Why America is fat

Because we hold up the turducken as a crowning thanksgiving achievement (right alongside the deep-fried turkey).

 

BUT we can't leave it at that, oh no. So we take this ridiculous monstrosity and add BACON to it. Creating the turbaconducken:

I shit you not.

Wow...that is just wrong on so many levels...ewwwwwwww...and I do not get the fried turkey thing either but whatever...

Have a great weekend!

Brandy - yeah, 'wrong' is what popped into my head when I saw it. Looking at the instructions for creating this THING totally reinforced that image.

Now all they need to do is deep fry this thing and the artery-clogging revolution will be complete. :)

You have yourself a great weekend as well. :)

I have had a deep-fried turkey and found it to be no different than oven-baked. I guess the appeal must be in the shorter cooking time.

Catalyst - I always figured that the appeal was for guys to go outside, setup a big ass fryer, and watch meat bubble away. :)

You just can't go wrong if you wrap something in bacon. Hell, I regularly wrap my bacon sandwich in bacon.

It's just so much better that way.

The only thing that I like about the deep fried turkey is that it is more moist than a regular turkey.

Of course the "moisture" is actually grease, but hey, it's still moist.

Dude...that is nuts. Perhaps we can just bread and deep fry everything from now on?

PS...I'm sitting here having a few M&M Peanut Butter before I go out to dinner with some friends...at least they're not deep fried?!

Mike - Admit it: it's that dog of yours that convinced you to make bacon-wrapped bacon sandwiches, right? She knows how to get the good stuff. :)

Sadira - You might have the next biggest craze with deep-fried peanut butter!
