Okay.  Enough already.

Our blog queens have been relentless in beating me up about finally blogging.  (I won’t write their names, but they rhyme with Barren and Hurling)

I know our nation is facing an epidemic of obesity and cholesterol is a concern for most of us over 40 people over 40.  (Hurling, how do I get rid of that blatant lie I typed???) Nonetheless, I have finally found my inspiration for the first blog.

If you’re like me, and I know I am, you love anything that comes off a grill or a smoker.  (They’re different beasts, but I think I’ll leave that to another blog!)  Yankees who scoff at the idea of mullet turn to putty when sampling this divine fish after a session on the smoker.  The cheapest cuts of beef are rendered to excellence with a little hickory and a lot of time.

So, for your consideration, I point you to a most heavenly website–especially for those of us who know the difference between lump charcoal and the lowly briquette.  I give you—– THE BACON EXPLOSION!!

Not for the faint of heart…In fact it’s probably not good for any heart. Yet what started as slop & sow on a farm has become a masterpiece of porcine perfection.

    Funny that you mentioned that recipe because it’s an internet sensation. The New York Times did a great write-up of its success and the delicious recipe. I’m including the article in my latest “Articles of Interest” but you don’t read that either so here’s a link:

    Maybe you’ll learn something and continue to help our cause out!

    Not like this is really relevant, but you mentioned bacon and I came across this today – The Bacon Man.
