Earlier today I watched a bushcrafter cooking eggs by tapping a hole in the top of the egg scrambling the contents with some sort of a stick or metal wire and then placing the egg on a bed of coals. He knew that the day was done when the egg top exploded. That got me to thinking.
Recalling an earlier presentation a bushcrafter placed a cup of water next to his solo and while it never achieved a rolling boil it did in fact yet warm enough to make a cup of tea. This got me to thinking about hanging a Contraption off the side of my solo and placing the egg in the contraption hoping that radiation from the top third of the solo would then be able to cook the egg thoroughly.
Finding the wire into two Loops for the top and bottom of the egg took no time at all period starting the fire was also pretty painless. 30 minutes into the heating cycle it appeared that the egg yolk and egg white had turned opaque. In fact after 30 minutes of cooking the egg was just under a soft boil. I cannot imagine waiting 30 to 45 minutes 2 make an egg NFL at the same time cooking something else. There are simply no tasks that would take that long.
Billy Improvement I can make to my system would be to include a better radiator so that I can pull more heat on the outside of the solo and directed at the egg itself. The method of putting the egg in the Kohl's works except that the egg Heats unevenly by eating from the bottom of the egg the insides reachable and rejected out of the hole on the top.
