I remember that the Jiffy Pop instructions cautioned about the advisibility of trying to use their product over a campfire flame.

This site however, has some useful suggestions for doing just that -

http://www.campingblogger.net/camp-cook ... pcorn.html

Note that Jiffy Pop is supposed to be used for popping corn on a stove, not a campfire. If your campfire ring includes a grill, though, just place a griddle (you do have a cast iron griddle, don’t you?) on the grill and it will pop just fine. We have even used Jiffy Pop directly on the grill with decent results as long as the flames of the fire weren’t too close, which tends to burn the kernels in the thin Jiffy Pop container.


I would think that sort of experimentation would be welcomed in that 1) there is already some data available on the level of success to expect, 2) burners seem quite adept at devising creative ways to push the envelope and do what was once thought of as pure fantasy, and 3) he has just engaged in a harmless ritual of his own making that holds meaning for him.

What's the worst that could happen? Either the guy figures out a way to use BM energy to bring his corn yet to be popped to life, or he finds that in this case, the suits in the ConAgra test kitchen were right and he completes the learning experience by consuming the unpalatable char and finding out the many alternative ways to pop corn over a campfire that does not involve future Jiffy Pop purchases

My advise is to microwave your popcorn and be done with it. Jiffy Popping it on "...the still hot ashes of the Man...' is such a remarkably bad idea I wonder sometimes if the Darwin Awards weren't thought up for people like you.


Not to pile-on Dr. Pyro (who, as it was pointed out previously, should be using his advanced degree to promote the burning of *more* things, not less), but it's quite possible that if he followed his own advice and placed the metallic Jiffy Pop container in a microwave and used the technological magic of the high energy radiation burn, he might be a contender for a Darwin Award himself ( posthumously even)...or does that already explain the hair?

And a big thank you to all the well-wishers and wish-wellers.

I don't know Dr. Pyro, but he seems to be somewhat respected around here. But his comment lowered the median level of respect I give all humans to nearly zero. Burners (humans) can be such douchebags. While I know that he was concerned about MOOP, I think he failed to recognize the fact that you too were worried about MOOP. Doesn't he realize that his comment makes me want to freely SPEW popcorn everywhere next year?

If you can roast marhmallows on a flamethrowing penis then popping some popcorn on some coals seems like it would be simple enough.

I don't currently have any tattoos, but if I did, this is the sort of simple yet profound wisdom that I would consider sharing with the rest of the planet.

Thanks for distilling otherwise complex and confusing arguments down to their basics.

It seems too obvious - to some - to say "sure make some popcorn, that would be cool!"

I like you a LOT, Doc, though an International Man Of Mystery like you is not easy to get to know. Another week in the desert with you is definitely required. 8)

I got swept away in the tide of naked folks circling the flames, so, did not see how the popcorn came out.

I not only got to see someone with Jiffy-Pop at the Man, but was offered Man Popcorn! Tastier than it sounds.. hard to believe, I know. :)
