Wanna hear something totally messed up? People always rave about how awesome bacon is.....Yet I seriously have had a gag reflex to the stuff for as long as I can remember.

The smell of it makes me want to hurl.
Tried it when I was a kid and didn't like it. Won't try it again because I can't get passed the smell without feeling completely nauseated.

Weird right?

I gotta be one of the few guys that don't get it up for bacon.
It's probably my least favourite food coming off of a pig.

It's good and all, but so is ham.
So are chops, sausages... pig's feet...

I've never tried pig's feet nor do I know if they are actually related.

I have some baconnaise but I'm sort of afraid to try it. It seems like I would just immediately have a heart attack. However, I will start eating it if bacon becomes scarce

I believe that's the quote anyways. Bacon-wrapped tenderloins mmmm...just a side of bacon with pancakes for breakfast even puts a smile on my face.

A tapas I got used to in Spain was datiles con bacon (bacon wrapped dates). It's like eating candied bacon. So easy to make and it goes great with most types of beer.

My wife makes these delicious baked goat cheese stuffed dates wrapped in prosciutto (bacon's fancy italian cousin) that are SOOOOO good. :wub:

in hamburgers


Indeed I get my butcher to grind lean sirloin and garlic bacon together...Mmmmm. Next step is to add some lamb in there too :towel:

Thanksgiving is coming...

The first time it went to Thanksgiving dinner at one of my old GF's parent's house, they asked me if it would be ok to give the bacon that had cooked on the turkey to my dog. I looked at them for a few seconds before picking up my jaw and saying, "Hell no, give it to me if none of you want it!"

I don't mind bacon made from turkeys, but when I hear 'turkey bacon' I think of the above picture.

I don't like the smell of bacon either. I can't be in the kitchen when someone is cooking bacon.

I'm bacon's biggest fan, but that's too much even for me.

No such thing as 'extra' bacon...only insufficient amounts of bacon and the adding of bacon in order to correct that initial error.

Pork Shortage Causes Major League Eating To Suspend All Bacon-Eating Contests



This pork shortage is bacon us crazy.

With a global bacon shortage deemed "unavoidable" by experts, Major League Eating announced it will suspend all bacon eating contests.

In a news release sent to The Huffington Post, MLE president Richard Shea said calling off the competitions was the right thing to do.

"We cannot, in good conscience, allow [top ranked eater] Joey Chestnut to eat bacon during a global pork shortage,” Shea said in the release. “We estimate that Joey alone could eat 20 pounds of bacon in 10 minutes of competition.”

The release also says MLE is encouraging its competitors to avoid bacon in their daily meals.

The one exception to the no-bacon rule is a bacon-wrapped-scallop-eating contest, since they are "really delicious" and "mostly scallop anyway," according to Shea.

Competitive eating fanatics need not lose all hope. There will still be a National Pancake Eating Championship on September 29 in Louisville.
