A hot truck engine is good for more than just heating up the surrounding air . Talk about tail pipe cooking, Southern Style!
TRUCK TAIL PIPE COOK'IN ON THE ROAD!
I HEARD A TALE - OF A TAIL PIPE - a very unusual tale.
The way things are going, you can practically boil an egg in your car. Well, the idea is not so far fetched after all.
A man told his tale about using an extension on his truck's tail pipe to strap a metal gallon sized bucket for cooking in camp fires he got from an Army&Navy store. So he connected that bucket with a lid on it, to that tail pipe's extension. One time he put beans in the bucket and seasoned the beans with garlic and onions, and then he tightened the lid down with two clamps on either side.
He would drive to work about 12 to 15 miles and another 12 to 15 miles back home. At his job site, his pick up truck sat all day in the hot Texas sun.
His dinner would be ready when he got back home. Sometimes he would cook a roast instead.
So, that idea I had earlier about putting a TV Dinner on top of the engine under the hood to cook it wasn't so bad after all.
I imagine if you Google it, Tail Pipe cooking on the road. you might come across some articles about it. :)
