Hey What’s up guys and welcome back to another random? Experiment with thermite now to give you a little context in this video a couple weeks ago Jimmy Fallon’s team reached out asking if I can come up with some new summer life hacks Now being a Youtube mad scientist the first thing that came to my mind was seeing if we could light off a grill with thermite And actually cook hot dogs and hamburgers Now unfortunately lighting off the thermite in the studio is one thing that Jimmy Fallon is not allowed to do so for this video I thought let’s put it to the test anyway and see if barbecuing hot dogs and hamburgers Or thermite is a viable option after all here’s the basic idea behind our experiment today We have two metallic powders iron to oxide and aluminum powder these are very very fine powders And when we mix them together in the right ratios we create a batch of homemade thermite the burning of thermite is an extremely? exothermic reaction releasing temperatures upwards of 5,000 degrees Fahrenheit So we’ll start the reaction by putting the mixture in a terracotta planter pot setting it on top of the grill and letting the Molten Iron flow down into a Terracotta base plate down below when the bottom plates are full of Molten thermite We’re going to remove the Terra cotta pot stick on some hot dogs hamburgers and using the residual heat of that metal we’re going to See if we can actually get them to grill All right, our bachelor might is mixed up for ready to go? So we’re just going to transfer it into this terracotta planter pot sit on top of the grill and let it off So we got a blowtorch a sparkler for our time delay. Let’s go ahead and light it up fastest way to let your barbecue ever There you go All right, here goes let’s see if it works Come check this out. This is amazing. So we got the terracotta pot on here which I’m going to promptly remove Looks like a little bit of our grill kind of gotten bolt in there and look at that bottom plate You can see how all the thermite stripped down to the bottom and now we’ve got a plate of glowing Lava as it were Just sitting down there at the edge. I can’t actually pull this grill off. Oh yeah there goes Look at that. That is unreal Now right now. I think this is way too hot to put our meat on I think this is actually burn the meat. So we’re just gonna let it cool down for a few seconds Did you see the way that that lid off and all that Molten metal flowed down to the bottom? That’s the reason I had this little terracotta base and even that It’s cracked into a bunch of pieces But it has managed to keep everything one place and not burn to the bottom of our width you look at the planter pot on The other hand this thing is so hot right now It’s actually scorching the sand that I was setting it on it’s broken into pieces and there’s all kinds of vitrification Happening on the inside the other thing I noticed is we actually burn the little hole through one of our grill racks here But that’s cool. I’m just going to go ahead and replace that now Stick that on top Yeah, look at that you see how that melted right through that’s where the thermite was dropping, and it just melted that clean off that Was a superhot reaction that was fantastic And it’s actually going to need a few minutes to cool down before we can put our meat on here So while it’s doing that take 10 seconds right now to drop down to the description and click the link for Blue apron?

Let’s take a look at the slow-mo replay So it looks like I caught the slow mode just as the reaction was really starting to take off and you can see it’s glowing as bright as the sun Which makes it very hard to see what’s happening here now the iron oxide is reacting with the aluminum to produce a lot of heat It’s putting off a lot of light energy the way you can’t see happening inside is all that Molten metal inside the pot is flowing down to the bottom hole cutting through the Grate and landing in that terracotta dish underneath. I have to say that’s probably the most dramatic way I’ve ever started to barbecue That looks absolutely fantastic What I can’t get over is how bright that reaction is it’s so incredibly bright that you can’t see anything else is taking place For the light that’s coming off of that kind of looks like peering into a volcano nothing, but glowing Molten is fantastic And probably the coolest way to cook food on set that looks amazing if I were to do that again I might use a second terracotta dish underneath, but it looks like it contained all that at the bottom Great all right go ahead and put on some hot dogs Listen to that sizzle So we have eight hot dogs on here We’ve got three hamburger patties And it’s already starting to smell amazing So I’m going to go ahead and put the lid back on let’s wait about 10 to 15 minutes and see if there might in Fact is able to cook our food All right, it’s been 20 minutes.
