Since KFC released their Double Down sandwich, I’ve had a hankering to sample the sandwich that’s proclaimed to be “so meaty, there’s no room for a bun!” Sporting two thick and juicy boneless white meat chicken filets, two pieces of bacon, two melted slices of Monterey Jack and pepper jack cheese and Colonel’s Sauce, I have high hopes that this meal will fit nicely into my meatatarian lifestyle!

For the first time in a very long time, my wife and I both had free schedules the other weekend. Our way of relaxing is taking a trip to the local farmers market and gourmet meat shop to hand pick the ingredients for a fine meal. As soon as we laid eyes on the fresh lobster tails resting on a bed of crushed ice in the seafood cooler, we knew that a hearty surf and turf dinner was in our immediate future.

Over the last year and half we’ve been working non-stop on developing our first cookbook “BBQ Makes Everything Better“. All those sleepless nights are about to pay off as we’re quickly approaching May 4th, the official release date for our first book.
Now don’t go thinking that this is your standard grilling or smoking “how-to” cookbook. We do include the tips and techniques that every backyard cook should posses, but our focus in on creating delicious, mouth-watering meals through simple and easy-to-follow recipes. These are the dishes we’ve cooked for our friends and families for years, and now we’re thrilled to finally share them with you!

Last weekend we spent Saturday afternoon out at a local barbecue supply store offering up Bacon Explosion samples to the hoards of people loading up brand new grills and smokers for this year’s barbecue season. Next to us was a gentleman churning out wood fired pizzas on a trusty Big Green Egg. It didn’t take long before we sent over a couple hand fulls of Bacon Explosion and a bottle of Burnt Finger BBQ sauce. The results were GLORIOUS!!!

Every so often we like to take a day off work and relax with friends and family. This time around we headed out to Kauffman Stadium to celebrate Opening Day with the Kansas City Royals. In true BBQ Addicts style, we loaded up the Weber Kettle for some recreational pre-game Bacon Explosion tailgating in the parking lot. As we were sitting around the grill sipping on some Iron City Brew, an anchorman from a local news station caught a whiff of sizzling bacon in the air and wandered over with his camera man to investigate.

The “Periclean Age of Bacon” has arrived. Last night bacon was featured on ABC’s Nightline, and of course there can’t be a story about bacon without the Bacon Explosion being involved. We got a brief mention and a taste test from Josh Ozersky, who seems a bit hardcore about his bacon (even though he wrote a book on hamburgers). Apparently he thinks two pounds of bacon isn’t enough when there is a different kind of pork near it, but to each his own. Interesting piece all around with the main point being BACON IS HERE TO STAY!
(Please be patient, it takes a minute for ABC to load their video player)

This past weekend our competition team, Burnt Finger BBQ, took to the road to compete in North Little Rock, AR at the Smoke on the Water barbecue contest. With a guaranteed prize pool of $100,000.00, the world’s richest barbecue contest drew many of the top teams from across the country, including a few of those familiar faces recently featured on TLC’s recent hit TV show BBQ Pitmasters.

A couple days ago we got another bacon creation in our inbox. Ben “Sweet Lou” Krout is at it again (this might be turning into an obsession for him, but we love it)! If you remember, he created the profound and deeply mesmerizing Bacon Lombardi Trophy. Now, in honor of March Madness this year, we present you the NCAA Bacon Bracket!

This year’s Super Bowl brought a wave of party pics flowing into our inbox. People all over the world were feasting on our pre-cooked Bacon Explosion, or even smoking up a homemade version of their own. While we always have a blast looking through the fan photos, one particular reader’s photos stood out from the crowd. Not only were these guys rocking a Bacon Explosion at their Super Bowl party, they also sculpted a meat version of the most prestigious award in all of professional sports…the Bacombardi Trophy!
