I'm Back! 
And what better way to come back to Barrel Proof than with an uncut/unfiltered opinion on Bacon. The man on the left is Allan Benton, aka King Bacon. Here he is putting the rap on a group at Restaurant Eugene in Atlanta. A former guidance counsler, Allan makes country ham and bacon in little ol' Madisonville, TN. Check out www.bentonshams.com. We received a "sample" for One Flew South (more about that later) and you can smell the smoke through the cryovac. Allan buys heirloom pigs, like Berkshires, and does little more than add salt and smoke and let then let it do its thing. Viva le Cochon!

Man... there's photos of you and your porker tattoo all over the internet at the Blais dinner at McCrady's.
