Will It Gravy? Taste Test

– Today we ask the age-old question – Will it gravy? – Let's talk about that

(alarm rings) (playful theme music) (fire blasts) Good Mythical Morning – In the spirit of Thanksgiving, we just wanna thank you for making us a part of your daily routine – Thank you – Thanksgiving, it's a time for gathering together with loved ones and reflecting on all the blessings in our life, as well as drowning massive dinner plates in a goo made from the drippings of meat flesh – Yes, and people have been consuming gravy since ancient times and the term itself is traced back to a 1390 French cooking book

– Hm – Yeah, I know things – Otherwise known as a cook book? – Yeah, I call them a– – [Both] Cooking book – Today we will do our best to ruin that legacy by pushing gravy to its outer most limits It's time for Will It Gravy? – We've got a whole Thanksgiving spread here in front of us because gravy's not gravy if it ain't smothered in something

Which is the way that I love my children – Okay Now there are a lot of different variations on gravy but for our purposes today we're defining the basic gravy recipe as flour plus butter plus juice/drippings, and that's where our variations are gonna come from, based on what the different juices and drippings are that we're gonna be working with for culinary experimentation! – When you say juice and drippings, boy that makes me hungry (both chuckle) All right let's get started You do not have to convince us to make anything pizza-themed and all of a sudden, gravy feels like an obvious choice

We call this gravizza – [Rhett] Oh, hmm I see it and it's got pepperonis on top – We basically took an entire greasy pepperoni pizza and metaphorically squeezed its goo out and turned it into gravy, or more specifically, if you're interested, we ground up pepperonis, grinded the pepperoni fat for base, added flour, milk, mozzarella, Parmesan, garlic, and tomato paste, I'm giving up on that Whipped it into a thick and pasty and tasty and peppy pizza gravy

– I want to pour yours and I'll pour mine – I want you to pour mine – I want you to pour yours and I'll pour mine – All right I'm going on the turkey turkey turkey and I'm gonna prove you wrong Look at how good I am at pouring gravy

– [Rhett] Well, you know what – Let me pour yours I don't wanna pour yours I'm exhausted – Right here on the turkey, I like that idea

– I'm gonna cut a little piece of turkey that's got like a little bit of that skin on it – Smells like pizza – How could this not be the answer to all of the world's problems? Dink it, sink it It is so pizza-y – Mm

– Great job, Josh This is some good stuff, man – Yeah Yeah, that's nice – Wow, very pepperoni forward, which is not a problem

– You can get pizza nowadays that's got Thanksgiving stuff on top of it, and this is the opposite This is putting pizza on top of the Thanksgiving stuff You're welcome, world – You said it, Rhett And you know what, I totally agree, man

(chuckles) – [Rhett] Pizza, will it gravy? – [Both] Yes – Now we've all had a tough day and come home to absolutely pound a sleeve of Oreos And sometimes I will fill a beer stein full of 'em, pour milk on it, and whatever happens happens So why not take this sweet to its goopiest, most bingeable form We call this grookies and gream

– Yes – It's Oreo gravy, specifically, Josh created a roux by mixing Oreo cookie wafer dust with butter in a sauce pot, then whisked it in milk and the insides of 68 Double Stuf Oreos Voila! – Oh wow – Oreo goo! – It's warm, begging to be poured You do the honors first

Now what are you gonna put yours on? – I was thinking about pouring it on the sweet potatoes because they have marshmallows on them already – Oh marshmallow topping – And that seemed like a good combo – Oh yeah You know what, keep the fun going on my biscuit

– All right – Gravy my biscuit Yes Yes Ooh, it's a little warmer than I anticipated on the palm of my hand

Ooh – Well, you asked for it (chuckles) How could this not be good, right? – It smells great Oreo gravy Call us, Nabisco

(chuckles) Call us – I guess we're– – Dink it Mm Mm Oh man

– I mean it kinda just tastes like– – Chocolate biscuit – Icing – But the funny thing is is it has a gravy quality to it – I don't think it tastes like icing It tastes more like pudding

