    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

          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.

                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.

                      The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy


                      The PBC has a rabid cult following for good reason. It is absolutely positively without a doubt the best bargain on a smoker in the world. Period. This baby will cook circles around the cheap offset sideways barrel smokers because temperature control is so much easier.

                      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!

                      Comprehensive Temperature Magnet With 80+ Important Temps

                      Amazingribs.com temperature magnet
                      Winner of the National BBQ Association’s product of the year award. This 8.5″ x 11″ magnet contains more that 80 benchmark temperatures for meats (both USDA recommended temps as well as the temps chefs recommend), fats and oils, sugars, sous vide, eggs, collagens, wood combustion, breads, and more. Although it is not certified as all-weather, we have tested it outdoors in Chicago weather and it has not delaminated in three years, but there is minor fading.

                      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.

                      Is This Superb Charcoal Grill A Kamado Killer?


                      The PK-360, with 360 square inches of cooking space, this rust free, cast aluminum charcoal grill is durable and easy to use. Four-way venting means it’s easy to set up for two zone cooking with more control than single vent Kamado grills. It is beautifully designed, completely portable, and much easier to set up for 2-zone cooking than any round kamado.
