Man goes viral cooking burgers and steaks in hot car in scorching heat

A man has gone viral for cooking food in his hot car using only heat from the sun.

Joe Brown from Arizona in the US said locals had a saying that ‘it’s hot enough to fry an egg on the sidewalk’ and he took the saying to test it and tried it In his car.

Temperatures in the southwestern US state recorded over 100 F (37.7 C) in the summer and Joe wanted to experiment if he could cook food in the “Arizona heat”.

In one of his now viral videos, viewed over 18 million times, the TikToker states, “I’m going to make burgers in my car and I have a feeling it’s going to be really good.

Joe seasons the beef patties and brioche buns with salt and pepper and places them on a baking sheet.

“I’m going to leave them in my car for a few hours where it’s currently over 186F (85C).”

He left them for two hours as the mercury soared to 203F (95C) and when he checked them again the patties appeared cooked and the buns appeared to be “toasted”.



To his surprise, the steak came out medium-rare two hours later.

“The patties were well done and that’s how I like my burger, so I know it’s going to be good,” Joe reveals.

“And the buns are very toasty. If you’re too lazy to cook on your stove, just cook it in your car. The burger was definitely 10 out of 10.”

Joe also tried cooking a steak by placing it on top of the dash and two hours later it was cooked to perfection.
