Unconventional cooking techniques

bonefreakchef | Aug 20, 201104:45 PM     22

Recently, I had a conversation with an acquaintance, and after the topic turned to food (as it almost always does), we started talking about food experiences in university (communal kitchens, hotplates, etc). But he seemed a little startled when I said that I used to make grilled cheese sandwiches wrapped in foil using my clothes iron. It actually made a pretty decent sandwich... and I didn't think it was all that odd.

Does anyone else have stories of "unconventional" techniques that work either very well, or failed spectacularly?
