Let him cook meaning

Let him cook means letting someone continue talking, playing, or working on their strategy.

The phrase is similar to saying that the person is “onto something”.

For instance, Russel Wilson, the former quarterback of the Seahawks used to complain about not throwing the ball enough.

As a result, the hashtag “#lethimcook” was trending as people wanted Wilson to throw the ball more.

Eventually, he got traded to another team and he’s terrible.

Another example is when someone has an unpopular opinion or hot take and another person wants to interrupt them.

That’s when another person will step in and say “Let him cook”.
