It’s so hot the Stomping Grounds is cooking outdoors.

The temperature read 104 degrees, the hottest on record for this date in Greer. Lisa Suber, owner of the popular Greer coffee shop used the occasion to try the theory “How hot does it have to be to fry an egg outside on asphalt?”

“I’ve always wanted to do this,” Lisa said. She and Wendy Syers, her friend from Hickory, N.C., attempted the egg test at 5 p.m.

Four eggs were used – two on asphalt at different locations in the sun, one on an aluminum pan placed on the asphalt and one cracked on the hood of Lisa’s car.

“When you cook an egg in a frying pan I believe you have to have it at least 200 degrees,” Wendy said.

“I’m not sure this is going to do it,” Lisa said.

The eggs didn't cook, there was a mess to clean up on the pavement and Lisa's car, which was just deailed, had to get a good hand scrubbing on the hood.

"I'm disappointed it didn't it didn't work," Lisa said.
