Real Men Cook with Liquid Oxygen… NOT!

This falls under “Geek Culture!” It kinda reminds me of Tim Allen on his “show within a show” which was “Tool Time”, and the real TV show was “Home Improvement”… Tim would do crazy things to “speed up,” add hosepower, or take shortcuts… well, these guys chose to use Liquid Oxygen to speen up cleaning and firing up a charcoal grill (DON’T TRY THIS AT HOME!)

LOX in a Grill Video

“Cooking with Liquid Oxygen… A short film clip of lighting of the grill with 3 gallons of liquid oxygen. Started with 60 lbs of charcoal, and burnt up 40 lbs of it in 3 seconds. Result is a grill ready to cook in about 3 seconds, and all the old grease, etc burned off. Don’t try this at home.

WARNING: An ignition source, such as a lit cigarette or one glowing coal, must be present before pouring on the LOX. If charcoal is PRESOAKED in LOX first, an explosion will result. One briquette presoaked in LOX is approx equiv to 1 stick of dynamite.”

Dewd. These guys are crazy!
