WATCH: Alton Brown Makes Thanksgiving In A Car Hood On Mythbusters

We (and by we, we specifically mean the author of this piece) are trying not to hyperventilate over Alton Brown’s upcoming appearance on Mythbusters, a pioneering television show in the science/explosions genre. For years, the Internet’s paired Alton in their dreams with hosts Adam Savage and Jamie Hyneman, and now with this very special Thanksgiving episode, they can finally check an item off their nerd bucket list.

One of the myths, previewed in the video below, sees the nerd team trying to cook an entire Thanksgiving dinner in the hood of a car: turkey, gravy, asparagus, and even dessert. Of course, this entire meal will be edible. They think.

While the Mythbusters approach the entire project with their typical bravado/stoicism, Alton’s hidden a turkey leg somewhere “in case everything else goes to hell in a handbasket,” he deadpans.

“This is an entire buffet of potential doom for me, but here we go.”

The episode airs at 8 PM EST this Sunday on the Discovery Channel.
