This is some amazing video right here. These proud Idahoans skewered strips of bacon on the tines of a pitchfork and submersed the whole mess into a vat of boiling oil. All I can say is wow. That is some backwoods ingenuity. The bacon on the far end is something weird…I think they said beef bacon? At any rate, it didn’t stand up to the heat as well as the traditional pork belly. Let this be a lesson to all you haters. Pork is the word.
