There’s No Such Thing As Too Much Bacon!

On Saturday, February 27th, 600 lucky ticket holders will convene and pig out on 1000 pounds of bacon. 1000 pounds! That’s half a ton! While I’m sad that I’m not attending (nor will I get to participate in the bacon-eating contest, which I’ve honestly been inadvertently training for my whole life), I am glad that 600 fellow bacon lovers will be getting together and masticating on tasty pork products. Mmmm. Masticating.

Buying Great Bacon

A few weeks ago while at my local farmer’s market, I had just about finished all my produce shopping when I stopped by the Prather Ranch stall to off-set all those healthy purchases. They’re known for having great meat, and I’m a huge fan of their bacon. Not too smoky, cut just right. Usually I just grab whatever package of…

Envelopes and Popcorn? You guessed it, Bacon just got better

While our love for bacon runs both true and deep, we realize it isn’t entirely feasible to enjoy the savory taste of bacon much more beyond traditional mealtimes. Breakfast is taken care of, lunch can be a BLT, and salty pig parts have been making their way to the dinner table for awhile now. But we want more. We want…

Happy Thanksgiving. No, make that Happier Thanksgiving

It’s that time of year, when there’s a distinct crispness in the air, when nights are getting longer and days are getting colder and suddenly it seems every baked good and filled ravioli has pumpkin in it. And depending on your own family dynamic you’re met either with a sense of comfort or deep foreboding at the upcoming Holiday Season.

Bacon Meets Bitter

Brussels Sprouts. Lima Beans. Kale. They’re fodder for sit-com dinnertimes, for feeding under the table to the family dog, for initiating conversations about starving children around the world. They’re bad veggie clichés and we’re supposed to hate them. Someone admitting a fondness for these reviled veggies might as well admit “Tax time is my favorite time of year,” or  “I…

Masterbacon Wrap-up

Yesterday had to be one of the most fun events I’ve ever been involved with. I’m sure this had a lot to do with the fact that it was about one of my favorite things (bacon) but I think the key to it all was the amazing people that turned out.

Zivio had the run of the place

Masterbacon was a tremendous success by all accounts (IMHO). 32…

The first thing we need to update folks on is the venue change. We’ll be holding Masterbacon at the Davis Street Tavern in Old town. This is a great new venue just 3 doors down from Backspace. I’ve updated…

The Trash Can Bacon-Wrapped Turkey: A Holiday Favorite!

BaconturkeyDuring the holiday season our thoughts at BaconGeek.Com often turn to extreme cooking hijinks. Many of our favorite all-time culinary endeavors involve ensconcing meat with a material near and dear to our hearts (in more ways than one). What better way to baste the holiday bird than with a blanket of Bacon. Whether it be a “Standard” oven broiled Turkey…
