Bacon LIVE: IHOP has some Expensive Bacon

On last weeks show Sean tells us about his first IHOP experience. His dad kept telling them that they had the best bacon, so Sean had to see it for himself. He did say the bacon was good but it came at a cost. Watch the show to see what he had to say about it.

We also talked about eating all your can eat pancakes at Denny’s for charity, Kevin Bacon, my mustache, Twilight, and so much more.

The Royal Ontario Museum has a Bacon Rock

Kim, who works for pork company in Ontario, sent Sean and I this interesting photo. She calls in Bacon Rock and its was taken at the Royal Ontario Museum.

“Who would have thought a rock could look this tasty?” said Kim.

I will have to agree, it is a yummy looking rock.

Looking at it makes think that there is a monster that wonders the universe eating planets. And this is his prized food, rock bacon. One day we may have to come to the hard choice of either giving the monster our rock bacon as a pace offering or to protect it with our lives. I hope that day never comes.

Bacon LIVE: Bacon in Austin, TX

In September Beth and I went to Austin, TX for our honeymoon. On this show I tell Sean all about the trip and how much great bacon there is in Texas!

Sean got so excited that he wanted to take a road trip and I can’t blame him. Hearing about places like Hopdoddy and Frank any bacon lover would be willing to do anything to get there.

Watch the show and tell me I’m wrong.

Now that I am working from home full-time, a new era of Mr. Baconpants has begun. To start off with a clean slate this is the last of the old shows I am going to catch up on.

Bacon LIVE: 2011 Bacon Bash Recap

Do you remember that event we had at the Harris Grill in September? Well this is the recap we did on Bacon Live about that event. We talked about all things Bacon Bash and more.

The event was a success even in the mist of the bacon crisis. We would like to thank our sponsors: Wright Brand Bacon, Tender Belly, Sugardale Foods, Harris Grill, Bite Bistro, and Miller Lt. Without you none of this would be possible.

I have a bunch of videos and photos of the event so I will be compiling them in another post soon.

Also, I am going to be posting show notes to a few of our past shows this week. Since I fell so far behind, it would take to much for me to post all the shows on here. If you want to see all the shows just got to the Bacon LIVE page and follow the links to We have kept up with the shows, I just have slacked on the show notes.

It’s Official, the Bacon Nation Now has a Mrs. Baconpants

As many of you noticed I was MIA for almost two months, but don’t worry I have a good reason for the absence.

September was a busy month. Not only did I have to plan Pittsburgh’s biggest bacon event, I also had to help Beth plan our wedding. It seemed scheduling two important events in the same month was not my best idea.

Then, after the wedding (I will tell you all about that soon), Beth and I enjoyed our honeymoon and spent a lot of time getting our house back in order. We had crafting supplies everywhere from before the wedding and wrapping paper, boxes, and tons of new things from after.

I guess what I am trying to say is… I didn’t have time for Baconpants.

That’s going to change and now I have a Mrs. Baconpants (aka Beth Mosley) to help me share our love of all things beer and bacon!

Now on to the details. The wedding was great and everyone had an amazing time. Sean (aka Bacon Knight) was in my wedding party and he inspected all the bacon that day to make sure it was perfect. We had a whole station of bacon on the buffet which had: Bacon Mac and Cheese, bacon wrapped stuffed mushrooms, pulled pork (not bacon but close), and a lot more stuff that I can’t remember. I was a little nervous so I didn’t eat much that day.

For our wedding cake we had Maple Bacon Cupcakes and they were fantastic. We also has red velvet, but I told everyone that they would be a weirdo if they skipped on the bacon cupcake. I am not sure why people are so afraid of bacon on desserts. They don’t know what they are missing.

Don’t worry, I am done boring you with my wedding details but I am sure you were all wondering if we had bacon at our wedding. We did and it was perfect.

The Top Bacon Dishes in the USA

Infographics are all the rage now so the folks at GiftRocket decided to create one. Knowing that the internet loves bacon it was no surprise that they picked it as the topic. But I will have to give them credit. Instead of just recycling old bacon facts, they did some research and found out the most popular bacon dishes.

Now it’s not the most scientific study since they used social media as their data pool but its bacon so who cares. They searched for the top bacon dishes in all the major cities: New York, San Francisco, Portland, Chicago, Austin, San Diego, Atlanta, Boston, Philly, and Seattle.

In New York, Bacon-wrapped Hot Dogs is the top dish. I find this strange since its West coast dish but it’s nice to see New Yorkers making it their own. Other than that it’s a cool graphic and its amazing to see how each city uses bacon. Check it out for you self below.
