Yeah, but, yeah, but... Oh heck, I'm NYC born and Los Angeles raised, 
who's going to convince me that a deli in Mishugginah Michigan is Teh 
Best In Teh World? 

Besides, I followed their link about Long Pepper and they claim that 
Long Pepper is also known as Cubebs.  BZZZT! Thanks for playing!  I 
wrote them some email, don't expect an answer but they could surprise me.

The bacon does sound good though.
