Manifold Meat
Sat Feb 07, 2009 10:35 am

Some of you may have heard of my dream to build an oven into my engine compartment. I had heard of truck drivers and the like cooking food with the heat of their engine when I was a kid. So when I got a bus I figured that would be pretty cool. We are always trying to figure out ways to make our power usage more efficient, plus having a meal ready when you stop is a bonus. Kinda like killing two birds with one stone.

I have talked about this with several of you and most had heard of it and/or had cool stories about it. I figured there had to be a cookbook out there somewhere with recipes that showed how to cook in miles instead of minutes. How many miles do you think you would have to drive to cook a steak in your engine compartment?

So I was bored this morning and did a little research. Gotta love the internet! There are actually a couple of good books and sites online.

Such as Manifold Destiny: A Cookbook.

Or this Australian Site.

I have had many a can of soup or chili heated on the exhaust manifold in my career. Sure was nice when pull top cans were invented.
