Cooking a Hot Dog with 4,000° Thermite

 |  |  |  |  |  August 1, 2016

There’s nothing more fascinating than watching stuff melt. That’s why the Let’s Melt This channel set a hot dog, ketchup, mustard, and relish in a glass dish full of thermite. Thermite can burn with temperatures over 4,000° Fahrenheit, so this stuff is no joke.

If you have ever wondered how a hot dog would cook with thermite, here is your answer. Look no further. Apparently July was national hot dog month, so they received a request to destroy a hot dog any way they could. Naturally, they obliged and thought that incineration at 5 times the temperature of the surface of Mercury would be a good way to do it.

I’m glad there’s no music in the video, since the sound of sizzling thermite is pretty cool. Enjoy.
