    Mythbustin'.

    Many moons ago someone a lot smarter than me said something along the lines of, "<span style="font-style:italic;">There <span style="font-weight:bold;">can</span> be too much of a good thing</span>".

    Taking that statement literally and pondering a bit, I came to a few quick caveats.

    Powder skiing?

    Bacon?

    While I'd like to write that I immediately rattled off countless other exceptions to that "rule", the reality is that once I had pork on the brain, salivation and obsession quickly followed. Can a guy actually have too much bacon?

    Unpossible.

    Or so I theorized. Which quickly morphed into a need to test the theory. And it didn't take long to find <a href="http://www.bbqaddicts.com/blog/recipes/bacon-explosion/">the means</a> to do so.

    I didn't come up with any other exceptions on the ride to the market, but I *did* get there PDQ.

    (<span style="font-style:italic;">To my dear, dear non-meat eating friends that find themselves sickly fascinated but afraid to read further: Click <a href="http://blog.smokeindaeye.com/2009/01/30/facon-explosion-the-fauxbq-recipe-of-all-recipes.aspx">HERE</a></span>).

    You've been given ample warning.

    Back at the ranch, I rolled up my sleeves and got to work.

    Take 12 strips and weave 'em.
    <a href="http://picasaweb.google.com/mike.curiak/Amal?authkey=Gv1sRgCLvLwaWRu8rLHQ&feat=embedwebsit e#5401599587410663266"><img src="http://lh5.ggpht.com/_Z3iU73Uw_T8/SvZWNLKCV2I/AAAAAAAANxA/HAj2iMtRRH4/s800/IMG_3086.JPG" /></a>

    Baste liberally.
    <a href="http://picasaweb.google.com/lh/photo/twPKLP9XXtB8L0iBm487LQ?authkey=Gv1sRgCLvLwaWRu8rLH Q&feat=embedwebsite"><img src="http://lh3.ggpht.com/_Z3iU73Uw_T8/SvZWPSoPHAI/AAAAAAAANxI/FcX-lhU_DcU/s800/IMG_3093.JPG" /></a>

    How much? 'Bout that much.
    <a href="http://picasaweb.google.com/lh/photo/3-U8muBKHizl4F22-59O9w?authkey=Gv1sRgCLvLwaWRu8rLHQ&feat=embedwebsi te"><img src="http://lh5.ggpht.com/_Z3iU73Uw_T8/SvZWSNSOSyI/AAAAAAAANxQ/2AiIbf-hI54/s800/IMG_3096.JPG" /></a>

    Unwad 2 (yep, two) pounds of sausage and cover your weave.

    Meanwhile, sizzle up <span style="font-style:italic;">another</span> pound in the background.
    <object width="900" height="506"><param name="allowfullscreen" value="true" /><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always" /><param name="movie" value="http://vimeo.com/moogaloop.swf?clip_id=7496325&amp;server=vimeo.com &amp;show_title=0&amp;show_byline=0&amp;show_portr ait=0&amp;color=ff9933&amp;fullscreen=1" /><embed src="http://vimeo.com/moogaloop.swf?clip_id=7496325&amp;server=vimeo.com &amp;show_title=0&amp;show_byline=0&amp;show_portr ait=0&amp;color=ff9933&amp;fullscreen=1" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowfullscreen="true" allowscriptaccess="always" width="900" height="506"></embed></object>

    Once that pound is done to taste, chop it up and cover the sausage, then roll the whole slithery beautious mess up.

    Delicately place this priceless gem onto the grill. Ovens can be used in a pinch, and a smoker is purported to be the best way. Run what ya brung.
    <a href="http://picasaweb.google.com/mike.curiak/Amal?authkey=Gv1sRgCLvLwaWRu8rLHQ&feat=embedwebsit e#5401599730582279074"><img src="http://lh4.ggpht.com/_Z3iU73Uw_T8/SvZWVggz06I/AAAAAAAANxc/pkHdSPxGmtQ/s800/IMG_3099.JPG" /></a>

    Common practice with this critter is a BBQ theme. I'm not much of a BBQ fan. Never have been. Friends afflicted with a BBQ problem have suggested that I just haven't had <span style="font-style:italic;">good</span> BBQ yet. Following that rationale, I haven't had <span style="font-style:italic;">good</span> saddle sores yet either, but I've had enough of both to have formed an opinion.

