hi guys i would like to find some manifold cooker recipe's
as we are doing a 4 day trip through the Australian high country bush
so any recipe would be great
Look for the book Manifold Destiny usually available for $5 - $10 on Ebay.
Doug and Karen Dachenbach published a wonderful cookbook called the "Manifold Gourmet". I would think there are still some copies available.
Maybe I can write a book on the subject? I have a roll of tinfoil and a opossum I shot last Friday. Just need a good road trip to get started. Who wants to try it when its done??
Probably dont want to follow me, right?
Dallas, I know where we can get a couple of parakeets and a cat.
Well I guess they are small enough to fit into the manifold cooker and then a hot dog bun but not enough to fill you up so better bring a lot of potatoes and other fillers.
You know I think this is the fifth time we've eaten those two little parakeets on the forum this winter not counting the number of times they have flown away. The poor little kitten is still being held at gun point so I know I can get him into the cooker without too much trouble.
BBQ sauce or beer braised?
So do the fumes from the car get into what you're cooking?
Never had that problem Robert.
Sounds like a fun way to do lunch! I'M Italian so maybe some peppers and onion with sausage. I bet you'd smell it at every stoplight. Yum!
There is a cooker in classifieds right now
Robert, being first generation Italian and the grandson of an executive chef and the father of two trained chefs (I LOVE to cook), I've made the salsice with pepper and onions in my cooker and they turn out great!!!
Favorite recipe is Manifold Chili, load up mixture in those high temp plastic bags. Line the cooker with tin foil. Add water to the bottom to keep the plastic bag from sticking to the foil or the mixture getting too dry.
Drive about 3 hours, and stop for lunch!
Everybody dumps the contents into the big pot, all share. Bring the Frito's too
I reported this story several years ago but maybe it should be repeated. My son and I have cookers and enjoy making a blueberry topping for ice cream during one evening on our annual club tour. We made the sauce and loaded it into the cookers for about a 15 mile ride. During the ride my son signaled he needed gas and pulled into a station. While gassing up he decided to check the cooker on his car. An older guy at the station was interested in the car and looked into the engine compartment and noticed the cooker. He asked what it was. My son answered, they are blueberries. The old guy said, "you mean this car runs on blueberries?". My son didn't respond but closed the hood and drove off. I wonder who believed the old guy?
Marty I bet it was good.
Maybe someone should organize a southern cooker tour
In all the years here on this forum I have yet to see a manifold cooker with any food in it!
Does anyone have pictures of the best part?

Now that I have him fattened up I don't know if I can fit him in the cooker!
Here is a sample of a normal Saturday in the summer for us. Buffet on the side of a dirt road.
That is why they added a bumper onto the front of a Model T. Too hold the manifold cookers at a picnic.
