On the paving screed in the summer, there isn't anyplace that isn't HOT. The bigger problem is keeping things cool.

I heard a story years ago from a roofer buddy. They would do 'mop roofs', which consists of a 'tar pot' on the ground run by a furnace to get the tar hot enough to pump up on the roof. He said they would throw potatoes in the pot for a couple of minutes, pull them out and let the tar cool a bit. They would then peel the tar off and it would also de-skin the 'perfectly cooked potato'! He never mentioned that they tasted bad but he did say one of the guys on the crew did die of cancer!!

The “Make Mine Medium Rare” article has several roast beef recipes as does the "Manifold Cookery" article (Blackened Roadfish, Roadside Stew, Interstate 10 Chicken Wings, etc.) and the latter – conveniently – gives the cooking times in miles instead of minutes/hours.

Also, most articles recommend triple wrapping whatever is to be cooked in tin foil, which should take care of any concern about engine odors permeating the food.
I cannot find either of these articles online - does anyone know if they are online ?

Thanks - JIm
