What kind of bacon ya got there, Pay?
Nice and uniform looking. It's hard to come by a nice straight strip that isn't all fat (wide) on one end and tapering off to nothing on the other. Even buying "good stuff" doesn't lend itself to consistency.

Hormel thin sliced.

I've used that. Black Label I think it was called.
I think good bacon is pretty much hit or miss anymore. Sure, the taste is still there, but for those of us that like to weave and wrap...

Yep that is the one. I usually buy what is on sale in the name brands.I use the thinnest I can find as well. Seems to slice easier when the bacon is thin. It is tuff to wrap fatties with sorry bacon. I try to look in the backside of the package to check for quality too. If the package hides the meat from view thru the back, I don't buy.

We've had good luck with Costco's Kirkland bacon. I used that to make my fatty.

I find it helps if the bacon is room temp and you stretch it a little.
