Does anyone here consider Canadian bacon to be "real" bacon?  Because I don't.  Don't get me wrong, it's tasty stuff, but it's HAM.

  yes.gif   I love the stuff, but you're right.  It's ham.

Apple
Wood
Smoked
Bacon


Introduced to it in Vegas at the MGM grand breakfast buffet day 2 of our elopement 5+ years ago.  Very tender barely done, succulent strip of fat, and thick sliced with a hearty hunk of meat attached to it.

Now I hear tell of a thing called Cherrywood smoked bacon?  And why was I not informed of this?

The debat should be over whether you like your bacon crispy or floppy?

Floppy for me.  If its crispy, it's over done in my book.

I had a bacon sandwhich today.
I cut the bread into thinner pieces and stuck bacon inside, and inside the sandwhich I put bacon, and I added bacon-flavored cheese. I put a piece of lettuce inside (there was bacon wrapped inside the lettuce) and I also put more bacon. Then I drank bacon juice to go with it.

It needs to be cooked to the point where it's still pretty flexible.  Limp & floppy = not cooked enough, crispy = overcooked.  Some people cook it to the point where I consider it burnt - my mom, for example.  If you are so concerned about how much fat you are consuming, step away from the bacon and leave more for the rest of us.

I refuse to sully the word "bacon" by affiliating it with any of the following words:

turkey
vegan
meatless
substitute

That is all.

That shit's an affront to the bacon-eating masses.  I picked up a jar in the grocery store one afternoon out of curiosity and guess what?  NO REAL BACON anywhere in the ingredients.  It uses "imitation bacon flavoring".  

Kids, that's about 26 layers of wrong.

I've never had it, but that's terrible. Even worse is the fact that they make a "light" version.  angry.gif

Or Kevin.


For the first time ever I agree with Il Snowdog. Bacon should not be crispy. Once it is crispy it becomes junk food.

Denny's has a whole menu insert of bacon specials going on now, including a bacon sundae. Srsly. Ice cream & syrup sprinkled with bacon. I may choose the bacon cheese waffle next time I go.

And I vote for not-quite-crispy bacon.

Sounds marvelous, but I'd take it without the egg.
