Manifold Cooking.. anyone tried it?

Sorry.. not much tech here but..
I am thinking a manifold cooker might make my 240 D the ultimate fishing car.
Just curious if anyone has tried it?... there seems to be plenty of room on a 240 under there. Wonder if a burrito would taset a little sooty?
( tried to post a link to mainfold cooking.. but could not)

Might be a whole new meaning there to " diesel purge"

Turbos get pretty hot too, TURBO COOKER DELUX! Sounds like a marketing scam. I love my 300

Did it on my IVECO 38 tonner in the winter....sometimes though, I'd go hungry after a rough ride through the Italian county side...Reti and Spoleto,
and especialy through Belgium....road down to Antwerpen ...find my Cornish pastie was gone.!

Need a cage strapped to the exhaust manifold....you have to experiment on cooking time......when I was loaded it took about 30 miles to do a Cornish.

Been meaning to try that for quite a while now. My brother gave me a book, "Manifold Destiny", which is an underhood cookbook. Easy read, gives local recipes, explains the all important "triple wrap" procedure, etc.

I did one of those 50 cent pies that you find at Safeway...the house brand.

I think the one I wrapped up was a chocolate one. I threw some tin foil around it and tossed it in next to the crossover pipe on the V-6 van. As I drove to my friends house (uphill) the smell got tastier and tastier. Damn thing smelled like a homemade pie!

The person who ate it disagreed

Apparently the crust was the only delicious smelling/tasting part...

Guess I am going to "date myself". Back when the Army had "C" rations it was very popular to heat the delicious cans of food in the Gen Set manifold.

We made the mistake of going camping on the west coast a few years ago. It was about 45F in July. Brr... We had planned to make pizza, but the dough wouldn't rise because it was so cold. So, we put it in a pot and put it under the hood of our Volvo. It worked great! An hour later, the dough had risen, and we could make the pizzas. The engine compartment was clean, and the food was well sealed, so there were no unusual flavours.

locomotive

The engineers on locomotives like to cook on the engines as they go down the tracks but sometimes they forget their food and 3 days later you go to ad coolant and find a dried up rock hard burrito. Sometimes they forget to poke holes in the tops of cans and it blows everywhere. Sometimes I wonder if that is on purpose!

I did that once on a John Deere combine. You wouldn't believe the smell spaghetti-o's make when burning on a manifold.
