    Due to all the bacon love here on talkbass.com, I'm copying a thread I saw on another forum I visit. Maybe we can help each other expand our porcine gastronimic horizons, as well as our cholesterol readings.

    My favorite brand is Farmer John. How about you?

    Not a big enough fan to have a favorite brand, but wifey likes the thick cut stuff from the local butcher shop. I guess it's their house brand?

    Wright makes some good stuff that's easy to find in stores, but Dakin Farms makes bacon that I wake up thinking about......

    Product Summary - Dakin Farm.
  4. Any thick cut, freshly sliced stuff from the local butcher.

    Ive yet to find a good veggie bacon substitute. The best, so far, is MorningStar Farms, but that is only so-so at best.
  7. sometimes i like it thin... some times i like it thick ...

    it most often is purchased by cheapest by the oz ... often generic store brand

    but that wasn't the question ... no brand favorite... but thick sliced not peppered from the mexican meat market down the block is my favorite.

    forgot to add... thick sliced bacon and maple syrup is one of my favorite meals
  8. No brand, just thin sliced, and whichever packages have the most fat...

    If your pork roll was all that, it would be available in a wider geographical area. I suspect there's somehting in your water that ruins your ability to enjoy the fabulousness of bacon. How sad for you.

    This supposed to be the stuff! I've never had it but I've had the beef jerky and it's outrageous! ...they'll only ship the bacon to California.

    We just don't want to share with you heathens. One misstep, one careless moment when someone from outside our tri-state super-secret coven of meat appreciation gets a taste then it's all over. Next thing you know oscar meyer will be faking it, super market chains and walmart will be selling some nasty generic brand that they'll attempt to call "pork roll" then it's ruined for everyone. It's....it's just best this way.
  14. I'm sure the NJ water does more than just quell ones ability to enjoy a good slab o' bacon! :D

    Local non-branded. Cut fresh either thick or thin. Really thin bacon is awesome, if you haven't had it that way...it fries up quickly and is very crisp and crumbles better than other things.

    no brand but grab what's on sale first, if there is a choice... I grab the thickest cut... and if the thick cut has variety, I'll choose maple flavor (unless it's specifically NOT for breakfast).

    once those choices are tackled... I grab the leanest package.

    but I usually just grab some pork roll instead :p
