Nothing says 'Merica like bacon. 

"What was that? I was just putting the finishing touches on my bacondor."

"I'm married to a bacon baron." 

Now, combine bacon and firearms ... that's patriotism, baby. 

"So much America right now. ... Aw, yeah."

That was Dustin Ellermann

If he looks familiar, that's because he won season three of the competitive shooting series "Top Shot." 

Ellermann cooked the bacon on a Gemtech TREK 5.56 mm suppressor, according to the YouTube description. The bacon was heated by firing around 90 rounds on his M16.
