Do you remember ever hanging out with your buds, either stoned or kinda drunk, and getting into a conversation that went sorta like:
"Dude, wouldn't it be cool if we built a.....so we could...?"
"Man, we could totally do that. It would be awesome!"
"Yeah, man. I can sooo see it now. C'mon, bro. Let's do it today. Let's do it right now. We could have this bad boy working in no time."
"Alright, man. Yeah, let's do it. Let me just take one more hit..."
You remember that, right? Of course you do! Well, somebody decided to take that basic idea and make a TV show out of it. It's called Food Jammers. Three Canadian dudes who have some building skills and a "WTF? Let's do it!" attitude build these wild contraptions in each episode to cook up some kind of food or make some cool drinks. While these guys are more beer drinkers than stoners (this is television after all), Food Jammers really is the ultimate stoner cooking show. The series has been airing in Canada for three seasons, and this year's season 3 started airing in the U.S. on the Food Network's new Cooking Channel.
Here's a video clip from a couple of years ago where the three hosts modify their freezer so they can keep an eye on their chilling beers. This might have even been shot before they had a proper TV show.
I watched the last episode of season 3 a couple of weeks ago, and the guys built a hot tub during Canada's winter so that they could relax outside and cook Japanese Shabu-Shabu and drink sake while being in the jacuzzi. It was pretty freaking awesome.
So check out Food Jammers on the Cooking Channel. Here's a link to their show page on the Cooking Channel site. The show might be a sausage farm without the babe action of our BITE ME! the MAN Cooking Show, and some of their contraptions may not be very practical, but the show is a lot of fun to watch while chilling in front of the tube with a beer in your hand.