    Anyhoo, I punted the BBQ theme and used maple syrup to baste the outside of the weave.
    <a href="http://picasaweb.google.com/lh/photo/Vv9PDEgDBTeMkg_IvWme4g?authkey=Gv1sRgCLvLwaWRu8rLH Q&feat=embedwebsite"><img src="http://lh6.ggpht.com/_Z3iU73Uw_T8/SvZWZBU7s-I/AAAAAAAANxk/kHRu-e5Js3o/s800/IMG_3101.JPG" /></a>

    That 4" thick slab o' lean, juicy flesh takes awhile to cook through. Get some other stuff done while you wait.

    Check in on occasion, noting the sumptuous sizzling.

    After three hours at 225*, I couldn't wait anymore.

    Ahem. I mean after three hours IT WAS DONE!

    When I started the project Herself showed little interest, tossing her hair and sauntering away muttering something like <span style="font-style:italic;">"Men... sheesh...</span>". Curiously, she reappeared at the Ultimate Moment.
    <a href="http://picasaweb.google.com/lh/photo/MHsM3m3mqcZhCtsWgCq6GA?authkey=Gv1sRgCLvLwaWRu8rLH Q&feat=embedwebsite"><img src="http://lh3.ggpht.com/_Z3iU73Uw_T8/SvZWhvUKQbI/AAAAAAAANx8/B_RjJyTHYGc/s800/IMG_3109.JPG" /></a>

    Herself, not being afflicted with the chronic quite the way I am, savored a few quick forkfuls, emitted some perfunctory yummy noises, then walked away. Just like that--she walked away. Impressive.

    I stuck with it. The superdeliciousness of it is, of course, completely indescribable. After about 3/4 of a pound I felt *zero* need nor desire to stop eating. If anything I wanted to eat more, faster. In fact, I'm 100% sure that I could, without hesitation, guilt, or even a second thought, easily polish off the whole thing.

    Completely confirming my original theory.

    Ah... Bacon Explosion! That's a beautimous hunk of tastiness right there...... and oh so wrong. But that wouldn't stop me from eating it.

    Now all you have to do is follow it up with my son's friend Delaney's Prescription Strength Bownies (one is amazing... two will kill you. Seriously) covered with a generous dolop of vanilla ice cream and hot fudge and you've really got something special.

    The just reward for those who are willing to burn thousands of calories mountain biking.

    That's great! Anyone else love bacon as long as it is at least warm? Can't always wait for it to finish cooking! Haha.

    My bro-in-law has an idea for something of similar proportions...a hot/sweet sausage wrapped in bacon, dipped in pancake batter, then deep fried. I just might have to give that a try someday.

    For an awesome bacon quickie, try this... Bacon and peanut butter on your choice of toast. I prefer rye. Totally awesome sandwich, yet doesn't hold a candle to that woven thing. That's totally badass.

    I have been 'explosion-curious' since I first laid eyes on a pic of one.

    I am wondering if you think it would be possible to slice the finished product into slabs or patties fit to assemble a bacon explosion, lettuce, tomato and avocado sandwich?

    My mouth waters as it awaits an answer. . . . .

    I'd forgotten about these. Like the chupacabra, this lurks in the back of my mind until a reported sighting. If I hadn''t already laid in a Smithfield ham, this would mos def be my contribution to Thanksgiving.

    LOL. That was kinda cruel to bring them up but not post a pic or recipe. Sorry. I'd just polished off a dish-full last night when I posted that so they were on my mind.... but was too lazy to copy the recipe over into the post. I'll get it up when I get home for lunch unless I can find it on Delaney's blog.

    That is plain torture for a guy who can't eat pork for two months straight.... I don't care the lack of beer, lackanooky and isolation. But I do really miss pork, bacon in particular.

