Grilled and Smoked Bacon WeaveSince moving to Chicago many, many years ago, my buddies and I have held a bacon themed party each year that we called Baconfest. Foolishly we never trademarked that name (or at least grab the domain name) and the Baconfest brand has been commercialized into an annual festival.
Regardless, we still hold our little party each year, where the main event is a contest for the best bacon themed recipe.
When thinking about my entry for the 2009 Baconfest, I remembered there was a viral article from the New York Times about something called the Bacon Explosion that involved a lot of bacon, a variety of other meats and was then rolled up in a tight weave. This definitely sounded like a winner.
This proved to be a great way to grill bacon, smoke bacon and generally make bacon even more awesome.
