Thanks to meateater for notifying me of the recent wikipedia update on this thread.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bacon_Explosion
As of now this is what is what is posted on wikipedia...History and originJason Day and Aaron Chronister posted the dish in December 2008 on their "BBQ Addicts" blog. It quickly became an internet phenomenon, generating more than 500,000 hits and 16,000 links to the blog, and was even included on political blogs because "Republicans like meat." There are fan clubs and follow-up videos of various attempts to create the dish.The inventors are experienced barbecue competition participants from Kansas City, and compete in cook-offs as the Burnt Finger BBQ team. According to the Telegraph, "They came up with the delicacy after being challenged on Twitter to create the ultimate bacon recipe." They christened their innovation the "Bacon Explosion: The BBQ Sausage Recipe of all Recipes."The Bacon Explosion is similar to a number of previously published recipes, and Day and Chronister do not claim to have invented the concept. Earlier in December 2008, Headless Blogger posted a recipe for the "Ultimate Fattie", which is made of sausage, chili pepper, pepperoni, and muenster cheese rolled into a bacon lattice. This concoction was inspired by a bacon and cheese roll (again, lattice-based) posted by a user on the Foodroll blog.The word "inventors" is still there. But I'm happy that at least now it's referenced that there are "previously published recipies". I was working hard to get http://www.smoking-meat.com/ and the SMF referenced, but no such luck.
Victory? I think so.
Edit: So let this be a note to all of you who think you've created something truly unique that could someday be considered a phenomenon, get some sort of proof that you invented it. Apparently they think that there needs to be some form of media interest for this proof. So get your local newspaper to do a story on you.
