Cooking A Turkey In A Trash Can

Cooking A Turkey In A Trash Can

– Can you cook a turkey in a trash can?
– Let’s talk about that. ♪ (theme music) ♪ – Good Mythical Morning!
– It is two days to Turkey Day… – Woo!
– …which means you got to get your – turkey game in gear.
– Oh! If you don’t celebrate Thanksgiving
this week, well, that’s something to… – …be thankful for. (laughing)
– (laughing) That you don’t have to… – …be thankful.
– Yeah, I mean… The point is… – …you should always be thankful.
– Being thankful can be cumbersome. And you should always eat turkey when
you can. And that’s a pun, given what we’re gonna do today. You can cook
a turkey the way you always do… – Right.
– …in the good ol’ oven. But you can also mix it up!
– And why not get prepared… …for the apocalypse at the same time.
Because listen, people. This is gonna happen. The world is gonna end, and
there’s gonna be a few people left, along with some cockroaches, and
those people are gonna wanna be thankful. And I have every reason to
believe that these two guys are gonna be two of those people left during
the apocalypse. And maybe you will be, too. And we’re gonna help prepare
you for that by showing you how to cook – a turkey in a trash can.
– (laughing) Here’s what you’re gonna need
to get started. – ♪ (electric guitar) ♪
– (Rhett) A wooden post. (Link) A couple of rolls of
aluminum foil. – (Rhett) A couple bags of charcoal.
– (Link) A shovel. (Rhett) A pair of heavy gloves.
A metal trash can. (Link) And probably a turkey.
Okay, put all those things together, – and, uh, it’ll work. Right?
– (Rhett and crew offscreen laughing) Hopefully. All right. Let’s cook
this bad boy. Welcome to our apocalyptic parking
lot. Step one is to find a patch of – dirt, which… Well, we created it…
– Here’s one! …here in the parking lot. Let’s get
down on it, Rhett. But in the apocalypse, most of the land
will be patches of dirt. – That’s true.
– So it’s gonna be really easy. – Now, are we in the apocalypse, or are
we poca… post-apocalytic. – “Are we poca-pocalypse?”
– Are we post-apocalyptic? – Post. We made it through.
– Okay. – Me and you live.
– Yeah! – There’s a few other people out there.
– And a lot of dirt. – And some turkeys.
– And what we gotta do is… get a stake here to drive down into
the dirt and then stake the turkey on it. That’s right. We won’t tell the secret
that we have a nail that we’re gonna put into a hole at the bottom of
our stake. – Yeah, we won’t tell that secret!
– (pounding) But you just find the nearest stake that
can find. if you have to remove it from a dead body, like the person that you just
stabbed through the heart… – (clicks tongue)
– …you know, who cares? As long as it can put a turkey on it.
Okay, the next thing you’ll wanna do is loot the local grocery store for some
aluminum foil. – (foil rustling)
– Or you could just steal if from someone who’s collected it.
Those are your options. – (foil rustling)
– How we gonna start this fire? Okay, so the first thing you’re gonna
do is you’re gonna cover the stake. – ♪ (electric guitar) ♪
– (foil rustling) – I didn’t go far enough.
– Well, you wanna cover the whole… – …ground around the stake.
– Okay, sorry about that. – Like this right here.
– Oh, don’t get dirt on top of it! That’s radioactive dirt, man.
Think about it. And then you gotta… (hitting foil)
Go like that. – That’s real nice.
– (foil rustling) Now you’re gonna wanna cover the
stake like this. – Go around that way. Yeah.
– Gonna wrap it. Of course that’s the way to do it.
Fold it over like that. – (Link) Fold that over.
– (Rhett) Create a little cap. Hey, we’re gonna do
good in the apocalypse. – “We’re gonna do good.”
– If how we’re doing so far is a sign… …it’s a good sign. Uh, so basically we’re creating a foil
bed, with which to put coals that then will bring the heat up so
the heat doesn’t go down into the dirt. The reason you wanna cover the stake is
because you don’t wanna transfer the diseases from the dead body that you
pulled the stake out of onto the turkey. – ‘Cause that guy coulda had anything!
– Anything will kill you in the apocalypse. – (foil rustling)
– And do you have the stones, Link? – (Link) Yeah. Throw a stone down there.
– Now, the stones that you don’t use… …to pick off little rabbits
and other fowl… – You can crush skulls with.
– Yeah. The ones that you don’t… …use as weapons in the apocalypse,
you can use to hold down the tin foil. All right. Now, you gotta be quiet
because you start to attract people who are like, “Are they building a
launching pad for a rocket? Or are they – about to cook a turkey?” You know?
– Yeah. “Either way, I want in on that.”
– I was reaching for the rocks over there. Step next. – Put on turkey.
– (Rhett) Yeah. (Link) Oh, yeah. Look at this! Now, this dead bird has been seasoned with
post-apocalytic spices, including but not limited to salt, pepper, some sort of
oregano-ish herb? We got some rosemary, which is prolific
in the apocalypse. All right, so here we go. I’m gonna…
Ooh, he’s… (high voice) He’s heavy! (Rhett) And you’ve gonna wanna stick
this right into the turkey’s… – …cavity.
– (Link and crew offscreen laughing) – All right, so…
(Rhett) Okay. All right, you just… – Put it right on there.
– (Link) All right, there we go. – Trying to fly away now.
– That’s not gonna happen. – This is where the head would be.
– I’m familiar with the anatomy… -…of a turkey.
– “Hey! You gonna baste me up or what?” (rubbing hands together) Okay. I’m glad I didn’t have to touch
that. See how that worked out so nice? – I just got to talk.
– Look at that. Look. Do it a little dance. I’m gonna put this
away, so… Ooh! And look, here’s a little…
You can give it a little shower of… – …of goodness.
– That’s optional. And I would’ve opted… …not to do it, but…
– All right. – I didn’t have the pan at that point.
– We’re gonna get rid of this. – (Rhett) Okay. Oh, look at this, Link!
– (empty metallic sounds) – Ho!
– We got a trash can! And all trash cans are this clean
in the apocalypse. Right. we highly recommend using an
unused trash can. – (trash can rumbling)
– I.e. a new one. (Rhett) Now, you’re just gonna wanna…
(trash can rumbling) just center it. (Rhett) And drop it. (Link) Or lower it. – (patting trash can)
– These are gonna be lying around… …everywhere in the apocalypse.
I mean, overturned trash cans… – They’re gonna be dirtier tan this.
– …upright trash cans… – …upside-down trash cans.
– But you might be able to find one of these at, like, a Home Depot that hasn’t
been used yet. All right. Step next: apply the heat
rocks, A.K.A. charcoal. (Rhett) Okay, you’re gonna wanna grab
some gloves. (Rhett) Again, pull those
off the dead guy. (Rhett) Um… Or you may already have a
pair. I don’t know. That dead guy sure had a lot of
stuff on him we needed. Oh, yeah. Well, you always kill the guy
with the gloves. That’s a sign that he’s got other things
that you need. – Here you go.
– ♪ (electric guitar) ♪ – (shovels scraping)
– (Link) Ooh! This is some hotness. – (Link) Ooh. Let’s put this on the top.
– (rocks clanking on the trash can) – (Rhett) Here, shovel some right into that.
– (Link) Here you go. (Rhett) Now, we’re choosing to work
together as a team and both do the… …charcoal, but typically one of us
would be defending camp. (Link) Eventually, that will happen.
Teamwork! – (Link) That’s good.
– Now, what we’ve been told by our… …apocalypse experts is that the turkey
will take about an hour to cook. A 12-pound turkey will take about an
hour to cook with this configuration, which is a lot quicker than it typically
would be in an oven. And you don’t have a lot of time in the
apocalypse, because the next thing you know, other one of your friends is dead.
Or they’ve turned on you. All right, so we’re gonna wait about an
hour. Let’s just chill out, and, uh… – …watch it.
– Phew! My face is baking! Oh, yeah. It’s hot, man. – Oh, yeah!
– (Rhett) Look what we did, Link. At this point, you can do any number
of things to kill the time. Just make sure you don’t kill each other. You know what? I got an idea. If he’s not back in an hour, I’m eating
the entire turkey and I’m not looking for him. – Oh, hi, Rhett. You’re back.
– (Rhett) Hey, Link. I would’ve looked for you if you didn’t
come back. – (Rhett) Oh, I’m sure you would.
– I promise. – (Rhett) You’re a friend.
– Where did you get the guitar? – You know that guy with the gloves?
– (Link laughing) – Dude had a guitar, too?
– (Rhett laughing) – It’s the gift that keeps on giving.
– (Link) That is a clean guitar… – He had a lot of stuff!
– …for the apocalypse. He had a pick, too. Right there in his
gloved hand. And I just took it out with my mouth.
(makes fake biting noise) – All right.
– My idea is that we could sing. – I understand. I understood that…
– ♪ (Rhett strums Gm) ♪ I understood you to mean that when
I saw you come back with a guitar. – ♪ (guitar picking) ♪

