Post Manifold destiny: cooking with your engine
Been planning this camping trip to the Northwest scooter rally in July. Trying to convince the wife to let me do some cooking while we ride :)

Quote:
The cooking times in _Manifold Destiny_ are given in mileage. This cookbook lists many tasty dishes and gives detailed, practical advice on how to prepare them on your car engine.

It works like this: find a hot spot on your engine, then wrap your food in tin foil, wedge the package into the hot spot, and drive....

Pull up the hood when you stop, then unwrap the package and chow down. I tried salmon filets with a suburban; they cooked very nicely after about fifty miles.

This book is a genuine contribution to cookbook literature.


Quote:
Contains some interesting recipes for cooking on your car's manifold. I gave it as a gift to a relative who gave ME a "Road Kill Cookbook".


http://www.amazon.com/Manifold-Destiny- ... 1416596232

Here is a guide to cooking with your engine (geared more toward cars)

Anybody tried anything like this? Im temped to pull the underseat cover on the Majesty and throw some weenies on before the trip.

I don't know if it's gonna work on a scooter.

Too much air moving around the engine ... trying to "cool.off" the heat. It's a air cooled engine.
Cars/trucks ... different animal.

Maybe something that requires LOW heat for a long time ?? You could do a brisket !! j/k

Had the Majesty in mind. There are 3 screws that pull up a cover under the seat, and the head is right there. They actually put heat material on the bottom side of the plastic. Its like an oven in the under seat compartment on a long ride. The heat just kind of rises.

Here is a guy frying a trout on his bike exhaust:

All right ... all right ... you guys can shut the hell up at any time now !! !!
I was usually glad to know that someone/anyone had a heat tab in the pocket.
Didn't see many wheeled vehicles.

I can still ENJOY a stone.cold cup of coffee !! !!

then you would have hated seeing my squad. we had a 109 van which was like an rv. full length work benches on both sides. had the camp cookers and jiffy pop. :D

but used the manifolds of every wheeled vehicle to heat the mre packets. dry socks, gloves etc.

I've actually mounted a small bread pan under the hood of my 4x4. Even seals the front and side edges against the hood liner. :)
Good for throwing a few hotpockets or leftover pizza in and such for warm food by lunch time during the cold months on snow runs. (All wrapped in a few layers of foil)

Years ago - I got glass baby bottles and would head the baby's milk on the intake manifold as we drove on vacation.
A few years ago I took some leftover venison and cut it into thin strips, added onions, and peppers...we drove up into northern Michigan to our deer camp and had a hot lunch on the way making Michigan Philly Cheese Steak Sandwiches....heated the same way...on the manifold in aluminum foil.
