    I'm not a big bacon eater, but I do like to indulge occasionally. What I really love is saving the fat to cook with. Nothing like collard greens cooked in bacon. That's a swino-vegetarian dish.

    I've tried making bacon myself both using pink salt and without pink salt, just a dry rub. The pink salt gives it a more "ham" flavor. Concerns over chemicals aside, I actually prefer just the dry rub because it tastes more like delicious pork than ham. It also tends to be less salty so you can really taste the meat/smoke. As someone else mentioned, a food slicer is really key. I'm pretty good with the knife but I could never slice the pork belly with much consistency.

    Love bacon...love love love!!!

    I've cured it once myself and really enjoyed it (well, except I let it sit in the dry rub too long so it was pretty salty). Heck of a lot cheaper to cure it myself vs buying it.

    What is your preferred method of cooking? I like to bake it-always get the perfect level of chewy-crispy without the splatter mess.

    I like to keep bacon for occasional indulgences, and I call those indulgences...breakfast! Yeah, I go through about two pounds a week, but I buy mine fresh from a farmer's market.
