I cook it in a cast iron skillet unless I am nekid....Then I cook it in the oven. If cooking in the oven, wear your apron backwards so you don't scare anyone when you bend over to pull the bacon out of the oven.

Nothing wrong with wrapping a filet. That cut has no flavor to begin with.

There are more subtle fats that can be used for larding fine cuts.

Jalepeno wrapped in dove wrapped in bacon and grilled is pretty dammed good.

Fresh caught trout fried in bacon fat with cornmeal is fairly good also.

I had the contract for our local octoberfest this year. Can you say potato salad with bacon dressing? Do you have any idea how much bacon you have to cook off to get enough fat to make dressing for 2000 people?

A am pretty much convinced that there will not be peace in the middle east untill the people embrace pork...bacon in particular.

I thought I would post this here since the subject is appropriate.

Is anyone else ticked off at the new Old Navy TV ads where there this young guy is touting the fact that they're giving away prizes every hour in their Old Navy stores and you could be a winner, too. They show a lot of people in the background running around, screaming about their prizes.

Except for Irwin...

They cut to a kitchen where this guy (Irwin) is busy frying bacon in a skillet. The spokes-kid stands next to him and says everyone can be a winner except for Irwin here who'd rather stay home and fry bacon than be an Old Navy winner. :angry::laugh: The spokes-kid actually says "Don't be an Irwin".

Hello?! Priorities, people! I don't care if Publisher's Clearing House is knocking on my door. If I'm frying up some bacon, go away...leave me be to my fried heaven in a pan. I'd have given that kid a taste of my pig iron upside his head for standing in my kitchen and insulting my bacon frying.

Old Navy can go to hell.

My name is Toliver-Irwin and I'm a bacon-fryer, dammit. :angry::raz::laugh:

I usually do mine, plain, in the oven... and then I had"Elizabeth's" bacon in New Orleans. Sadly, I don't think they reopened after Katrina (I hope I'm wrong)

She served thick cut bacon that had been liberally covered in brown sugar and pecans before going in the oven.

Just thinking about it is going to keep me awake and hungry tonight.

If a man makes a statement and a woman is not around to witness it, is he still wrong?
