Ms. Goofy's claim to fame is she has never met a Chicken Fried Steak that she has not liked. She is a beautiful women that just happens to be my wife. She is an expert at Meat Adventures and Bacon tastings. She is an expert at Italian cooking. I trust she will be fair and honest about the Chilebrownacon.
Chilebrown is a self appointed ambassador of promotion to find the best bacon possible. I have been on a quest to find this Holy Grail of Bacon. We found it briefly at the A&B market in Bend Oregon. Sadly this butcher has retired. I have been searching all over the country for a new Gold Standard of bacon. I am looking forward to this tasting.
- Scotts Country Bacon is from Kentucky. It is a salt bomb. All the tasters agreed it was hard to choke down. It had a country ham taste that we were not used to. It recieved a low rating of 2 1/2 stars
- Chilebrownacon is from my smoker in the backyard. Meaty was the consensus of the tasters. There was a good balance of smoke and sweet. Could this be the new Gold Standard of Bacon? It received high marks of 4.6 stars.
- Butler Gourmet Meats from Carson City Nevada was an unspectacular piece of bacon. It looked delicious but did not deliver. It received mediocre marks of 3 1/4 stars.
- Nueske from Wisconsin was the Smoke Bomb Deluxe. This is a quality bacon in all departments. Nueske may be the winner with a score of 4.5 stars.
The results are in. The votes have been tallied. Chilebrownacon is victorious! It was a close race and Nueske and Chilebrownacon were tied for first. The tie was broken by a swing vote by Ms. Goofy. She loved the Meaty taste of the Chilebrownacon. Did I tell you about Ms. Goofy's new car. It is unfortunate that Chilebrownacon is in limited quantities. Nueske will be around for a while. This means that Nueske will be be the new Gold Standard of Bacon. The quest will continue and there will be future Bacon Fridays. Amen.
