Is it bad that I had already read that page a few months back when I was trying to find an internet reference for the pork sausage with bacon that I had? 

As far as beer goes, I'd pair it with a schlekerla lager to invoke some subtle smoke without overpowering the bacon (like that is possible in that sandwich).

Nice article, but I gotta say... the glaring omission is any mention of how it really tastes.  Yeah, we know how the finished product looked and all that, but I wanted some flavor impressions.  Yeah, yeah, we know it tastes like bacon, but I want details.

But heck, who am I kidding?  I'd eat it (or attempt to eat it) in a heartbeat, with a Schlenkerla Urbock to wash it down.

B and K (K and K?), I'd bet that sandwich would make the brews you mentioned taste like everyday lager and bock. Finally, a meal that would overwhelm rauchbiers!

Ohhh, wait.  My northern brethren can back me up, but I suspect NG's new Smoke on the Porter might could stand up to a baconburger.  It was awfully chewy and meaty.

Turn bacon into a sweet treat

Ingredients:

16 slices (about 1 pound) bacon the best quality you can find
11/2 teaspoons crushed red pepper, or more if you like
1/3 cup firmly packed light-brown sugar, or morePer serving: calories, 214; fats, 17 grams (71% of calories); cholesterol, 40 milligrams; carbohydrate, 9 grams; fiber, 0 grams; protein, 6 grams; sodium, 423 milligrams; sugar, 9 grams

Directions:

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Line two 10-by-15-inch rimmed baking sheets with parchment paper and place a wire rack on top of each sheet. Don't skip this step or you will be cleaning the pans into the next decade. Arrange the bacon in a single layer on the two racks. Evenly sprinkle with the pepper and sugar.

Bake until bacon is crisp and browned, rotating the sheet pans in the oven halfway through the process. Some people turn the bacon over. I don't. It's too much trouble for too little result. Remove from the racks onto a plate and pat any remaining grease lightly. Serve hot or at room temperature. You can make this several hours in advance, and keep at room temperature. I have never tried making it a day ahead.

Makes 8 servings.

Hey, my brother makes brown sugar bacon!  Recipe, schmecipe.  Just mix some cayenne with brown sugar and coat the bacon with it.  Bake at 350 until done.  Serve hot and fresh and just try to stay away.

I used to always used some table sugar on bacon as it finished cooking. Of course the bacon started out being Sugar Cured and Hickory Smoked, but if you're gonna eat bacon you might as well go whole hog... :rimshot:

Was going to check this place out this weekend, but apparently they close for a month at Christmas.

Scroll down to the Hogzilla sandwich:

Locals tell me this is THE spot in Asheville for pork.

Does that mean you are coming to the Asheville Winter Beer Fest?

I'll be in Asheville around lunch Friday. Leaving Saturday a.m. I won't be sticking around for the fest. My wife has to be back home Saturday and it doesn't make sense to drive 2 cars. So no fest for me. :empty:

I notice 12 Bones is only open M-F. So I guess I will be checking it out on a weekday anyway.

12 Bones is great. They catered a Pop The Cap / Bruisin' Ales / French Broad love fest a few months back. The sauces were particularly good.

Course it's not NC bbq, more like the world of barbecue in a city in NC.

a co-worker of mine told me the other day that he didn't like or eat bacon.  I questioned his manhood.
