The Canonical Bacon Page

It’s entirely my fault: I taped bacon to my cat a couple of years ago, thus apparently signaling to the whole of the Internet that what I really wanted to be was the guy to whom everything related to bacon was forwarded to. Indeed, there has emerged a “Scalzi’s Law,” which is a consonant variation of Godwin’s Law, and it goes as such:

Any conversation on the internet will eventually include bacon in some way. And then be forwarded immediately to John Scalzi.

Since it appears that “Scalzi’s Law” is indeed followed religiously by various and sundry, and I am daily inundated with e-mail and links about bacon, I’ve decided that what really needs to happen is a public repository of links to all things bacon — so that a) people passionately interested in bacon can find all the links they desire, and b) that people have something to check to see whether or not someone else has already informed me about whatever bacon-related thing they’re also thinking of sending me.

Thus: The Canonical Bacon Page, the place to go to post the bacon-related links you want me to know about — and also the place to be for the latest and greatest in bacon-related stuff online.

Here’s how it works:

1. You find something bacon-related on the Internet.

2. Rather than sending it to me in e-mail, you post it here in the comments.

3. The whole world basks in your superior bacon skillz.

It’s just that simple.

That said, to be sure you don’t “bogart the bacon” — and to make sure that your comment doesn’t get trapped in the moderation queue, I request that each comment be limited to one (1) bacon-related link. That is, one bacon-related item, picture, story, etc. Don’t just post a link to the Archie McPhee catalog; that’s lazy.

The fun and utility of this page will be entirely up to you, good bacon finders — it’s up to you to fill the comments with bacony goodness. I look forward to enjoying the hickory-smoke brilliance of your contributions.

So: What bacon-related links have you got to share with the class?

    Perhaps I could interest you in joining The Grateful Palate’s Bacon of the Month club: http://www.gratefulpalate.com/?p=Category_11

    Chris Onstand, creator of the webcome Achewood, was given a subscription by his wife and intermittently blogged the delicious results.

  2. Scalzi’s Law: the tastier, juicier, hot, crackly (except the bits of undercooked fat on the ends), succulent corollary to Godwin’s Law.

  3. Hmmm – you closed comments on the other page, so I had to come over here to say you used the wrong to/too in your post. See: “— or was planning too”

  4. Nothing like a hard-rocking, live music venue that has it’s own free bacon night. Yes baskets, like what fries are served in, but only bacon instead – free on Tuesdays. Buckets of bacon because nothing shows love of music like bacon . . . oh maybe dancing, but we bacon lovers don’t dance.

    Only in Minneapolis, so if you ever make your way to the Twin Cities, let me know.

  5. Old family breakfast dish from the hills.

    1lb bacon
    12 eggs
    1/2 lb ramps (cleaned, trimmed & chopped)

    Fry bacon in iron skillet til crisp, remove & set aside
    Toss in ramps followed by eggs
    Scramble egg/ramp mixture, toss in crumbled bacon
    Cook until firm
    Serve hot with salt & pepper
    (A sliced tomato is optional)

    Note: Due to pungent nature of ramp this dish is not recommended if you work around others inside.

  6. I like to surround myself with bacon so I make bacon products out of wood. I have a baconwood letter opener on my desk, a bacon-wrapped scallop box on my coffee table… well, you get the idea!
    http://www.baconwood.com
    Glad to see there are so many of us!!

  7. Bacontoday.com has updates every day. One of the best places to find your bacon news (besides internationalbaconday.blogspot.com of cource ;) )

  8. John,

    I have baconista.com, I think … Not sure if I renewed it or not. You can have it if you want it. I gave up on my idea for a google-based Bacon Map and Baconpedia after I had a heart attack a few months ago.

    Yours

    Joshua

    PS if you are John Scalzi the author, thanks for the great books, I’ve read the whole old man’s war series so far.

