Shastina: Hi Chile, Its great to be here. What did you say to John?
Chilebrown: Can you tell us a little about yourself.
Shastina: Ms. Goofy and I have know each other for a long
time. In fact we are sisters.
Chilebrown: Does Johnny let you ride his Harley?
Shastina: Yeah, All the time, We love to go for rides.
Chilebrown: Do you think John will let me ride his Harley?
Shastina : NO!
Chilebrown: Do you have any special qualifications for today's
Mini Bacon Tasting?
Shastina: Well, Every time I go to the "All-You-Can-Eat-Big-
House-Buffet", I get a double scoop of 'Bac-o-Bits'
for my salad.
Chilebrown: That is perfect! Let's move on and meet the
A) Kents Meat & Groceries
8080 Airport Rd. Redding Ca. 96002 530 365-4322
This bacon is not heavily smoked. The slab was smoked with the rind on and was removed later. There is a good fat to meat ratio.
B) Swingle Meat Co.
12640 Kennedy Flat Rd. Jackson Ca. 95642 209 223-0731
This bacon was smoked at an Old Fashioned Smokehouse. It has a beautiful color. The first thing you notice is a pleasant smoke odor. This is eye candy bacon. The fat to meat ration leans to the meat side.
C) Chilebrown's 'Maple Bacon Salt' Bacon Experiment.
Mad Meat Genius Kitchen
Rodeo, Ca. 94572
I am a little biased about this slab of meat. It is very Meaty, NO RIND, great smoke smell.
The tasting was done blind. Our two tasters, Ms. Goofy, and Shastina did not know which bacon they were tasting to the end of the event. The slices were cooked in separate cast iron pans. They were served on paper plates. with only a letter for judging purposes. They were given note pads for tasting notes. Bacon 'A' was from Kent's Meats. Shastina said this bacon would make great Bac-o-bits. Ms. Goofy thought it was fairly mediocre,it was nothing to write home about.
