Bacon Explosion III – And It Was Good.

As a continuation of my Bacon Explosion Meatloaf experiment

When the apostle Peter was in the City of Joppa, The LORD presented him with a vision. In this vision, Peter saw a sheet let down from the heavens which had in it animals of every type from all over the world. The voice of The LORD said to Peter, “Get up. Kill and eat.”

Many of the creatures Peter saw were not on the whitelist of kosher law. This prompted Peter to respond, “Surely not, Lord! Nothing impure or unclean has ever entered my mouth.”

The LORD rebutted, “Do not call anything impure that God has made clean,” and He emphasized His original command to Peter twice prior to the end of the vision.

(Acts Chapter 11)

This is why Christianity is better than Judaism. We have bacon. I’m not sure on what day God made bacon and said “It is good,” but it was bound to have happened at some point in time. Heck, maybe the only reason God decided to fulfill the Law with Christ is so He could then eat bacon! One way or another, my religion permits this:

This time, the bacon-wrapped meatloaf spent no oven time. OrangeNeckinNY, I did not spray it with water. Instinct, I used no parchment paper nor foil, nor did I turn the heat down. Quite the contrary! I actually cranked up the heat to just about full-throttle on the front burner, but left the back one off. I placed the log of meaty wonder toward the back of the grill grate and left it there for about 1.5-hours. The grill maintained a temperature of about 450-degrees in the box. It did not catch on fire. It did not disintegrate. It was good.

It was very good. I’ve had meatloaf that I have enjoyed before. This very well may be the best meatloaf I’ve ever had. I’ll probably never be able to get it like this again, but you never know. It’s probably worth the try. I’m pretty convinced that meatloaf is not complete unless it is wrapped in bacon.

The last two pictures make it look more pink than it was. The meat did get done. Since a single, bacon-wrapped, meatloaf log is about the right size for a family dinner, I may just put some of these together and throw them in the freezer for easy cooking on the fly. I will also have to try these in the campfire (using Instinct’s parchment suggestion). Now, I feel sleep coming on. Goodnight to both of you – my sweet, dear readers!

  1. Instinct, I have a little left over. I could put it in a box with some dry-ice and air it to you, I suppose… Incidentally, I think your wife is smart.

  2. In my case, I attribute it to my wife being a sucker for my spontaneity. That’s really all I can figure. From what you’ve said, it could be due to your persistence. I dunno. Congratulations in any case.
