Do you cook with Aloe leaves?

Lately I have noticed that my local grecery store has begun to carry Aloe leaves. Not the litttle petite one you grow in a pot on the window sill, but giant 3 footers! What to you cook that requires a 3 foot aloe leaf?

Do you think it could be used to wrap around something before it is baked/roasted/grilled?

Because some people are funny about textures, I should warn you that raw aloe is extremely slimy. Think okra x10. Cooking it reduces the slime factor considerably, but it does still have a viscous slippery feel to it.
