the best bacon

Discussion in 'Fatties' started by fatterson, Jan 2, 2012.

  1. I did my first fattie the other day and i turned out pretty good, but I was sitting and here pondering the bacon. Some of mine tore or just didn't cover up the whole thing as I planned. Whats the best type/brand bacon you use? I used a pound of regular Smithfield bacon but am curious if there is something better for wrapping. Thanks

    I like to use the thinnest bacon I can find, and the cheapist. I use Big Buy Bacon.

    Like they said the thinnest you can buy, which is usually the cheapest too.

    Like everyone said the thinnest cheapest you can find. It's not worth using your home made bacon for you will loss the flavor of your bacon

  9. Did a weave.
