Cooking on hot engine components is a time honored tradition. We had an engineer who us to bake the most wonderful lasagnas, enchiladas, and cakes on the exhaust manifold of our boat's diesels.

You redirected the exhaust inside the car so you don't have to run the heater in the winter.
You've routed the exhaust into the inflatable boat tail to keep it inflated.
Ok, I don't know. Tell us.

This is what I have been thinking about for a while now...sounds good in theory, but I would like to see if someone else has tried it yet.

and I'm gonna have to say you have left us pondering this question long enough......so please do tell....
