Hey, I tried that back in the 60s, I wired a can of pork-n-beans to the exhaust manifold on my old 52 Plymouth 6 banger on the way to a pic-nic. A buddy of mine cooked on the manifold of his tractor trailer rig and did a good job of it. Thanks for the memories.

"DIY" - cooking/baking - story


I saw on the news one time where a guy who worked on a road crew was cooking lunch for everyone (wrapped in aluminum foil). He buried it in the hot blacktop that was in the back of the truck.

Hey Barb, good to see your smiling face...well hmmm, it is good to see you back. For some reason that sounds kinda like the food would have a tar taste to it but hey, I have been wrong before.

You're right Jim. It sure does seem like it would taste like tar. I can't remember what was said about that. Maybe the foil keeps the taste out? Or the guys are so used to the smell that they don't notice the taste?

I should be back home in 2 days and back on the forum regularly.

15 hips of beef weighing 50 lbs each. All that wood to cook them. What ..I have a big appetite

Now if I can only figure out how to get the photos to stay portrait




Tubs and tubs of baked potates and table after table of homemade pies compliments of the little old church ladies.

Its our annual community barb-b-que fundraiser. Dinner, a live band and dancing in the park. The boys in the neighbourhood come by in the morning in their pickups to grab everybodys picnic tables.


Happy August long weekend everybody

I do tend to dapple in gluttony periodically. I used to have a third spit before my diet.
I shall limit myself to 1 pie of each variety

Anybody home!?

I just spent about a half-hour looking for Judy's pork chop recipe in this thread (it's on pg. 22). But now I think I already printed it off a while back and have it in a recipe binder....

Time to go make dinner - chop! chop!

How is everyone's summer going so far?

Yap, we are here, we had pork chops tonight also. Judy also makes some fine zucchini also. When she first mentioned fixin some I was not real thrilled but man I was like a hog in a slop trough when I did taste it, that is some kind of fine eating the way she fixes it. Judy said she was honored that you like her recipe for the chops.

Zucchini is sure good if fixed right---How do you make Judy's zucchini?

Boy, I like 'spell check'---I'd have sworn there was a K in that word.

Hi Barb,
I hope you enjoyed dinner and the summer.

You can already feel the shift in the weather. Last night went down to 12 degrees .
Kids go back to school in a few more weeks
