    My daughter and I took a road trip up northern California. I saw a recipe book a while back and just remembered about engine cooking.

    We drove a 4 Runner Truck. I used 5 sheets of foil sprayed with Pam. We successfully cooked salmon (buttered/lemon/salt/pepper).
    We also kept precooked white rice on another spot of the engine.

    We had two wonderful meals in Glacier Point in Yosemite and another meal in Tuolomme in our primitive campsite.

    I wonder if anyone has tried this on a Toyota Corolla Car. If anyone knows which spot to use – please share. Thanks

    I cooked my ear of corn on a 4Runner manifold… modern cars don’t seem to have as much room as the old engine compartments which my today’s standards were quite cavernous.

    I’ve always been too scared to do it, as I have only considered cooking fish. The fear is that the juices from the fish will leak out onto the hot engine block!

    I would think that watery fluids would only evaporate on the engine block but fatty liquids might be a hazard, but I would think that it would take a large volume to be a danger.
