Cooking Some Bacon – The Machine Gun Method

Making breakfast couldn’t get any more manly:

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.

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

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

3) 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.

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

5) 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.

6) And the end result: Crispy delicious well done bacon.

He should have bust some eggs downrange onto a hot skillet, or shot some oranges to make some juice!

The gun appears to be a German Rheinmetall MG 3 Machine gun.  It’s rate of fire is approximately 1150 rounds /min.

Too bad I don’t have anything with a high enough rate of fire to try this :(  I guess could work on my bump firing skills…. I can see it now “Bump Fire Bacon”!
