For all your End of Days/Mayan Calender/Armegeddon preparation needs!

Gotta be as good or better than Bacon SPAM!

I've seen that product elsewhere...thought about it, but the idea of fishing around for canned bacon swimming in grease...well, not sure I'm that hungry. Bacon Spam? Never heard of it, have to take a look in the stores here. As an Army brat living in Germany, end of the month, just before paycheck, meals tended to be spam and rice-a-roni. Good, healthy food...

I admit it gives me a chuckle to picture William: knife betwixt his teeth, M4 in hand, and an assault pack full of tactical bacon.

I think I missed this in October, though I have seen links to tactical bacon. My idea of tactical bacon is a trebuchet and a pig farm. Nothing hurts like being hit by pig hurled several miles through the air. You can kill your enemy with flying pigs and then cook the ammunition in celebration.

Hummm... a new meaning to the expression "When Pigs Fly."

Nothing starts the day like a little pig meat for breakfast!

Damm, I even order Porkslap Pale Ale at the local cafe and on tap no less. :D

I received a post on Facebook of a photo of Redneck Turtle Burgers. Looks like a swell addition to a pirate feast.

It covers your three basic food groups... beef patties, franks and bacon.

Whiskey Bacon Jam Recipe

Ingredients

500g streaky bacon (it has to be streaky), chopped into small dice

4 cloves garlic, finely chopped

1 red onion, finely diced

50g brown sugar

50mls maple syrup

50ml cider vinegar

1 tbsp red wine vinegar

150ml fresh brewed coffee (NOT instant – important)

100ml whiskey of your choice (Less y'have a bottle open I wouldn't use a single malt, blended'll do)

1 fresh red chilli fine chopped, deseeded if you want less heat

Method

Sauté the bacon over a medium heat until starting to crisp.

Take the bacon out and pour off most of the bacon fat, leaving just enough to fry the onion until soft but not coloured – about 5 minutes. Add the garlic for about a minute.

Transfer the bacon, onion, garlic to a large pot with the rest of the ingredients.

Simmer gently for one hour, adding a little water every 30 minutes if required (I only had to do this towards the end). Add the red wine vinegar in the last 5 minutes.

Pulse it in a food processor briefly (to retain the course texture) – although it can be quite nice coarse.

Ready to serve.

Grymm,

For those of us who are deprived of "proper" bacon in the States, can you direct us to a pic of what streaky bacon is supposed to look like? We are finally getting some stores in my area which might actually carry the right bacon. I just need a good picture for reference.

Grymm,

Nevermind. Just located a pic of "streaky bacon" where the caption says "American style bacon". So it looks like they're one and the same. Easy for a change :D

Hot dogs made with bacon. It makes hot dogs better, but it reduces the bacon. Of course, you can wrap them bacon dogs in more bacon.
