Nueske's Smoked Bacon: ehhhhhhh
Bacon seems to becoming more of an 0bsession than usual in the MM household. Don't tell the Rabbi! Anyway, we tried yet another brand of bacon: Nueski's Smoked Bacon. At first, the bacon looked like it was going to be great. As you can see from the photo [its fuzzy, I know, but my camera is failing :( ] the bacon is cut thick for a commercial brand, and the meat to fat ratio (the MF!) is good. Having said that, the taste wasn't all it was cracked up to be.
I thought the bacon was too salty. Also, it was difficult to crisp well without burning, although I probably could have adjusted my cooking somewhat. Finally even though it is applewood smoked (on the website they tell you), it has a somewhat harsh smoked taste, which is not my preference.
So far, of the bacon reviews, my favorite is still:
1) Applegate Farms Sunday Bacon
2) D'artagnan bacon
There will of course, be more to follow.
