Totally off subject (though I’m gonna seriously try Bacon Jam,) you and this site have been my salvation since the recent election. My Sat Radio failed me in the two or three weeks prior to the elections; I was forced to endure talk radio and talk radio and Woo-woo radio till they found a new satellite. I turned to you to help me keep my sanity and you didn’t let me down! Now, I can be CRAZY with all these other CRAZIES! We can plot Bacon Jam and government overthrow, and never miss a beat!

And, if you want to mow down hunnerts of starvin Proggiebots, use smoked and peppered bacon from New Braunsfal, Texas or the same from Virginia, which you can get in 3 pound cured slabs! They make *store bought* bacon seem like buyin vibram soles!!!!
The SMELL is wot will attract the P-bots (…even the vegans…)—-thus providing a field of fire downwind—– that would serve as justifiable home defense; specially when the coroner`s reports leans, by dint of clothes, tattoos, embedded metal on faces & genitals—combined w police records,—-toward the dead being the protaginists……….
APO, you may axe Headmissey bout the accuracy of my hypothesis, as I jist sent her a mess of both smoke cured bacon, Canadian Bacon & Corgi bits to knaw on…………….

I buy all my bacon as smoked ends & pieces from the local butcher, Colonel. Cheap and great for puttin’ in beans. But that slab does sound awful good.
I figure either would do right by this recipe. I can’t wait to try it on a burger!

I scan the internet for food porn. This post is one of the best ever.
… we began a very unhealthy morning routine: eat a slice of bacon, try a version of Baconnaise, eat a slice of bacon. Compare. Improve. Repeat. Over the 6 months it took us to make Baconnaise, we estimate that we probably ate 20 pounds of bacon, consumed 5 large jars of mayonnaise and took 2 years off of our lives – looking for that exact and delicious flavor that we would be proud to call Baconnaise.
Now I just have to figger out how where to find a damn pressure canner that’ll work on one of those fancy induction stovetops so I can put some of this stuff up in the pantry for after the apocalypse.

I like to mix bacon drippings and butter in a 50/50 mix. It wonderful to fry leftover turkey lightly seasoned with lawry’s seasoning salt. Take 2 slices of dressing toasted and spread with cranberry sauce and make a sandwich with it all.
This here’s mooslimbane. Spread this shit all over you and not only will it drive off allah-peanut-butter-sandwiches, but the ladies will go wild for ya.

^ Thanks Apotheosis, but I already got my hands full in the ladies department. Ever since I moved into this apartment dealie for old people who still aren’t quite ready for ‘The Ranch’, I realized that I’m outnumbered by about 12-1. Make that 14-1.
It’s not entirely without its benefits. They make me soup, and stuff.
One of them even has an old Basset Hound that mourns and howls whenever she’s gone, and even when she’s still here. His name is Zorba. Me and Zorba co-miserate and share smoked ham together. Oy.
You should be able to hear him on my next album, if I live that long. I’m still trying to get my lawyer to figure-out how to pay royalties to a Basset Hound.
