Wow. Just wow.

I have this incredible craving for a salad now, along with spending an hour on the treadmill. And I don't even think that will alleviate the guilt I've recieved just from watching that.

Oh that looks so disgusting. Disgustingly GOOD!

Good christ almighty... This somehow supercedes the deep fried twinkies even.

I'm a fairly big guy myself, and definitely not a vegetarian, but I can't help thinking that this is just plain wrong.

Needs more salt!

Were I to prepare this (and I'm thinking of doing so cause I like to deep fry), I would pre-cook the bacon almost to the point of crispness so that a lot of the bacon fat would render out.

Battering raw bacon just seals in all of the bacon fat.

Goodness gracious... Eat that stuff regularly is what I call living life on the edge. Ahhh.... to be home again!

Salds are for wimps. I have added this item to the Things I Must Eat Before I Die list. I have had deepfried twinkies, oreos, and Mars Bars, but this is in the realm of the sublime.

Deep fried bacon I can forgive. But ketchup on a steak (3:13)? That I cannot brook. Fucking philistines.

I wouldn't mind trying a strip of that, but Mr. Sodolak is not exactly the picture of good health. He's a few more cigarettes and fried meals away from a heart attack. Kudos to the cameraman for getting him silouhetted against the window in the opening shot.

Needs more salt!

I had the same reaction when the woman said: "This is good. Just needs salt." The trifecta for heart-health: fatty bacon, frying in oil (no trans-fats in New York) and salt! That said, I'd love to try it.

Nonsense. I eat fried foods everyday, smoke two packs a day and drink a six-pak of tallboys every night and I'm going to outlive you all, and still leave a good looking corpse. It's all genetics and attitude.

no trans-fats in New York

Lousy commies. There'll be an underground network set up within a month.

A Texas Burger? I just had one a couple weeks ago at Paul's. with bacon.

One the one hand, that looks genuinely delicious.

On the other, I just threw up in my mouth a little.

Homer: See Marge, I told you they could deep-fry my shirt.
Marge: I didn't say they couldn't, I said you *shouldn't*.


"We take eighteen ounces of sizzling ground beef, and soak it in rich, creamery butter, then we top it off with bacon, ham, and a fried egg. We call it the Good Morning Burger."

Lisa: No, I can't! I can't eat any of them!
Homer: Wait a minute, wait a minute, wait a minute. Lisa, honey, are you saying you're never going to eat any animal again? What about bacon?
Lisa: No.
Homer: Ham?
Lisa: No.
Homer: Pork chops?
Lisa: Dad! Those all come from the same animal!
Homer: [chuckles] Yeah, right, Lisa. A wonderful, magical animal.

Bacon is mankind's greatest invention.

I mean, the wheel was pretty cool.. but it's not as tasty as bacon.

I got some smokey bacon cheddar cheese from a store in Minnesota. Mmmm cheese.

Oh god, I fried stuff like that last weekend and I swear, I nearly died. I don't know which was worse, the bacon wrapped hotdogs or the little debbie swiss cake rolls. It was the worst hangover/food poisoning/stomach bug of my life. I'll never look at a deep fryer again, so help me jebus.

Dude, grill up a bison burger, pt some of that cheese on then top with some of that chicken fried bacon and a little A1 and serve it on texas toast and we'll have reached gustatory nirvana.

Mmmmmmm.... Sodolak's. When I was in college near there, we would go because it was the only place that we knew where we could afford a steak dinner. The leftovers would feed us for days. Even though I'm vegetarian now, that still made my mouth water a bit.

I just threw up a little in my mouth, coated it with egg and flour, and deep fried it in chicken fat.

Forget the bacon, I was floored by the shots of the cooks' hands all over the food. Hands on the steak, hands on the onion rings, in the batter, and then in the breading, hands on the bacon, bacon breaded by hand, hands on the fries; all with no gloves. The cooks only use utensils for scooping things out of the fryer and for ladling out to cream gravy.

I can understand challenging culinary expectations, but why flaunt health codes so flagrantly?

Genetics and attitude. More specifically, the genetics that don't cause you to develop an enormous pot belly, and the attitude that says "I'm developing an enormous pot belly, time to get some exercise and stop eating bacon with cream gravy."

I love that all those Texans eating that crap were fat as hell. Serves them right.

Thankfully, I take after my old man, who's 61 and potbelly free after a life of meat, potatoes, and cigarettes. And my attitude is that health nuts are gonna feel real stupid sitting in the old folks home dying of nothing (thanks, Redd Foxx), so bring it on.

Holy sanctimonious vilifying schadenfreude, Batman. Serves them right for what - being Texan?

Oh my goodness. Time to fire up the hot oil and give this a shot. Yes, it may be unhealthy and greasy and artery-clogging, but on the other hand it is GOD DAMNED DEEP-FRIED BACON.

#Greg Nog: it is GOD DAMNED DEEP-FRIED BACON.

I'm sorry to burst your bubble, but it is common for cooks to deep fry raw bacon if no cooked bacon is available

For example, I once spent a long stint in the Blue Cube at Onizuka Air Force Station in Sunny Vale, Ca. Once off shift I was very hungry so I headed to the nearby Officers Club. I had drank so much coffee that the only thing that might coexist in my stomach was a BLT. The cook said "no problem" and dropped 3 rashers into the deep-fryer. The BLT wasn't bad though I wished the oil had been more recently changed.

PS: to the NSA and terrorist organazations: The only secrets I saw there were numbers - designating numbers and frequencies. Since my job there had nothing to do with either I doubt that I remembered any of them a few days after I left or many year later like today.

You obviously don't watch cooking shows -- the high-end chefs and cooks they show there are always touching, prodding, manhandling and generally fondling every item on their three-star menus with out the benefit of gloves. It's almost as if the more you pay for food, the more the cook touches it with bare hands. If you want food untouched by human hands, hit the value menu at your local fast-food emporium.

posted by mistermoore at 8:59 PM on December 6, 2006


Having cooked in many restaurants, I will go as far as to say that most food that you've eaten in public has been touched by human hands, hopefully clean ones. Cook much? If you cook, you touch food.

That's not the least of it. Read Bourdain's first book. You'll never eat out again.

Oh, hey, I just realized that this place is about twenty minutes away from my sister's university. I've got to go and try it out... I don't know if my sister would be up to it though. Maybe I'll rope my best friend in to going. Or maybe I'll spend Christmas with my family instead of chasing down fried bacon dreams.

So, has anyone come up with a way to batter-fry beer? Get to work, inventors.
posted by jfuller at 4:52 AM on December 7, 2006


jfuller, they'd probably do it the same way they do "deep-fried Coke," which is to just fry some flavored batter and then douse it in the relevant liquid after taking it out of the fryer.

Chicken-fried Bacon... dee-licious!

Actually, it was disturbing how similar in flavor and texture it was to Doritos or other modern industrial snackcraft... makes me wonder what's in 'em. I think that CFB is what people close their eyes and pretend pork rinds taste like.
