Bacon Alarm Clock

Posted in Meat Devices, STUFF ABOUT MEAT with tags , , on September 5, 2008 by chomposaurus

Let’s take a moment to appreciate the excellent blog Crispy on the Outside’s “This Week in Bacon” feature, always worth a read for those who don’t get enough fried pork product. I especially enjoyed the Bacon Alarm Clock, which takes Michael Scott’s idea from The Office (grilling bacon in a foreman by his bed while he snoozes) to a better, safer level.

Michael Scott:

I enjoy having breakfast in bed. I like waking up to the smell of bacon —– sue me — and since I don’t have a butler, I have to do it myself. So most nights before I go to bed I will lay six strips of bacon out on my George Foreman Grill. Then I go to sleep. When I wake up, I plug in the grill. I go back to sleep again. Then I wake up to the smell of crackling bacon. It is delicious. It’s good for me. It’s the perfect way to start the day. Today I got up, I stepped onto the grill and it clamped down on my foot. That’s it. I don’t see what’s so hard to believe about that…

World-Renowned Burger Expert George Motz has a blog, a book and a film about the hamburger, America’s favorite food. If you want to learn an insane amount about burgers, check it out. It’s an invaluable resource for the burger adventurer in you.

Also, did anyone else know Wednesday was “National Hamburger Day”? Why wasn’t that on my World Wildlife Fund desk calendar?

Meatsites: Roadfood, Your Guide to Cheap Meat U.S.A.

Posted in Fast Food with tags , , on May 1, 2008 by chomposaurus

Roadfood [ ] is, quite simply, the best restaurant review site on the net. The editors, Jan & Michael Stern, have been traveling the country for decades to find the best diners, crab shacks, chili huts and burger joints there are. The site organizes restaurants by geographic area, with easy to read google maps, to let you know where the nearest quality cheap meat is.

Of course, I also recommend the book that the site is based on – an essential backseat item for any roadtrip.

You cannot put a dollar value on a reference site that tells you wear to get the best pork chop sandwich in Butte, Montana or a pile of creamed chipped beef in Delaware. If you are a person that travels at all, this site will change your world.

Our little blog here does travel to such places, but our goal is to expose you to new ways of serving, eating and enjoying meat, not to become a comprehensive restaurant guide. So that’s why we like places like Roadfood.
