VIDEO: In our favourite reaction to yesterday’s hotpocalypse, the Star’s Chris So cooks a roast in his sedan
While most cubicle dwellers burrowed themselves away in the cool confines of their A.C.-blasting offices during yesterday’s hotpocalypse, Toronto Star videographer Chris So decided to make dinner—in his sedan. In a video worthy of Bill Nye, So takes the viewer through his suburban kitchen and out to his front yard, balancing both camera and seasoned eye of round. Setting up his car-becue with three different types of thermometers, So places the roast on the dash and plays the waiting game. Four hours later, the rather raw, leather interior–infused roast is removed from the 190° F confines. And while the meat itself only reached 131° F, So goes one step further and digs in, concluding the experiment with an unconvincing, “Hmm. Yummy.” Success? We’re not so sure, but we’ve got to hand it to him for trying.
