World Record Bacon Sandwich


A bacon sandwich is good anytime, but August s the best time for BLTs, when local tomatoes are at their peak. At the fifth annual Tomato Fest in St. Louis, Tom Coghill and 90 volunteers put together a BLT that stretched 179 feet, two inches, breaking the world record for the biggest bacon, lettuce, and tomato sandwich. They used 500 pounds of bacon, 1,280 pounds of tomatoes, and 100 heads of lettuce. Link -via Digg

How would you find an oven to bake one piece of bread 179 feet long. Even if Granite City Steel would allow you to use their ovens You'd never be able to move it as one piece.
Besides this was a Charity event for Lift for Life not a Guinness world record attempt.
Great job for a Great Cause wish I could have been there.

"gloves - I for one dont want some sweaty volunteer touching my sandwich"

The vegetable guy at the restaurant kitchen I once worked in sweated out about a gallon a day. From what I could see, most of it was served up to customers on the plates he was preparing. It would drip off the tip of his nose like a leaky faucet.
