Pretty sure Alton Brown could come up with something more complicated.

While somewhat entertaining, this is an awful lot of trouble to go through for an 8 ounce steak. Just light off some charcoal in the Weber and get to work.

Has an astronaut ever tossed garbage towards the earth? I assume it would burn up unless it was light and the bag acted like a drogue chute

Came to do this. If we're gonna give sites traffic, give it to the real originator and not some site that literally lifted the page.

Look, the amount of energy required to place an 8 ounce filet in near earth orbit is staggering when compared to the use of 10 to 12 Kingsford Brand (tm) charcoal briquettes. Personally, I don't even need to burn the charcoal completely. After cooking a nice steak I can put the lid on my Weber One Touch (tm), close all of the vents, and the charcoal will self extinguish, ready to be used another time.

Now even though I consider the use of a propane grill to be properly limited to Communists, the feeble-minded, or womenfolk, even this method could be considered superior in energy efficiency, time-to-table, and size of carbon footprint generated when the logistics of space flight are the alternative. This argument does not EVEN bring in to play the difficulties involved in producing a nice medium rare steak when you are dropping the thing from 200 miles up or of attaining a proper sear.

Sense of spirit? Marinate your steak with a nice bourbon based infusion.

Hope they're paying their protection money.

depends if you're frying it or broiling it.
Since the Coleman stove falls at the same rate as the steak you'd only need to be about 7 minutes of freefall OR if using a parachute you could cook it from (and I'm guessing here) about 12,000 feet depending on wind and other particulars, sport chute or military that sort of thing-

My dog has bigger issues than math, like constipation.

Herniated discs are a biatch.

When I hurl a steak at the earth, I also jettison some soy, some worscestershire, a little lemon, and an entire bottle of Wild Turkey bourbon.

/not the marinade bag, that would just be silly

That read like something out of Douglas Adams or Monty Python. Would've been a good skit.

I almost envy you. My little retard pooped ten times in a square block area. I only had two bags. Then he tried to get out of his collar to go flirt with all the b*tches in the neighborhood. When we got home, he pissed on the kitchen floor and then hid under the bed.

Thank you. One of my goals is to one day write professionally while retaining my status as an amateur smartass.

BoingBoing only copied an excerpt, so it's probably covered by "fair use". Still, as people have said, it's nice to give the original creator traffic.. and BoingBoing didn't really add anything to it.
