You know you’re back in America…
The Bacon Bomb Challenge at Paddy Long's in Chicago, Illinois.
You know you’re back in America…when you go to a bachelor party (yes, bachelor party) and the groom-to-be attempts to eat this by himself:
Paddy Long’s Bacon Bomb is five pounds of ground sausage, pork and beef mixed with spices and wrapped in a weave of brown sugar bacon, and then slow cooked on a pig roaster. It serves 6-8 people.
Sid attempted the challenge of eating it himself, something only three people have ever done (one of those being Pat Bertoletti). He managed to get almost halfway through before deciding that he wasn’t going to be able to finish it.
At least I got to reap the rewards…
And the rest of the table combined struggled to finish the rest.

As much as I love bacon, I definitely wouldn’t even attempt this challenge.

I’m quite pleased with my ability to close my eyes for all pictures above.
Also, Katrina, the name was misleading. The majority of that thing was meatloaf. Bacon was just the outer wrapping, and a tiny core within the meatloaf. A love of meatloaf would have been more useful.

Between the bacon, the beef, and given that it’s all meat, you lose the Hindus (and other veggies), the Muslims, the Jews, and also some minor religions (e.g., Jains, some Buddhists). Thus, a couple of billion poor people in the world would puke at the thought of eating any of this stuff. So, don’t be such a self-satisfied, sanctimonious snot.
