A Manly way to Cook Bacon – the Machine Gun Method

There’s a new manly manly way that we discovered on cooking bacon. Yes, yes I know you’ve probably seen videos of the bacon wrapped around a barrel of an AR-15. Those videos are only showing the bacon getting burned from the heat of the barrel. Take a look at this method that we found on Reddit.

Here’s how to cook bacon the manly way. All you need are: bacon, tin foil, some string, and.. oh yeah, an old worn out 7.62mm machinegun that is about to be thrown out, and 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. Then wrap some more tin foil around it, and once again tie it down with string.
  3. It’s 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. Shoot 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. Here’s what it should look like, crispy delicious well done bacon.

Yep, all you need now are some spam and eggs from your C-rations. Oh for the younger generation its MRE’s (Meals Ready to Eat)

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