Well, we've talked about this pretty extensively, but mostly, AFAIK,  
from within the dread, murky realm of "archaeological  
evidence" (which is usually a SCAdian euphemism for no  
documentation ;-)  ). However, seeing it being done, it occurs to me  
that the science involved is fairly simple: no matter what else  
happens, with a reasonable amount of care, there's no way the  
temperature of the hide is going above 212F (or so) until the liquid  
boils away.

At first I was pretty sure they were deep-frying Mars bars.
