I have noticed that many of us include Bacon when discussing beer, food, menus, restaurants, etc.

I felt Bacon deserves its own thread.
I have of course, eaten lots of bacon in my time but as I get older and learn more Ifind there are many kinds of bacon and bacon products which I have yet to sample.
I have had the majority of general store bought bacons and I have been fortunate enough to have home cured bacons. I have had jowl bacon, cottage bacon, collar and hock bacons. One of my favorites is called side pork, which is bacon with the skin or rind still on it.

I don't like my bacon cooked completely crispy unless it is to be used in another preparation for like soups, stews or chowders.

I will think of more bacon talk later.

We need a Bacon Icon/Smiley

Bacon -- it's what's for dinner! Actually, every meal is better with bacon. Good idea on the thread starter.

I cure and smoke my own belly, cheek/jowl, and buckboard bacons. Great stuff! And fun to play with flavors and spices for variety.

On my bucket list is something I saw on the travel or food channel: breaded, deep fried bacon smothered in country gravy. Can't get any better to eat or any worse for your arteries! I think it was in Louisiana or thereabouts.

I cook mine chewy but not crispy. The only time I do it crispy is when I have really thin cut bacon, and even then I only use it so I can make it into bacon crumbles for sprinkling on stuff.

I always thought this was funny: http://hahafunnylol.com/post/5358899...f#.UhfklNKsiSo

I like to cut it up, mix it up with ground pork and homebrewed porter and grill up some burgers.

I wish I had a cold smoker to smoke Bacon and some beer grains at the same time

I felt my arteries get harder just reading about breaded deep fried bacon.

Wow, 115 views and only 6 replies. I really thought Bacon would be a bit more popular.

Well, I had Bacon wrapped fresh caught Trout this weekend with scalloped potatoes, the potatoes were from our garden.

That's because everyone viewed it then immediately had to run out and buy bacon instead of replying.

Bacon wrapped trout sounds good.
Bacon makes everything better.
