Because we love to take things over the top, not only did we make a bunch of food in the shop, but we did it in style with a 3-foot potato masher. When you have over 15 pounds of potatoes, a store-bought potato masher just won't do the trick, so we took some 3/8th stainless rod and went off! In case our food absolutely sucked, we called in our friends Luke and Zach from Blue Sparrow to whip up some fantastic sides. Watch our full video to see just how EPIC this Thanksgiving turns out — too bad you can’t taste it through the screen.
We decided to change our careers from builders to chefs — well, we’ll see if our food is edible first. This Thanksgiving dinner will be the ULTIMATE Thanksgiving feast as we build a 3-foot long potato masher. Why, you may ask? Well, how else are you going to mash 15 pounds of potatoes? Exactly. Before we got into the potatoes, we started with a 9-pound chicken that we seasoned with a sweet heat rub. We used a bacon lattice to add fat into the chicken breasts to make sure they are nice and juicy, and just because I like to play with my bacon.
Luke and Zach from Blue Sparrow were so gracious to help out us idiots with this project and whipped up some AMAZING sides for our dinner and didn’t skimp out on the taste. When I noticed Luke and Zach struggling to mash their potatoes with a standard small-sized masher, I knew it was time to take it up a notch. I showed these rookie builders how it’s done! Check it out by watching the entire video.
Of course, we’ve got the usual knives, spoons, tongs, kitchen shears, and a spatchcock, but the real winner is the 3-foot potato masher. We managed to pull together an insane Thanksgiving dinner, and we knew you’d want the recipe for our incredible macaroni and cheese! Check it out below.
Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Once rolling, add a heaping amount of salt to your water and cook your pasta 1-2 minutes less than the box recommends.
While water is boiling, cut up your bacon into small bites, and over medium heat, cook until slightly before crunchy. Remove from heat and drain over a paper towel, set aside for later.
