How to deal with a watermelon...
Alton Brown
Remove the metal roller from a wire cheese slicer*
Congratulations... you just made a multitasker!
Now, get a knife...
No, a really big knife.
Now cut the watermelon into 2 inch thick rounds.
Cut a notch in the rind of each round.
Slip in the iwre of the cheese cutter and rotate the round 360 degrees.
Remove the rind in one perfect piece.
Bask in the adoration of all you survey.

    I'm at a loss... So you peel the watermelon and then what? Just eat it like a Flintstone. Alton I'm very confused.

    Been a fan for years.. “There are no bad foods, only bad food habits.” And “I approach cooking from a science angle because I need to understand how things work.” If he approached his concept and approach to politics... and educated the masses... Alton 2020..

    What I would give to spend a week shadowing this guy is incalculable to what I would learn from this man! He thinks in such creative ways, I could only hope I would retain anything he taught me.

    That's ingenious , but way to civilized for this county boy. NO , NO , NO... You cut it length wise and then cut that half lengthwise so you have 4 long pieces. What we call a rattlesnake melon ( one like yours but longer ) works the best. Especially if you want some long quarter sections. Then you pick it up and start eating like you would do at a pie eating contest. If watermelon juice is not dripping off your chin you are doing it all wrong. How since you have that down correctly DO NOT forget the watermelon seed spitting contest , if you have friends with you enjoying the watermelon. It helps if it's a hot summer day and you are enjoying the melon while standing in the melon patch. Be sure to keep the rind for later when you clean it and make spiced watermelon pickles with it.

    Love it

  • ML

    Just like in the Jack in the Box Ultimate Cheeseburger commercial.. Without the rind, you'd get watermelon and juice all over your hands!

  • PawDieFur

    Wouldn't it be easier to you know just make a slicer station at the edge of the table? Heck ene a clamp could do it. You know, kinda how they do foam cutters? Same techniques just would be easier (and less cleanup) as well as you get more out of it. The cheese slicer dosnt give you the most you can get plus there is still alot of struggling that happens.
