    I just went back to the page and it said I had a message...
    Hi, regarding this edit, forums are not considered reliable sources for verification of facts on Wikipedia. I have reverted your edit, if you wish to add that it was invented prior to its "mainstream success" you will require something in a newspaper, magazine, peer reviewed journal, book etc. that verifies it. Cheers. --kelapstick (talk) 22:41, 1 February 2010 (UTC)

    I need to find a work around.

    Whoever the jacka$$ was that removed my edit to the wikipedia page I just sent him this...

    I saw that you removed my edit on the Bacon Explosion page. You state that a forum is not considered a reliable source. I disagree as all of the threads are dated and contain photographic documentation of the creation therefore proving of their existance. I personally (and many others that I know) have made things very similar to the Bacon Explosion and long before their claim that they invented it. is one of the most highly respected forums on the topic of smoking meats and other food related items. This forum is a component of which is the number one ranked smoking meat website on Google. This should provide proof enough for you please reinstate my edit made earlier today. Your reply would be appreciated. You can reach me at [email protected]

    I scrolled down the link to the explosion on bbq addicts and their last post for it was back in Dec 2008 - maybe it didn't take off like they thought _LOL

    Hey did I ever tell you guys about the time I invented a stuffed jalapenio wrapped in bacon?

    good work dude, this whole situation is bull.
  10. saying you invented the fatty is like saying you invented the T-bone steak.

    Web sites are also not reliable sources either. Anyone can claim or say whatever they wish and get away with it.
    They need to show us their proof for their accusations that they invented it. If that maybe, we all could be in deep crap for infrindgment. LOL
    I say we all pitch in with dude and try to help in some form.

    Thanks to meateater for notifying me of the recent wikipedia update on this thread.
    As of now this is what is what is posted on wikipedia...

    History and origin

    Jason Day and Aaron Chronister posted the dish in December 2008 on their "BBQ Addicts" blog.[3] 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."[1][2][4] There are fan clubs and follow-up videos of various attempts to create the dish.[2]
    The inventors are experienced barbecue competition participants from Kansas City, and compete in cook-offs as the Burnt Finger BBQ team.[2] According to the Telegraph, "They came up with the delicacy after being challenged on Twitter to create the ultimate bacon recipe."[2] They christened their innovation the "Bacon Explosion: The BBQ Sausage Recipe of all Recipes."[2]
    The Bacon Explosion is similar to a number of previously published recipes, and Day and Chronister do not claim to have invented the concept.[1] 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.[5] This concoction was inspired by a bacon and cheese roll (again, lattice-based) posted by a user on the Foodroll blog.[5][6]

    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 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.

    I'm wondering what documentation the gents provided to be included on Wiki in the first place. Maybe they "own" a desktop publishing company, too.[​IMG]

    Smoking sausage like this has been around a long long time, but the last time this topic came up I did some digging and found a post on 4/20/ a different forum where the name fatty was clearly suggested.

    Have yet to see anything older than this for the use of fatty to describe this creation.

    Are we missing the one element that allows them to claim they invented it? They never claimed to have invented the fatty, they claim to have invented the Bacon Explosion. For that, if they can sell it for $30 a pop, more power to 'em!
  18. This sounds like the same kind of deal like that idiot claiming to have invented the internet! If they come up with a Global Warming theory, we can get Gore to sue them for infringement.

    Ok for one of yours I would pay $19.95
  20. I'm with ya! If I could have started selling them for $30 a pop you bet your sweet butt I would. There are plenty of chumps out there that view themselves as manly men yet couldn't beat their way out of a wet paper bag that would gladly pay $30 for one.
