If there is one thing I love its other bacon lovers. I had a chance to talk with Jason Jackson, founder and proprietor of thepignextdoor.com. I’m BaconGeek (BG) and he’s ThePigNextDoor (TPND):

The Bacon of the Month Club from thepignextdoor.com

I’m pleased to announce (with an insane amount of help from the Rick Turoczy, the Silicon Florist) the launch of Bacn.me for all of your bacon-related URL-shortening needs. Yes, you can all breath a sigh of…

Update: Bacon Rating System

Based on some fantastic feedback from @ryansnyder I’ve made a few updates to the Bacon Rating System.

The first addition is the “Value per Pound” for bacon. This was inspired by wine reviewers; they often give you a value-per-bottle so you know if you’re getting a good “value” for your money.
