Apparently, the economic downturn has also resulted in fewer bacon-related culinary innovations.  Belt tightening indeed.  So, instead of something bacon related, I give you something from its cousin: how about a french fry-coated hot dog.  Frankly (zing!), I am surprised that this was not invented for the Texas state fair.  Instead, it was invented by the Koreans and perfected by the genius at  I would be remiss, however, if I did not mention that it would be better with bacon.  And American cheese. 

Edit: my dreams have been realized.  This is a clear sign that the bacon-onomy is in pork-covery.

I know it’s been a long time, but I’ve been busy.  There is one thing that could have woken me from my retail season slumber, forwarded by my friend Dylan: the bacon explosion.  This work of pure genius must be seen to be appreciated in all of its artery-hardening, salivation-inducing glory.  Check it out at

Bacon-Flavored Bourbon, How Could This Be Bad?

August 18, 2008 1 comment

Work and work-related travel have taken their toll on me recently, and you, my two readers, have undoubtedly suffered because of it.  I imagine you asking yourselves “where are my pork-related updates and heroic examples of stunt eating?” while restlessly pacing your kitchen.  We’re all concerned for you.  While I work on my next porky oeuvre (I assure you, it will be porky), I thought I would give you this great recipe a friend sent me.   I love the technique – like many minor strokes of genius, it’s pretty easy and has the additional benefit of producing bacon.

Latest Innovation: Canned Bacon

June 12, 2008 1 comment

You may be asking yourself, as I did recently, how one would consume bacon during a nuclear holocaust, alpine expedition, or god forbid, a kitchen renovation.  Survivalists, end-timers, and kitchen-lacking bacon lovers, your prayers have finally been answered in the form of canned bacon

This can should have a halo.  A somewhat crispy, somewhat chewy halo.
