World's best bacon

After 70 years intensive research, I've found it.

Kirkland (Costco) thick sliced European belly bacon

If you like extra lean, hickory smoked, sliced thicker than a quarter pounder, this one's for you.

And a buck less/pound than that Kroger brand.

I'll have to check that out. I can see using that diced in some of my recipes.

Yeah the Kirkland bacon that you speak of is fantastic.

If you have Wright's brand bacon near you, give that a try, it's fantastic too.

I buy the house brand of Market Basket thick sliced bacon. We don't eat it as a meat, but diced for corn chowder and other meals. Sandwich mixes, etc. I use it for flavoring, not part of a meal.

Smithfield Foods is a famous maker of regular and smoked pork products in my area, so that's what I normally buy. Yummy

I have continued to buy Smithfield Ham slices. I haven't noticed any change in taste since the company was sold.
