I tried something new this week: before roasting a chicken I separated the skin from the meat and slid in 2 slices of bacon.

Not bad at all.

Have also done this with herbs and butter slices.

Ok, I haven't read this whole thread, but recently I tried Vosges brand chocolate embedded with real bacon bits. Not bad, but not great either. Made me wonder about dipping whole fresh bacon slices in chocolate though. Anyone tried it?

I just ate a Chili's Southern Smokehouse Bacon Big Mouth Burger. That's a mouthful to say and to eat. Delicious. I could have had the Smokehouse Bacon Triple The Cheese Big Mouth Burger, but I wasn't hungry. No chocolate on either.

I've made them 3 times so far and no matter how many I make, we somehow eat them.

Batch #1 was just cream cheese, seasonings and chopped green onion. Batch number 2 added some jimmy dean bulk sausage. Batch number 3 had diced chicken/pineapple sausage.

I've evolved from the 'pretty' approach of taking the tops off and scooping out the seeds and then stuffing and wrapping to the 'efficient' approach of halving them, seeding and stuffing, and then laying half a strip of bacon over the top to seal it.

The whole jimmy dean sausage chub, covered in a dry rub, and hucked in the smoker is also a keeper. Made a whole brisket, 2 racks of ribs, a dozen pineapple sausages, the poppers and a spicy fattie yesterday. We'll be eating it for a week...

Now the important question is whether the meat comes out shaped like the can, or whether the can was created in the image of the meat.

Bacon should only be wrapped around another animal product. Or around more bacon.
