Actor and comedian Josh Sankey will not be traveling across the United States with cash, check or plastic. He has a trailer filled with bacon.

Foodbeat reports that as part of an Oscar Mayer promotion, Sankey will use 3,000 pounds of thick cut bacon as currency in order to barter for all his necessities. He’ll stop in 12 cities as part of a New York to Los Angeles tour.

Fans can tag along with Sankey’s adventures on baconbarter.com, or follow him on Twitter.

Oscar Mayer says its their bacon is “worth its weight in gold.” Sankey will be the judge.
