I love “old school” informational videos. Here’s one from Hormel about how bacon is made, circa 1965. Incidentally, Hormel contributed a couple quotes to my book, Bacon: A Love Story, and they’ve been supportive of the project. Enjoy. (via Sizzology)
A few weeks ago, I took a trip to The Pork Shop in Queen Creek, Arizona with a couple friends. We were able to peek behind the counter and spend some time talking with owner, Greg Combs, about his delicious craft.
I reference The Pork Shop several times in my book, Bacon: A Love Story, which will be available in bookstores THIS TUESDAY. I can hardly believe it – less than 48 hours to go! In the meantime, check out our video from The Pork Shop.

Jon Stewart eats a sausage wrapped in a pancake and dipped in Baconnaise while mocking Bobby Jindal’s disaster of a Republican Response to the State of the Union. Something like this would only make sense on the Daily Show.
