I didn't know what the response would look like, but I knew it would be of good quality.

This fucker tried to do a steak by wrapping it in a leaf and burying it and it totally fucked up. I know this probably isn’t representative of the method as a whole but still.

Hangi man. You dig a whole, put a bunch of food in it wrapped in leaves and then build a fire over the top, bury it in ashes and hot sand with rocks, then like 5 hours or more later, you dig it up and everyone eats.

Its literally cooking in a hole in the ground. I think the polynesians do similar things, I have had it with tongans, papuans, and maori.

Yeah, except for some of them they just put hot ass rocks under the meat with coals under them and everything is wrapped in banana leaves or whatever regional leaf they use, barbacoa uses maguey leaves, and then they cover it with either more leaves burlap/cloth/what have you that's been wetted an covered with dry and finally dirt on top and let it sit for 3-8 hours. The concept is pretty common.

bad idea, dude. old copper cooking pots and pans can have loose copper floating around and getting into your food making you violently ill.

Thats cool, they still talking about using metal to cool while we over here cooking using a hole in the ground

Essentially that really is the idea. Different cultures put different things in there but you can stuff just about whatever you want down with the meats and let it roll. If I'm not mistaken traditional barbacoa is a whole goat cooked in this manner. Polynesian people cook pigs like this too, and I imagine many of these groups cook any amount of animal protein in this manner.

if you cook it in any type of acid it will dissolve the copper and make you violently sick. it can actually kill you. cooking with copper requires not being a stupid fuck.

>2-3 hours
>building an imu for 600g of steak barely enough to feed 1 person

This Aden guy should really get some maori or kanaka friend to help him. He knows fuck all.

That's not "caveman" steak. That's called kalua, and the ancient people who practiced kalua lived in houses, not caves. You need to dig deeper, use dry porous volcanic stones, use more vegetation, cook for at least 8 hours, and use MORE FOOD. If you want to cook 600g of steak, use a fucking spit. The whole reason kalua is a thing is because it's the most efficient way to cook food for tens of thousands of people. It's not for your pussy personal meals.

>tens of thousands of people
I think that's an overstatement. I imagine it works well for a large extended family though and you dig a few more pits for more people.

Ancient Hawaii didn't have tens of thousands of people in one place. Fuck even the Hawaii International Film Festival WeekEnd in the modern erea wouldn't have pulled that many.

They're lacquered by the seller to prevent the copper from corroding and the dogs from dying of copper overdose. Whatever they used is probably not safe when used with high heat applications (e.g. cooking).

Buy actual copper cookware. It's coated with tin so you won't die from copper overdose.

It's a bit of an overstatement but is a "feed a small village" kind of technique. Now the steamers the Mayans built could feed their whole city of thousands, but again the cooking in the ground technique isn't just of the Polynesian persuasion.

Underground ovens can feed tens of thousands. You have no idea.

Ok but one big one we had food for 120 people or so? Probably more with leftovers and whatever. Anyway, if you have the space and the food you can cook a lot of people food in one go with minimum supervision, so you can go to other things while the food cooks

Underground oven=/=cooking in a hole in the ground. Have you seen the size of the fire needed to heat the rocks? One big enough to feed 20-40 people is practically a fuckin bonfire. The amount of space needed and a hole big enough to pack enough caloric value to feed tens of thousands(even just 20k) would have to be so massive you'd need a ladder to get your food in and out of it. Otherwise it's just a bunch of small or regular size pits in the ground in which case you can scale anything to feed that many people, because I help to do 700+ heads Every. Fuckin. Day. at my job. For the record even for one meal(a large one) 20k people times 1k calories is twenty million calories or 5 tons of meat or more like 10-20 tons of meat on the bone. Also for the record the most consumed meat on earth is fucking goat, so that's a lotta goats or about 2 elephants.

Yeah, I actually went and fact checked myself before making that post. Looked at the biggest cities in ancient times to check I wasn't completely under estimating it.

We're talking cooking holes in the ground here, not ovens. As a different poster already said. You can dig a lot of holes and cook for thousands of people. If you can build a giant city and sustain the infrastructure and import the food then you can build an oven too.

Yes. I agree with you. Including imu.
