Cooking with a BV?

#1
How do you know it’s cooked? :evil:

Big tin of Tomato Soup, left in too long.
1 x Bent Lid.
1L x Tomato Soup all over Turret.
3 x Extra stags to clean up the mess!
:(

It "dings" as the lid of the can goes convex. Thought everyone knew that. Mind you I did the same thing in the kitchen a few years back; thought I would save on the washing up by heating the can in a pan of water. Got engrossed in something on the 'Net....bang; kitchen reeked of tomato soup for ages. :roll:

The idea was to put a dent in the side of the tin and when the pressure pushed it out it should be cooked.
I just forgot it was still in there, it’s amazing how far tomato soup will travel in the turret of a Chieftain.
Shit happens it’s only the depth that varies!

Well well the things you learn on this site. You must have looked like you'd just been down on an ARRSE girl in the clutches of a heavy monthly flow.

I'm no expert but wht don't you get a small watch that goes Beep Beep after say 5 mins and then it'll tell you the soups cooked?

Heating food in the can should be avoided. The inside of the can has a thin film applied as part of the manufacturing process. This film is designed to stop the food from being tainted by prolonged exposure to the metal. If you heat the can, the lining delaminates and corrupts the food. Over time this can lead to serious health issues not all of which have so far been identified, but Alzheimers disease is top of the list.

Good point, and you wont have to worry about your pension either.

Every cloud has a silver lining (and every can has a potentially toxic one)

I was addicted to heating up the tins of fruit pudding in the BV - does that mean I will get Al................ sorry, what was I talking about?

Once tried warming some Cheese possessed once. Suddenly got the"MOVE NOW", forgot. (CVR Striker BV) Cheese blew, BV lid blew off, naplamed the whole sight, my right leg (two man crew at the time Thank Fcuk), Drivers neck, radios etc, Found the tin under the Dvr seat, opened up like a butterfly mine. Ouch, stunk like a itie for weeks.

Has anyone actually fried anything in the BV? Or indeed used that inner? In all the years I was in we never did, the thought of cleaning the muck off put me right off. In fact I think we left those inners in the troop store.

The tins of compo sausages contained fat, so heating the tin in the BV did in fact fry the sausages.

Many moons ago we had a BV converted into a grill on our 432 command waggon,

When I found out we had a new OC on the way I spent ages looking for the parts to get the thing back to standard.

What was one of the first things he said? 'oh, didn't you know you can make these into a decent grill for toast?, look I'll show you....'
