Watched the show... showed off bacon, not so much Zingerman's....can buy most of the bacon at Hillers or Whole Foods for 1/3 of price

Until you've had a true DRY cured and smoke bacon, you haven't really had bacon. This stuff will run you a little more than the grocery store stuff, but it is sooo worth it.

Bacon: pound for pound probably the best food ever invented (with apologies to vegetarians)

Unless it is burnt, have you ever really had a bad batch of bacon?
