OK, I changed my mind forgetting that BACON is made of pig. No possible way I could do without real bacon forever.

Then the slices get smoked @ 225F until done using pecan splits on the Egg or Horizon offset. They get vacuum packed in portion size servings and frozen.

I'm switching sides, too, Kayelle. Chicken bacon ain't a thing in my kitchen if it's a thing at all. Besides, pork is the other white meat, so I can make any of my chicken dishes with pork.

Sounds great… but alas I have no smoker, and never tried smoking on my gas grill (not sure it can maintain that low a temp). I usually order from Magic Seasoning Blends for one of my favorite pasta dishes (Paul Prudhomme's Tasso and Oysters Cream Fettuccine). Can't get fresh oysters up here either, but can sometimes get little neck clams which I substitute.

When I lived in L.A., Paul had a restaurant where I often ordered this along with the jalapeño cheese rolls… yum!

Oh the things I miss from the So. Cal. days.

Pork...because, BACON. I love cooking with pork, it is well represented in all cuisines.

I would set up a co-op where everyone could trade their one protein choice with people who chose a different protein. We are called omnivores for a reason!

My contention is, that if we weren't meant to eat meat, we wouln't have evolved the dentition for it.

If I were still a hunter and gatherer, I'd aim my spear at was currently available at the moment.

But if I really, REALLY had to choose - I'd pick pork.

A very creative response that completely fails to answer the question in the OP.

If I set up that co-op, my particular choice would be irrelevant!

Until you do, which meat would you choose?

My choice would be pork and its many variations.

Ham
Bacon
Sausage smoked and fresh
Roasts
Chops
Ribs

Most likely beef, with pork a close second. That's what most of my recipes call for. Never was a big chicken or seafood fan.
