Your Heart Can Take It

I’ve decided it’s time I got myself a meat smoker. I like to BBQ. I like smoked meat. And now I have a reason that cannot be ignored!

I’ve put it off for years, finding one excuse after another to avoid buying one. Many of my friends have already taken the plunge and it seems that my cowboy personality is in serious jeopardy due to my lack of cooking meat in this manner.

So what changed my mind? After years of grilling, why suddenly make the switch?

Two words: Bacon Explosion

5,000 calories, 500 grams of fat, 4 pounds of pork and all the heart attack you can handle.

When challenged to come up with a BBQ recipe for bacon, the guys over at www.BBQaddicts.com headed out to the local butcher and bought twenty dollars worth of pork. They began weaving strips of raw bacon into a mat. The two spackled the bacon mat with a layer of sausage, covered that with a crunchy layer of cooked bacon, and rolled it up tight.



I’d love to see the guy from Man vs. Food give this a shot.

As a lover of foods that are bad for me, I am dying to try one of these. Of course I won’t eat the whole thing myself. Well I might, but not in one sitting!
