WHY IT WORKS
"The smoked bacon is the perfect combination of salt, smoke, spicy black peppercorns and fatty porcine Ohio pork belly," says Sawyer. "The Dohar family has been smoking meats for more than 70 years at the West Side Market."
"The sausage is the main ingredient in this dish, which no doubt makes it sell so well," says Bonning. "The Pork Chop Shop makes the sausage specifically for us. It's a perfect combination of sweet, savory and salty. It's just a giant hug in the morning."
"It has a bit of smokiness that sets it apart from standard rum and ginger drinks," says Konkoski. "Guests always want to know how we got the mildly smoky flavor into their cocktail. We don't have a smoker in the kitchen, so it makes our life easier."
