Only in Australia: Bacon-Wrapped Alligator with a Whole Chicken in Its Mouth


Remember the cthuken? The festive Christmas dish featuring a chicken stuffed with octupus tentacles and garnished with bacon? Well, if you thought that land-to-beast main course was wild, Australia’s latest barbecue offering might rekindle your imagination. Spotted by @alixmcalpine, this unholy union packs an entire roasted chicken into the mouth of an entire bacon-wrapped alligator.

While the internet hasn’t unofficially named the 2-in-1 meal just yet, we have a few ideas. What do you call an alligator stuffed with an entire chicken? Hungry. Har har, we got dad jokes for days.

They’re right – I lived all over Oz for a couple years, this is not a freshwater croc or a Saltie… it’s an alligator, and they don’t have alligators in Australia. Also, bacon in Australia is generally the British type of rashers (not like that). Something is fishy here. The chick that our writer lifted this from isn’t the source either, she probably just candidly called it “Australia” because she’s not familiar…. I don’t think Charisma knows any better either.

Go one further. Wrap a pythong around the gator, wrap it in bacon too and put a suckling pig in the python’s mouth. Call it the Porkviathon.

That’s a gator, and it isn’t Louisiana or that chicken would be inside of a duck which would be inside of a turkey. That’s a baby gator too.
