Bacon

Bacon Martini! (Found here)

Lightly mist martini glass with vermouth, and rim the edge with bacon grease. In a cocktail shaker, mix 3oz vodka, one dash tobasco, and one dash olive juice. Shake well and strain into cocktail glass. Skim excess bacon grease from surface of cocktail. Garnish with one slice of bacon.

BA-K-47. The very best there is. When you absolutely, positively got to kill every artery in your chest, accept no substitutes.

I love the quotes left on the thread at the far bottom because they all seem to point to same thing- a definite waste of good bacon.

Unless of course you got hungry and like one post state, "It gives new meaning to eat your gun."

Maple-Bacon lollipops

http://www.lollyphile.com/maple-baco... feel pretty safe in saying that we're the first people to ever make a bacon-based lollipop. And not just any bacon, either- we use sustainable, organic, cured bacon- we kinda felt that it went well with the pure Vermont maple syrup we were using as a base, you know?

While we admit that it's pretty far from the norm (it's definitely not kosher!), once you make that initial leap of faith and try it out, we're positive that you'll love it. The salty chunks of bacon make a delicious and unique counterpoint to the subtle sweetness of the maple, and oh, yeah- you'll be eating an oh-my-god bacon lollipop!

A perfect gift for the sweet-toothed pork aficionado in your life.

I recently discovered that Solomon's in Victoria serves a brunch cocktail called the Bacon and Egg. The main ingredients are bacon-infused bourbon and a raw egg, and it comes with a toast garnish. Tasted sort of like strong eggnog with a slight bacony aftertaste.

This thread shouldn't languish too long, so I'm posting a link to a local-to-me gourmet sausage shop.

Bacon of the Month Club!

$315 for a 12 month membership is too steep for my tastes. They include a lot of bacon swag but I'd rather have the bacon a la carte option for say $150/yr.

In these economic times, the only club I'd pay $315 for is the "Have Sex With The Maxim Babe Of The Month" club.

Have her bring over a pound of bacon at the same time and you've got a real money-maker there.

Only thing I would change is make it with the bacon bra... You could eat it off her!!!

On a totally different, and notably less interesting, topic, I have decided that I need a waffle iron.

I'll go $325 if the each Maxim babe servers a helping of bacon-infused waffles.

This is a difficult thread to find with the search engine.

Anyway, Time just released a pretty bacon-tastic article.

"There is nothing bacon does not improve. Bacon is the new black," says Farr, whose charcuterie company produces 4505 Chicharrones, the pork snacks favored by several San Francisco bars and restaurants. "I have five vegan friends who close their eyes when they eat them and pretend they are potato chips," Farr says. "Bacon is the gateway meat."

BACON IS THE GATEWAY MEAT.

I want a bumper sticker that says that.

Now you can have bacon-wrapped twinkies following the apocalypse! http://www.thinkgeek.com/caffeine/wacky-candy/c399/ It claims to have a 10 year shelf life. Go go Gadget preservatives!

Tactical Bacon sounds awesome.

Munchin' on bacon, while slaughtering zombies? That doesn't sound as much like the apocalypse, as it does heaven.

While it's hard to make bacon bad, I'm thinking 10-year-old canned bacon would not be delicious. Well, maybe delicious relative to other 10-year-old canned foods...

So bacon, unlike wine, does not age well? I feel this is false, but to each his own.

I'd just like to report that my jar of Baconaisse is serving be well. Made a rocking 'wich last week with Turkey, Swiss, Bacon Tomato, Lettuce, Onion, Bacon Salt, Pepper, and topped with Baconaisse.

I <3 Sodium.

The local Fred Meyer is now stocking Baconaisse, and Winco has Bacon Salt in the bulk foods section. For the sake of my heart and arteries, I must remain strong.

Just realized I'm missing the first annual KC Bacon Fest today, but too late change my plans--it's brew/bbq day at my house, been going since 5 am. I will make plans to attend next year. Maybe I'll even start training now for next year's bacon eating contest.

You know what would make you really, really strong? Bacon.
