Watch This American Hero Convert a Filing Cabinet Into a Secret Meat Smoker
Man, Josh. Your cubicle smells AMAZING.
Filing cabinets: those things you use to store “important” papers you’re literally never going to look at ever again.
Kind of a waste, when you think about it.
Unless you’re Mississippi man Joshua McIntyre, in which case you convert your filing cabinet into an epic meat-smoking apparatus and then share it with the world via a Facebook video called, simply, “My File Cabinet Is On Fire.”
Prima facie, this looks like your run-of-the-mill manila folder filer. But open the top two drawers et voila: glistening trays of steaming chicken wings and ribs marinating in a bed of juice, stock and sticky red sauce.
By installing a water-filled steam pan above a simmering stack of coals in the bottom two drawers, McIntyre has essentially converted a piece of office furniture into the perfect backyard slow-cooker.
See for yourself below — just beware the NSFW language and immediate onset of hunger pangs. And if the video gets you feeling all DIY, we were able to track down some step-by-step instructions for making a Staples-themed smoker of your own.
