Popcorn kernels pop at 450*F... EGTs get much higher than that. I'm not calling you a liar I just think you did it wrong.

I don't want to believe you

There's probably a necessary kernel:stack diameter ratio

Yes, you need enough kernels to contain the heat to reach 450*F, but not so many that the backpressure kills the engine.

The quotient may also differ between a cummins, powerstroke, or cummings

If you put popcorn in a cummings, it will be all sticky.

The kernels blew out as soon as he gave it a little throttle. Not enough time to get hot and the temp at the bottom of the stack isn't near the egt's.
