Barbecue Steam Engine Video Goes Viral

Steven Califf from Rockford, Illinois, is retired after a career of working on steam turbines in nuclear power plants. That clearly gave him the inspiration for this remarkable steam engine replica which doubles as a barbecue steam smoker.

Steven worked on the invention for three years and once it was ready, he presented it to the world in a video recorded by his wife, Janet.
