Bitterwallet's Friday challenge - can YOU build a bigger bacon sandwich?

30 July 2010

Yesterday we brought you news of a mammoth bacon sandwich, available at Tony's I-75 in Birch Run, Michigan. It professed to offer a whole pound of streaky bacon between the baps and the very sight of it could kill a horse at 100 metres.

Inspired, we decided to replicate the beast in the Bitterwallet laboratory yesterday afternoon (the kitchen - much to the disgust of the Dealspwn team), but we wanted to build a bigger bacon behemoth. The original used a pound of bacon, so we juiced our mother up to a full kilogram of raw pig:

Bitterwallet - our bacon sandwich attempt

Compare it to yesterday's sandwich, and it's clear they're either using a lot more bacon than they're letting on, or there's some photo-trickery involved. Regardless, the bar has been set - this is the sandwich we want you to beat this weekend.

We want to see your attempts to build a bigger bacon sandwich - and we'll refund all purchases of bacon used in your attempt, upon delivery of a scanned receipt and video evidence of your endeavour by 10am on Monday. We won't cover subsequent healthcare costs or any other damages that may arise as a result of this frankly foolhardy challenge.

Come on, avid readers! What have you got to lose except your mortality?

    Thanks BitterWallet, I've just ordered 100Kg of bacon from our finest butcher.

    How about some footage of a poor bugger eating it?

    Piggy - nobody wanted to, oddly. Basil Brush - good man, excellent! So long as you can prove you cooked it all for one sandwich, we'll refund you.

    Now that *does* looks like a girlie garden.

    Is applaud the effort but was there any need to use a cheese-topped bap?
  • Willy-wonka
    "full kilogram of raw pig:" - Looks like you cooked it to me?
  • Paul S.
    Perhaps we used raw pig in preparation of the bacon sandwich?
  • Paul N.
    We considered using a healthy whole grain bap but figured in for a penny in for a pound. We refrained from melting cheese all over the bacon though.

    I've just seen tomorrow's Daily Mail lead headline; "Hundreds Die in Sick Internet Challenge" Followed by calls from bigoted columnists to ban the internet and possibly bacon.

    I heard Mof often eats a excessive mouthful of pork.

    There is definitely more than a pound of bacon in the one yesterday. Why else do you think Americans are a bunch of fat cunts? They cannot get food measurements right, and always underestimate.

    How much brown sauce needs to be used on a Kilo of bacon then?
  • James
    Man that sandwich looks fucking delicious. Only got dry fucking cereal at the moment with no milk >_>

    To be fair, the original said it was a BLT... So there might be some tomatoes and lettuce hiding under the bacon. Might.
  • PokeHerPete
    That looks DISGUSTING! ...tiger rolls taste like shit.
  • bawbag
    Tiger rolls FTW

    @mikebike none if you use proper bacon rather than the fatty rind off of your mothers arse.

    The Bird holding it had better calm down,looks like SHE has eaten one already!

    I would love to know what Bitterwallet would do if all their readers took this offer up... i might even post it on HUKD.... buy bacon, make a sarnie and post a pic and bingo, free sarnie ! Can you also do a similar deal on how much beer you can drink? 10 pints i reckon and i will post a picture.