    Also, firch, your link is awesome on a smaller scale.
    And to keep this on track, how much riding is required to burn off something like this?

    Killer! Reminds me of my favorite party challenge: Name five things -- not including deserts -- that can NOT be improved by adding bacon.

    Can't be done!

    Do you always do the dishes wearing a back-pack??

    I'm thinking there'll be a few of those hidden away in bags and pogies at the start lines of many an endurance race this winter......

    Most definitely. When you're in the 'assembly phase' you just need to pay close attention to the weave and to making sure that as you roll it up, you keep things *tight*. Being a first effort, I didn't do that well on either, but it's still sliceable into ~1/2" slabs.

    Wait a second...

    ...is it five o'clock already?

    You, Sir, are a freakin' genius.

    Do you think I could disguise one as a turkey? No matter, I'm making it anyway. Screw those foul-eating pansies.

    Maybe I could hide it in the turkey.

    I risk getting kicked off the internet permanently for saying this, but I can stand a strip, maybe two, of bacon once in awhile. I couldn't even take a bite of that monstrosity.

    I'm devoting my life to obtaining one more slab of the gypsy bacon some Czech friends turned me on to. You don't even have to fry it, just slice off a hunk. Beautiful smoky black chunk of heaven. Worse than smack.

    So what do you know about bacon?

    PS - Hey Mike is that Gunny loop about 32 seconds into this vid?


    If so, thanks for making it look like a speed bump. I Just rode that section for the first time Sunday and was all psyched. You did it at about 15mph. I quit!

    How about a little sour cream for your composite?

    I thought that you feverishly wiping the sour cream off your burrito that day was because it was BAD for you. I guess you just don't like sour cream.

    I can't wait to see your take on getting too much powder skiing. Need some help?

    What do I know about bacon? to be honest, F All. But I have travelled the world and can confirm that the bacon in the US of A is SHITE..... It has no meat to it for want of a better word, just a thin piece of nothing if that makes sense.... I think the folk from the US of A understand that Canadian bacon is different to the US of A bacon... Well in New Zealand it is way way better than Canadian bacon also.....

    Hey! Quit screwing around on the internet and get back to work!

    I scraped the sour cream off so that I could have bacon for dessert.

    Still thinkering on how to *try* to do too much powder skiing...

    Canadian bacon... come on, it's barely bacon, more like ham really.

    The best bacon has no meat.

    It's spek.

    Nope

    American (Streaky) Bacon is made from pork belly.
    Canadian ( Back Bacon, Peameal Bacon ) is made from pork loin.

    Bacon is brined, (salt water solution ) then futher finished by Cold Air drying, boiling, or smoking.

    Incredible creation, artful and decadent. Bonus for the maple syrup. Grew up in VT, learned to put it on everything, even do syrup shots occasionally. (8 seconds in microwave, try it)

    I tried to explore the limits of too much powder skiing years ago and while I never have heli-skied, I've gotten up the hill every other way and while I've had some days and weeks that were the snow equivalent of your woven bacon delight roll, I have never come close to wanting to stop.

    So I would have to say that there is no such thing as too much powder skiing. But don't take my work for it, try it for yourself.

    Since we're expressing our devotion for meat and more meat, thought I'd share this one with you before Thanksgiving rolls around.

    Ladies and gentlemen, I give you the Turducken.

    I'll be sampling my first Turducken this Thanksgiving. My wife initially refused, but I finally won her over with one from Cajungrocer.com. It's got cornbread and crawfish stuffing. I am such a redneck.

    I can't stomach much greasy food. Maybe a couple bites, 5 or 6 tops. Also, other than scrambled eggs and boiling the occasional roast I don't cook. But I commend your fortitude in creating and consuming this culinary abomination.

    Not to derail this wonderfull all-meat post but here's the recipe for Delaney's Prescription Strength Brownies that a few were asking about. All I had was a hand-written copy from my son that I was having a hard time deciphering so bake at your own risk.

    Prescription Strength Brownies

    12 Tbsp unsalted butter (something not sure what.....melted maybe)
    3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
    1 1/2 cups (something) sugar
    1/4 tsp salt
    2 large eggs
    1 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
    3/4 cup flower
    1/2 cup something.... topping, I think, which was chocolate chips and pecans.

