Aluminum foil sounds more sanitary.
I did this the other day on my XL600. We had made a bunch of carnitas wrapped in tortillas, so I put one (wrapped in foil) between my muffler and side plastics. I used a small spring clamp to hold the edge of the foil to the the plastic to keep it from falling out.

After about 45 minutes it was just luke warm, but I ate it anyway. I need to make something to attach food to the exhaust closer to the engine for more heat.

Here is one, but the shape looks a bit cumbersome:
