Can you cook a chicken only with the heat generated by slapping it? – yes that your curious question can be answered by this video of Louis Weiz a Youtuber who showed how a chicken can be beaten.

As we know, the Internet is full of questions, many of them unanswered, but thanks to curious YouTubers, and perhaps something ‘unoccupied’, from time to time we can answer some of them.

This controversial Youtuber Louis Weiz had to invest a lot of time and effort. It took a total of two months of work and several unsuccessful attempts to achieve their goal, which required building a specially designed device to quickly and constantly slap a chicken wrapped in a thermal bag until it raised its temperature to the doneness point.

The physics of the kitchen behind the idea is really solid, it was reported that in 2019 Reddit post may have been the inspiration for the video, as it originally raised the question of whether kinetic energy (motion) converted to thermal energy (heat) could cook a chicken.

Using the dvice from Modernist Cuisine, Weisz found that holding the chicken at 55-60 degrees Celsius (131-140 degrees Fahrenheit), for at least an hour, would be enough to cook it, or at least kill enough bacteria to avoid salmonella, as you would cook it at a higher temperature for a shorter period.

As you can see in the video, Weiz had to overcome several problems, especially from the mechanical aspect of his project, since the machine he built to administer the slaps underwent several modifications in the process. The first of these was to prevent the chicken from being crushed and totally destroyed by the force of the slaps, and the others so that the mechanical arm could withstand the heat that its own slaps generated.

Now we have learnt that it is possible to cook a chicken (or meat) by slapping it -thanks to the kinetic energy converted into thermal- but it is very time-consuming, complex, and uses a lot of electricity, so it is not at all pleased with the environment. So, at least for now, it will be better to continue cooking our chicken in the oven, grill or pan.

On the way to cooked chicken, Weisz also put a steak to roast with his slapping machine, managing to bring it up to 60 degrees Celsius, a temperature where the meat would be on average. Excited to achieve his goal, he tasted his steak and concluded: “it’s a pretty bad steak in texture, but it’s cooked.”

After several unsuccessful attempts with the chicken Weisz he finally hit the jackpot. In the final calculations, it takes a minimum of 135,000 slaps in up to 8 hours to cook a chicken, consuming around 7,500 Watt Hours of energy, two to three times more than what your oven would need for the same job.
Among those who opined on that original question was a physics student who suggested that a slap would do it, if that slap had a speed of 1,666 meters per second or 3,726 miles per hour.

It is possible then, but not exactly feasible, and other solutions reached the same conclusion. It was only with a lot of mechanical assistance and a specially configured platform that Louis Weisz was able to cook his chicken.


Using the advice from Modernist Cuisine, Weisz found that holding the chicken at 55-60 degrees Celsius (131-140 degrees Fahrenheit), for at least an hour, would be enough to cook it, or at least kill enough bacteria to avoid salmonella, as you would cook it at a higher temperature for a shorter period.
