Picture this: it’s a Thursday afternoon and you’re driving home from work. Fortunately, traffic isn’t too brutal since you skipped lunch and decided to dip out a little early—you overachiever, you—and now you find yourself dying of hunger.
While dreaming about your 4:00 snack, trying to figure out what it will look like, you scan through the radio stations and land on 105.9 The Rock. “A Little Less Conversation” by the king of rock and roll himself Elvis Presley, begins streaming into your ears. You turn up the volume, tip-tapping your fingers to the beat on the steering wheel, and suddenly, in line with the music, you think to yourself, You know what would satisfy me?
But there’s an issue: you’re not trying to buy an entire pound of bacon for just one single sandwich. That would be ludicrous. Because then you’d either have to really amp up your bacon intake during the ensuing week, which would subsequently amp up your cholesterol levels as well, or you’d have to freeze the bacon, which really isn’t too great of an idea.
You think to yourself: you’ve got a loaf of bread at home; you might have enough Jif to scrape out the bottom of the jar; and you’re pretty certain you have a banana sitting in your fruit bowl that’s just about to pass its prime. But you’ve gotta have those two slices of bacon. And when it comes to making the King’s sandwich, one really shouldn’t cut corners.
That’s where we come in.
You see, the beauty of a butcher shop is that your product is both selected and sliced to sell. There are no prepackaged pounds of this, or shrink-wrapped pounds of that, but rather everything is cut exactly how you want it, exactly when you want it.
So just two or three slices of our delicious smoked bacon will absolutely do the trick and send you straight into a foodgasm. You’re welcome. Try it on a loaf of your favorite Bobby John Henry’s variety, schmear a glob of Big Spoon Roasters’ deliciously luscious peanut butter on both slices, and then fry it all up in that sinful rendered bacon fat: your Elvis Sandwich just became the King, my friend.
