If there is no induction cooker, or a traditional fire to make your food, you could still cook your chicken with the power of incessant slaps. As bizarre as it may sound, one YouTuber has shown how chicken or even steak can be cooked if they are slapped continuously for a period of time until they reach a certain temperature. YouTuber Louis Weisz posted a video on March 14 where he shows how with some great engineering skills, a chicken can be cooked with the power of slaps. After multiple failed attempts, Louis explained that he was looking forward to creating a machine that would accomplish three things: faster slap rate, more impact control, and minimal heat loss. In the 13-minute video, Louis is seen trying different methods to cook the chicken and he finally does it.
He is seen devising a new machine after failing to cook the chicken at first. He talks about how he then designed a slap paddle that allows for an adjustable slap depth, which is an actual term, is what he looked for. In the new design, Louis uses a cutting board as the impact surface and aluminium angle bars for mounts and spring steel strips as the adjustable height legs that connect it to the arm. This new design allowed far more control over how they impact the chicken without compromising too much on weight flexibility.
To keep the heat loss minimal Louis takes the help of Joel Creates, another YouTuber who suggests he insert the chicken in ultra-thin aerogel insulation which would minimize heat loss from the chicken without highly dampening the force of the slapper’s impact.
With all the devices set, Louis inserted a thermometer inside the chicken to trace how its temperature increases as the slap rate increases. He mentions that he is aiming to reach 60-degree Celsius with the help of the slapping machine since at that temperature the chicken gets tender and cooked.
The video shows how he finally achieves this feat by slapping the chicken 135,000 times for over six to eight hours of slapping.
Louis’ bizarre yet incredible attempt and content received equally amusing responses from the YouTube community.
“I’m sorry, but I ordered this steak medium. Could you have the chef slap it around for another 5-10 minutes.”
“His first mistake was not adding seasoning. This are unacceptable results.”
“Scientists in the year 3000: what was this machine used for, what was its purpose.”
“spends months cooking meat with slaps through extraordinary feats of engineering
cuts steak with plastic knife.”