– Yeah but the warmness of it – Warm pudding – There's a slight gelatinous quality too These are all great things Usually when you say warm and gelatinous, you don't think mm

– [Link] It's very clingy to anything it touches Mm – You sell this right next to Oreo – Right – Or Oreos

– Right – Multiple ones – 'Cause even if it's just warm pudding, if you call it Oreo gravy, it's gonna fly off the shelves Right into people's mouths – Then we could have a version where we put Oreo gravy inside of Oreos

Now with Oreo gravy (Link chuckles) What's that, Mom? You'll buy it either way Oreo, will it gravy? – [Both] Yes! – Rose all day, baby That trendy millennial pink wine is the social lubricant for all awkward bachelorette parties and Instagram-worthy brunches – Yeah

– But we're asking is that taste as versatile as the strong independent women who we unfairly call basic? – Oh – Let's see with the rosavy Look at that Now this looks the most gravy-like thus far with just a little hint of pink – I was gonna say it has a slight unsettling quality about it, it looks like something that would come out of a boil

– Oh gosh, Rhett (Rhett laughs) – You know what I'm saying? Like it's a little too pink, a little too biological – Smell it Smells like rose – Ooh it smells like gravy with wine

– Yeah now where should we put this? You start deciding, I'll tell you how we made this – I'm the decider – We reduced two whole bottles of Cupcake Rose to triple the concentration, then we whisk it into a mixture of rendered turkey fat and flour, seasoned with just a pinch of white pepper and onion powder – I went on the stuffing, or dressing is what we call it in North Carolina – I gotta get rid of this chocolate

– 'Cause it never was stuffed It was just dressed – Okay I'll do that too I like adding a little pink hue to my dressing

– But seriously, couldn't you see that coming out of a boil? – Stop talking about boils, okay? It's kinda nasty – A crawfish boil (chuckles) – This can really work except for that biological bit that you've been on Dink it, sink it First of all, it's very strong tasting

– Josh, what are you doing for Thanksgiving? – [Josh] Just gonna stay here What are you guys doing? – We don't know yet, man We'll let you know – I was about to invite him if he's gonna bring this – It ain't that good (chuckles)

– We're not having Thanksgiving together, so – He can invite you – You can come to my house – I invite you to Rhett's house for Thanksgiving – [Josh] Thank you, I'm excited

– I don't know I like it, it feels a little bit wrong You know what I'm saying? – You know what, it grows on you – And that's what Thanksgiving needs is it needs a little bit of wrongness – It's growing on me like Josh coming over for Thanksgiving Come over to my house for Thanksgiving

– 'Cause you're sitting there with your family and you're getting along with them, you're not having any conversations about political things and no one's getting in any arguments at all Everyone's getting along like a fairytale, so then you wanna spice it up a little bit so you put some alcohol into the gravy and see how Uncle Doug reacts – It's a really good gimmick if nothing else And I think for that reason alone, rose, will it gravy? – Yes – Yes! – In LA there's a popular new agey superfoods store called Moon Juice which as you can imagine is a favorite of Gwyneth Paltrow's

And at said place they sell an item called Sex Dust which is described by their website as an adaptogenic blend of lusty superherbs and Shatavari to combat the effects of stress, to ignite your creative energy, in and out of the bedroom We've made a gravy out of this lusty superherb dust and we call it 50 shades of gravy (both chuckle) – [Link] And it kinda just looks like the exact shade of gravy – Whoa, it's got a strong smell to it You know what, I was thinking I don't wanna put this on any of my traditional Thanksgiving items

I'm just gonna use my edible underwear – Oh, you're sure you don't wanna just eat it off of mine? – (chuckles) Oh gosh You gotta warn somebody when you're gonna stand up – Dip it, I'm gonna dip it in the boat – Uh

If you could remove those, that would be– – Oh I should have removed them a little more slinkily I guess – Okay – Okay now that I've rubbed these on the bottom of my shoes – Just find a, this is the part that goes in the butt crack so I'm just gonna – The butt crack

