Engine cooking

Started by Quirky Momma , author of quirkymomma.com 4/28/2012 8:03:51 PM

No joke, I heard about this on NPR (are they a credible "camping" source???)  They had a blurp on a guy who traveled cross country and would grill steaks, or barbeque chicken, even scramble eggs, on a pan ontop of the engine in his car.

He said it was "totally hygienic" as he wrapped it in foil...

Would you try it??

You can cook may different types of food on your car engine.

In the miltary we have been doing this for decades, it doesn't matter if its leftovers that need reheating or pogie bait (term for food used to bribe or trade for other items).  As long as you wrap it well and use a heat resistant material (foil is awesome) you will get a warm delicious meal for when your boots hit the ground!

Hey if I was hungry enough, I guess I would try cooking anywhere?  I agree about the video:)  Thanks for posting it Jean.

Ha!  Me too, I just can't wrap my mind around the fact that I would be cooking with chemicals (car grease, road gunk, oil, etc) that close to my food.

Well I can remember cooking an egg on the sidewalk in Florida when I was a kid- so I guess you can cook on an engine! Not sure if I would do it- but Laurie's right- if I was hungry enough I probably would!

That is awesome - sure, in fact I think I will now cook all my meals this way, even when I'm home.  Goodbye grill...hello engine!
