un-smoked streaky bacon?
thick center cut Applewood smoked bacon?
Dry-cured, outdoor bred, rare breed is definitely the best IMO?
You people know WAY too much about bacon!
I like the one that comes in a sealed package at the store.
Jigger, im about to make your quality of life markedly better by telling you this:
Applewood smoke was made for pork. 100% absolutely. It has a slight mustard smell to it, and the flavor is deeeeeeee-vine.
I love me some oak, mesquite, and pecan. BUt applewood with pork is the cats meow. A few others:
Sausage - always use oak, no matter what kind it is
Chicken - Mesquite
Beef - oak or hickory
Remember: smoke is a flavoring, too!
