I don't think workplace health and safety would allow that here...

You can get a very similar effect by throwing a snowball into a pot of molten metal. The steam explosion can empty the pot. One guy put an ingot of aluminum into a pot without properly warming it. When it got hot enough to turn the moisture inside the ingot to steam, we got an aluminum coated ceiling plus aluminum rain. Only the guy loading the pot was nearby and his burns luckly turned out to be minor. The metal went mostly up instead of at him. He got a few pieces of rain on his head which gave him some unusual bald scars.

OSHA would be appalled. But it does sound cool. From far away.

I will try and get pics of them dumping slag Minus the water jugs ( Yes the saftey dept made them quit ), after one nite , one cold and snowy nite when I55( the MAIN N-S coridore ) was shut down because of snow and ice , they dumped a bucket of slag ( with a jug of water under it ) , Yes it was a big resounding BOOM !!!( I was there ) So big infact that the rescue squad ( from town) came running because they thought that with THAT big a BOOM some one was SHURELY Fucked up , after the 5th fire truck left it was desided that THAT Would NEVER Happen again .
