Cooking on your engine

For those who enjoy preparing meals on your car engine, I found a great cookbook.

I cooked a Wood Duck on the way home from hunting once on the engine block of my 84 K-5 blazer. We wrapped the duck in tin foil from a leftover hotdog and added a leftover fruit cocktail. From what I remember it was pretty good, it took care of the munchies and that was the important part.

The best memory was cooking Dinty Moore canned chicken on an D-6 outside of Meteetse, WY.

The most unusual was stolen steaks from the officer's mess cooked on the main steam stop valve on a B&W boiler.

Commonly on an F-250.

Ever cooked a duck encased in clay and covered with coals?

I remember a show on the history channel about the old style jeeps...

There were a few that had a rack build ontop of the engine so you could drop a can o soup into it, and it would warm up for you. The guy said if you didnt punch a hold in the top, you'd have a real mess on your hands, and a jeep that smelled like baked beens wasnt very sneeky (or something to that effect)

I'm a thinking thats not a bad idea to retrofit something like that to the mercedes... u know, save on food costs during road trips?

It was common practice back in the mines, to warm your lunch on the manifold of the diesel-powered air compressors. Some of us got pretty creative and made cooking vessels for placement on the engine, but they were'nt any good for anything more than warming stuff up... Did try baking potatoes, but they were kinda dried out after four hours on the manifold... seems ther was too much "wind" from the engine fan, pulling across the engine and out thru the radiator.

Hedgehog wrapped in clay works well, some Romany gypsies I knew called it "hot-chi" or something like that.

You don't have to kill it - just wrap it up (2 - 3 inches thick), bury it under the fire and 3 hours later the clay comes off, along with the spines.

It's good food.

Should also work with porcupines.

Dishwasher Salmon is GOOD! I used an Autoclave to cook Walleye sometimes.

That's the way I cooked the damned duck! It was a boy scout survival 3-day thing and we snared a duck on day 2 or 3. Anyway we were hungry as young teenaged boys could possibly be without becoming cannibalistic. Scoutmaster was so impressed with the snaring that he taught us that trick. That was one good duck!

Really, how do you snare a duck? I would like to learn that one. I need to find a good survival book like the one I wrote about awhile back. Teaching kids survival skills and make shift cooking methods is the algebra of life.
