    Default Inexpesive Manifold Cooker

    Guys,

    My solution to manifold cooking. I purchased a Coleman popcorn popper and some L-brackets. I like the size of the unit and the top snaps in place. I may get abitious and add a piece of metal over the vent holes to allow better heat control. I may also flip the brackets to lower the unit and make it easier to load.

    Just have to use it a few times to keep the Spam Musubi's warm on the way to the cub scout campout and and see how it performs.

    Very clever application! Let us know how it turns out.

    Default Temps with manifold cooker

    I had some idle time so I used my digital thermometer to measure the internal temp of the manifold cooker. I hit a high of 166 degrees in an hour of stop and go commuting in 80 degree weather. Actually, it is more like a slow cooker. I have no doubt it will keep things warm. I guess Phase 2 will be to field test the burrito bake.

    I tested the 'can cooker' in my TJ last week. In the TJ, it's on the inner fender, whereas my CJ, it's bolted to a headbolt, right above the exhuast manifold.

    In the TJ, it doesn't work to well when the outside temps are around 15* F

    My can of chili was 'slightly warm' after an 80 mile drive, and another 2 hours of snow wheeling.

    Works great in the summer, and in Moab in the spring!

    Does the lid slide on and off or is it hinged? If it slides, do you have to remove the cooker to access it? I like the idea of this. I want to see how it holds up.
