It’s been a weird past month for encased meats, huh? First there was the hot dog bomb scare in Philly, wherein the bomb squad was called in to deal with three suspicious-looking duct tape wrapped hot dogs. (Spoiler alert! They were just plain old hot dogs.)
Then, there was the incredibly bizarre story of a break-in in California, where the suspect rubbed spices into the face of one of his victims, and reportedly attacked the other with a sausage.
Most recently, the artist Banksy has set up an installation in New York city called “The Village Pet Store and Charcoal Grill.” (Hmm, sounds an awful lot like our favorite store in Western Massachusetts, Dave’s Soda and Pet City, which sells soda and pet supplies.) The exhibit has been getting a lot of buzz, but we first saw videos from it on Serious Eats. So how does this relate? Just watch the video, why don’t you!
