TO COOK MTU A FORD V-t
St. Louis, Mo. J— Roy P. Sutta
jrlin has learned how to cook with
i Ford V-8. .
Sutherlln, a Boi^Scout field
axeoutlTe In Miasmitt, cooks his
awn meals on his automobile eu
jflne while covering his territory.
"It's Simple," he said. "Wrap
a hot dog, steak or hamburger in
tin toil and place it on the motor
block. After a while you have the
meat well-done, rare or medium.
Hear Your Favorite
All you have to know Is the mile
The mileage part is v not so
simple. It took Southerlin months
to compute the heat of his en
gine and the cooking time for a
Now he could write an auto
mohile-englne cook book. In his
Ford V-8, for instance, it takes
about 100 miles of driving to
broil a steak. Hot dogs are ready
at 50 miles.
Sutherlin got the idea indirect
ly from the Boy Scouts he guides.
In his group they use the tin. foil
cooking method over hot embers
so they don't have to lug along a
frying pan on hikes.
I ^'One day," Sutherlin said, "the
idea struck me. I bought a steak
and some buns. I went to the
parking lot to get my car and
wrapped the meat in some foil."
He said he felt like a man
hiding the body when he fastened
the meat on the engine block and
slammed the hood. He was glad no
one saw him. He tried his steak
after about 7 5 miles. It was a bit
pare, but good. Experiments taught
him that 100 miles was perfect for
a half-ijnch thick steak in his car.
He tried to cook vegetables
on the engine but they wouldn't
respond. Now Sutherlin has
learned they can be cooked by at
taching a pot to the manifold,
which is hotter than the engine.
When he masters the mileage,
he will have vegetables bubbling
on his manifold and a steak siz
zling just above hsi carbureator.
Sutherlin cautioned motorists
who might like to try his idea to
keep the meat package away
from a sparkplug, or it will cause
That migh ruin a good steak,
or perhaps a good car.
