    @DocEggerton has done it successfully. I searched a while back with the same thought but have not gotten around to it yet. May just try JiffyPop.

    When I do popcorn over an open fire (which the coals would be) I put them in a big pot with lid on and shake the pot continuously to keep them from burning. Gloves or a good pair of socks if I'm camping keep the hands from crisping. Haven't ever tried it on the egg, but I imagine that method would work fine, but it seems a bit more intense than Doc's.

  • Williams Sonoma also has a Steel Grill 4 piece outdoor cookware set for $129. Looks like a pretty neat set. It includes the pan used for popcorn above.

    That was the Happy Hooker who hasn't posted for quite a while now. I wonder if she's OK. Her method and kettle korn in the wok is the way I have done it several times. Once I did it at my dealer's store on a Sunday afternoon as a novelty item when they were having a cabin fever sale after the football season was over.

  • I would think the pop secret bag would burn up :)

    Been egging since 1985 on a medium egg
  • I suggest using it for fuel. Just get a good flame going and through about 4 cups of corn on. Should burn pretty good.

    So- not the best image, but I did smore popcorn at the lame excuse for an eggfest here this past summer.  It was amazing!  I got one of those poppers where you turn the crank and it worked great-image

    BTW- egged popcorn goes well with grilled lemonade-
