100 Foot Rolls of Bacon

Continuous strip of bacon on a 100 foot roll.

  [vote for,

Actual strips of real bacon could be lightly fused to a removable backing paper strip that is 100 ft. long. The grease of the bacon would secure it to a wax paper strip. The bacon would be placed end to end forming a continuous strip. When rolled up it would become a wheel of bacon approximately 18 inches in diameter. A simple cardboard enclosure would minimize the handling of the bacon and be suitable for proper storage and dispensing. Just remove the box of bacon from the fridge, and pull out the length of bacon you need and cut with a pair of kitchen shears or a knife. The bacon would be pre-cooked and would only need to be reheated.

       If it's cooked the way I like it, then it's too crispy and shrivelled to roll up.
Cedar Park, Sep 10 2003

       the smell of fried bacon is bordering on - umm, ecstasy. gotta give this a -1 sorry

       hops? I have noticed Rods, that your language is full of beer references these days   

       [Cedar] sniff sniff, hmmm <dribble></drool> thank you.

Yuk. I'll have to vote against any idea which advocates bad cooking practices.
custardlove, Sep 10 2003

       Pre-cooked bacon would be bad, but if it was uncooked then this could be a good idea for restaurants, greasy spoons etc.
suctionpad, Sep 10 2003

       Can it be used in conjunction with super long bread (see link, esp. [pluterday]'s last annotation)?   

       Sounds revolting though.Why does it have to be pre-cooked? Bacon only takes a couple of minutes to do anyway.
If it was raw it could be handy. I like my bacon sliced pretty thin and the slices always stick to each other and tear when I pull them apart. Being raw, of course, the roll should be shorter to prevent it going off before you can eat it all.
squeak, Sep 10 2003

       mmmm squeaky bacon :)
po, Sep 10 2003

       I'd like to see this without the paper backing. That way I can drop the whole 100 ft roll into my deep fryer for a real meal.   

       <homer>Mmmmm...giant fried bacon rolls.</homer>
grip, Sep 10 2003

       I like it- if you backed it top and bottom with absorbent paper you could cut the strips and pop them straight into the microwave. If we can have 2- ply toilet paper we can have 3ply papertowels with *new-and-improved* bacon center
avgourmet, Sep 10 2003

       That's one large pig.
RayfordSteele, Sep 10 2003

DeathNinja, Sep 10 2003

       For true bacon lovers, you could lie the roll on its side, fry it like a burger then put it in a monster bun.
bungston, Sep 10 2003

       [bungston] Just look what you did to my keyboard, its full of drool now!   

       Could we cut the bacon from 100ft long pigs to eliminate the risk of gaps or breakage between slices? Didn't the Kzinti in Larry Nivens books grow their meat from vats? No more pigs, just endless rolls of bacon. I don't want a croissant with that, you can have mine.
kbecker, Sep 10 2003

       Now all we need is a 100 foot tube of grits [link], and we're set.
Amos Kito, Sep 10 2003

       For true bacon lovers, they could just lie on their side, gobbling up the bacon as if its a large piece of spaghetti.
(Should "100 Foot Rolls of Bacon" be made with 100 trotters?)
Jinbish, Sep 11 2003

       Once upon a time there were twenty-five pigs with wooden legs...
FarmerJohn, Sep 11 2003

       I've always been meaning to ask someone American. What *are* grits, when they're at home?
squeak, Sep 11 2003

       Amos has given you a link, squeaky.
po, Sep 11 2003

       So, like, lumpy wallpaper paste? MMmm!
squeak, Sep 11 2003

       I imagine this could be efficiently achieved by setting up a partitioned room. In one half of the room are the pigs and in the middle, forming the partition bit, is a large mangle. In the other half of the room, dangling down from the ceiling is a truffle tied to a piece of string. When the piggies snuffle up to the partition to try and get at the lovely truffle, the bacon operative quickly turns the handle of the mangle, trapping the snouty bit of the pig and drawing it into the flattening device. He is then free to roll out the pig to the desired length and thickness.
DrBob, Sep 11 2003

       and consume with the mushrooms that DrBob has been eating.
po, Sep 11 2003

       Dr Bob has made the sadly all to common mistake of a vegetarian and confused sausage, such as the lovely Mortadella, with Bacon. Sausage = all the pig, Bacon = slices.
Seagull, Sep 11 2003

       no mistake, no sweat.
po, Sep 11 2003

       Sure [Seagull] - but you could roll out piggie and then slice it into bacon. The longer the slice the thinner you roll out piggie, assuming you do a lateral cut.   

       BTW, how do you know that [DrBob] is a vegetarian?
PeterSilly, Sep 11 2003

       its a vicious rumour
po, Sep 11 2003

       Yeah, come on 'Seagull', fess up!

Anyhow, under my system the pig is just turned into one very large slice so = bacon. So there!
DrBob, Sep 11 2003

       I never said that DrBob, an inventor and social commentator of note, was a vegetarian. I pointed out that his category confusion was one that a vegatarian would make.   

       If the mangle and extruder then rolled the pig-meat along though a five day smkoing and curing process we may be closer. Alternatively, pull the pig through a hole too narrow for its hips and sided with a whirling blade. The slices become fuel for the 100ft bacon strip, the body for something else, reactor sheilding maybe to improve shelf life.
Seagull, Sep 11 2003

       It seems to me that if he is a vegetarian, [Dr Bob] has made the sadly all too common mistake of a vegetarian suggesting that we put a pig through a mangle.
squeak, Sep 11 2003

       You make it then we can re-engineer a bio-diessel car to run on roll bacon. "The only pollutant is the yummy smell of cooked bacon and remnant bacon pieces trailing the car".
kamenmann, Sep 11 2003

       "WHEEL! OF! BACON!" Sorry, couldn't resist.
Tabbyclaw, Mar 10 2006

       //mmmm squeaky bacon// Squeak, squeak. (slice, slice) Squeak!! Squeak!! (slice, hack) SQUEAK!!! SQUEAK!!   

       Sorry, Po :-).
spidermother, Mar 10 2006

       The roll should be mounted on a spike like a kebab (dead man's leg style). Instead of being rotated against a heating element, the roll of (uncooked) bacon would rotate against a U-shaped refridgerator coil.   

       This would be fantastic, highly bakeable and actually bloody practical for those portable burger trucks (the kind that park in the carparks of big DIY stores on saturday mornings). The cook would stand in front of an array of gently rotating stands - nice image, no?
rubyminky, Mar 10 2006

       SIGN ME UP! SEND ME A ROLL! I will order the special dispenser and make bacon for the masses!
Jscotty, Mar 10 2006

       I'm not sure what the idea is here... is it basically a more convenient bacon roll?
vincevincevince, Oct 06 2007

       Perhaps one could freeze the pig and then use a continuous veneer cutter?
