Conan O'Brien Pumps and Strokes His Meat With Myron Mixon: Video

Just in time for Independence Day grilling, Myron Mixon, author of The New York Times bestseller Smokin', demonstrates some Barbeque techniques to Team Coco.

Of course, this degenerates quickly from a serious cooking lesson to hilarity. First, Mixon asks Conan help him make Sausage stuffed bacon wrapped turkey. Here's a hand hint from Mixon - put your sausage in the freezer before you poke it!

As Conan proceeds to rub his meat (get your brains out of the gutter - we're talking seasoning his food with paprika and garlic), Mixon grabs his Boston Butt and shows Conan how to "pump it and stroke it. See the meat swelling?"

Hilarious - and delicious. The end result is so good, in fact, that Conan says, I'm having a heart attack right now!" Watch after the jump:
