You may have noticed the new title of the Bacon Review. It is now the "Bacon Revue". It is now the Theater of Bacon. I think this title is more appropriate. Thanks Dr. Biggles. This Saturday we were camped out before the storm at the Meathenge Laboratory. We had a bacon tasting seminar. The Sourdough Monkey Clan was present as well as Myself and the Dr. One of the Bacons we tasted was Nueske. This bacon was the smoke Bomb. It had a great texture. It was meaty.It was not overly sweet. The Nueske bacon was the crowd favorite. It was the favorite of the little Monkey Zoe. I am going to have to agree. It had the right balance of salt,sweet and gave you a jolt of smoke. I am going to give it a 4 and 1/2 stars.

Nueske's bacon is by far the finest bacon widely available in the US. It is a staple of Minnesota and Wisconsin deli counters when I lived there, and is ragingly, dangerously, scandalously good. It's essentially pork crack...
