Listen up, haters! On this edition of YouTube Today, we’re gonna get you all excited about one of the hottest YouTube sensations today, Epic Meal Time. It’s a YouTube cooking show with a Jackass twist–these guys always cook up the most ridiculous, calorie-powered meals you could ever think of, usually in extremely large portions.
Epic Meal Time began it’s course last October. A group of friends set out to create the most calorie-inducing, fattening dishes that they could think up. This isn’t cheap cooking that anyone could just do, like some other YouTube cooking shows. The ingredients behind all of this are legit, and well prepared. The show adds plenty of humor, alcohol, and of course, attractive women, to keep it fresh and keep viewers coming back.
Recently, Epic Meal Time became partners with online podcasting hub Revision3, and their newest episodes (which release every Tuesday) are available on YouTube, on EpicMealTime.com, and now, on iTunes as a podcast subscription. It’s rumored that the guys are even going to make it to cable television in the near future, with Comedy Central and Spike TV as the rumored networks of choice.
Warning: Many (all) of the recipes in the videos you’ll see below should really not be attempted by anyone who wishes to live a long life.
We’ll start this with something that actually sounds like it could be a lot of fun to make. The guys create a steak made out of cookie dough, candy burgers, and many of your other favorite barbecue meals out of nothing but candy. This is the only episode of the show that does not feature a single bacon strip or piece of real meat. Don’t get used to that though.
Grilled Cheese Tower
In this episode, the guys create a massive tower of deep fried grilled cheese goodness, with the help of musical artist Deadmau5. This thing is covered in bacon strips, cheese sauuuuce, and uses a variety of different cheeses. Grilled cheese has never been this epic.
Maximum Mac & Cheese
Here, the guys take to making extreme mac and cheese dishes made of practically everything that they’ve ever made before. There’s Four Loco Chili Mac and cheese, Mini Meat Log Mac and Cheese, Tequila Taco Mac and Cheese, Meat Lovers Mac and Cheese….and a giant, deep fried Mac and Cheese cake with a giant burger inside of it. It’s mac and cheese that only Epic Meal Time could create, and some of them probably should never be attempted by anyone.
Fast Food Lasagna
Here, the guys go to various fast food establishments (who are starting to recognize who they are by their extremely large fast food orders), and order 15 of their greatest burgers from each place. They even order a giant cup of that Big Mac sauuuuuce. They then create a massive lasagna out of all of it, with layers of Big Macs, Baconators, bacon, cheese, Teen Burgers from A&W, Big Mac sauuuuce, onion rings, more bacon, cheese….it’s a combination that is sure to clog your arteries for a long time to come.
Tequila Taco Night
In the final video we’re going to look at here, the guys take taco night to a whole new level–with plenty of guac…tequila guac, patron saaaaalsa, giant burritos, tacos with bacon shells…only something that Epic Meal Time could create.
There are so many other clips, and I wish I could sit here and post them all. Go to their website, check out their videos, and you’ll become an instant fan. This has become something that I look forward to seeing every Tuesday…and I can say the same for millions of other fans who have become addicted. Check it out. Now.