  9. The Not For Tourists (NFT) Guide reports that Chinaski’s in Chicago now has All You Can Eat Bacon Night.

    Chinaski’s
    Imagine sitting in a bar on a Monday night. You’re enjoying a beer with friends, and your waitress comes up to the table and asks, “I bring you some more bacon?” No, you’re not dreaming of an alternative universe where bacon is considered one of the four food groups, you’re in Chinaski’s for All You Can Eat Bacon Night. Named for a Charles Bukowski character, Chinaski’s is heavy on the lit theme: Sandwiches are named after famous authors and poets, and the bar features literary readings and open mike nights. Speaking of sandwiches, the list of burgers is not for the small appetite, with choices ranging from a burger with peanut butter to one topped with a corn dog, to one with chicken tacos. Be sure to get the tasty homemade chips topped with kosher salt and parmesan with your sandwich. Other specials include $10 bottles of wine on Fridays.

  10. The current “bacon” meme has been perplexing me for some time, because entirely coincidentally, my five-year-old daughter has developed an obsession with the word “bacon”. She shouts it out at random moments, with great enthusiasm, much to the bafflement of adults around her. (Her 1.8-yr-old sister is now copying her.) So I find myself wondering whether the meme managed to infect her like a virus!

    She’s actually quoting an episode of Veggie Tales:Lord of the Beans. Bacon has little to do with the story; the dwarf Grumpy (played by “Pa Grape”) is food-obsessed, and, when they’re trying to figure out the answer to the riddle at the Blue Gate, shouts “Bacon!” as his guess (and later suggests “with bacon!” when someone else gives their guess). He shouts it again during the closing credits. For some reason, this really stuck in my daughter’s mind.

    Apparently, if you are five, everything is better with bacon.

  11. So Alltop–an RSS aggregator–has created http://bacon.alltop.com/. Pretty much everything there should be linked to on here, shouldn’t it?

    For that matter, shouldn’t bacon.alltop link to everything on here?

    Wouldn’t that recursive linkbaiting end up clogging the tubes, like too much cholesterol from that Most Perfect Of Meats?

    John is lucky that I remembered about the Canonical Bacon page; I almost e-mailed him with this. I’m sure that there are others who already *have*!

  12. RE: Governor Palin and geography…

    OK, two can play that game. Obama-Biden supporters just put into the Vice-Presidency a 35-year veteran of the Senate who mentioned in an interview that FDR went on TV to address the public during the Great Depression!

    In others words, if (note the conditional) Sarah Palin needs some geography, Joe Biden most definitely needs a remedial lesson in history.

    Comforting to know our elected officials did so well in school, isn’t it?

  13. Hi John – We’re in some weird sort of alternate reality. Whenever something bacon-related comes up, people feel the urge to send it to you. And whenever we develop something bacon-related, we get reams of emails telling us to send it to you.

    So consider both of our jobs done:
    http://www.baconnaise.com

    – self-explanatory what it is.

  14. Last night I ate at Herwig’s Austrian Bistro, in State College, PA. I consider it to be the canonical bacon restaurant, and thus worthy of inclusion on this list twice. When you enter, you are greeted by a sign, “Welcome to Herwig’s, where bacon is an herb”, and the motto is also printed on tabletents. There are pigs and bacon-themed items everywhere in the restaurant.

    I had saurkraut (with bacon), potato salad (with bacon), and bratwurst (no bacon), followed by the chocolate bacon cheesecake I’ve already described here.

    Dinner was followed by Blue Oyster Cult, who also had no bacon but rocked nonetheless.

  15. Found the following looking for a receipe on kraft.com:

    The Bacon Community is Here!
    The wait is over! Bacon Lovers’ Talk, THE gathering place to connect with other bacon lovers, is now live! BLT is a community where you can share, discuss, and participate around all things bacon — recipes, techniques, and general bacon-ness. We know you’ve been waiting for this for a long time; it’s finally here.

    Warren Ellis’s internet church Whitechapel recently started a bacon thread. I posted a link to this page. the circle is complete.

    http://freakangels.com/whitechapel/comments.php?DiscussionID=4811&page=1

  18. John Scalzi did a brief blog post about Bacon Camp.
    After all, how can this page be canonical if it ignores a bacon-related post at a prominent blog like Whatever? The cost in recursiveness is small, I tell you, small!

