Its damn hot out. In fact...

"Its so hot you could cook an egg on the sidewalk!" Yes, we've all heard this exageration, but is it really true? I set out today to see if it was or not.

Temperature: 95 degrees F

I approached this two ways:

1)Try to cook it on the blacktop
2)Try to cook it on an aluminum baking pan.

So, it crack an egg on the blacktop:



and on my pan:



Both eggs where placed directly under the sun light.

As you can see by this thermometer that I broke, the temperature of my pan was (or exceeded) 120 degrees F. I can only assume this was true for the blacktop as well:



==================

Time: 1:18 pm.

I check on my eggs, to discover bubbles in the clear, slimy part of both of my eggs...Possible cooking??:



The yolks where the same as when they were before.

==================

Time: 2:05 pm.

A firm, waxy coating has developed on the yolks of my eggs. They have maintained their bubbley slimy goo. Another stage of cooking??

I knew this was going to take a while, so I decided to wait a while a leave them be...

==================

Time: 3:35

I come out to check on my eggs and I discoverd this:



Turns out, the clear part had evaporated, leaving a solid, crystal-like substance behind. The yolk maintained its firm, waxy coating. This result was the same for both the pan egg and the blacktop egg.

==================

So, PBF:

Is it really hot enough to cook an egg on the sidewalk?? I dont think so...

===================

tl;dr - You cant cook an egg on the sidewalk, even though its hot as hell outside.
