  3. Ha! Love it... Once I sat next to a fireplace on a romantic night out with hubby, and I noticed that this small stream of smoke kept coming at me, and when I walked out, hubby bent over and said "Ahhh smoked Elizabeth, ain't nothing like it". A true story...

  5. I am going to admit something that may shock you (especially you!), I prefer my bacon lightly, or not at all smoked. So big green egg... GREG

  6. Or perhaps he just ran willy nilly through a burning hickory forest, avoiding the flames, so that he was able to absorb all that lovely smokey goodness without overcooking himself?

  10. The claims made by food companies are worded by people with degrees in Advertising and Law! They know exactly how far they can stretch the truth!

  11. Makes me wonder what it means when the bacon is just labeled hickory smoked. Does that mean it is not natural? Either way, its bacon!!!

    BTW -- we tried uncured bacon from Earh Fare last weekend and I was surprised at how very good it was.
