Determined to prove Oscar Mayer Butcher Thick Cut Bacon is the gold standard, the company has challenged actor, writer and comedian Josh Sankey to barter his way across the country using nothing but bacon as currency to obtain gas, lodging, food and everything else he'll need along the way.

The Great American Bacon Barter kicks-off on September 9, when Sankey will attempt to barter his way from New York City to Los Angeles over a two-week period with nothing but a trailer full of 3,000 pounds of Oscar Mayer Butcher Thick Cut bacon. Sankey will have no cash or credit cards, just the delicious bacon, which is hand-trimmed and smoked with natural hardwood for up to 14 hours
