How to cook bacon with a machine gun

From an old Reddit post: I've discovered a new way of cooking bacon. All you need is: bacon, tin foil, some string, and.. oh whats it called?... oh yeah, an old worn out 7.62mm machine gun that is about to be discarded, and about 200 rounds of ammunition.

You start by wrapping the barrel in tin foil. Then you wrap bacon around it, and tie it down with some string.

You then wrap some more tin foil around it, and once again tie it down with string.

It is now ready to be inserted into the cooking device. I ripped the tin foil a little bit getting the barrel inserted. That part of the bacon got severely burned by hot gasses.

After just a few short bursts you should be able to smell the wonderful aroma of bacon.

I gave this about 250 rounds. but I think around 150 might actually be enough. But then again I don't mind when bacon is crispy. Ahh the smell of sizzling bacon mixed with the smell of gunpowder and weapon oil.

And the end result: Crispy delicious well done bacon.


  1. That's an MG-42! Surely, they would not discard this marvelous piece of history.

  2. Wouldn't the lead residue from the bullet primers contaminate the bacon?

    1. Notice that the bacon is wrapped around the barrel exterior ...


  3. that is actually an MG-3, the 7.62 NATO variant of the MG42 but functionally identical except for caliber
