Ooh, can you smell that smell???
I can smell it now!!
The delicious aroma of bacon

And some people have taken it upon themselves to unravel the mystery to the tantalizing smell



The American Chemical Society, together with chemistry blog Compound Interest, has cooked up a video to explain the science behind the amazing smell.

It’s a lot of science, but to put it simply, when you throw bacon in the pan, sugars react to the amino acids in the bacon, in what’s called Maillard’s reaction.

Then, the reaction combines with the melting fats to produce 150 aroma compounds that combine to produce the magical smell.

Compound Interest created this infographic to explain the process and the compounds involved.

Food for thought: Why bacon smells SO yummy




And get this you bacon lovers...
There’s actually an app for IPhone lets you wake up to the smell of bacon

With the Oscar Meyer Wake Up & Smell the Bacon app & accessory for the IPhone
You set your alarm, attach the gadget into your phone, and when your alarm goes off, it lets out the bacon-y aroma and a sizzling smell

Sweeet! Now you don't actually have to get out of bed to cook it....unless you're hungry. LOL

Bacon anyone?!

The flesh from pigs is very similar to humans, in fact tattoo artists practice on pig skin. Our ancient ancestors were cannibals and our underlying primate brain still detects the scent. Yeah ok I probably just made that up.

You don't know what you are missing. They run like rats on the Gulf Coast of Texas. A good dog and knife and you can pick them like apples. A smoked up piglet is the platinum of meats. It's like bacon of the gods.

Are we talking about piglets or human bacon?...

I honestly read that at first as a reply to my human bacon comment...I imagined people running about and you getting them lol.
Odd mood today.


I once tried to be a veggie when younger to get in a girls knickers and the thing that brought me back was the smell of Bacon

Ain't got any pigs in my neck of the woods mate unless I move up to Brittany.

Tell you what... how about this... :

You send me (or we meet up and swap) the following :

2 kg of smokey bacon strips against 12 bottles of Red Champagne or whatever wine takes your fancy (don't forget I have a vineyard over here?)

U2U me if interested... 25 years I have been in France and I have not had real bacon... its worse than an ATS posting ban???

When Cody came across he brought me my first midget gems and REAL pork pies in over 25 years... SAD OR WHAT?

I lie, I took one of my clients to Bath last year (a Spanish client)... we pigged out on Bacon, Crumpets and Fish and Chips...)

Now... how do I get all this snot and dribble of my keyboard without electrocuting myself?

Kindest respects

"Are we talking about piglets or human bacon?..."

Meat's meat and a man's got to eat. No, seriously, the feral hogs are a pest in this area. I heard the state has started hiring people to exterminate them. They are an invasive species and very destructive to farms.
Is your avatar meant to be a metaphor? That bad monkey is going to rub that pussy raw. He may need a spanking.
