Talking Cooking can food ACO Truck style!

This will work with any form of car/truck! I've learned this trick of the trade from a friend that used be homeless and living out of her car!

Take 1 can of food,..either with flip top lid, or one you need a can opener for. But, I highly recommended flip top lid, Because you have to hold it away from you when you open it.. it boils, and the food is hot and can shoot out. Then open the hood of your ACO truck, place the can food on the engine go and turn the truck on, run the engine for about 3 mins.
And after cooking and carefully opening you can of food,...enjoy your lunch!

My husband used to do this with his lunch on the skidder...a bonus was that the vibration from the diesel engine caused the can to roll around, effectively stirring the food constantly while it cooked.

There is also a cookbook that tells how to cook a variety of items under the hood of a car-it's called "Manifold Destiny":

I was watching a WWII documentary about the fighting after D Day, and they were interviewing a guy that was in a Sherman tank. He said that his crew kept a large tank of water near the exhaust manifold, and if they came across a recently killed pig, one of them would go out the escape hatch on the bottom of the tank, drag it back inside (I assume field dress it) then toss it in the water to cook. Then later on, when everything settled down, dinner was served.

I prefer my pig cooked over mesquite.

In Texas, BBQ pig ainít to be found, but when Iíve been out of the state I have tried some. When youíre raised on beef, pork just donít cut it as BBQ.

I guess they could have just roasted it by the exhaust. Of course then it would have tasted like gas and oil fumes, so I guess you just do the best you can with what youíve got.

No offence meant. Very strangely enough, since I've become a fishetarian, the thought of pork or chicken makes me feel physically ill -- like thinking about eating boiled baby, horribly enough. On the other hand, the smell of beef cooking still makes my mouth water; go figure. Apparently my taste buds are holding something against my moo-brothers that they don't have against my cluck-brothers and snortle-brothers.

Nonetheless, that story increases my gratitude for men who can make do. If I were running around in a Sherman tank getting shot at, with nothing to eat but K-rations and whatever I could "appropriate" from the locals without blood being shed ... well, boiled pig would be tasting pretty good to me again, very doubtless.

Iím not quite as omnivorous as an opossum, but Iím close. I have yet to get up the nerve to suck the guts out of a crawdad, and I am seriously turned off by boiled okra, but if it is legal for sale for human consumption in the US Iíll probably eat it.

Although I do feel that corned beef is a serious waste of a biscuit and it should be banned.

And why IS that stuff legal, incidentally? Now there's something that tastes like you scraped it off the bottom of someone's boat ...
