I got the idea for trying this product from the FiberglassRV forum. It sounded like a great solution for on-the-road quick bacon with minimal clean-up. It also sounded too good to be true. There are 4 slices per plastic-wrapped package that you place in the microwave. Then press the button just like Jane Jetson.
We tried it this afternoon with BLTs. Sorry, no photos - they went quick. I don't think there is a shutter speed fast enough to have captured it.
The end result was indeed quick, yummy, and surprisingly crispy. Bonus: clean-up was non-existent. Try that with your standard cast-iron-skillet approach. With shore power, I'm set for the kind of hearty breakfast I love (indoors or out).
In other news, the Weber gas grill experiment continues.

Friday night I fired the Go-Anywhere up and cooked up some 1" thick pork chops (with Grillmaster John close at hand of course). Getting the timing right was tricky but I think that's just the art and nature of successful grilling. We both agree, however, that charcoal wins the taste category outright. However, propane takes the blue ribbon for convenience.
I have a whole new respect for food photographers. This dish may not look very appetizing as photographed but you're just going to have to trust me - it was fabulous! BTW, we really like Bogle Zinfandel with grilled pork. And it's sensational with bar-b-que anything. The price is right too at about $11 or $12 a bottle.

Speaking of food, today John is trying out his new triple-loaf baguette pan from King Arthur Flour. He is experimenting to find the best size and shape. I'd say it's a successful start to a long and satisfying relationship. And we haven't even bitten through that golden crunchy crust yet!
Must dash, it's cocktail hour.
Happy Labor Day everyone!
