Seems to me that a propane BBQ grill allows for Shishkabobs, and other
grilling. You could bake bread on a spit.
Because a propane (or charcoal) grill provides diffuse heat, as compared
to a Coleman stove you could produce foil dinners, eggs cooked in orange
halves, or corn-on-the-cob steamed in aluminum foil, etc., etc. Foil
Of course, with some preparation, you can encase foods in a thick layer
of dried mud and bake it.
If, by no-pot, you really mean "no cleanup" you could used double
freezer bags to cook pasta, and sauces, etc. in a pot of boiling water
(assuming your gas grill is properly tuned and will not smoke the pot),
then you discard the boiled water.
