I know, old thread, shouldn't resurrect a dead thread like this, but I wanted to tell someone that I've learned to make my own bacon this year and it's easy and makes all regular bacon seem like an empty imitation of what bacon should be.

I don't know what I would do if my religion banned bacon, it's such a vital part of my day.

Rev. Frank (who is registered here now and will no doubt post some day) and I came up with something we call "Kevin's Law", which is relevant to this topic.

Kevin's law states:
Any food with bacon on it is automatically superior to the same food without bacon on it.

So far we've not encountered any known examples of a food that doesn't comply with Kevin's Law. Denny's even has Baconalia going on featuring ice cream sundaes with bacon in them (which is awesome) and other oddities, and the fair even had bacon dipped in chocolate which was awesome too.

Bacon pretty much rules.
I can see the fnords.

Hmm. Potential exceptions to Kevin's Law:
Pineapple Upside-Down Cake
Frosted Flakes cereal
coffee
whiskey
mudslide fudge

There may be other possibilities, but I can't think of them.

Now for the experimental phase. this may take a while.

Well, I think bacon would be awesome on pineapple upside down cake and mudslide fudge. Frosted flakes, that might require a test. Coffee is nasty anyway unless you put a bunch of flavors and sugar and cream and such in it, and at that point, bacon would probably be awesome too. I don't know about whiskey but I saw a bacon maple flavored beer in the store the other day so would be interested to see how well bacon goes with whiskey (imagine dipping strips in a shot glass of nice whiskey).

The only thing we could think of right off that bacon might not go with is Jello, but I haven't tried it for fear that I'd break the law.

I'm with you though - with any suspected exceptions to Kevin's Law, the fun will be in the validation experiments.

lol moss. No, it's the smoke (as in from fire) interacting with the meat as opposed to liquid chemical smoke that is more common these days. Fire smoke be the way our Pirate forefathers use to do it.

OK, then we can safely remove whiskey from the list. A friend of mine up the road is in the final stages of receiving a state license to produce and sell maple whiskey. If maple goes with bacon, and maple goes with whiskey (I've sampled the stuff - trust me, you want some) then bacon goes with whiskey. It's some kind of mathematical law or something.

Um, yeah, I definitely want some maple whiskey - nom nom. And I think you're right -- somehow I think the commutative property would prove that if maple goes with a food and bacon goes with maple then bacon goes with that food. This would be some sort of corollary to Kevin's Law I think.

Dammit, now I want some maple whiskey, pancakes and bacon.

The version I sampled was around 160 proof, but the market version will only be 140. Some kind of legal issue. I expect it to hit the streets within the next few months - I'll keep you posted.

Sounds yummy - but stiff. I have had 195 proof (pretty much azeotrope) and that stuff will dry your mouth out so bad it feels like a burn (very hygroscopic obviously). 140 proof isn't too terribly far behind that. A maple whiskey just sounds awesome though...

Really? I quite like it. Amazing what you can do with a distillation setup :idiot:

It works well if you're going camping as you can condense two bottles of vodka down into one and, should you happen to give it to someone without telling them what it is, they get amusingly drunk very quickly :evilgrin:
