Re: Bacon Foil

Wait a minute...

How's this...genetically-engineered swine that are already precooked bacon? People cringe at the idea of an Island of Dr. Moreau, but if it were crawling with pre-cooked pigs that smell wonderful you'd change your minds awfully fast.

You just invented something that already exists, sorry. Kinda.

In Vitro Meat

Get used to the idea.

Re: Bacon Foil

To be honest it DOES sound like a good idea and I'm sure I could think of numerous good ways to do it. The first idea that comes to mind is a thin sheet of flavorless gelatin that's been exposed to smoke and treated with the same seasonings and flavors bacon is cured with, the gelatin is exposed to this while in a liquid state where it is then spread out very thin, allowed to set, and that should leave you with a substance that has a taste similar to bacon but is also not perishable, not a meat product (thus the rising costs of pork bellies would not be an issue) could serve the purposes of being a barrier for cooking and the only "flavor" it would inject into the cooking food if it liquefies during cooking would be the bacon-like flavor of it. Though the gelatin would likely make some impact on the texture and consistency of the food. This certainly wouldn't work for things like cookies.

Unless it's possible to make the bacon-gelatin to withstand fairly low oven temps and still remain in a gel state but not so much so as to not give up the bacon-like flavors.

Re: Bacon Foil

In vitro meat or vat-grown meat or some other kind of artificial meat is fine with me, as long as it's "close enough" to the original flavor and doesn't cost a fortune.

Re: Bacon Foil

Mr Silver, this is an argument you can't win. People who like bacon really like bacon.

It's an 'agree to disagree' moment, let it go.

Re: Bacon Foil

Bacon is so incredible it might very well have the power to propel an experimental spacecraft beyond the light barrier. Screw a controlled and channeled matter-antimatter annihilation...strips of crispy bacon will be the fuel that will take mankind into deep space. Countless swine would give their lives, but to advance the human species to the stars and give us awesome breakfasts and snacks along the way?

Totally worth it.

If that were so We'd never get deep into space! -find me one man that won't eat his bacon but instead put it in the tank!

Re: Bacon Foil

I'd let NASA have any leftover bacon that managed to drop down to room temperature...but only after I took a bite out of each strip.

Re: Bacon Foil

But in a universe where bacon was the equivalent to anti-matter in ours, Scotty would be Jabba the Hutt-fat and his catchphrase would be something like: "I cannae change the appetites of man cap'n!".

Re: Bacon Foil

I forgot to mention that I had a big plate of cheese fries last night...and they had bacon sprinkled on and spread throughout them. Thick, hot, stringy cheese. Steak fries. Chunks of fresh bacon. It was a snackgasm.
