You either love bacon, or you're wrong.

Nueske's out of Wisconsin. Applewood smoked and can be used with just about anything. Best bacon ever.

Love pancetta. But short of some smoked bacon from a Menonite market in PA, I usually buy whatever - except Smithfield which was purchased by China on principle. Don't like Oscar Meyer, seems really bland lately. A recent episode of America's Test Kitchen came up with Plumrose Thick Sliced as the taste test winner.

Great posts, thanks! But then I knew bacon was an easy subject to get opinions on. And what a peaceful conversation.

what we (u.s.) call canadian bacon is a whole different cut than what we consider bacon,,,
what we call Canadian bacon is more of a smoked thin sliced pork chop - like ham

our traditional bacon comes from pork bellies , smoked and cured

the fat gives it its flavor


"fresh bacon" is a pork belly sliced in strips, not cured - some French Canadians in maine look for this or it is sold in French regions such as northern maine
Can you tell me more about fresh bacon? How do you prepare it? Just add the spices, cut it in strips, smoke and fry? I've tried making my own bacon once and it tastes like heaven.

yes

you can buy fresh/uncured pork bellies from butcher shops or I get mine from a local IGA



here is a youtube clip showing a fresh/uncured pork belly,,,what traditional bacon is made from


Making Bacon From Pork Belly - How To Cure and Smoke Your Own Bacon - YouTube

and here is a wiki link on bacon - very interesting

Bacon - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


someone asked a question (didn't leave a name)

where does salt pork come from??

salt pork does come from pork bellies, same place as bacon,,

fat back comes from the back of the critter (between the outer skin and pork loin)
