There’s been a lot of press about this so I gotta get this post up. Thank you to Andrew Loos and BBQ Addicts for introducing the world to the Bacon Lombardi and for putting up the first post.
It all started when Chris Martin, my roommate and VFX compositor extraordinairre made a rockin flyer for Bacon Bowl II. Once I saw it, I knew it had to be made a reality.
I couldn’t figure out how to do it though. I thought about the Bacon explosion but I didn’t think I could get enough structural integrity to make it in 3D. Come on now, Avatar in 3D has changed the game. I couldn’t just make a trophy on a sheet pan. It had to stand.
I would have smoked it, but I knew I was going to be smoking some salmon (thank you Alton Brown. The ladies always love it!) and possibly Allan’s stuffed mushrooms, and who knows what else. I was just never going to have room in my smoker. Maybe that just means it’s time to step it up and get a bigger one.
And finally I had a finished product!
AND, I just found out today, we made the evening news on WKRC in Cincinnati. Check it out!
