Scott DeSimon, writer at http://www.bonappetit.com/ stumbled across a quick and fun way to make a large quantity of corn on the cob. Get a large cooler, throw in the corn and add a couple quarts of boiling water... that's it. 30 minutes later the corn was cooked perfectly and ready to eat.

I can't be the only one that has never hear of this. Have any of you tried this? Any other easy kitchen hacks you think a lot of people don't know about?

Sorry for the terrible pun in the title, but we figured everyone here was mature enough to handle it.

For a different spin on this kludge, get rid of the wheel and belt and attach the spit directly to the motor. Then, depending on the motor's RPM, your pig roaster turns magically into sideways bacon-flavored eggbeaters.

So we put a burger patty grill on yo' muffler so you can grill while you drive!

Just fasten the attachment to the muffler and drive for a while. Thankfully no exhaust actually comes into contact with the patty: the hot air is used to heat a metal plate between the two instead. It's a good thing too, because that would be one smokehouse style burger I would not want to touch!
