I have a hunch something exciting is going to happen in the pork belly market

That's about all I wanted to say, after I saw this item on thestate.com:

    This recipe is the Bacon Explosion, modestly called by its inventors “the BBQ Sausage Recipe of all Recipes.”
    The instructions for constructing this massive torpedo-shaped
amalgamation of two pounds of bacon woven through and around two pounds
of sausage and slathered in barbecue sauce first appeared last month on
the Web site of a team of Kansas City competition barbecuers. They say
well more than 16,000 Web sites have linked to the recipe, celebrating
or sometimes scolding its excessiveness. A fresh audience could be
ready to discover it on Super Bowl Sunday.

Don't anybody tell Paula Moore over at PETA. Or George the Lobster, either.

Even I might want to pass on this carnivorous extravaganza. Although, on the upside, I'm not allergic to the recipe, which is not something I can often say about junk food…

Pork bellies, of course, are where we get bacon, which you might find in a bacon, lettuce and tomato sandwich

    I clicked on the recipe today — morbid curiosity, really.
    Anything birthed at a place called Burnt Finger BBQ and looking like that can only be appreciated as man food. Which, I guess, IS something.
    But ugh…

    I dunno, looks like a decent dish to serve during the 30 days of Ramadan. Other than that, I see no practical purpose for the concoction unless suicide by cholesterol is your preferred method of dying. But, after giving it some thought, I’ll bet it tastes good.

  3. Capital A

    On a related note and if you’re traveling through Rock Hill, SC, you will want to bypass the newly opened Maurice Bessinger’s. It has no grill so that means no buffet or burgers. Even the food there is just…missing…that certain je ne sais quois in comparison to the original Piggie Park.
    Maurice et al ensured that the new place was outfitted with a small booth hocking his implicitly racist propoganda, though. So, it does have THAT going for it…
