Up in various parts of Virginia, eating well. Spent some time with Ryan and Travis at Rappahannock River Oysters, and dare I say it, their Olde Salts may be even better than our beloved Apalachicolas. Also stopped by the Hot Dog King in Newport News for a chili dog, and then it was on to Comfort's second location in Portsmouth, for an unbelievable plate of Edwards of Surry County ham - pork so good, it's second only to our man Allan Benton. We also had a plate of 'schnitzel bites' at some German joint, caught Spoon in Norfolk, and ended up at the Do Nut Dinette for a scrapple and egg sandwich.

Bacon Of The Month Club - April

This month's shipment from the Bacon Of The Month club came today - a pound of J. Samuel Whiting Hickory Bacon, from Pennsylvania. According to the Grateful Palate:
"Sweet aroma, thin and crunchy. Perfect balance like a fine cut diamond. Sweet and powerful, almost fruity. Addictive, soft, lush, judicious use of fat and sublimely balanced. AWESOME and hedonistic. Very unique, sweet, yet savory bacon. Kids love all bacon, but they will especially love this bacon made by J. Samuel Whiting Meats in Pennsylvania."

A Trip to Nu-Way Weiners - Macon, GA

Managed to find a few minutes on a recent trip to Savannah to stop at Nu-Way Weiners in Macon. Delicious Cincinnati-style chili on top of neon-red dogs (I ate the chili dog before stopping just long enough to get a picture of the mustard dog below):