Look at that – Can't take 'em back now (both laugh) Oh gosh! Man, right on my frickin'– – Oh gosh – I got Sex Dust on my pants! – Dink it And bite it, I don't know how we do this

– Oh, oh, that gravy is hor– (candy clatters) (crew laughing) – Oh it tastes horrible! – What is wrong with that stuff? What are you supposed to put it on? – [Josh] Just mix it with water and drink it – It says you can add it to coffee– – You sure it's not a lotion? – Milk, water, or smoothies Oh my gosh! – That is absolutely horrible – Oh, but I am aroused No way! – Man, I gotta go brush my teeth before moving on with any other festivities after putting that in my mouth

– No you don't, 'cause it's only getting worse Moon Juice Sex Dust, will it gravy? No Now we're about to learn something about hagfish – Yum – They are a primordial half eel half fish that have existed for longer than we can even process and they look like this– – Yum! – And one of their main defensive techniques is that when attacked, they excrete an astonishing amount of thick glue-like slime that chokes and kills their attacker

Rhett, you've got some of it right there and it's not toxic, you just don't wanna touch it with your hand – [Rhett] That's the slime – Its mysteries are currently being studied by biologists and Rhett and today, we're gonna eat it (Rhett sighs) We've transformed into what we call gray-vomit – It smells so bad

Man I wish you had smell-o-vision – Okay this stuff is sometimes used in Korean cuisine but true story, one time a truck full of hagfish fell over on an Oregon highway and the slime disintegrated a Toyota Prius (Rhett chuckles) There it is! – [Rhett] Well let's eat some! How about that? – And according to Josh's notes, he took a locally caught hagfish named Haggie Gyllenhaal– (crew chuckles) And boiled it into a slimy hagfish stock, whisked it with just a touch of corn starch and he invited us to add dollops of the slime on top So get to pouring Wow

It looks like a poxy – See, you don't even know it's there – It's gonna glue our innards – I think it's gonna make everything slide right out – Oh gosh

– Okay but– – Add the slime – As instructed, we each get our own dollop of straight slime (Link coughs) (Rhett groans) – I'm seeing stars When I think I'm gonna faint – Oh I gave myself the big, dark slime

– [Link] Dollop! – Oh gosh! – Oh gosh – There are times when I already know the answer to will it gravy – [Link] That piece is uncutable, I mean– – Maybe we just swallow it real fast – I'm gonna put this in my mouth and I'm gonna slam it down I'm gonna slam it down like those Oreo sleeves

– That's a recipe for a giant projectile vomit onto the desk, but you know what, that's exactly why you should do it (laughs) – I'm gonna practice (gulps and exhales) Just like that, I'm just gonna kill it and I'm gonna love it It might even be good – Yeah yeah I think it probably will be good

(chuckles sadly) I wanna believe that it'll be good – It's gonna be dink it, sink it, slam it, okay? – Dink it, sink it, slam it – Just slide right down, slide it Dink it, sink it, slide it – I can do this

– Dink it! Sink it! Slide it! (Rhett retches) (crew laughing) – [Crew Member] Oh my– (Link retches) Yes! – Oh gosh! (Link retches) (crew clapping) How did you do that? Is that mine? – [Link] My bread! – Hold on, I did that unconsciously I thought I swallowed it (laughs) That's from me? In my heart, I swallowed it But it's there! – Uh– – How did you do that? – Take the pictures off the screen Let's not talk about it

– You did it, man! – It slid right down, man – How did you, I don't understand – It stayed in my mouth for a second and I was like gloomp – I tried to swallow but it went out – And then every time I breathe out, it's like, a nightmare of taste

– You gotta be the one to make the call (blowing nose) Hagfish slime– – (coughs) Gosh I smelled that when I blew my nose – Will it– – I tasted it – [Rhett] Will it gravy? – [Link] No! (Rhett laughs) – May all your days be slathered in grookies and gream gravy
