Adam is explaining he would hand out hobo kibble in place of cash to these desperate pan handlers, Adam is saying that 10min of pan handling will by you enough to live for a day at Taco Bell, Adam would add “salt peter” to the kibble much like the stuff done to prisoners and people in jail with Phenylketonurics in the drinks.
