Cooked as Mobius described above?

I'm having a hard time with this "oven bacon" thing. The bacon pan is where the eggs get cooked, where am I supposed to cook the eggs now?

Listen here buddy, there is a reason my Sparco Sprint is a bit snug around the middle.

I'm not a huge fan of the poached egg thing, but I DO enjoy eggs benedict from time to time. I'm not sure I want to dedicate an entire kitchen gadget to the production of poached eggs. Do you have one of these things? Are there other uses for it?

I do. Not that exact one, but essentially identical. Got mine at bed bath & beyond.

There are not. (Well, I guess you can use it as a regular pan.)

I do not regret owning it. Easiest, most consistent way to poach an egg there is.

Try it with Swiss cheese and avocado on an English muffin.

Go low... and slow... almost like BBQ.
Yes it takes patience, but you're rewarded with the best damned pork product this side of grilled pork chops.

It takes the bacon from the oven, pours the grease into the egg skillet, or it gets sad eggs with no bacon grease ...

Are you having a Hyper moment or something?

Just saw Benton's Ham and Bacon on "Man, Fire, Food" on Food network.
Reminded me of this thread. We have a high end jerky guy in my hometown that is worth the 35 minute drive every couple months. I think I might try this mail order smoked meat thing too.

The best bacon can't even come close to the deliciousness that of carnitas.

Crispy, delicious, carnitas.

There's a little Salvadoran place that just opened up in the neighborhood... and their carnitas are almost as delicious as their pupusas.

Bacon be damned.

Ohh, forgot to post my recent experiment.
Tried bacon on the grill the other day. My first attempt i caught it all on fire. Put a drip pan down on my second attempt. Cooked it for a long time. It was... Okay.
Maybe i'll get better and do more than 3 strips.

I'm one to cook the bacon slow and get it chewy. I'm not a crunchy bacon person. I feel like crunchy bacon is overcooked and rushed, as if no love and care was taken in the process.
Not to start a chewy / crunchy argument or anything.

I will ban every one of you who does not like crunchy bacon. Chewy bacon is like a limp dick, disgusting.

I alternate cooking my bacon between the oven, frying pan, and my smoker. Smoked bacon is the best, but it takes far longer to do then the other methods.

Hell yes! Best part is the chewy fat.

My friends and I use to do our own Epic Meal Time, and the best time was with some bacon cooked with Jack Daniels then weaved and baked with a pizza.

I also cook bacon in the microwave. The same perfect chewy goodness in only about 5-6 minutes depending on how powerful the microwave is.
It may be some type of horrible sin, but i'm way to lazy sometimes.
