That's right, not even the capsaicin-obsessed world of hot sauces is safe from the world-dominating power of pork. Bacon Hot Sauce ($6) melds the spicy red stuff with smoky bacon flavor, making it perfect for use on eggs, in salsas, chili, and bloody marys, especially when they're made with Bakon Vodka.
Ready to do some serious grilling but not ready to mix up the meat and ingredients yourself? Let BuiltBurger ($50/6-pack) take care of the work for you. Available in a variety of flavors with ingredients as varied as pork, roasted red peppers, cave-aged gruyere cheese, chorizo, panko, mint, short ribs, and fish sauce, these gourmet burgers arrive frozen and ready for cooking. We recently grubbed on some here at Uncrate HQ, and their tasty combinations outshone even the best brews we used for washing them down. [Thanks, Michael]
Despite the name, the products produced by Bourbon Barrel Foods ($5-$40) aren't necessarily bourbon-spiked versions of everyday items — although there are some of those in the collection. Instead, the company uses the same local-grown, small-batch, attentive processes that make Kentucky's bourbon the best known in the world. Standout offerings include Bluegrass Soy Sauce, Blueberry Sorghum, Kentuckyaki, and sweet/smokey Bourbon Smoked Paprika.
Need something to wash down that breakfast of Canned Bacon and english muffin with Bacon Jam? How about some bacon-flavored coffee? Torani Bacon Syrup ($7) is a sweet, smoky, salty syrup that can be used in everything from milkshakes to manhattans to give each drink a little pork. For the truly bold, mix with Bakon Vodka for a drink only a fast-food executive could love. [Thanks, Yama | via]
Add some crunchy spice to your favorite sandwich, salad, or spirit with Blaze's Beans ($11). These pickled green beans arrive in an all-natural brine of filtered water, sea salt, garlic, and other spices, and taste as good by themselves as they do in a mix. For those who prefer to drink your dinners, they also make a great garnish for a Bloody Mary or the yet-to-be-discovered Green Bean Martini.
