Fan smuggles Pig into Gabba

Fan smuggles Pig into Gabba - It is all happening down in Australia at the first Ashes Test match.
An Australian man has been charged with animal cruelty after trying to smuggle a Pig into the Gabba cricket ground!
What the hell is he going to do with a Pig at a cricket match?

He tried to wrap the Pig in a towel and had placed it in a baby harness - like it was his newborn son! This is crazy!

The full story can be read over at News24.

If Pigs could fly

I bet their wings would taste fantastic!

Bacon Braai Mielies

A Braai is a BBQ and a Mielie is corn on the cob. This is a South African recipe sent in by @toughtash from the Robertsons Herbs and Spices Facebook Page.
Essentially it looks to be wrapping a mielie in Bacon and braaiing it.
Ok for those foreigners out there (most of you) - wrap some corn on the cob in Bacon and put it on the BBQ for a little while. Comes out super tasty - but then what wouldn't when it's been wrapped in Bacon!

Bacon is going to save the world!

Edinburgh Man Jailed After Attacking Mosque Weilding Bacon

Attacking a mosque with a cured Pig carcass will get you 10 months in jail.
This is what happened to Edinburgh resident Wayne Stillwell, who wrapped the doors of the mosque with Pork and threw it into the mosque because "Muslims regard Bacon as unclean".

Clearly a strange situation. Read the full article here.

I tasted Bacon and could have told them that!

Shepherd's Thai - Epic Meal Time

Beach Pigs

Pigs on the beach with some eye candy to go with it.

Going through the archives I found this one, and realised there were a couple of others out there.
I wonder if it is the same Pig on the same beach?
Well turns out it just might be. There is a beach in the Bahama's called Pig Beach. Turns out a bunch of Pigs may have been dropped off by sailors many moons ago. They were hankering after some cooked Swine, so set the Pigs free on the island, planning to return to cook them. But they never returned.

This next one I saw on the Superficial's site.

Fake beef is Pork

While it makes sense that people are trying to convince us that Pork is actually beef, I don't like what they're putting in there!
Paraffin Wax has no place in my meat! But of course this happened in China - watch your meat out there people!

Check out the article here.

Thanks Tweeds.

Described as the music festival for food lovers or a food festival for music lovers that takes the combination of food and music based entertainment to the next level; Delicious is set to take the South African entertainment and culinary world by storm in Johannesburg the weekend of 5 and 6 October 2013.

Presented by DSTV in association with Checkers, Oceans Basket, The Sunday Times and Sowetan; South Africa’s first international food and music festival will bring world class talent to the Blue Hills Equestrian Estate as renowned UK celebrity chefs Aldo Zilli, Ed Baines and John Burton Race showcase their talents by bringing their signature pop up restaurants to the festival - Aldo Zilli’s San Carlo Cicchetti, Ed Baines’ Randal and Aubin, as well as John Burton Race’s The John Burton Race Experience.

There is no better band to headline the first Delicious International Food and Music Festival than Jamiroquai. With their signature mix of funk, jazz, disco and house and the combination of beautiful sunshine, delicious food and wine, there will be no better vibe to be had in Johannesburg this year.

The three international pop up restaurants, San Carlo Cicchetti, Randall & Aubin and The John Burton Race Experience will provide patrons with the opportunity to experience their fine cuisine first hand while enjoying the music from a raised position overlooking the crowd. These restaurants will take bookings for lunch and dinner sittings daily.

Delicious will cater for all budgets with a plethora of food options ranging from these three renowned pop up restaurants, a huge artisan food market (encompassing a vast array of African, European, pan Asian) and a line up of South African artists which will be announced soon.

Reservations for the pop-up restaurants can be made for lunch and/or dinner at a cost of R900, while general admission entry will cost R380. Child-friendly areas hosted by “DStv Kids” will be available so kids can be entertained while parents enjoy the festival – children under twelve years old will cost R100 with those under three no charge.

“Delicious is clearly something not seen before and I am excited to be a part of this project”, said John Burton Race.

Delicious will open daily at 12:00 and promises to be a fantastic and entertaining day out for the entire family.

Coppa di Testa

I recently started following a website about Cured Meats. It seems to be run by a chap in Atlanta, Georgia, and provides all the information someone will need to get going in the world of cured meats.
His latest blog describes how he obtained half a Pig, and then what he did with the Pigs head. Basically he made something called Coppa di Testa. I don't know what that is, but it seems to make use of the head and comes out as a kind of cold meat for sandwiches and the like. Looks good to me!

Detailed instructions on how to do this yourself are also included as well as some good pictures.

Definitely a blog worth following if you're wanting to learn more about the cured meats process.
Check out Cured Meats.

