The-Better-Bacon-Book

If you were to write a list of all the potentially manly things a person could do, reading a cookbook would probably not be on it. Outside of gramma’s secret cheesecake recipe (which you’ve never been able to get quite right), the solution to any cooking queries is normally just to add more bacon. The Better Bacon Book is a manly cookbook. Yes, it exists. It has 20 HD videos, 150 hi-res photos and 31 original recipes from top chefs that cover everything from Pancetta to Pork Belly to Bacon Crème brûlée. You might be wondering how they got a video describing the process of creating a DIY smoker for less than $100 into a cookbook, and they did it by putting it on the iPad. This could very well be the Bacon Bible.

Pappy-Van-Winkle-Hot-Sauce

Pappy Van Winkle is the name in bourbon. Bottles have sent drinkers on wild goose chases and left others with empty bank accounts. While we can’t help you procure any of that elusive elixir, we can bring a little Pappy into your life in another way. Pappy Van Winkle Hot Sauce is aged in actual Pappy Van Winkle bourbon barrels. The distillery teamed with friends at Midland Ghost to make this flavorful hot sauce, which features the latter’s prized first generation Ghost Peppers. After the sauce was made, it was left to age in barrels that once held Pappy. That means you have a sauce that’s rich, oaky, and full of flavorful heat. Use it on meats, veggies, or, if you’re a special brand of crazy, just drink it straight from the bottle. It’s that good.
