We have an exciting event coming up this Saturday at the Webster House in the historic Crossroads District here in Kansas City. We have the honor of being the featured guests for an evening of barbecue and will be sampling recipes out of our BBQ book, BBQ Makes Everything Better. Also on hand will be Excuetive Chef Charles d’Ablaing demonstrating grilling recipes and techniques and Darcy Rasmussen, the pastry chef, will be showing off great desserts for the grill! They will also be showcasing the latest equipment from Wolf Grills and Sub Zero refrigeration. A great event for the whole family, and a super way to treat Dad to a special afternoon.

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!

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)

But before we talk business, we recently received an email from a few Bacon Explosion fans in Northern Jersey who were putting together a Bacon Explosion eating challenge, complete with a photographer to capture all the porky details. From the second we received the email, we had our fingers crossed that the pics would reveal snapshots of Snooki and “The Situation” going head-to-head in a bacon-sausage throwdown. Although the Jersey Shore dreams didn’t quite pan out, we did receive some great images of a true Bacon Explosion fan giving his all to prove his friends wrong.

Calling all procrastinators! The last few days to buy Christmas gifts on the internet are screaming by at lightning speeds. If you wait too much longer, then you’ll be forced to leave the cozy confines of your home and venture out into the retail sea of craziness. So to avoid any confusion and/or disappoinment for the BBQ Addict in your life, we’re publicly declaring that all Bacon Explosion orders must be received by 1:00 pm Central time on Monday, December 21st, for us to guarantee delivery in time for Christmas. Although if you’re a fellow midwesterner, then you may be able to squeak out another day or two.

It’s no secret that our blog has been awkwardly quiet for the last couple of months. It pained us to do so, but we took some time off from writing on the internet to spend some extra time fine-tuning our upcoming book. Yes, that’s right…the cookbook that made headlines on Entertainment Weekly has been officially sent to the printers! We’ll keep you posted on all the smoky details as we get closer to the release of BBQ Makes Everything Better, but in the meantime we’re celebrating our return to the blogosphere the only way we know how….with FREE BACON!!!