Bacon Playing cards and Poker Chips

A couple of weeks ago I mentioned Bacon Playing cards on Kickstarter.
Well they seem to be doing pretty well raising money - 10 days to go and they need another $7000 or so. So not too bad.
Well now they've also announced the Porky Poker Chips! So if you're going to contribute make sure you contribute enough to get some of these awesome chips!

I'll be honest. I have no idea what is going on here. And the fact that it is not a Japanese girl makes it even more confusing.

Any idea's?

Bacon Playing Cards

The guys who brought us the 23 Karat Gold Bacon now have started a Kickstarter project to raise money to create Bacon playing cards!
The Baconery have started the project to create Bacon playing cards and a game called "Bakin' with Bacon".
If you don't know, Kickstarter is a crowd sourced fund raising site. So anyone can go and try raise money for their project by giving away first editions or early releases etc to the people who fund them.
It's a pretty cool site with some great projects. Check it out - but only after checking out the Bacon Playing Cards!

Bacon Puzzle Tattoo

A Pig, plus meat cleaver, plus some fire equals some fine tasty Porky goodness!

Check out the tattoo some dude got to prove it - it's written down so it must be true!

Floor is Bacon

So apparently if the floor is made of Bacon one should dance a jig.

Makes sense.

Pork Pie Stamps

Mole sent this link through to check out how to make a Pork Pie Stamp using a laser cutter. I guess it's not really for the masses (yet) but I know a guy with a laser cutter so this could be a fun project sometime!

World Record Most Pulled Pork Eaten in 6 Minutes

Now this is an interesting one...there is a world record for the most pulled Pork eaten in 6 minutes.
Not 5 minutes.
Not 7 minutes.
But 6 minutes. I wonder how they came up with that number?
I wonder what the world record is for 5 minutes of eating pulled Pork? the video of Furious Pete eating it like bulldog eating porridge.

Making Bacon in the home

This is a pretty good video on how to make your own Bacon - I'm going to have to try this sometime...I really mean it this time!

Bacon American Flag

American flag made out of Bacon. That's about it. Not much more to say really.

Jihawg Ammo

So I noticed this on the web this morning. There is a company that seems to be a little miffed about something or other and have decided to take it out on their Muslim brothers. But only if they are trying to kill you in the name of a Jihad. If they're just trying to kill you cause they're bad people then this is not the product for you!

Basically they're coating their bullets in Pork infused paint. So they believe that if a fundamentalist Muslim is attacking you in the name of a Jihad, and you shoot them with your Jihawg Ammo, then they won't go to heaven with their 72 virgins, but instead straight to hell.
How much credibility there is in these claims, who knows. I'd have to actually read a religious book to tell you that - unless someone can tell me that themselves!

So check out the original article over at the Huffington Post - got to love it!

Don't change America. Don't change. The world loves you just the way you are!

Bacon Bacon Bacon on Vine

So there is this new video type site called Vine where people can upload 6 second video's. Not too sure what it's all about or why you need to watch (or share) 6 seconds of rubbish.
But anyway...this came to me...certainly a lot of mentions of Bacon in 6 seconds.

Too much Bacon

Don't let anyone ever tell you you've had too much Bacon. There is no place for such negativity in life!

Pigs stolen after Badplaas accident

Just read a story that is all too commonplace here in South Africa. After a lorry, carrying almost any cargo, is in an accident it seems that the local people around the area, especially if it is in a rural area, descend on the accident scene and start looting the goods.
All too often we see this with beer or fresh produce.

But this one was Pigs. A truck carrying 139 Pigs to the abattoir, to make some tasty Porky treats, overturned and the driver was serioulsy injured. The local NSPCA inspector was on teh scene and decided to euthanase 53 of the injured Pigs.

And then all chaos broke out "as if out of nowhere" the locals arrived and descended on the accident scene. Pigs were dragged off by the legs or just carried away.
As per usual in this country, the police stood by not wanting to get involved as it was not something they could control they said.

Sad times indeed. But at least these Pigs went to feed poor rural people in desperate need of more Bacon in the diet!

23k Gold Chocolate Bacon

Spotted this on UnCrate this morning. A 23k Gold Chocolate Bacon bar! It is covered with genuine edible gold leaf!
Now why someone would want to spend their money on that, I'm not sure. You could certainly buy a lot more Bacon with your money!

So can buy it at the Baconery - looks like it goes for US$199 and that is for a 6-pack of 23k gold chocolate Bacon!

Bacon Mistakes To Avoid: How To Cook Bacon

A few people have been asking me what is my best way to cook Bacon. I know how I do it, but everyone is different and likes their Bacon in different ways. Plus there are various ways in which you may be enjoying your Bacon - such as in a Mitch Morgan, or if wrapped around your eggs.

So I did a little looking around and found this article...while not being exactly how you should cook Bacon, it does mention some of the common pitfalls I see all too often in inexperienced Bacon cookers.
So take a look and hopefully this will be your first step towards better Bacon!
