Model T Ford Forum: Forum 2011: Model T cooker question
Top of pagePrevious messageNext messageBottom of page Link to this message  By Will Copeland on Thursday, June 23, 2011 - 03:52 pm:

Going to a show this Sunday and would like to cook some Hotdogs and Sauerkraut in my cooker. The trip should take about an hour or so. My question is how much water do I use in the cooker without making a mess. Should I plan on adding more water as I drive?

I don't care for "sauerkraut" and don't have a cooker so I just do the "dogs" in the Rad..........Sorry Will,,,,,But this will get your question back to the top....bump Carl

It may take longer than an hour to cook things up properly. But then again, hotdogs only need to be "heated". The kraut is another thing all together. Only put enough water to barely cover the dogs. We found that lining the cooker with foil SLOWS the cooking down considerably. Check it after 39 minutes and you'll have a feel for how it is progressing and what you should do from then on.

THIRTY NINE Minutes??? I thought it was Forty one! Guess it depends on the size of the Hot Dog??

Think I'll just go with 2/3rds of a minute.

We use an oven bag to keep the cooker clean. I have cooked brats, baked beans, chili, a roast. Just put all the fixings into the bag, tie it up and drive. John

That's hilarious!!! I'm such a dope. I meant to type 30 minutes!! But 39 or 41 will do just fine!

Have the kraut cooked and just heat up.

Use lotsa kraut so you'll have extra gas in case you run low.

That was sposed to be 2/3rds of an hour. Duh.

You guys cant even type. Should you be cooking and driving at the same time? Ha....

Let us know, in the interest of science, how it goes.

I take two small 'Tom & Jerry' glasses . . you know, the ones for orange juice . . and put a good size double sheet of tin foil in one - 'squish' the other glass in the first one .. and you have a great little container for 'Kraut' in the little 'cup'. That keeps the kraut and water separate!
The reality of it is . . cook 'em (the hot dogs) first . . . throw 'em in the cooker - and you will get more response than you can imagine!
Oh the FUN!!
I have more fun from that cooker . . than anything else!

Someone must have photos of The manifold cooker in action. Please, no more roadkill either.

Lets see your manifold cooker pics.

Will,

Franks and Beans sounds much better. Have fun at the show. From the pictures it looks like a good time.

Now thats what I'm talking about. I can almost smell it. I think a belated fathers day gift to myself is in order, seeing as I do not have this valuable accessory yet.

So those oven cooking bags don't melt in the cooker?

That was my question as well! Those bags dont melt to the oven?

Now I have to go out and get a cooker. Dave

No science, fill the cooker with kraut and precooked weiners (hotdogs), drive. Will start smelling right away and should be perfect whenever you get where you're going. Let the wife worry about how to clean the cooker.

Andy

Wife said a few words about the possibility of Andy being from the Dinosaur time and a place she would stick the cooker if he were here. Just be warned Andy, itís not a good place.

Willis,
I got mine at http://www.andersontimer.com/Manifold%20Cooker%20ad%20page.htm

No connection on my part. Just good quality and we're enjoying it!

Andy,

I read your post regarding "pre-cooked weiners" and got an image of Anthony Weiner strapped to a T engine all roasted up. I think I lost my appetite for the day.
