When it's hot, very hot, you might as well use that mailbox for some cooking.

I've always wondered if your mailbox could be used to cook up some delicious biscuits in the intense heat. I have a friend who lives in Fryeburg, Maine, THE hotspot (or cold spot) in the state. I asked if she wouldn't mind doing an experiment for me. I was surprised when she went for it. I picked Kelly because it was in the '90s in Fryeburg.

"How do I cook a biscuit in my mailbox?"

I have no idea, but I decided that the biscuit should go on some foil. Then place the foil on the side of the mailbox.

Uh oh. A problem right out of the gate.

Kelly did say that her mailbox was plastic, not metal. Hmm. That could present a problem with cooking, as a metal box would definitely heat up more. But we pressed on with the experiment. Kelly asked,

How long should I leave the biscuit in my mailbox? The mail usually gets delivered around 3.

Great question. I figured if a biscuit in a regular oven only takes about 10-15 minutes, a good two hours should do it. She left that sucker in there for almost three hours. And the results?

According to Kelly, the biscuit was "a little stiff, but certainly not cooked". Epic fail? Kelly wasn't done trying. So she placed the little stiff biscuit (a great nickname, by the way) on her stoop to see if a little direct sunlight might finish the job.

THE CONCLUSION: Fail

Kelly left the biscuit on her steps a little longer, and concluded that it was inedible.

But it was kinda fun. Hope you survived Maine's first heatwave in a long time!