    (I await the eventual link from The Canonical Bacon Page to The Canonical Bacon Page).

  19. Dihydrocodeinone enol acetate, an opiate similar to and derived from hydrocodone, is also called THEBACON.

    Final proof that bacon is addictive.

  20. I found this on boingboing and rushed here to show you. It’s about a guy who writes for Popular Science making a blowtorch out of proscuitto.

    I know, it’s not technically bacon, but can you really argue with a blowtorch made from flaming hot pig death?

    http://www.popsci.com/bacon

  21. I was going to bring up the Bacon Lance, but others have already done so. I just want to convey my delight at discovering that you have a page devoted to bacon-related contributions, and my admiration for your system.

    Not only is this page enormously convenient to ardent bacon lovers, but also I forsee that once it gets long enough, you can snip it off and make a book out of it.

    It amuses me that one of my work colleagues is Jono Bacon. We work for a company called Canonical.

    Ah, the weird meta-world that my brain is now inhabiting.

  23. crotchetyoldfan – The Crotchety Old Fan is Steve Davidson, also know as Rimworlder on many SF forums. Steve maintains the Rim Worlds Concordance project which is devoted to the works of A. Bertram Chandler and his most enduring character - Commodore John Grimes of the Rim Worlds Naval Reserve. Grimes is science fiction’s original ‘Horatio Hornblower of Space’. More information about Chandler, Grimes and the Rim Worlds can be found at www.rimworlds.com. Steve also maintains a visual index of volume 1, number 1 pulp science fiction magazines on the same website and is a devoted collector of the same. ‘I’m an ‘old’ SF fan, which you can take whichever way you like, as I love the old masters (Heinlein, Clarke, Asimov, E.F. Russell, Piper, Cordwainer Smith) and I’m well beyond the age you’re not supposed to trust anymore’. This blog is devoted to an investigation of the growing divide between ‘old’ - or ‘classic’ science fiction and the moderan literary genre that is currently sold under the same name. Steve has also begun writing reviews for www.SFReader.com, expects to be doing the same for www.SFSignal.com, and is contributing various non-fiction pieces to various other websites, all of them concerned with science fiction of one stripe or another. Early in 2008 he became completely disappointed with the SciFi Channel and created The Classic Science Fiction Channel website that gathers links to public domain radio, television, film and literary properties. Steve had a successful non-fiction writing career - writing articles and books dealing primarily with the paintball industry (Four books and several hundred articles including editorializing, product reviews, sports reporting, educational and more) - which he has since given up in favor of blogging and fiction. (Leaving the paintball industry after 25 years.) One final book on this subjected is scheduled to be released in early 2009 (A Parent's Guide To Paintball). Current work on fiction includes several completed novellettes/novellas curently in submission hell and various chapters of three novels. Freely distributed current work - including several chapters of a science fiction/paintball novel and a pulp/comic book/fairy tale mashup can be found on his website.

  24. Remember folks, to check recent previous posts: The bacon blow torch has been posted several times now.

  25. In reading This is not a game which I believe was recommended in this blog, I ran across a mention of “candied pepper bacon” as one of a choice of breakfast meats. I can’t quite wrap my imagination around that one, although no doubt someone here has eaten it.

  26. Jeff Erickson – Urbana, IL – I'm a professor of computer science at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign and the chair of the steering committee for the International Symposium on Computational Geometry.

    “Take heed, because I’m a bacon poet.”

    (Nobody’s posted this yet?!)

  27. In other news, my friends and I are now referring to the swine flu as Bacon Lung.

  28. Mike Daisey is doing a performance in NY on June 8: “Mysteries of the Unexplained: Bacon.” He will also cook and serve bacon to the audience.

