The homemade bacon is so thick and delicious, you can really sink your teeth into it.  It’s moist and juicy inside but crisp on the outside….the store bought bacon has no inside so there is really no comparison.

The homemade bacon has a rich smoky flavor but it’s not too strong,  you can really taste the slightly sweet flavor of the pork as well.  Unfortunately the flavor of the store bought bacon was weak and wimpy, there was not much to it at all.

So the verdict is : I will take a little effort and a bit of time to make my  bacon at home.  It is TOTALLY worth it.

      Turkey bacon ain’t bacon, but I know a lot of people avoid pork for many reasons and use turkey bacon as a substitute. I have made a cured turkey breast that could be smoked to give you a similar bacon flavor. I’ll post that recipe soon.
