Clint Cantwell and his team from Smoke In Da Eye BBQ used five slices of bacon to make a Bacon Explosion, a new world record.

The group crumbled together two slices of Oscar Mayer bacon and 1/8 of a pound of Jimmy Dean sausage, and then wrapped it all inside a woven roll made from three bacon slices cut into tiny strips. The resulting Explosion was 4 1/2" long and 1 1/4" thick.

    The original record should have been the world's smallest bacon explosion. I'll make a new one shortly and break my own record.

    Hey Guys. Although this is a dead end record, we discussed at HQ and Josh's record should still stand. Congrats Josh! Any other bacon related records up your sleeve?

    The original record used bacon that was sliced. I tried to replicate the same technique that the first record used, even though it wasn't specified in the description. I think it would be possible to break this record, simply by using only a fraction of a slice. The only difficulty there would be judging what is half a slice, a third of a slice, etc. Weighing the slice beforehand and then again after cutting it to verify the proportions would probably work.

    Eventually, as with all measurable records, there will be a point that it will no longer be able to be broken. Either by reaching what is physically possible or by what is physically measurable. Coming to one of these points should not negate what has been done, simply because no one is able or willing to break it.

    Anyway, I couldn't pass up an opportunity to set a world record involving bacon.

    Ma-Ann admittedly, this is what happens when you have "Fewest" records. It seems that the only feasible direction to take this record is "Shortest Slice Of Bacon Used To Make A Bacon Explosion", unless you reject Josh's record for slicing the bacon vertically (and essentially making 12 mini slices).

    Nice! How does it feel to have broken your own record?

    This category clearly has reached its border. Now, it's unbreakable. Vote to deny.

    Clint You should! We have a live event coming up in NYC on November 10th if you're free...

    I'm sure I could put together the world's largest bacon explosion as well.

    Tell you what, Dan, if I ever make it up to HQ, I'll make one and share it among the team. Deal?

    Someone should make the world's BIGGEST bacon explosion.

    Fixed measurement.

    You're correct Eratosthenes. It should read 1 1/4 inches wide/thick.

    Looks delicious. However I doubt that the measurement of 1/8" thickness is anywhere near accurate. :-P
