Bacon is why I think vegetarians/vegans have a mental disorder.

nitrates give it a distinctive flavor that i like. Curing without nitrates just doesn't yield a result i am as happy with.
I cure my own bacon. Plan to smoke one tonight.
ETA: the image you used is a nitrate cured bacon. The color is pink, indicating nitrate curing.

thin bacon, are you insane?
Do you like it like that because you like it extra crispy.
I don't know how they do it here (Wisconsin) but they are able to take very thick bacon and dry cook/bake it so that it is
very done, but still juicy and tender without greasiness

Bacon should not be :
b/ Saltier than the dead sea
c/ Drowned in a diabetes inducing quantity of syrup
In the UK we have a corn based bacon flavour snack called
Frazzles which bears a remarkable similarity to most of the bacon resembling stuff that I have consumed Yankside.
My grandad is Texan, btw, so I would like to think that I can lay claim to a partially informed opinion
