Cold Blooded

July 7, 2010

I was thinking that it might work to cook a lizard in a blanket if you introduced a little bit of heat into the system, but now I realize that the lizard’s body temperature would remain static with that of the surrounding environment so it would never increase after that first bit of heat.  A mammal wouldn’t work either since it would try to maintain its own body temperature, so any time it got too warm inside the blanket the mammal would cool itself down to cool down the surrounding blanket.  You could give it more energy than the mammal was capable of cooling down, but that wouldn’t be any different than cooking it in a traditional fashion without a blanket.  All these setbacks defeat the goal of having a low-energy method for cooking a living animal.
