    SURVEY: Children think bacon comes from a "bacon plant"

    A survey suggests children (age 4-7) may not know where their food comes from.
    • Over 2/3 believe that bacon comes from a plant
    • All animal-based foods were mis-identified by at least 30% of children
    • Cows, Pigs, and Chickens were said to be inedible by 77%, 73%, and 66% respectively
    • 46% of kids think French fries are animal-based
    The researchers admit that some of the survey results may be skewed merely due to the age range and lack of food knowledge of the young participants


    Foolz....its brought by kindly old elves....


      My 5 year old knows bacon comes from a pig’s belly. Ive educated him!!


        • Cows, Pigs, and Chickens were said to be inedible by 77%, 73%, and 66% respectively
        that tells me that Parents don’t know how to cook cows, pigs, & chickens 77%, 73%, & 66% respectively….


          To see the world though a child's eyes... they picture the living animal, and probably think 'edible' means can you go up and take a bite out of it.


            It doesn't? Well that explains why that bacon tree I bought never produced

                Of course bacon comes from a bacon orchard aka trees. I’m glad somebody got things right around here finally. Ham bush is nice, but everybody knows ham comes from a box like pancakes.


                  Serendipity. As I'm reading this thread, I'm wearing this t-shirt. Taking into account that kids these ages also believe in Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny, and cooties, this isn't really surprising.

                    That t-shirt is so funny, where can I get one.
                    My wife just shook her head.

                    Technically, bbqLuv is a vegetarian - except all the vegetables happen to be converted into something tastier by magical animals.

                    Remember, you are what you eat -- and as long as you eat those magical vegetarian animals, you too can be considered a vegetarian

                  Well, bacon does come from a plant, aka processing facility or factory.


                    ComfortablyNumb being our farming expert should have the final say in this!

                      Our Favorite Backyard Smoker

                      The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing. At its crux is a patented firebox that burns logs above the cooking chamber and sucks heat and extremely clean blue smoke into the thermostat controlled oven. It is our favorite smoker, period.

                      The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, grilled cheese, and so much more. And why deep fry indoors when you can avoid the smell and mess by doing it outside!

                      The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted

                      Napoleon’s 22″ Pro Cart Charcoal Kettle Grill puts a few spins on the familiar kettle design. In fact, the hinged lid with a handle on the front, spins in a rotary motion 180 degrees. It’s hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the 22″ Pro Cart a viable alternative.

                      Grilla Pellet Smoker proves good things come in small packages

                      We always liked Grilla. The small 31.5″ x 29.5″ footprint makes it ideal for use where BBQ space is limited, as on a condo patio.

                      Masterbuilt MPS 340/G ThermoTemp XL Propane Smoker

                      This is the first propane smoker with a thermostat, making this baby foolproof. Set ThermoTemp’s dial from 175° to 350°F and the thermostat inside will adjust the burner just like an indoor kitchen oven. All you need to do is add wood to the tray above the burner to start smokin’.
