What would make bacon better? That’s like asking how Meryl Streep could become a better actress. Bacon is already so dang good. The best.

Burgers with Joule

 

 

Picture this: It’s the first barbecue of the summer, and you’ve got 30 guests gulping beers in the backyard. And then there’s you. An hour into the event, you’re still stuck behind the grill, sweating beneath your novelty apron, flipping burgers a few at a time, and worrying about who is getting fed and who isn’t.
