The grilling season is almost over, but are you ready to take your cookout to the next level!
BBQ on a Volcano
A commercial for Jupiler beer currently airing in Europe features two determined cooks grabbing a backpack full of beer and a few steaks as they drive towards an active volcano. After a long hike, they find a pool of molten lava and use it to grill their meat.
Believe it or not, it’s possible to do this in real life. Molten lava can reach temperatures of up to 1300° F, allowing two professors from the University of Syracuse recently built a “volcano grill. They have to wear heavy protective gear, but “The Lava Project” can be used to prepare several T-bones in under three minutes.
BBQ With a Flamethrower
The problem with grilling with lava is that the stuff is hard to come by if you don’t live near a volcano. If you’re unwilling to track one down, you may want to try frying up a couple of sirloins with a flamethrower.
This video features a group of guys using an M4 flamethrower to cook up ribs, popcorm and more. Needless to say, it’s very easy to burn your dinner (or yourself) with one of these things.
If these methods seem a little too bourgeois for your tastes, you could also prepare some sausage with a $400,000 Lamborghini. The manufacturer’s Aventador models are known to spit fireballs out of their tailpipes in certain situations. As this host for a online video series called SCDTV demonstrates, they can be used to roast meat. After sticking a sausage on a metal stick, he places it in front of an Aventador’s tailpipe. The car’s fireballs manage to cook the meat in under a few minutes.