    From the FB event page about Mike Daisey (full disclosure – he was a college classmate of mine): “MIKE DAISEY has been called “the master storyteller” and “one of the finest solo performers of his generation” by the New York Times for his groundbreaking monologues which weave together autobiography, gonzo journalism, and unscripted performance to tell hilarious and heartbreaking stories that cut to the bone, exposing secret histories and unexpected connections. His monologues, fourteen and counting, include the controversial How Theater Failed America, the six-hour epic Great Men of Genius, the unrepeatable series All Stories Are Fiction, and the international sensation 21 Dog Years. Over the past decade he has performed his unique extemporaneous monologues at venues across America and around the world. He’s been a guest on the Late Show with David Letterman, a contributor to WIRED, Slate and Salon, a web contributor to Vanity Fair and Radar Magazine, and his work has been frequently heard on the BBC and NPR.”

  29. The 40 Hour Creative – I'm here to help you be creative! I've written plays and created the web series THE CANADIANS (now on Amazon Prime), among other things. Seth Godin said 'start a blog,' so we'll see how long this lasts.
    Greg

    Medley beat me to it. As a fan of Mike’s, I’m sorry to have to miss his bacon show; his monologue “The Ugly American,” about his time as a starving theatre student in London, is one of the funniest things I’ve ever seen.

    http://www.mikedaisey.com/2009/05/our-thanks-to-everyone-who-came-out-for.sht

    Medley, if you were a college classmate of Mike’s, that means you went to Colby College, in Waterville, Maine, where I grew up… did you by any chance take any classes w/ Dick Sewell? Or sing in the choir (conducted by my dad)?

  30. This is what I had for lunch today at the hospital:

    2 Brauts (sp?) with bacon, carmelized onions and mustard,
    Fries
    and a Mountain Dew

    and I’m supposedly a health professional.

    Take care,

  31. Oh, and there are a potload of other bacon related items on that above link.

  32. Follow up on the Cudahy, WI fire…now this a bacon fire!

    “…with more than 150 fire fighters from 30 fire departments…the event reached the equivalent of an 8 alarm fire.”

  33. Rembrant @ 224 beat me to it…. Damn. Though I have pics of the chocolate covered bacon sign from the Del Mar Fair.

  34. OK, it is not on the intertubes but good old fashioned paper publication Chile Pepper magazine has an article on bacon in the September issue. Several tasty recipes and a listing of bacon-themed products and some artisanal bacon suppliers. (I still say you should make your own.)

  35. BACON BEER!!!

    Have we discussed bacon fat mayonnaise yet? That is some fat on fat ACTION.

    http://cavemanfood.blogspot.com/2009/04/bacon-mayonnaise.html

  37. In a time when “bringing home the bacon” means that you are keeping your job safe in this financial apocalypse, I would like to shed some light on places that are truly bringing home the bacon despite what is happening on Wall St.

    Whether you like slab bacon, gourmet, thick cut, thin cut, peppered, nitrate-free, or bacon art; the magic of this food can overpower the most depleted 401K. Not all cities have an equal love for this savory dish, so where in the United States does meat candy reign supreme?

    Is bacon suitable for rocket construction? From the guys at rathergood.com.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U4wTFuaV8VQ

    The ending makes it all worth it. Well, that plus the bacon song.

  40. Karen @ 297 — Parchment paper is a baker’s supply; it comes in large sheets for the pros, rolls for us home folk. Look in the grocery store along with foil and plastic wraps. I use an 11×17″ cooling grid in a half-sheet pan instead; preheat to 400ºF, bake 20 minutes, nearly perfect. Look at 15 and 18, depending on how crispy you want.

    The bacon roses … there’s a twisty way of making a paper rose that might work with bacon, hmmm.

    Tully — you beat me, came here to post that.

  41. The same link also has a discussion of older versions of preserving bacon – and why you’d need to. (not for the faint of stomach!)

  42. For bacon lovers in the New York City area, may I present the Choinkwich! It’s a treat served by the mobile business known as The Big Gay Ice Cream Truck. Choinkwich ingredients are chocolate ice cream, two chocolate cartwheel cookies, and carmelized bacon.

    For those who want to see a picture of this beauty, go here: http://www.biggayicecreamtruck.com/goodies/

    You’ll have to scroll down a little to find the Choinkwich picture.

