    Pretty simple. Do you cook your bacon: Crispy, or soft?
    No idea how to do a pole so here it is.

    I am very picky about my bacon, I like it soft but stiff. Not to much grease either. I like to cook it over open fire hanging off a stick so the fat drips.

    I like it at the "chewy" stage, but I have eaten it about every way possible.

    I prefer it a little chewy. But if crispy, I still eat it. Bacon is great as long as it's not raw.

    Bacon must be cooked to that perfect point where it is crispy but melts in your mouth. At that point you have reached the pinnacle of culinary delights.

    If that is what you are looking for, pick up some pancetta.

    Make mine a little wiggly! Not a big fan of crispy but that's how most places cook their bacon no matter how you order it.

    My favorite way to eat bacon is raw. And no... I am not kidding. I've been eating raw bacon since I was a kid, I'm now in my 40's.
    I have to make myself save some to cook so that I can have some bacon grease to cook my eggs in ;)

    When I'm having bacon and eggs, I like my bacon to be slightly crispy.

    You all sound like you belong to the Brotherhood of Bacon Group if you havent already joined. Its a group here on BCUSA that celebrates all things bacon... It depends on how I cook my bacon. For a topping or garnish crispy, but I like to cook a nice thick cut pepper bacon until chewy. Al Dente so to speak. A day without Bacon is a day wasted.

    Niceee grilled cheese and bacon. Reminds me of the restaraunt I work at...we used to make bacon lettuce and cheese hogies for our lunch break. Until the boss noticed the bacon inventory was wayyy off.

    I prefer it chewy. Or anything but burnt.











    I probably eat it burnt too.

    It`s bacon, it is good for you.
