As if we need any more reason to love all things pork-related, Hormel has come up with a new way for people to experience bacon. It’s called the Black Market, and it offers a virtual reality environment where customers can explore dark, Dali-inspired spaces that...
Ok, I've got a new obsession.
Remember how, in the last few years, all sorts of restaurants and chefs and food chains started putting bacon in, well, everything? And we all enjoyed bacon in our sundaes, and bacon on every sandwich, and bacon for breakfast, lunch,...
So Thanksgiving is here, and I have just one question: where the hell did this year go? No, seriously, holiday stuff already? Are you kidding me, 2012?!
Anyways, we can't fight it, so we might as well embrace it, right? Epic Meal Time rocks my socks off, and they love bacon, so we're totally BFFs forever in another life. I found a video they did of an epic Bacon Thanksgiving that is just AMAZING!
It got me thinking, too. The TurDucken is popular nowadays, right? The chicken, cooked inside the duck, cooked inside the turkey is a staple at a ton of Thanksgiving feasts.
Well... what if that TurDucken was inside a PIG?! Call it a PigTurDucken and make it amazing! You could cook the chicken, inside the duck, inside the turkey, inside the pig, and have the best Thanksgiving you could ever imagine.

So for all you worried pork lovers out there, that European study released this summer was wrong; we are not facing a complete pork shortage and we will not stop selling pork in the next few months. Quite the opposite will take place, in fact.
However, all is not well in the land of pork. There's a serious drought happening in America right now, and while there won't be a bacon shortage, prices of bacon and pork products are going to rise pretty substantially in the next year, perhaps by as much as ten percent.
CNN brings up a valid question in this article: Does it always have to be turkey for Thanksgiving? One chef had an idea to make an appetizer pig with bacon, pork, and sausages. Peruse the pics and I think you’ll agree that the idea is...
