The last Saturday before Labor Day is almost upon us, which means we’re getting close to the porkiest holiday the world has to offer. For those not in the know, I’m talking about International Bacon Day. It’s the one day a year that the citizens of Earth put aside their differences and bask in the glory of the world’s most perfect food. Okay, so maybe it’s not quite to that level yet, but you can certainly do your part by partaking in a bacon feast…and score some free bacon schwag for doing so!!!

Cooking up a barbecue feast for your friends and family can (and will) be an all day affair. Depending on the size of your cut, briskets and pork butts can take every bit of 18 hours to slow smoke to perfection. As much as I like starving myself all day in anticipation of the gluttony that’s soon to come, my willpower tends to falter somewhere around the noon hour. Since the smoker is already chugging away, there’s no need to power up the oven for that well deserved mid-day snack. Instead, I prefer to toss in a few stuffed jalapeno peppers…especially the ones dubbed “Atomic Buffalo Turds”!!!