    Grease a 8" pyrex glass baking pan with butter.

    Remove melted butter from heat, add cocoa powder and wisk until smooth.
    Add sugar and salt then wisk
    Add eggs one at a time wisking after each egg
    Add vanilla
    Sprinkle flour over chocolate mixture and stir
    Put in baking dish and top with chocolate chips and nuts (I think it must be a half cup each).

    Bake 32 minutes on 350

    Cool on rack.

    They are amazing plain but with vanilla ice cream and hot fudge they are life-altering.

    Mmmm bacon...

    Mike, that looks amazing - I am a BBQ fan but I think the maple syrup is a better substitution...hmmm I have a sister that is a vegetarian, I bet I would get stuck with a carving knife if I bring this to Thanksgiving dinner.

    As for turducken, I made one last year. It was wonderful but make sure you cook it low and slow - it takes forever. Krob, I had heard of those brownies once before; here is a link with the full recipe.

    And since CD brought up turducken, allow me to bring a turducken wrapped in 5lbs of bacon to your attention:

    small lump of peasant cheese in the bottom of hot chocolate, cheese absorbs excess cocao and is semi-melty when you're done.

    (peasant cheese = any number of semi-hard cheeses that're mostly bland and hence don't mess with the flavour of your cocao, monterey jack, mozzarella, that kinda thing)

    Powder skiing?

    Bacon?

    While I'd like to write that I immediately rattled off countless other exceptions to that "rule", the reality is that once I had pork on the brain, salivation and obsession quickly followed. Can a guy actually have too much bacon?

    Unpossible.

    Or so I theorized. Which quickly morphed into a need to test the theory. And it didn't take long to find <a href="http://www.bbqaddicts.com/blog/recipes/bacon-explosion/">the means</a> to do so.

    I didn't come up with any other exceptions on the ride to the market, but I *did* get there PDQ.

    You've been given ample warning.

    Back at the ranch, I rolled up my sleeves and got to work.

    Take 12 strips and weave 'em.
    <a href="http://picasaweb.google.com/mike.curiak/Amal?authkey=Gv1sRgCLvLwaWRu8rLHQ&feat=embedwebsit e#5401599587410663266"><img src="http://lh5.ggpht.com/_Z3iU73Uw_T8/SvZWNLKCV2I/AAAAAAAANxA/HAj2iMtRRH4/s800/IMG_3086.JPG" /></a>

    Baste liberally.
    <a href="http://picasaweb.google.com/lh/photo/twPKLP9XXtB8L0iBm487LQ?authkey=Gv1sRgCLvLwaWRu8rLH Q&feat=embedwebsite"><img src="http://lh3.ggpht.com/_Z3iU73Uw_T8/SvZWPSoPHAI/AAAAAAAANxI/FcX-lhU_DcU/s800/IMG_3093.JPG" /></a>

    How much? 'Bout that much.
    <a href="http://picasaweb.google.com/lh/photo/3-U8muBKHizl4F22-59O9w?authkey=Gv1sRgCLvLwaWRu8rLHQ&feat=embedwebsi te"><img src="http://lh5.ggpht.com/_Z3iU73Uw_T8/SvZWSNSOSyI/AAAAAAAANxQ/2AiIbf-hI54/s800/IMG_3096.JPG" /></a>

    Unwad 2 (yep, two) pounds of sausage and cover your weave.

    Meanwhile, sizzle up <span style="font-style:italic;">another</span> pound in the background.
    <object width="900" height="506"><param name="allowfullscreen" value="true" /><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always" /><param name="movie" value="http://vimeo.com/moogaloop.swf?clip_id=7496325&amp;server=vimeo.com &amp;show_title=0&amp;show_byline=0&amp;show_portr ait=0&amp;color=ff9933&amp;fullscreen=1" /><embed src="http://vimeo.com/moogaloop.swf?clip_id=7496325&amp;server=vimeo.com &amp;show_title=0&amp;show_byline=0&amp;show_portr ait=0&amp;color=ff9933&amp;fullscreen=1" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowfullscreen="true" allowscriptaccess="always" width="900" height="506"></embed></object>

    Once that pound is done to taste, chop it up and cover the sausage, then roll the whole slithery beautious mess up.

