View Full Version : Food and Drink Another bacon thread since my son's fugtard friends have shattered my reality

We live in a rural area and most weekends my son has friends that come over to hang out and spend Friday and Saturday night.

Anyway when I usually make breakfast in the morning I always cook the bacon crisp. I've received feedback from my son that his friends think I over do it. It's not burnt mind you, just crisp enough to where it can be broken into pieces.

For me, chewing on pork fat is disgusting so I always order it cooked crisp if I'm eating breakfast in a restaurant.

So my question is, with poll to follow, crisp or limp bacon?

Any bacon is good bacon

Ground up into a shake, raw, burnt black, I dont give a fuck because it's bacon.

Bravo for not caving to those little brats. If they don't like your perfectly cooked bacon they can go buy some themselves.

You should honestly stop cooking them breakfast. And you should also mow the lawn while they're still sleeping.

Crisp FTW!

And if your son's free-loadin' friends want to complain about free bacon, tell 'em to bring their own pop-tarts.

I like mine in-between, I guess. Though my preference lies further towards the "limp" side of the dichotomy. I don't want m bacon to fall over on itself, but I want the fat to not be overcooked.

Both donenesses have their place. Obviously, texture is a huge difference. Crispy bacon is going to have a more concentrated pork meat taste. "Limp" bacon is going to better showcase the flavor of pork fat (which is pretty much the reason I eat bacon in the first place).

The first two should be check boxes, and the 3rd shouldn't be there at all.

Or combine the first two and get rid of the 3rd, but I don't think you can create a poll with only one option.

Fair enough. My worst bacon experiences are when I order it in a restaurant and it actually will flop over if you pick it up. If it just bends that is a different story.

Maybe another question is have you ever been served a piece of bacon that you wouldn't eat....and not because you were already full. Because I have.

Don't care for it overly crispy but medium well is pretty good. It all depends on what the bacon application is being prepared for.
Bacon and eggs? Crispy
Bacon cheeseburgers? Crispy
Wrapped fillets? Medium
You get the point.

However, I do like it medium rare on occasion. Well done? If its thick bacon, yeah. If its the thin 3 bucks a pound Bar S crap, well done works.

I prefer bacon to be lean, crispy and devoid of fat lumps. In restaurants, I always order it "Extra crispy" to avoid eating limp and sometimes raw bacon.

Absolutely not, crisp bacon has the unique flavor of rendered pork fat, which is in every manner superior to chewy fat.

I lack the necessary time to read these long threads about bacon. However, I do have an opinion on the matter.

Side one should be crispy. Side two, however, should be medium. Side two is the side facing upward when plated.

Crisp is better. My nephew likes it chewy and almost raw when he comes over and I don't get that.

02-08-2011, 11:09 AM
True to form....I prefer mine, in the middle.

Not too crisp (too often it's crumbly, with a faint burnt taste,) but not limp either (fat needs a meaty texture for it not to be "yuck.")

Did you really expect anything different from me? :)

BTW with all the new Sports bars in town, you should drive north some Fri-Sat nights, and we could meet for a beer sometime....heck, maybe even with Delano or oldandslow (he could have lemonade, or something--if we could drag him off his personal reservation. Heh)

Slow fry or bake crisp is by far the best way to eat bacon. Most people cook it way too fast when it is crisp which takes away a lot of flavor.

MOhillbilly

Explain the difference to me, please.

wet cure is mostly a brine type or injection method(hams). Dry cure is salt and sugar mostly.

wet cure you tend to get a deeper flavor but its super easy to spoil the meat and takes some chemistry skills.
Dry cure is 99% of whats on the market.edit- easier and less apt to spoil, takes half the time,cures come pre packaged.

wet cure done right is a million times the flavor of dry imo.
