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:
-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.
