I did this once when I drove OTR for Swift flatbed. I was at a shipper in Exeter PA and my load wasn't ready, I couldn't leave to go get something to eat and my lighter for my folding campstove stopped working. I planned on eating a can of great northern beans and getting a soft drink from a coke machine nearby in the shippers office.

I put my beans in the pan and put the pan on top of my truck's Detroit series 60 engine. Plenty of flat space but the vibrating engine caused the pan to move around and fall off unless I stood there and held it. It works but takes awhile, it started raining so I ended up eating luke warm beans.

My dad told me that some of thier trucks, 2-1/2 trucks and Chevy pickups and humvees, had a holder made specifically to hold a tin can on the manifold.

I used to snowmobile a lot and we had a conatiner specifically made to hook onto the engine. It was made for steaming hot dogs and damn it worked good.

Nothing new under the sun.

We used the engine of our MJ-1s to heat out MRE's. Not real sophisticated, but effective.

I just ordered Manifold Destiney, Diesel Dining, and The Roadkill Cookbook for my wife's Christmas presents. The funny part is, she told me that is what she wants this year! Seriously, she has stopped on 5 different occasions to ask the person who hit the deer if they were going to keep it. Guess i taught her right.
