tent off the Calkins brook road awhile back for deer hunting, They did all there cooking in it on the wood stove, They went out hunting one morning an came back an found there camp an tent destroyed. A mother an cubs did a number on it.

When we set ours up we put a tarp over the tent an make a porch an set up a table an cook out there.

I suppose the only issue is with critters and bears in warmer weather, winter hot tent cooking is the way to go.