    Delicately place this priceless gem onto the grill. Ovens can be used in a pinch, and a smoker is purported to be the best way. Run what ya brung.
    <a href="http://picasaweb.google.com/mike.curiak/Amal?authkey=Gv1sRgCLvLwaWRu8rLHQ&feat=embedwebsit e#5401599730582279074"><img src="http://lh4.ggpht.com/_Z3iU73Uw_T8/SvZWVggz06I/AAAAAAAANxc/pkHdSPxGmtQ/s800/IMG_3099.JPG" /></a>

    Common practice with this critter is a BBQ theme. I'm not much of a BBQ fan. Never have been. Friends afflicted with a BBQ problem have suggested that I just haven't had <span style="font-style:italic;">good</span> BBQ yet. Following that rationale, I haven't had <span style="font-style:italic;">good</span> saddle sores yet either, but I've had enough of both to have formed an opinion.

    Anyhoo, I punted the BBQ theme and used maple syrup to baste the outside of the weave.

    That 4" thick slab o' lean, juicy flesh takes awhile to cook through. Get some other stuff done while you wait.

    After three hours at 225*, I couldn't wait anymore.

    Ahem. I mean after three hours IT WAS DONE!

    When I started the project Herself showed little interest, tossing her hair and sauntering away muttering something like <span style="font-style:italic;">"Men... sheesh...</span>". Curiously, she reappeared at the Ultimate Moment.
    <a href="http://picasaweb.google.com/lh/photo/MHsM3m3mqcZhCtsWgCq6GA?authkey=Gv1sRgCLvLwaWRu8rLH Q&feat=embedwebsite"><img src="http://lh3.ggpht.com/_Z3iU73Uw_T8/SvZWhvUKQbI/AAAAAAAANx8/B_RjJyTHYGc/s800/IMG_3109.JPG" /></a>

    Herself, not being afflicted with the chronic quite the way I am, savored a few quick forkfuls, emitted some perfunctory yummy noises, then walked away. Just like that--she walked away. Impressive.

    I stuck with it. The superdeliciousness of it is, of course, completely indescribable. After about 3/4 of a pound I felt *zero* need nor desire to stop eating. If anything I wanted to eat more, faster. In fact, I'm 100% sure that I could, without hesitation, guilt, or even a second thought, easily polish off the whole thing.

    Completely confirming my original theory.

    Just more proof that bacon truly is the "Jack of All Meats". Hell, you could probably fashion some rim strips with a lean cut of bacon.

    Nice touch of wrenching on the bike while it cooks. May I suggest bacon wrapped scallops as an appetizer to this savoury meal?

    Or some of those bacon wrapped chicken livers?
    Too many bikes, and just enough time to ride them.

    Mmmm two of our organic Tamworth pigs are going to piggy heaven (well thats were the kids think there going) this week to be converted into pork. One is being sold to a local restaurant but the other is a fat little ***ker and is going to make a big heap of joints. Just got to wait till Xmas when the hams and bacon will be ready, mmm salivating already.

    Repeated exclamation point overuse will just cheapen the experience.

    Mike's version beats the snot out of the BBQ variety. A slice of this makes the best fried egg sandwich you've ever had.

    I think this thread should be baconized. Er, stickied. Bacon is good.
    Sometimes, I question the value of my content.

    Another myth is, people think that they can eat w/e, such as this, and go ride a bike to burn it off. Truth is, you're gonna force a heart attack sooner than expected. Of course, that's IF you eat like this on a daily basis.

    Although, that bacon sure did look good.

    Ehhh.... other myth: heart attack... sorry, ain't true. Bacon & Eggs is pretty close to the perfect meal. Plenty of protein, plenty of good fats (been like that for millions of years...) and close to ZERO carbs. Keeps your sugar level under control so no insulin spike. Very efficient!!!
