Everything is better with bacon! I plan on spraying some bacon flavor on a few of my wrapper leaves once the time comes. I know it sounds crazy but it's more of an experiment, joke, and novelty thing. People buy bacon flavored soap and gum so this wouldn't be too far off. Anyone ever hear of this or have any thoughts? :shock: :D

sounds like a fun thing to try with a few leaves .. only question is how to add the flavour to the tobacco ?? will you use artificial bacon flavour ??

Not sure yet but I know they make a million different bacon flavored products including sprays so I may be able to use that.

Mmmm, bacon :D Good idea! Perhaps you should fry some bacon in oil (something without taste) and then let it cool a bit, filter it a few times and spray it on the cigar. Just not too much, you dont want your cigar to burst into flames :)

you migth be able to extract the flavour using alcohol or some other type of solvent and add it without adding the grease or oil to the tobacco ..

In Buffalo Bird Woman's Diary, she described how the old men in her Hidatsa Indian tribe used to dry the tobacco blossoms, then lightly fry them in buffalo grease, before smoking them. Bacon or buffalo, it doesn't sound all that nice.

Wise choice. If I had to flavor, it will be with chocolate or/and licorice.

i tried some sambuca on a few leaves and it tastet good eventhough the leaves wasn't done fermenting and i guess i used to much sambuca too anyway i will add things like brown sugar and a few other things to see what i can get out of the flavouring ..

Since I did not discard this idea (I had thought about it for fun and packed it away, but when I saw this threat about a month ago I thought "Why not for fun....?") I have actually searched a bit, and I found two methods that seems realtivly simple:

Zest Chokolat tells about "making your own flavor extracts" - mainly for baking and cooking I presume, and tells about how she makes bacon extract;
Cook some bacon, add the grease in a mason jar, then add vodka, shaken - not stirred and put it dark and cool for some days. Then put it even colder (freezer) for some weeks, strain and pour...:
http://zestchocolat.blogspot.dk/2012/06 ... racts.html

Betty Cooker have a similar princip, but is faster, and is based on making your own bacon infused vodka (which is what Zest Chokolat is making - but maybe stronger flavoured):
http://www.bettycrocker.com/How-To/Tips ... used-Vodka

I hope it will be useful for any of you! :) I think it will take some years before I can start on mine sadly (the relative low life time might be an issue for me to harvesting tobacco, curing it and flavouring it before the extract "dies".

... Maybe.... hmm... Is there a way to infuse a finished cigar?
I have some cheap cigar called "Original Columbo" or so, very long guys, but does not seem to be high quality cigars; maybe I can give those guys a bacon infusing post-rolled? Any ideas on how?
