Meh. The Baconator is kinda dull. I will admit that the enhanced "Spicy Baconator" does come close.. it is similar, but just isn't the same. I think it has some kind of chipotle sauce, and the sauce on the P.J.B.C. was totally different, because chipotle didn't exist back then. It was invented by fast food places circa 2002 I believe, who at the time had no idea how to pronounce it properly. They would say it as if the L came before the T, which annoyed me greatly. But things have gotten much better now.
I'm the same way. I could live without the bacon. It's the jalapenos and cheese which draws me to that one..
Recently they had a jalapeno cheddar melt which was also quite good and I think it had unnecessary bacon too.
In truth, I'm not supposed to have anything spicy. I'm prone to major chest pain episodes due to digestive problems. I call them my little 'jalapeno heart attacks'. It costs the taxpayers of this great nation way too much money only to send me home with Mylanta. (or Maalox)
This is a great thread.
The only problem I have with this "so-called" Baconator is that the bacon is too-damned thin. Kinda like that Burger King stacker. You know its there, but you have to look down at the sandwich to make sure.
It is absolutely ridiculous what some burger joints are doing to bacon. It doesn't need to be that thin OR that expensive as a side. It should be like adding cheese, ya know?
So I would definitely include a Bacon Rider on that petition, just to cover everything.

See, I like the bacon and very well. I just like to take it off and eat it first. Its a quirk I suppose, but I just like the way bacon tastes with nothing else getting in the way. I love bacon. In fact, if I were free from ego and health concerns and thus able to get Elvis fat if I wanted, when I went to the movies, instead of eating popcorn, I would eat tubs of very crispy bacon.
