    May I suggest you never work on a farm. You will end up starving to death!

    Do you eat chicken? Chickens will go behind other animals and eat the corn outa their shit.

    Yeah, you best not live/work on a farm.

    Bourbon-infused bacon, yes. Bacon-infused bourbon, I'm not so sure about. I love bacon, but that seems a bit odd.

    Re: Bacon-Infused Bourbon

    How about this for a great dessert or breakfast treat? Bacon ice cream topped w/a bacon-infused bourbon butterscotch sauce, topped with bacon bits and raspberries. Yum.

    In defense of the pigs (the animal not human ones), they have to roll in MUD (my understanding is that they don't really roll in their own feces) to keep from overheating (they have no sweat glands) and to protect their skin against sunburn. And hey, like the book says, everybody poops. And those big juicy fruits and veggies you love don't get that way w/o fertilizer. And the best fertilizer doesn't come out of a bag marked "miracle grow" either!

    Besides not working on a farm, may I also suggest you never work in a canning factory. You will be as turned off to canned veggies and fruits, etc. as you are to pork. Above all, NEVER go hunting with someone who insists that you clean your own game.

    Re: Bacon-Infused Bourbon

    I love bacon and I love bourbon. I understand how to get a bourbon flavor into bacon, but how do you infuse the bacon into the bourbon? Or do you buy it that way? Side note: we had hickory smoked B-B-Q pork chops last night that had been marinated in a bourbon sauce. Hard to tell which gave the best flavor, hickory or bourbon, but combined it was superb.

    HAAHAHAHA!!

    Actually my Grandfather (who's passed on now) owned a farm and he had lots of livestock including chickens and cattle so I've been around them since I was little and I'm aware they're not so clean either. But before I was born he stopped raising pigs so I'd never spent much time around them.

    I do think pigs are disgusting on another level though. Maybe it's because they're so similar to humans. That makes them even less appealing.

    Re: Bacon-Infused Bourbon

    As for how it's done, I looked at her method with vodka. It's funny, because every other step is "eat some bacon." It's basically just cooked bacon--not quite crispy, she says--left to soak in spirit (vodka, bourbon) for some period of time. I think it's safe to say that each is infused with the other. The creator also tends to use the post-soak bacon as a garnish. I'm sure nothing is wasted.
