Bacone, a cone made of bacon that you can fill with goodness.

It’s been done. Someone has finally created the bacon cone or bacone. The one pictured above is filled with scrambled eggs, country gravy, and topped a biscuit. That’s right; it’s comfort food for on the go.

Just think about how amazing this would be if it was filled with maple ice cream. I guess it would be a little mess since the bacone is not tightly sealed. But I don’t think you would have to worry about it melting, since it would be eating is just a few seconds.

If you had a bacone, what goodness would you fill it with?

Bacon LIVE: Real Men Eat Pig Brains

On last night’s show Sean share with us a pork product he found at a local discount store, Pork Brains. We didn’t eat them on the show but we plan to give them a try this weekend. Out of our friends we want to see whose man enough to try them first.

We also talked about a movie that Sean and I made a long time ago and never put up online. It has a great bacon related scene in it, so I will try to get it up as soon as I find a copy of it.

Sean will not be on the show for the next two weeks. This means that I will be doing the show solo or have to find a fill in. Sean said he will be back November 10, 2010 so don’t worry. So if you’re going to miss he you might want to watch this show more the once.

Bacon Craft: The Bacon Magnet Bookmark

Do you remember reading books when they were printed on paper? Yeah me either.

If you still read paper books, then I found the perfect bacon craft for you, the bacon bookmark. It’s really simple to make. All you need is a printer, scissors, and some magnet tape. If you need detailed instructions, head over to the inventors website, Wild Olive, and she will get you up in running in no time. She even has premade designs for you to use!

Now after you have your bookmark you going to need some books to read. Here are two that every bacon lover should have on their reading list.

  • Bacon: A Love Story – This book is written by Heather Lauer of Bacon Unwrapped. She, like me, is one of the bacon blogging pioneers. Her book tells you everything you ever wanted to know about bacon. It’s the perfect reference book to have handy when your friends start asking you the history of bacon.
  • BBQ Makes Everything Better – Do you remember the Bacon Explosion? Well this book is written by the creators, Jason Day and Aaron Chronister. I didn’t know a thing about how to barbeque, but then I got this book and now I am expert (or at least I think I am). They walk you thought everything, what you need to get started, how to cook, and how to have fun doing it. This is a must have if you own a grill!

It’s also worth noting that I am featured in both of the books, so you may think I am a little biased. But these really are the best bacon books available right now. Just read the Amazon reviews and you can see for yourself.

FYI: The links above are affiliate links to Amazon.com. That means if you buy the book after clicking those links I get a little bacon spending money.

Bacon LIVE: Bacon has been around forever!

It’s Friday and I am just now posting the show and show notes. The reason of this is because I experienced a double fail. First, Ustream seemingly didnt record the video version of the show. Second, when I did have the audio podcast ready my site was down so I couldn’t update it. Oh and now the first 45 minutes of the show just appeared on Ustream so at least something was recorded. Okay I’m done complaining, on to the show.

On this weeks show Sean and I talk about the old bacon costume photo that has been floating around the Internets, movies with digital editions, our disappointment with people being disrespectful with bacon, our hate of wasting food, and secrete menu items at restaurants.

It was a really good show and I am sad you will not be able to see all of the video from it. Luckily, I always record the podcast version directly on my computer so we will never lose a second of the action!

Bacon Costume From 1894 Proves The “Bacon Fad” Has Been Around Forever

Its official, we now have proof that bacon is not just another fad food trend. Back in 1894 a gentlemen that I may or may not be related to, dress as a slab of bacon for a Fancy Dress ball. He won first prize and also made the costume himself.

It seems that back in the day, bacon was just as popular has it is now. Looks like the bacon haters are going to have to find another way to get us to stop talking about bacon. Calling it just another food fad is a downright lie!

Grab yourself an Enjoy Bacon T-Shirt and tell the world that bacon is not a fad, its away of life!

In related news, how many of you are having a bacon themed costume this year for Halloween?

Does Pancetta also make everything better?

If I lived in Italy this blog would have been named “Mr. Pancettapants”. That’s because pancetta, what most people call Italian bacon, and American bacon are just about the same thing. The only difference is how they’re made.

Bacon is made from pork belly that is brined and then smoked. The belly than can be sliced to various thicknesses. It’s traditional to serve bacon in the morning for breakfast.

Pancetta is also from pork bellies but they just season it with salt and pepper. Then it’s curled in to a tight roll and wrapped in a casing to hold the shape. Its then left to dried out for a few months. It’s usually served during lunch or dinner.

So as you can see the only real difference is, one is smoke and the other is just cured. This brings me to a very interesting question: Is it the pork belly that makes it bacon or is it the smoking?

Let me know what your thoughts are on this. Can pancetta share the same claim that bacon does? I might have to make a Pancetta Explosion and find out myself.

Bacon LIVE: The Free Market Will Save Bacon

On last night’s show Sean had a very important message: He wanted us to stop supporting bad bacon. He even created a petition for us to sign to help keep us on track.

We, as bacon lovers, need to use the free market to put a stop to bad bacon. This means that when you go to a restaurant, and they serve low quality bacon, we must never order it again until they fix it. I will be posting an article Sean wrote about this on Friday, so save your questions until after you read that.

We also talked about a bunch of other stuff, but like last week I am going to make you listen to find out what that other stuff was.
