No stinkin’ diet needed with ‘Bacon Explosion’

Going through old e-mail messages can be rewarding. For example, I was introduced to the meaty goodness that is the Bacon Explosion.
The New York Times delved into the creation and publicity of the 4-pound roll of bacon and sausage. Apparently, the product has caught the eyes of many Web surfers and it has drawn people to, the Web site of the Burnt Finger BBQ team.
Several people have pointed to the Explosion as an example of gastronomical excess, but I don’t think it’s too outside the box. The amount of meat involved seems excessive, but I think I used nearly that much for my Super Bowl chili last year.
At the same time, I can practically feel the artery-clogging poundage that would come from a slice.
