Stunning news from the struggling publishing industry, via Eat Me Daily
: Jason Day and Aaron Chronister, who run the Web site BBQ Addicts
, signed a six-figure book deal with Scribner. Day and Chronister were responsible for popularizing -- though not necessarily creating -- the Bacon Explosion
, a gut-busting dish that involves rolling sausage and cooked bacon inside a lattice of raw bacon. Even more remarkably, according to the Pitch
, our sister paper in Kansas City, the cookbook won't even feature the dish that made them an Internet sensation. Owen Morris nabbed this quote from Chronister:
"Everybody knows that one. We want to share our own unique recipes... we're still putting them together and deciding what to do."
But I don't think anyone has summed this up better than another Pitch writer
, Peter Rugg:
Again, that's more money than most of us make in years of work to make America's asses even fatter.
