    I love bacon and pork belly. I think the only thing that concerns me about the stuff is the high sodium content and the questionable nature of nitrates.

    I also (gasp) save the grease and cook with it or use it to cure cast iron pans. A little bit goes a looooong way in a skillet.

    I do too. I filter it out so it is smooth.............

    Uncured bacon has no nitrates so it is way better for you. :love: :love: :love:

    I just got back from a camping trip and nothing tastes and smells as good as bacon cooking on a cast iron skillet! Especially after a long day of hiking.

    I probably won't have bacon for awhile now lol!

    While we are on the subject of nitrates. If you read labels carefully, you can get nitrate-free deli meats also.