  43. I tried the Chocolate covered Bacon at the county fair last night (Alameda County Fair held in Pleasanton/Dublin in California) The bacon they used had a strong fake smoke flavor, like it had liquid smoke added to the bacon they bought. The first few bites were great.. but then the liquid smoke kicked in and just left a bad taste in my mouth. Not recommended. I love bacon and chocolate covered bacon bars i have before were great. This choco dipped one at the fair could have been a million times better had they used a better bacon.

  44. Bad pun warning:

    Three Legionnaires are walking through the desert under a baking sun. They’re fully equipped with enough water for days and food aplenty — but they were fascinated that they still saw mirages.

    They see visions of swimming pools attended by dusky maidens. They see stalls full of ice creams and sorbets of every conceivable flavor. They see cool ponds inviting them to take a swim. But the Legionnaires do not crack. Instead they keep marching solidly on.

    Suddenly one of them freezes. “Psssst,” he says. His companions halt and strain their eyes to where the first Legionnaire is pointing.

    “There!” he says, with a thick accent. “Is zat a bacon tree on ze horizon?”

    And sure enough, there it is, proud and defiant in the middle of the desert: an actual bacon tree! Slowly they creep forward towards the far off mystery object. Centimetre by centimetre they carefully crawl until they are within a stone’s throw of the bacon tree. Ever nearer they creep until suddenly a shot rings out, dropping one of the Legionnaires in his tracks. The other Legionnaires hit the ground as bullets thud into the sand around them.

    The other two return fire and give first aid to their wounded companion.

    Even as they bandage him and pour water over his face they can hear his faint voice:

    “Zat vas no bacon tree,” the wounded man gasps out as his final words. “Zat iz a ham bush.”

    (from http://www.jumbojoke.com/the_legionnaires_mirage.html)

  45. INAPPROPRIATE BACON:

    FLORENCE, SC (WMBF) – A national Muslim civil rights and advocacy group is calling on the FBI to investigate a message written in bacon at mosque in Florence.

    Three chair members of the Islamic Center in Florence discovered the words “pig” and “chump” written in strips of bacon on the walkway along the mosque Sunday afternoon.

  46. Below is a link to a recipe for Bacon Baklava, which may be the purest expression of bacony splendor I have ever experienced.

    (However, the one confection I have yet to see someplace, is bacon-wrapped chocolate. NOT chocolate dipped bacon, but the other way around.)

