Default Talk to me about BACON!

One of the Harrier pilots here was talking about bacon and how his Dad orders some ridiculously good stuff over the internet and he gains 3lbs everytime he goes home on leave.

And so I've got a buddy who helped out the wife lot at home while I've been on deployment... no not that kind of "help". His wife helped a lot too... no, not that kind of... CRAP. I can't win.

Yes, I could Google search "bacon" I'm sure and order something, but I thought we might have a few people here who could chime in on the subject.

So help me order my buddy some good custom/artisan/whatever bacon. Where do I start?

I've had some Nueskes before but I don't remember which selection. It was good. The gourmet bacon assortment looks like a good place to start.

Can't help with where to buy, but to cook I haven't found a better way than cooking in water:

I've both picked up bacon from nueskes, and had it mailed to me. It's delicious.

How do you think the perishable food gets to your local grocery store?

Find a Small, Local, Low Volume butcher shop run by a Husband and Wife who have been doing businesss for at least 20 years. They probably close by about 6:00pm on weekdays, and might only be open for 4 or 6 hours on Saturday. Bonus points if you have to drive down a long driveway with "Speed Limit 5 MPH" signs posted every 500 feet or so.

That's a good place to start.

$60 shipped. We've only cooked one meal, some pork cubano sandwiches with a Kale salad, but damn it was surprisingly good.

$10 a person ain't bad either, especially if you're bored with your "usual" cooking. We weren't, but got sucked in to the commercial and had to give it a shot.

/thread drift.

Dude, where'd you get it, and how much is that?

I'm looking at VanDeRose, Bentons, and Nueske's... probably going to go with a sample pack... 5 lbs should do it, you think?

Is it that hard to figure out which houses are and aren't inhabited in Detroit?

Cut your grass?

Cut grass is not always a distinguishing feature of an inhabited residence in Detroit.

The cookie filter out here on the ships LAN won't let me add anything to the shopping cart on the various bacon websites I've been looking at. We should be hitting a portcall here shortly, so I'll be able to grab some wifi and make it happen. I think I've settled on a some Bentons as an initial foray... might even order myself some for when I get home in a few weeks. CRUISE IS ALMOST OVER!!! **** YEAH!!!

Just sent that to my wife. We'll see how it does.

Of course, nothing goes better with bacon than fresh eggs free range eggs. We get 2 or 3 each day...

Don't boil your bacon.
Toss it in a 300 degree oven for about 45 minutes.

Thats a long *** time to cook bacon. I'd rather have a delicious slice out of the frying pan in about 20 seconds.
