Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, a Republican presidential candidate, on Monday released a new video where he shows off a method for cooking bacon with a machine gun.

“Few things I enjoy more than on weekends cooking breakfast with the family. Of course in Texas, we cook bacon a little differently than most folks,” Cruz says in a new video from IJ Review.

The Texas lawmaker is expected to be among the top 10 Republican candidates on stage at the first presidential debate on Thursday night. Much of the attention is expected to fall on businessman Donald Trump, who is the front-runner in Republican polls.

Trump’s GOP rivals have worked to steal away some of his media attention. Sen. Lindsey Graham (S.C.) destroyed cellphones in another IJReview video last month after Trump gave out his number during a campaign speech. 

Cruz is currently tied for fifth place in the RealClearPolitics polling average with former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee and Florida Sen. Marco Rubio (R). While considered a top contender, Rubio and other candidates have seen their poll numbers  fall sharply since Trump’s entrance into the race.
