Two days ago the Giants lost their season opener to the Dallas Cowboys. An unfortunate start to the season and a topic I know little about. The fortunate part of the day was the play by play meat fest that came across my iPhone as the two fools below tailgated them selves into a protein and bacon maple beer stupor. I’ve know Dave and Ian for a solid 20 years now. Of the many adventures we’ve had, this is one I am sad I missed.
Tailgating for these two Giants fanatics is serious business. It starts at 8am and doesn’t end until game time, 5 hours later. For the occasion, Ian decided to craft this sausage stuffed pork loin. But, that wasn’t enough. He felt it needed more pig and the lattice bacon stocking provided the perfect smokey fix to the naked loin. Obviously I didn’t taste it but with the internal sausage and external bacon in play he created a fat infusing sandwich. That pork loin could have been cooked to hell and still be juicy as lucy with all that melted lard around it. Of course, that’s not what happened. The loin was cooked to perfection and the sliced medallions were scarfed up like candy. PIG candy! Hopefully, for me, next time I am present for this Meatopia. Hopefully, for them, next time the Giants win.
