Bacon Salt

Are you headed out to your grill this Labor Day weekend? We know two guys who hope you grab their condiment to flavor your fixin's: Bacon Salt. 


Justin Esch is from Telluride, CO, a place where bacon holds a special place in the hearts of many, and the home of a bourbon drink that features a slice of bacon dangling out of the glass like a garnish - the Mitch Morgan.

Justin got to chatting with his friend Dave Lefkow about his plan to create a way that everyone - and everything - can enjoy the taste of bacon, and soon  (One America's Funniest Home Video later), the two began their quest to create salt … that tastes like bacon.
