Here’s How You Can Cook Bacon By Using a Machine Gun

Bacon 1

Well this is certainly one type of cooking technique that you’ll never see any chef on the Food Channel use. A Reddit user, Oelund, gave instructions (with pictures included), showing the internet how you can cook bacon using a machine gun.

Here’s what the original post looks like:

I’ve discovered a new way of cooking bacon. All you need is: bacon, tin foil, some string, and.. oh whats it called?… oh yeah, an old worn out 7.62mm machinegun that is about to be discarded, and about 200 rounds of ammunition.

You start by wrapping the barrel in tin foil. Then you wrap bacon around it, and tie it down with some string.

Bacon 1

you then wrap some more tin foil around it, and once again tie it down with string.

Bacon 2

It is now ready to be inserted into the cooking device. I ripped the tin foil a little bit getting the barrel inserted. that part of the bacon got severely burned by hot gasses.

Bacon 3

After just a few short bursts you should be able to smell the wonderful aroma of bacon.

Bacon 4

I gave this about 250 rounds. but I think around 150 might actually be enough. But then again I don’t mind when bacon is crispy. Ahh the smell of sizzling bacon mixed with the smell of gunpowder and weapon oil.

Bacon 5

And the end result: Crispy delicious well done bacon.

Bacon 6

While this is certainly one of the most manliest things I’ve ever seen (something I could certainly see Ron Swanson doing on Parks and Rec), I don’t know how good the bacon would actually taste, especially with “the smell of gunpowder and weapon oil.” For me, at least, no matter how cool or interesting or unique this way of cooking may be, bacon (and food in general, really) is best cooked and served in your actual kitchen than anywhere else. Call me boring, but I’ll stick with my frying pan the next time I’m making breakfast.
