    Default What can you cook on a jeep engine?

    I was watching a show the other day and the lady was trying to see if you could cook an egg on an engine, so she took two pieces of aluminum foil, put them together, made a little pocket in the two layers and cracked an egg inside. The result was a crappy looking fully cooked egg after she drove around for a little bit. I thought this would be neat to try if it could be done correctly, so any ideas? Maybe just something simple to start out with that I can cook during my 20 minute drive to work.

    I've never done it on my Jeep, but we used to cook ski bum soup(snow and ketchup) on my van. As long as you drink it piping hot it tastes just like Campbell's tomato soup, but as soon as it gets at all cool it's just ketchup and water. I was pretty poor at one point...

    I cook frozen burritos all the time on trailrides. Wrap in foil, put down on the intake and you are good to go. I never had to tape anything. It always stayed in place no matter what kind of terrain we were on. Works great for warming up fried chicken as well.

    Yep, burrito's! Used to do that on the 5 ton bobtail I drove while in the 7th ID (light) (crushed beer can patch, for you old timers!)

    We also took a piece of 3'' pipe, 3'' long, and welded it to a flat plate.

    The plate we drilled a hole in, and mounted it to a head bolt on the engine. Stick a can of stew, spagetti O's, whatever, in it. Presto, hot feild lunch! Just have to make sure you punch a small hole in the top of the can, or it would explode! Ever clean Spagetti-O's of the engine bay/hood of a 5-Ton??

    Hot pockets. Just take out of the box. Leave it in the plastic. Do not wrap in foil. I know, some may say it won't work, the plastic will melt. It doesn't. Lay them down on the side. If you have a 6 cyl, you can put two end to end. Lay them between the valve cover and fuel rail. With a 6 cyl, 20 min should be just right. With a 4 cyl on the other hand, you can only cook one at a time, it takes longer, and you need to squish it on the throttle body under the intake tube. As long as you wedge them in there, they will not fall out. I do it all the time wheeling. Haven't lost one yet.
