How Many Slaps does it Take to Cook a Chicken?

How many slaps does it take to cook a chicken? I built a chicken slapper robot to find out. Man has pondered this question for ages, or at least for the past couple years. Ever since someone asked this question on reddit, numerous youtube channels have sought the answer, including the likes of Unus Annus, MrBro, and the OG chicken slapper Jake Sing. After two years without a satisfying answer, I decided to finish this thing once and for all. Enjoy.

  • Use a tractor seat as a formed chicken slapping seat and tie it to the seat using strong webbing of some kind with the chicken wrapped in a bag made from space blanket/similar: you can get space blankets designed to be kept in the car that are pretty robust, it would also contain the meat pieces though you should probably do this with beef for lower health risks and better heat distribution; there's also foiled fabric for lining ironing boards that might be useful. And use Celsius. I thought about using maybe a bean bag or cushion, I've used a beanbag in the past as like a modern haybox. But I don't think that would work. Polybeads everywhere. The right foiled/fabric enclosure with strong enough webbing to hold it together would do more. Wrapped in a teatowel might not be very visual but it could work.
