Shake and Bake or One Pot Meth Making

The newest way to make meth is called the Shake n’ Bake or One-pot method and poses a new danger to communities

New on the scene is the easiest and possibly most dangerous way of making meth. Using the one-pot method means that meth cooks can make meth in one sealed container which is generally flipped upside-down to cause the reaction needed to turn several toxic ingredients into meth. This method generally produces meth in smaller quantity, but doesn’t make it any less dangerous.

The chemical reaction going on inside the container (which can be anything from a Coleman fuel can to a soda bottle) causes an extremely high amount of pressure to build up within the container after being shaken; this method can cause a pretty large explosion. In fact, just the other day, a man died from making meth this way.

The biggest danger in relation to this method is the fact that it is fast and portable. So portable in fact, that it is most common to find people using this method to make meth in their car. They generally drive around while the meth is being made to release the fumes and when the process is over, some 40 minutes later, they simply chuck the used container filled with toxic chemical residue out of the window. Aside from the environmental impact this has, it also poses a hazard to children that naturally want to explore and pick up the things they find.

The remnants of the chemicals that remain in the container are generally muddy brown in color. If you suspect someone of making meth using this method please contact authorities as soon as possible. This type of meth lab is really a mobile ticking time bomb. If you come across a discarded container used in one-pot (shake and bake) meth making do not touch it – contact the police department to discard it, as they will likely need to have a haz-mat team clean up the mess left behind.

    You need some corrections of your own.


    “You have commas in all the wrong places, misspelled words, and countless mistakes.”

    “It should be written like this:”

    Although this is an older post I have to put in my 2 cents anyone who is stupid enough to try the hole shake and bake bs go right on ahead let’s all hope you kill your self and no one else . if you want to Cook some dope then great lol but know what ur doing and don’t use this stupid ass unstable way know your chemistry and do it right or wait don’t do it at all if you feel u need to get spun out its easier just to go buy your self some then it is to blow ur self up and get a bigger sentence when u get caught and trust me eventually you will get caught it may not be today or even this year but eventually you will think your untouchable and u will mess up and get caught I know from experience and thank god I got caught when I did or I’d probably be dead there that’s my 2 cents

    I’m from the old school where a meth cook had to be a smart, talented idiot. These days anyone can be a meth cook idiot. Either way, the end result is the same.
    At least you can look forward to teaching you kids to count playing find the tooth in your mouth.

  • PHD

    terrible grammer and spelling and certainly doesn’t know much about making meth…chicken scratch method is slang for “doesn’t work but I think it does ’cause Im a dumbass”
    …real “cook from the old Phenylacetone days who has never bothered to use meth himself. Not that it matters…

  • yomama

    Obviously the above was written by a scatterbrained meth head.

  • PHD

    yeah, shake and bake is low quality and full of impurities unless you remove the impurities afterwards with solvent. You can also remove unreacted pseudo from meth that way as well (thru another solvent)

    i still dont understand is how can everyday items can be used. like tv ALWAYS says you can find these items under your fridge.???

  • Whyohwhy

    wow. you are a jerk, duponic.

  • Milton

    Weed is for losers who don’t getting like properly high.

  • dupanicisatard

    You talk about grammar mistakes.

    You had no capital letter to begin your very first sentence, “kk…”. You didn’t even use an actual word.

    There was no comma after (amoung you”).

    By the way, grammar is the proper spelling, not “grammer”

    For your next mistake, “….clearly a uneducated…”, should be (clearly an uneducated).

    There is no comma after inexperienced or hillbilly. A comma after each one or after either would be appropriate. I really want to see hill-billy hyphenated .

    You need a comma after absolute and inbred.

    I needs to be capitalized.

    I’ll is the proper spelling.

    Once again, you can’t even spell the word grammar properly.

    You shouldn’t have two periods at the end of your last sentence.

    Your last sentence is a run-on, and should end at “you are”. so lets call this paragraph four sentences instead of three.

    In just four sentences, you managed to botch the English language m, with eleven mistakes.

    In any case, I just thought you should know this.
    just as Chelsea up there is inbred to you, you are extremely unintelligent and stupid to me. At least the post you flamed had some small semblance of substance in it.

    Does anyone know what kind of reaction a dog would have to chewing on one of these bottles? My friend has a lab who was chewing on a bottle and she’d never seen stories on this so she just tossed it out. It was thrown in to her yard. Now he isn’t acting like himself. I’d think it would be a quicker reaction than 12 hours but I have no clue. I’m trying to find information but I keep ending up on sites telling me how to make it, which makes me pissed as hell. HELP!
