To demonstrate how average household materials can be used to create reliable non-TNT-based explosives that could be used by the military, Travis issues a “blown up good” challenge. Travis draws inspiration from an experiment he did as a child, while Rog gets his idea from old western movies. Armed with toilet cleaner and welding gas, Team Travis and Team Rog face off, testing their best backwoods bomb creations on small outhouses.
