Bristol Farms Bacon, part 2 "Da Licious"

Okay, so I have been very lax in my posting, but I assure you it is because we have been busy busy busy with a lot of different bacon products. So be prepared for an onslaught of reviews this week. But first some unfinished business, as you may recall I grabbed some of the butcher counter bacon from Bristol Farms, and have been meaning to post the second part for some time.

This is for the more expensive ($6.49 per pound) "Applewood Smoked Bacon" I found at the butcher's counter. Let me tell you this is some THICK ass bacon! It it has one of the best stp (slice-to-pound) ratios so far, coming in with a whopping 11:1 ratio, that's 11 slices in 1 pound of sweet glorious bacon. This stuff fried up like bacon steaks. It had some moderate shrinkage but a very nice smokey aroma. This bacon was far superior to the other bulk bacon hands down. Well worth the extra two bucks per pound. I can see myself picking this up again, but it will have to be more than a pound, its just that good. Now if my bacon colored Honda didn't stick out so much in the parking lot.

Great flavor, smokey aroma and incredibly thick slices garners this bacon a hefty four slices.

Oh my god. TOTALLY agree. I'm a huge fan of their applewood smoke bacon. I stock them in the freezer 2 lb. at a time. :)