  1. im still waiting for the apocolypse(nawzubillah)
    i just love that song so much wow rhett and link has amazing skills

  2. Ever heard of galvanized or zinc poisoning? Galvanized metals and zinc give of poisonous/toxic gases when heated. I'd think that having an entire crew, producers and such that someone would've known better or at least done some research before making a video teaching, showing or advising people to cook with a method that basically be poisoning them. Is you're entire crew that clueless? I guess they are. Sadly, this is typical of today's clueless youth.

  3. You guys would never survive the apocalypse. Neither one of you knows how to use a can opener on a multi-purpose tool. LOL

  4. Agree Rhett I would not have dumped the Turkey blood and bacteria juices onto the turkey! Also the smell and guitar would attract others plus the odd song. So Optimistic love it. Rhett would have to be leader Link is a good side kick!!!!!

  5. You should have "cooked" the inside of the trash first to get all the galvanized coating off of it. I really hope you don't get sick for this or anyone else who ate this. Cuz this really does work and makes a nice turkey but I would about possibly poisoning your self or others if not do probably.

  6. anyone else grossed out cause Link didn't wash his hands after touching raw bird??? eewww, I bet he got sick after that.

  7. i was 1.5 years old and I don't today but I used to go though 50 sugar packets every month. No lie I would eat the entire thing, cardboard paper and all.

  8. It's 2019 and I finally watched this. Yes I am ashamed of myself especially since I've been watching every since the beatbox recorder days. After all that singing I forgot there was a turkey in the trash can 😂

  9. Link's industrial engineering degree is coming into play in this episode. IBM (his former employer) would be proud.
