>I wonder if that dog is still alive.

Although it looks like a Nineties commercial to me, the video was uploaded in 2008, so let's say that's the latest possible production date. And the Golden Retriever looks full-size, which according to internets takes 1-2 years from birth, so the dog would be at least 14 years old by now. But average life expectancy for Goldens is 10-12 years--so no, probably not still alive.

Bacon is pr. definition processed.

>> No.16599780

I'm cheap and buy pre packaged from the supermarket, but I find middle can be a bit hit or miss sometimes. I like to keep bacon soft, and some packs have really nice big rashers with plenty of fat on them which tend to have this great creamy taste to them. Sometimes though I get a pack of sad looking rashers often lacking a bit of fat, and those sometimes end up tasting more like a dry and partially flavourless ham.

i'd go with the american style simply because it seems more useful. it renders out more fat which you can then cook the rest of your degenerate fried meal with and provides a more interesting and crispy texture.
that's not to say the bong version isn't tasty or anything, i'm just saying that gun to my head i'd pick the american version.

The large chunk of meat is literally the loin, a part that is cut away and sold as its own piece. It's more profitable to sell the belly as bacon and sell the loin separately as its own cut.

I grew up on "real" bacon and while it was okay, it was always poorly cooked. Something about other bacon types compels people to stick it on the pan for a second and then serve it semi-raw. Such bacon is disgusting.
