Just Like Our Ancestors Used To: Grilling Steaks With Lava

May 21, 2015


I don't think our ancestors actually cooked steaks with lava, by the way. I don't think they were grilling steaks at all. I always imagine them just standing really still and biting animals as they went by. This is a video from Syracuse University's Lava Project of a couple guys grilling steaks, salmon and hot dogs with man-made lava. It's pretty amazing these guys can make lava but can't seem to grill a steak anything but ultra well-done. If you told me you were going to char them all I would have just eaten mine raw. Speaking of -- raw hamburger meat is still one of my guilty pleasures. Plus it's the perfect meal for staying up all night because usually I'm rocking back and forth on the shitter for hours and hours afterward.

Keep going for the video.

    Cooking times are taking the piss but as a general display of awesome, awesome it is.

    The smoke seems a little too cancer-y for my taste

    don't worry... it'll be raw on the inside... ;)

    I'm vegetarian but I'd consider switching teams for this. That's awesome!

    You may want to rethink your comment. I'm not sure "switching teams" was a good choice.

    Maybe he just really likes dudes that cook steaks with lava.

    I got it, I'm so hip!

    I imagine all of the gasses in real lava would cause the steaks to be either really nasty tasting, or really toxic.
