Wakey, Wakey…

who wants bakey?

This is a oldie but a goody but as this blog is new and the 10′s of my readers may have never seen this..I give you the Bacon Alarm Clock aka “Wake n’ Bacon


It’s your standard, everyday digital alarm clock THAT MAKES BACON!!

Frozen bacon goes in the night before and begins to cook 10 minutes before your alarm goes off. So the gentle aroma of bacon helps great your day.  When the alarm does go off, just reach over and pull out the tray to reveal a tasty strip or two. Is there a better way to start a morning? (yes, there are some, but this is a family blog…so removing all of those…this is the best way to wake up!).

2010 – Year of Bacon?!?


So J. Walter Thompson, agency of record for Nestle, Kraft and Kellogg, just listed their top 5 food trends for 2010 and guess what tasty meat made the list…

Bacon is no longer just for BLT sandwiches: The pork product is showing up in cocktails made with bacon-infused liquor or the new Bakon Vodka. It’s also in desserts such as bacon-and-egg ice cream and chocolate bars.

Welcome to the party.  As with my post last week about bacon appearing in promotional / ad work for other companies…when agencies get around to “recognizing” the fad, you may already be on the down side of popularity.  Sorry bacon, you’ve become (GASP) mainstream.

But don’t worry baby…I will ALWAYS love you ;-)

The rest of the list: organic fast food, wine cocktails, health-claim backlash and sardines.  Yes, they called sardines the tuna of 2010 (good luck with that).

BTV – John Hamm on SNL…

From last night’s Saturday Night Live

“If you enjoy cozy atmosphere, excellent service and healthy servings of pig meat accompanied by sparkling wines…”

It was a good sketch, but not quite as good as his previous effort…

“Mmmm, that’s good ham!”

All and all not a bad episode last night, a few good spots and a solid “Weekend Update“…but John Hamm is quickly becoming a solid go-to guy for SNL.

Bacon, the “Meat of Life”…

It’s been a long week!  I’ve been so busy that I had no chance to read any of my daily nerd blogs unitil this morning.  I’m so glad I took the time to catch up or I would have missed this…

Click this link to see the chart in all 2000px wide meatness.

Notice bacon is element numero uno!  As the chart points out:

Bacon is the “meat of life”.  Without bacon life on earth as we know it would not exist.

No arguements from me.  I mean come on, the blog’s called “The Daily Bacon“, not “The Daily Pigs Feet“.

Truth in Advertising…

This is a billboard for Ranfurly Frontier Lager in New Zealand.  The concept is that in the near future real men are close to extinction.  The very last of these men now reside in the Ranfurly Man Park where they are once again free to live the rest of their days “as nature intended”.

I’m not feeling the overall campaign concept and execution, but I must admit that truer words have never appeared on any billboard I have ever seen.

Makin’ Bacon – Smithfield

Part two of our continuing search for good “over the counter” packaged bacon!  Today it’s Smithfield Naturally Hickory Smoked.

This is actually the brand that we seem to eat the most at the Baird household, usually you can get it on sale at one of the grocery stores or at least for a pretty decent everyday price.

This standard 16oz. package yielded 14 good slices.  There was a 15th, but it was so paper thin that I just chucked it.


Color was real good, a little fatty but I still thought it had a fairly good meat/fat ratio.

Bacon was split onto two foil lined sheets and each cooked separately at 425 for 12 minutes.


Look at that!!  Really held it’s shape well, not a lot of shrinkage.  There was a really nice aroma to the house as these things baked up.

They cooked really even (except for that one little spot on the top of slice 6) and had a nice crunch with the first bite, but didn’t crumble.  There wasn’t that much of a smoked taste to the meat and was actually a little sweet.

This held up real well as my breakfast side and on a sandwich later.  Smithfield, you made a good little bacon!

I give you…Eight PIGGIES EATING BACON!  Next time you are on sale, you’ll be in my cart!
