A new TV series premiered tonight on the Discovery Channel - Destination America. "The United States of Food"

Sunday, 7/22, it's The United States of Steaks. 
The Bacon episode was terrific. Watch for a re-run if you didn't see it!
Some of you may have been to some of these places.
If not, put it on your bucket list!
United States of Bacon
Premieres Sunday, July 8 at 10 PM E/P

Bacon is undeniably, irrefutably one of America's most favorite foods. But long gone are the days when all that greasy goodness was restricted to a measly side order at breakfast. Today, America is taking bacon to a wild, new extreme that has it popping up in meals and on menus you'd never expect and in ways your taste buds have only dreamed.
The show opened with a 1 # BLT from Tony's I-75 Restaurant in Birch Run MI.

Chef Todd Fisher samples bacon burgers at Slaters 50/50 in Huntington Beach, Cal., learns how NYC's Crif Dogs crafts their bacon-wrapped hot dogs, nibbles a bacon and chocolate ice cream sandwich at Big Gay Ice Cream, and halts traffic to taste test the Bacon Bacon Truck's bacon jam-filled grilled cheese in San Francisco. These aren't just restaurants or eateries. They're bacon temples. One man. One country. One strip of bacon at a time.
A must watch for Bacoholics!
