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!

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.

Yesterday we busted out our grilling skills to create a burger worthy of a Pittsburgh sized appetite. But as we turn our attention to Arizona for the second half of our Super Bowl feature, we’ll be shifting our culinary skills in a different direction to bring you the Anquan BREAD BOWL-din SOUP. Okay, if you’re a BBQ lover then a cup of soup may not be your cup of tea. Well, what if I told you this soup was actually a thick and hearty chowder?!?! Still not convinced huh…did I mention this chowder’s main ingredients are flame grilled corn cobs and smoke roasted chicken breasts? Yeah, I thought that would get your attention!

It’s taken a full week, but I’ve finally managed to dig myself out from under the mountain of hate mail I received from posting a vegetable recipe on our BBQ site. Well, we’ve heard your complaints and now we’re firing back with a Super Bowl themed recipe that’s sure to satisfy your carnivorous tendencies.
When Ben Roethlisberger burst onto the NFL scene in his rookie season, local Pittsburgh restaurant Peppi’s Old Tyme Sandwich Shop anointed him with the highest honor a young athlete can receive…his own personal sandwich. By pulling inspiration from Big Ben’s physical prowess and on-field abilities, the guys at Peppi’s came up with a unique blend of beef, sausage, eggs, cheese and onions to represent their young stud. Here we are a few years later and Mr. Roethlisberger has once again led his team into the biggest game of the year. To honor their accomplishment, we’re paying tribute to the Steel Curtain by constructing this new found Pittsburgh classic…with a few slight modifications!
