Cold Day = Bacon, Black-Bean Chili

Well it is very cold outside — even in Atlanta, Georgia.  When it’s cold — it’s time for one of our favorite household recipes which is Bacon, Black-Bean Chili.  If you happen to be a chili fan, this is a recipe you’ll love.  I usually add some extra jalapeno and every once in a while, I’ll inlcude smoked brisket as the meat.

Here’s the recipe from Food.com.  And here’s a good one for the brisket style from epicurious.com.

How to Make Your Own Bacon – Bdub’s Bacon Guide

It’s an honor and a privilege to make the first bacon post here on Agile Bacon, my good friend’s Brian Watson (a.k.a. Bdub as well as @agilebdub) Guide to making your own bacon. Bdub’s Bacon Guide is a simple 12-step process to making homemade bacon. OK, 13 steps if you include the beer — and you should make sure to include the beer.

In reading, Bdub provides guidance to ensure the best flavors are achieved. He does this through the right mix of humor and pragmatic experience that shows he cares about your outcomes. The guide is well illustrated, and by simply looking through it — you should be inspired to go off and make your own bacon (or at lest hungry enough to go buy some).

You can download the guide here.
