But would it work on cardboard pork buns?

As loyal Friends of the Blog know, I’m a big fan of barbecue. Love to cook it. Love to eat it. Love to argue with unnecessary pretension about where the best places are to buy it.

So you may be shocked to hear that I may have discovered—courtesy of the kind, if somewhat deranged, folks at phog.net—a food item that could top the bestest barbecuedest rib you’ve ever tasted.

I speak, of course, of bacon in a can.

Not bacon bits. Not ground-up pieces of bacon-flavored product designed to make your salad crunchy and your cholesterol coagulated. But a magical topping called Bacon Salt that will turn anything it touches into… well… bacon. Or at least bacon-flavored food.

Consider the uses:

-Bacon-flavored toast
-Bacon-flavored popcorn
-Bacon-flavored steak
-Bacon-flavored barbecue
-And, because I know you were thinking it, bacon-flavored bacon

This could revolutionize our lives, just like the Space Shuttle and sneakers with little roller skates in the heel. Head over to the inventors’ Web site and buy yourself a case. You have no excuses: It has no calories, is vegetarian and even certified kosher.

Now, if you’ll excuse me, I need to go work on my recipe for a Bacon Salt bloody mary.

That reminds me of the add for Beggin' Strips a couple of years ago:

"BACON! My favorite!!!!"

"I can't read!!!!"

It reminded me so much of my dearly departed dog. Sniff.

When my friends first told me of the idea itself, I was amazed. Since then, I have been searching to find a word to describe how I felt when the bacon salt first hit my tongue.

Really... unbelievable. So delicious.

The Bacon Salt Bloody Mary - OMG!

Genius. Pure genius.

As a current and former coworker of J&D (J - currently, and D-formerly), I had the opportunity to feast at the Bacon Salt kickoff BBQ. I tried it on everything...and it is true, everything was better - Ice Cream included.

Buy it. Love it. The revolution has begun!

Let's just say, I eat my vegetables now... it's that good.

Bacon Salt tastes great on so many things. It's fun to try with all kinds of different foods. Trust me, you'll find some things that you just can't have without some BS! I even tried it in beer and loved it.

Eggs and Potatoes are a no brainer.

It's $5, go online and get some... you'll be glad you did.

Seriously? Bacon Salt? What a freakin great idea! I'm thinking corn on the cob with bacon salt would be amazing!

Nice find - I think you hit a nerve there with that one!

I'm a seasoned cook, one who profoundly appreciates bacon not only as a delicious food, but its fat, when rendered, is one of the best cooking mediums known to man. I can't seem to find out what bacon salt actually is made of. Strange that the website won't even toss off a quick 'secret combination of spices'-etc. Odd. But perhaps they're banking on the Homer Simpson in all of us--"Bacon..Salt...Aaaaaccchghgh (drool)"
