How to Make Meth The Shake and Bake Way

The components of a traditional anydrous ammonia meth lab
This week's RFT feature story takes an in-depth look at a relatively new method of manufacturing methamphetamine known as "Shake and Bake" (cue the Talladega Nights/Ricky Bobby jokes) and the impact the process is having on burn units across the Midwest.

Shake and bake is significantly more combustible than other meth recipes but causes fewer deadly explosions. As a result, injured -- and almost always uninsured -- meth cooks are staggering into emergency rooms at an alarming rate. Doctors at St. John's Mercy Medical Center in Creve Couer, home of eastern Missouri's regional burn unit, say meth mishaps account for approximately 25 percent of their patients. Burn treatment costs about $6,000 per day and stays of up to six months are not uncommon.

We included a sidebar to the feature story that explains the two primary methods of making meth (anydrous ammonia and shake and bake) and their hazards but we also tapped Sgt. Jason Grellner of the Franklin County Narcotics Enforcement Unit, to explain them in detail on camera. Check it out:

Big deal. Breaking Bad was a hugely popular show about making meth and there's this little thing called the Internet where anyone can look that up. Rft posts interesting stuff and obviously it made you click.

This is almost as bad as when Jefferson County put out a billboard about how to spot a meth lab; they pretty much told the whole county how to make meth on a sign

Those who want to make it don't need the recipe. They make it very easily. But....not a smart move to put this story up on your page. There is a line, and I think in your effort to be controversial ...you crossed it.
