Watch this guy roast his Christmas turkey with a flamethrower drone

Cooking the Christmas turkey is a long and laborious process, but it doesn’t have to be.

An American teenager has developed a nippy way to cook the holiday roast.

Connecticut resident Austin Haughwout has built a real, working flamethrower drone, and filmed himself sizzling a turkey with it.

The 19-year-old posted the video to YouTube earlier this week, saying “this is how to roast your holiday turkey”.

Here’s the video:

If the name Haughwout rings a bell, that’s because the US teen has been behind drone-related headlines before.

Earlier this year, the enthusiast gained brief internet fame for developing a drone that could fire a handgun.

We’re not sure which quadcopter is deadlier, but we wouldn’t want to meet either in a dark alleyway.

According to WTNH, the local Clinton police department is aware of the matter, but has “no comment” just yet.

The original gun-shooting drone was actually investigated by the Federal Aviation Authority, but it was eventually ruled not to be illegal.
