Video Transcription

this video is meant to accompany a series of videos posted by the outdoor community on YouTube this show us your steak challenge was brought on by Hayes outdoors an awesome outdoor youtuber it was meant to bring awareness to men's mental health more on that later [Music]


well this looks like a great spot a nice big open area surrounded by thick thick plush this is where I'm gonna post up for a few hours hook up supper with the dog music

it's no

okay now that I'm here we're gonna do a few things to get this place ready it's kind of windy so I want to set up a tarp just to stay over the wind and have my fire burn better so I think I'm gonna do that right now okay not too shabby got the wind coming from my back I'll build the fire right in front here just gonna have to dig up a lot of this Duff and get it away I might collect some rocks - we'll see but uh yeah I'm really hungry I'm getting uh getting to be time to eat working up a sweat here alrighty I haven't looked to see what the substrate is on the ground really underneath all this find off so it looks pretty wet pretty good let's start digging and see let's get it's pretty money it's actual mud perfect okay I don't have to worry about it at all I'm just gonna clear the top layer off and then that's good to go nice that's a relief but not for you nope that's not awkward at all scope so we got a big sheet of birch bark we're gonna use a big blade and also a big old fire steel this fire still was sent to me from Nick HF survival school on on YouTube she's a really cool guy he's from the country Georgia this is a really big fire steel and it works really well

either burger

oh yes oh-ho-ho-ho she's going a little colored too which is good nice an aged back up back up back up it's not for you homie no yeah you got to cook it how much better with this one look instead of the paper just pretend I didn't use the butcher paper pretend it was like that boom time okay [Applause]

oh she's smoking me right out but this is the good angle this is where it looks good I got some butter here we're gonna melt it slowly until go along with that slab of butter I have a clove of garlic this is a local clove so I want to just kind of take off pick up the stem take off all the flaky bits as much as possible I don't want to wrap it gonna wrap it in some tinfoil and then at the end I'll be able to mix it with the butter and have a nice garlic butter spread for the top of my steak okay I'm just gonna continue to take off these fluffy things you don't need to see that you know what that looks like all right fluffy things okay well I've got most this loose skin off I'm gonna press it after so it'll be totally fine he's this side of my blade to press it with all that garlic in there

perhaps Eames ups and we'll just place it next to the fire now I don't want to burn this butter at all I want a slow melt so that's not bad that height there I will put the lid on because I'd rather the least amount of lichen Moss action dirt in my butter as possible although it's not a deal breaker I swear wind is kicking up man switching around a bit like see the rounds on there now you need some good coals these big rounds will give me a decent coals for sure even though it's cedar wish to prop it all up on there now I did take the butter off I had it on there for a little while

ended up getting too hot I'll just wait till this is coals I'll put that down a little bit closer and do it that way but this is all my firewood here and this will be enough to make my cook my snake I have us oh I'll show you well I have a special guest today some of you if you've been following me for a long time well know what this is back in the bushcraft USA days there was a dude named donk his user name was Duncan his one-legged Josh's dad and he's a blacksmith and he would make these grills they were called donkey grills and I had one for a long time a lot of people got them because of my videos I'm sure a lot of people about them because the forum - not just my videos but I lost this on a trip with Kyle and Ken maybe like six years ago or something like that we went to puzzle lake we did a winter trip and I tonight and I thought that on the way out I dropped this out of my sled I could just never find it well I went back to that spot last year and I found it sitting against the tree I had no idea was even there I saw something sitting against the tree I'm like what the heck and this is like like seven hours away from my host and like four lakes paddled in and like just walking through the woods you know I mean I was trying to find the spot that we did camp at and I found it and I was like last year or early early this year so I've she looks a little rusty she looks a little rusty I hit it with an SOS pad and cleaned up all the top part so this is made of like old campaign signs from the states they folds up and yeah has legs you see a little bit of umph like height off the fire I like it I like it a lot and since I'm not far you know I hadn't didn't have to hike in here for hours to get to this spot it's a little bit heavier but I don't mind carrying it don't grow who remembers that let me know in the comments if you've been around that long if so kudos for sticking up with all of this for that long so haze outdoors good dude I've never met him I just chatted a couple times online with them and I just really enjoy the way his personality is the way he thinks about things and does things his videos are different than any other outdoor youtubers just because of his personality

you watch them I'm doing Scott your paws on my steak homie back back back he literally stuck his nail into my steak oh my gosh buddy that's going a little far anyways he took his platform and wanted to speak about something that meant something to him and he tagged me in it and he tagged ta outdoors and he tagged Carlyle 195 and both those guys already were able to do their videos and kudos to them too for doing it so quickly I was moving I was in the middle of moving and had a lot of things to do here so I couldn't so apologies to everyone involved especially Hayes we're not getting this done sooner this is as soon as I could do it so I personally have two people two men in my life used to have three two men in my life that suffer from mental illness a lot of the people are saying like you know it's okay to talk like if you have something wrong with you if you're feeling depressed won't do something or whatever it's okay to talk about it you know what I mean there's a stigma behind this male machismo I'm fine type thing in the head and that's I agree with that it is fine to talk about it and and that stigma doesn't need to be anymore but in the other hand also if you're not the person with the problem or the problem if you know someone who is dealing with mental illness or depression then just like they're allowed to talk about it and ask for help you are allowed to ask them if they're okay and make sure that everything's going well with them now I try to I try to practice this myself with the two men in my life that I know suffer from that and sometimes it's difficult sometimes you feel like you're intruding sometimes you just don't feel like asking either but whenever I have a policy whenever some somebody's in my head for a long time and I just keep thinking about that I tend to reach out and see how they're doing anyways I don't want to be too preachy about anything you know I mean God knows I'm not the authority on anything but this is a good cause and I think this this this month especially Movember is a good time to talk about it too so
