Why does /ck/ pretend to hate bacon?
It's delicious.
>>
I am an American and I am ashamed of my bacon. Why can't I get britians bacon?
>>
honestly i think most ppl here just really enjoy food, and so probably ate a lot of bacon during their teenage years and are kinda bored of it now.

or theyre part of the small minority that didnt like it when they first ate it, not helped by the fact a lot of people badly cook already awful quality bacon.
>>
>>7108698
What's the difference?
>>
Because

and I'm going wild here

maybe people with actual taste don't find fried slabs of pork fat delicious

but you are entitled to your opinion

and since you're probably a disgusting fat amerishit like 80% of this board you will defend your shit opinion against every reasonable argument, making this thread absolute crap.

Kill yourself, and kill your offspring if any.

You can if you know where to look. It won't be cheap, though. Stores that specialize in British or Irish goods would be a place to start.

>>7108704
American bacon is made of just pork belly. Brits would call it streaky bacon. British bacon is pork loin with a bit of belly at the end. What Americans call Canadian bacon is center cut pork loin.

American is just pork belly while British is both thick cut pork belly and back

I like bacon but I won't eat it in public or admit that I like it to anyone, except for here because its anonymous.
I just don't want to be known as the guy that eats meme foods.

>>7108710
British bacon is the same in Australia. It can actually be cooked in the microwave and taste good if you're feeling lazy.

In the past year or so "streaky bacon" (american) has appeared in our supermarkets and they are selling it for about $3 per kg more than the normal stuff. Makes me kek.

We have streaky bacon in the UK but I doubt it's anywhere near as popular as back bacon.
That said I heard on the news that there has been a decrease in sales of bacon due to the WHO report.
Fuck it, moderation is the key.
>>
>>7108803
Naw son.
I just moved into the city this year and I've saved so much money by buying from butchers and fruit and vegetable specific stores.

Don't get me wrong, I'm still poor as fuck and still go to places like wallmart and the bulk barn for dry goods, spices, and household objects.

But for saving money and getting decent meat/produce it's better to go to places like a butcher or fruit/veggie stand.
>>
>>7108928
Yeah there has been a decrease here in general of processed meat products not just limited to bacon, but have seen Chorizo and other stuff on desperate clearance prices at the shops because everyone has stopped buying it.

It's just another fad that will pass and everyone will forget about it.

>>7108942
Still, our bacon shits all over what is sold in the US. All they get is basically the left over shitty fat drippings nobody else wants.

Feels good to be able to microwave some pork on occasions, but it still tastes much better pan fried.

Chorizo is great, but most people just buy it and try to eat it like a fucking sausage. The flavour is powerful, great to flavour a sauce but not just eat it

The stuff we call "bacon" over here isn't the same as the stuff people call bacon in countries where they actually eat bacon.

Also it's usually sliced so thin it's almost fucking transparent.

I don't get anything at wal mart either.

This appears to be purely an Ameriburger phenomenon, which is probably why "lel teh bacon may-may!" threads are so fucking retarded: no one but the Claps have any idea what the fuck the OP is talking about.
>>
Back bacon is trash. There, I said it. It curls up and that big rind of fat is always stringy and rubbery.

Streaky bacon has a far better texture and its fat goes chewy, not stringy.

No. Marco said that shit and he was wrong

Dead, dead wrong.

It turns into a shriveled, dry as fuck piece of shit. It becomes almost as bad as American bacon

I think /ck/ hates it when people just smother otherwise marginal food in bacon and act like it's the best.
/ck/ also hates it if you aren't cooking on the level of a gourmet chef serving $50+ entrees. Heaven forbid you cook the loin of any animal without "muh sear" and "muh crust"

I always have a couple lbs of bacon in my fridge or freezer. I eat a lot more sausage though, since it takes significantly less time to cook. I do save my bacon fat for cooking though, namely fried eggs.
>>
>>7108803
>end this meme?
This isn't a meme. My local butcher shops have WAAAAY better quality products than my local and chain grocers- I simply can't afford to shop there on a regular basis.
>>
>>7111024
You're cooking it for too long then. It doesn't have to be crispy to be enjoyed
>>
Even before the cancer scare thing I was reluctant to eat bacon or pork in general. Lamb is ok; I only eat mutton bacon (sometimes called "macon"). I never eat a pig 'cause a pig is a cop or better yet a terminator like Arnold Schwarzenegger, trying to play me out like as if my name was Sega.
>>
>>7108955

Bacon isn't a meme food.
Bacon-flavored [insert literally any food ever here] IS.

>"your" local pizza place is guaranteed to have better pizza than this chain
>"your" local mom and pops down the street will have higher quality "x" food/ingredients

people make these assumptions despite not knowing where the other person is from. The "local mom and pops" could very well be shit but survives due to loyalty/nostalgia.

I can confirm this, I have a butcher shop 3 blocks from me that is absolutely disgusting. unsanitary, the meat is expired half the time, overpriced, ridiculously inconvenient hours, and shit quality meat. it's a "mom & pop" but I'd rather just go to whole foods.

there's some good butchers in my city but they're in other neighborhoods.

Bacon is fine, what passes for bacon being pieces of pork soaked in liquid smoke is not.

I would probably like crispy bacon, I just haven't gotten off my ass and made any yet.

It's a shame though, I really want to eat all these delicious-looking meat dishes but the flavor/texture is too overpowering for me and I just can't eat it.

This is a common red flag. Remeber that well for the future.

Protip: bacon should be cooked as slowly as sausages. If you can, get thick cut green cured, it's superior to both wet and dry cured.

No, it's usually pork belly or pork round. Whoever told you that it was ass is having you on.

i might just remember wrong, it was like 25 years ago when i was told that.
