- 1 each bag lf pita bread
- 1 each piece of aluminum foil
- 1 each better n'burgers
I travel quite a bit. Most of the time i"m on commercial airplanes, but on occasion i have to drive. A few weeks ago i dropped my wife off in a remote part of northern georgia. When i reached tennesee, it was time to stop and refill my cooler. The supermarket had better n burgers at a price much lower than in chicago so i decided to buy four packages. As i was about to check out a thought hit me. Now dear readers, are you sitting down? what you are about to read really happened and i strongly reccomend it to all vlf travelers. I picked up a bag of lf pita bread, a roll of aluminum foil and a bottle of katsup. After paying for my supplies i went to my car and unrolled a piece of foil about three feet long. In the middle of the foil i placed one of the newly purchased better n burgers. The sides were folded and sealed. This left a long foil pack with a "burger" in the middle. Ok, are you ready for this? i popped open the hood of the car and placed the foil packet directly on the engine. The long tails on the packet gave me enough foil to secure the burger on various engine outcropings. I closed the hood and drove for about 30 minutes. After a little experimenting, i learned that it takes about 1 ½ hours to cook the burger if you have it directly on the valve cover. Results may vary. The packet was retrieved, the "burger" was placed into a pita half and i munched merrily along i-2Ahh, manifold destiny.
