I thought the bacon lovers would enjoy the brilliance of this dish. Here is the original post.

I really, really wish I could blame this all on MadDog Mike. Thereís a guy who loves his Spam. Based on his posts, Iíd say thereís a guy who loves his dead pig, period. Somehow, his excitement was contagious over the miles, infecting a brain in the Wastelands with the need, or dare I say compulsion, to cook Spam.

Iíd just finished working out a nice rumaki when I stumbled across the dang Spam thread and it happened: the idea of preparing Spam in the style of rumaki got into my head and has haunted me for weeks. Iím confident I can make it work if I ever have to and that should be enough. Why wouldnít that be enough?

It isnít enough. I have to know. The other day, the urge grew too strong: I bought the Spam.

Typically, Iím pretty literal about food definitions, so to really be rumaki, bacon should be wrapped around marinated chicken or maybe duck liver and a water chestnut. Anything else is simply bacon-wrapped anything-else. Iíll allow Spam because, like the bird livers, it needs some work to make it desirable, but Iíll still waffle a bit and call it rumaki-style Spam (Spam en Brochette a la mode du Rumaki?) just to keep what conscience I have left clean . . . clean-ish, anyway.



I started with something like my normal Rumaki recipe, only with Spam. . .

1 can of Spam, cut into 1 inch cubes
4 oz can water chestnuts, drained
12 slices bacon, halved crosswise
1 cup soy sauce
1/2 cup mirin
1 tsp sri racha
1 crushed garlic clove
1 Tbsp fresh ginger, peeled and chopped

. . . all of which is real nice, but I threw in 1 chopped jalapeno, an ounce or so of hoisin and the last of my Healthy Boy brand sweet soy with a drizzle of yuzu juice. Thatís right, I used yuzu on Spam. Do you hear that whirring sound? Itís very sincere Pacific Rim food snobs spinning in their metaphorical graves. I may have splashed a dab of fish sauce into the pungent hell-brew, as well. After a 36-hour marination, I wrapped them up and took them to the grill.



Do you hear an increase in the whirring? Thatís my culinary school instructors joining the Pacific Rim food snobs in their figurative casket pirouettes. This stuff is absolutely, perhaps even freakiní, delicious. I did these on a standard issue gas grill and had to stay alert in case of flare-ups, but other than that, easy sailing. Theyíre much easier to handle than the livers and donít have the bitterness associated with innards; in terms of texture and richness, however, they are quite similar. Like real rumaki, two or three is plenty. I serve them with straight sri racha, because subtlety at this stage of the game seems a bit pointless.

So, MDM, if youíre out there--and you are out there, although possibly wishing to disassociate yourself from the entire project--this oneís for you. It is tasty, vaguely Asian, completely inauthentic, wrapped in bacon, doesnít have any nori involved, and looks nice on a plate. You canít beat it with a log of centrifuged pork product.

Bacon Milk Shake from Jack in the Box.
It doesn't appear on the menu. You have to ask for it.

Christian Science Monitor: Bacon Milk Shake

You may have seen the commercial for this on the Superbowl...

Jack in the Box: Marry Bacon

Oops, I forgot. TikiCentralers don't watch the Superbowl.

saw this post on the surf music forum,
thought some here might enjoy.
Jeff(btd)




A few vegans I know frown on anyone who eats pork products. They say "pigs are disgusting. They wallow in mud & their own poo. Why would you eat that?". I tell vegans that if they were kept in a pig pen, they have no choice but to wallow. Pigs like the cool mud since they hav no sweat glands.

Then I tell then in my own fecetious argument why food bearing plants are more disgusting than pigs:
1. Plants not only wallow in the dirt, they live there all their lives.
2. They only grow in fertile soil, enriched by dead animals. They makes them carnivores.
3. They feed on fertilizer ( poop ). That makes them poopivores.
4. They feed on each other. That makes them cannibals.
5. They pollinate with bees, which means they are into weird kinky threeways, as described in the movie "Clerks 2" as "interspecies erotica".
6. When fruit falls from the tree, the tree abandons their own children to any critter who wants to eat them. A mama pig will tend to her piglets.

If a plant was a human, it would be in prison.

Of course, this really doesn't prove a whole lot, just that I had a few minutes to kill typing this.
