'10 Out of 10': Phoenix Man Leaves Rice-A-Roni in Baking Hot Car

A Phoenix native who likes to experiment with the culinary potential of Arizona’s summer temperatures cooked some Rice-A-Roni by leaving it in his car on a searingly hot day.

Joe Brown, who has also baked a cake in his car this summer, placed the Rice-A-Roni in a rapid rice cooker dish.

Going back to the car a “couple” of hours later to find the cooked rice, he then added butter and some seasoning before chowing down.

“Ten out of ten, would recommend,” Brown says during the video of his culinary innovation. Credit: Joe Brown via Storyful

JOE BROWN: Today, we're going to see if it's hot enough to make rice inside of my car in the Arizona heat. And all we need is this rapid rice cooker, rice, and water. This is what it looks like I'm going to leave it inside of my car. And it's super hot. It is currently over 208 degrees in my car. Come back later to see the results.

Earlier today I left rice inside of my car and just a couple of hours later, my car was smelling good. And this is what the rice was looking like. And I threw the butter in first try. Psych, that wasn't my first try. But anyways, this is what it's looking like. And I had to mix it all together. And this is what it was looking like. I'm going to go ahead and try a bite. And this rice was a definite 10 out of 10. Would recommend.
