You know how I love change, (cough, cough).  The Exhaust Burger Dinner will change every busy man or woman’s life.  And just in time for that office-party-gift-exchange you must participate in or else be branded the proverbial “doglog” in the punchbowl.

I just wear this damn hat to fool them. I really cooked the burgers while driving home from the casino.

With this handy-dandy device….There’s No more rushing home from

  • Work
  • Committee Meetings
  • Choir
  • Gym

to cook dinner. A home-cooked meal is just a drive around the block, a few times with the …..

Exhaust Burger

Add the burger in the handy-dandy pocket. It’s not cooked by the fumes, but by the heat generated by those fumes as you drive your car.

Sorry, only one burger at a time, but if traffic is bad…you can hop out while I-5 looks like a parking lot and change those patties. (Hint: Keep a foil pouch in the back seat and toss the cooked burgers in.)

Featured in Design Boom in 2008, I’m just not sure why it doesn’t come standard with a new car purchase. Smiley

You know you want one…or two if you have a dually.

Making life easier through change!!

About Barb

I escaped from a hardscrabble farm in Oklahoma. I'm not sure why people think I have an accent. I miss the sunshine, but not the fried foods.

    Great ideas come from great people’s mind. 🙂


  2. El Guapo says:

    Part of me is really impressed, part of me is extremely appalled.
    Just not sure which part will win the battle yet…


  3. Patois says:

    Gracious! Hard to imagine anyone being willing to buy this thing or eat the burgers it produces, even after being assured it’s the heat and not the exhaust that cooks ’em,


  4. Elyse says:

    Is this the remedy for those nights when I’m just too exhausted to cook?


  5. Helen says:

    Aunty Bab’s helpful hints! Thanks for the tip. It’ll make my life easier for sure…Helen


  6. Beth says:

    I’ll put that idea in my OMG! file.


  7. Shudder. Sadly, I can just about picture the market for this ‘wonderful new toy’. Cooking and cooking products have really taken off here and everybody sees themselves as the next Master Chef. Master Chef on the road…
    You are a very, very twisted woman.


  8. A burger from your car-bur(ger)-ator. Sounds ideal if cooking for two. Could be problematic for larger families. Thanks, Barb. I’ll put this idea on the back burner.


  9. souldipper says:

    Well there ya go! If you have to miss all those healthy exhaust fumes, fear not. All is not lost. For a mere 31.99, a delicious burger can be delivered, piping hot, to your door.

    Love inventor’s minds. I’m looking for an automatic window washer. Have been for years…no one’s invented it yet to my knowledge. Still stick men on horrid ladders who scare the hell out of business women sitting in their offices scratching their red spots with supposed privacy! 😀


    • Barb says:

      Yes, and it’s irritating when sleeping at one’s desk to have some industrious guy rapping on the window. I wonder how many women are corporate window washers?

    PS–Thanks, “dog log” has now been permanently added to my vocabulary.


  11. Al says:

    A car burger…hmmmmm. If you ate one, does that make you a carburetor?


  12. Roxie Matthews says:

    I read about a couple who went on a cross-country car trip, tenting every night. The wife would put together a dinner in an aluminum foil packet, the husband would wedge it against the engine block, and by the time they reached their destination. the chicken and vegetables, or the pot roast would be fully cooked. But I believe a meatloaf leaked grease and caused an engine fire that brought an end to their innovative vacation. And knowing how men are, he probably wanted to get in a few more miles and every night, the food was overcooked, dry and tough.

    How do you clean that burger cooker by the way? Is it dishwasher safe?


    • Barb says:

      It looks like the burger cooker would be dishwasher safe. Yep, I’ve known a couple of folks who cooked on the carburetor, too. They were plenty proud about it.


  13. emjayandthem says:

    Wonder what the aftertaste is like? Ha!


  14. HA! I love it. But tell me… do you get more gas from eating a burger prepared this way? Hmmm, such exhausting work…


  15. Jon says:

    Use a larger size for doing a turkey on the way to a family Thanksgiving.


    • Barb says:

      Okay, Jon….that’s just gross to imagine such a goiter-like appendage on the tailpipe (Even if such a large convenient cooker could be used for stew, too.)


  16. Red says:

    I love it. I have known more than a few ppl who put lunch on the engine block to warm it…whether car, truck, crane…whichever engine is handy. This thing is cute 😉 You are by far, my favorite researcher for must have gadgets ❤ xxx


  17. I have a friend who grew up in Brooklyn and he swears that as a kid the hot dog vendors used to hold the dogs under an auto exhaust pipe to give them more flavor. For some weird reason, I don’t doubt it.


  18. I bet it’s just as tasty as a Whopper from Burger King! But with more exhaust!


  19. Now that’s a handy idea, Barb!
