Truck Driver

I'm a truck driver. I cook alot on the road. I use a Burton Stove to go to cook in, I also use a Snappy Port-a-Meal Sack, which leads me to my ???.
My Snappy Sack is a heat pad folded in half inside a bag and plugs into cigarette lighter on my dash.You can put a can of chili in it and about 2 to3 hours later it so hot it hard to hold the can. The I have is so used up am looking for another one.So my ??? is have any of you heard of this thing and if so where can I get another one? I've looked for it on-line and in truck stops but still have'nt found it. PLEASE HELP


I'm known in my world as "the habanero road chef". Have recipes Habanero cookies that some say "you truly DIE for". I fish sometimes while I'm the road and if I can't use my cookers I just put it in foil and clamp it to to my exhaust pipe as I drive and It's done in about 1 1/2 hours. I also a killer Habanero pasta sause.

Roger, welcome!! My hubby is a driver too and he has one little pot that works like an electric (plugged into the lighter, though) skillet and then he has something that looks about the size of a lunchbox that also plugs in. It uses aluminum foil loaf-pans and works more like a crock pot. I know that he got both at one truck-stop or another. I cook lots of stuff, freeze it in foil and send with him on the road. He just puts the whole foil covered food in the one and it is ready when he stops a few hours later. I can try to get more info from him if you want.

Roger, I showed your post and question to my hubby; he had not noticed anything like what you have. He did have me write down the particulars and is looking for any and all info he can find on it. May take a bit but we will find out what we can!!
