Hello All!

     When I was a kid, in my bed room, I loaded the output of a DX-100 into  two forks stuck into the ends of a hot dog.

     The TX cooked it to perfection in a short amount of time! You had to keep your hands on the plate and load as things changed rapidly as it cooked.

     Now in my "older years," could I cook a polish kielbasa, or maybe evan a boneless pork loin with my Globek King 500A loaded into it? I would brown the pork loin first.

     Yes, I realize that 4-400's "don't grow on trees."

     My question is is this still possible?

     How many minutes per pound on the porkloin with the Globe King?

Tnx,

Hello All!

     Yes, I think that I used 11 meters for cooking the hot dog. What band would you use for the boneless pork loin. I will post pix.

Tnx,

Tnx,

11 meters is not appropriate for hot dogs.  For ham and pork, stick to 75, 40, or 20 meters.   Stay far away from 26 - 27 MHz.  That band is only for chicken.  An old-buzzard transmission is appropriate for a thick pork roast, but for thinly sliced cutlets, it is best to use VOX.

It's HAM ain't it? If you are on the east coast, try 3892; say around 8-11 PM EST. Be sure to do a lengthy retune and on air tests there as well to insure the tx is still working 100% after the meal is prepared. Do not worry about warming up the rx at this time.

    All kidding aside, 115v (+/_) 50/60 cycle ac does a good job on hot
    dogs...

    I have an old cooker that will do a half doz. in one batch, must be
    at least 50 years old..

    When I was in Europe I used an old line cord salvaged from something
    with a couple insulated gater clips attached to a couple SS forks, one
    in each end of whatever "sausage of the day" that was to be served...

    Worked fine and gave off a glow on each end of subject being cooked.

    PS:  Must use Stainless Forks otherwise you might get undesirable
           electroplating on the item and their easy to clean... Grin Grin Grin

Tnx,

My wife made a pork loin for dinner this evening.

She wanted to use my xmtr, much the same way you describe, to cook it.

I insisted that she use the oven.

Good thing I was home today.  I would have hated to get grease on my HB creation.

The pickle worked well with a variac and 220V and I kept the current at about 3-4A. I used a Vlasic and demonstrated it in front of an audience as a warmup to the warmup at a computer security conference in the 1990's.
