Super Bowl Giveaway: The Bacon Explosion


[Photograph: BBQ Addicts]

You may remember last year we introduced you to The Bacon Explosion: a mat of woven bacon layered with sausage and more bacon (I mean, why not) that's sauced up then rolled and smoked. Jason Day and Aaron Chronister of BBQ Addicts, the creators of the far-from-vegetarian concept, developed it for last year's Super Bowl and now one year later, are actually selling them online, all rolled up and ready to heat.

Picture a normal Super Bowl party spread (cheese dip, chili, wings, oh hey guacamole). Now envision a table with space made for The Bacon Explosion. Maybe a few more friends would RSVP when there's a meat log involved? (Packed with at least 5,000 calories and 500 grams of fat, but who's really counting.) Jason and Aaron are sending them to three lucky Serious Eaters just in time for next Sunday's game.

But obviously we're going to make you work for it. To enter to win, please give us a quote about bacon. Be it funny, profound, or inspirational—the three best also have the chance to appear on the back cover of their soon-to-be-released book BBQ Makes Everything Better. The book is all about barbecue, not just bacon or bacon monstrosities.

Contest will end and comments will close at 3 p.m. ET, Monday, February 1, 2010. One entry per community member. Winners are limited to residents of the continental U.S. Standard Serious Eats contest rules apply.