  47. A new recipe for egg nog;

  48. changterhune – Before you hear lies from Chang Terhune himself, we thought we’d tell you the truth: without us, his old action figures, he’d be nowhere. He loved science fiction from way back and began reading it at an early age, but it was through us that he acted it all out. That’s what led to the writing. He watched a lot of science fiction shows like Star Trek, U.F.O, and movies, too. But we were always there to do his bidding. And it’s like they say: you always forget about the little people on your way up. Oh, the 70’s and early 80’s with him were good times! He’d use these blocks and make all the crazy buildings for us to be in his stories. I gotta say the kid’s imagination was pretty damn fertile. Oh, he had friends, but they just weren’t into it like him. He was like the Lance Armstrong of action figures. And of science fiction. At first, when he began writing in the eighth grade, we didn’t mind. He still made time for us. And we knew that when he was holding us in his sweaty little hands and he got that far off look in his eye, he’d come back to burying us in the back yard or - god forbid! – blowing us up with firecrackers. But it was worth it for a part in one of those stories. We loved him for it. He kept us around even when we were minus a leg or two - or even a head. In that mind of his, he found a use for all of us. Then he discovered girls. October, 1986. It was like the end of the world. One day we’re standing in the middle of this building block creation he’d pretended was some marble city on a planet near Alpha Centauri and the next we were stuck in a box in the closet. Not even a “See ya later!” Nope, it was into the closet, then we heard some high-pitched girly-giggles then silence. We didn’t see him for years. We got word about him once in a while. Heard he took up writing, but it was crap like “The Breakfast Club” only with better music. We couldn’t believe it. Not Charlie. What happened to those aliens with heads he’d sculpted out of wax? Spaceships? Those complex plots? All gone. For what? You guessed it: Girls. Emotions. “Serious fiction.” I tell you, it was like hearing Elvis had left the building. During our two decade exile in the closet, we heard other things about him. He went to college. He wrote a lot, but not much he really liked. We knew it even then. It was like he didn’t dare write science fiction. Some of us had lost hope and just lay there. Others kept vigil, hoping for a day we didn’t dare speak about. Then we heard he’d stopped writing in 1996. Did he come to reclaim us? No. He took up music for ten years or so. He took up yoga. Once in a while, he’d visit us in the closet. But it was half-hearted. His mind was elsewhere. Then one day, he really did come back for us. One second we’re in the dark and the next thing we know we’re in a car headed for Massachusetts. Suddenly we got a whole shelf to ourselves out in broad daylight! Then he bought a bunch of others form some planet called Ebay. He’d just sit and stare at us with that old look. But why were we suddenly back in the picture? He had a wife now, who didn’t mind that he played with us. So what had happened? Turns out he’d never forgotten about those stories. He’d been thinking about all of us and the stories he’d made up and then remembered he’d been a writer once. From the shelf we could see him typing away. Before long he’s got a whole novel together! Then he’s working on another one. Word is there are two more in the planning stages! Some short stories, too! It’s good to see him using his imagination again. Its good to know he never abandoned us. He returned to his true love of science fiction. We hear the stories are pretty good. Someday we’ll get one of the cats to score us a copy of the manuscript. Man, it’s good to be out of the damn closet! --- I'm smarter than you I'm harder than you I'm better than you I'm just raw I'm hotter than you More popular than you More clever than you And goshdarn it, people like me I'm smarter than you I'm harder than you I'm better than you I'm just raw I'm hotter than you More popular than you More clever than you And goshdarn it, people like me

    Oh, my god. I broke Rule #5 of the Canonical Bacon Page which is mail something bacon related to Scalzi. Well, then here it is: a bacon bikini.

    Actually, for the more prurient of porcine procurers there is a treasure trove of bikini’s with bacon to be found on the Google Image Search.

    Can you tell I just had bacon?

  49. Mr. Bacon’s Big Adventure Board Game.

    http://www.mcphee.com/shop/products/Mr.-Bacon%27s-Big-Adventure-Board-Game.html

    “This is by far the most mouth-watering meatcentric board game ever created! As you move your bacon character along the path through Meatland you’ll have to navigate your way through areas like the Mustard Marsh, the Wiener Wasteland and the Sausage Sea. The first one to make it to the frying pan at the end of the trail wins! Includes gameboard with spinner, four game pieces with plastic stands, twenty-four game cards and alternate rules that turn the game into a gluttonous meat feast!”

  50. post a bacon link, you say? Well, if I must.
    A BACON LINK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    there you go.

  51. Made some nice Bacon Wrapped jalapeño Poppers over the weekend.. all Homemade style.. next time I make it I’ll snap a picture. But just picture in your head a nice popper with real cream cheese filling, lightly breaded and fried up, then before it is all the way done, take them out, pat dry and then wrap in bacon and Bake it in the oven.. and serve them with a sweet and spicy berry sauce (like the Bronco Berry Sauce from Arbys)

  52. If you use the word “bacon” in a twitter post (observed march 2011) you will immediately be followed by a follow-bot that appears to be animal-rights related.

  53. Actual conversation between myself and my two daughters:

    ME: ….so your dad and I are hoping we can go see John Scalzi again when he’s down here in May for his book.
    YOUNGER DAUGHTER: Okay, I keep hearing this name, but I have to ask: Who is John Scalzi?
    ME: He’s a science fiction author. You know, he has that blog, Whatever, he wrote Zoe’s Tale?
    YOUNGER DAUGHTER: I don’t think I’ve actually read that.
    ME: Hm. Well, he wrote the Old Man’s War Series, so–
