Tuscan Torch!

Someone pointed me at this this story on popsci.  He actually calls prosciutto an “engineering grade of bacon”!

It seems to me that using thin pieces to create massive amounts of surface area for combustion is the right way to go. Mythbusters didn’t do so in the episodes that I saw – but then again I missed it when they actually got 800+ lbs of thrust from the salami rocket.
