Chilebrown at home

Grab some popcorn and take a seat. The curtain will rise to start the Revue  from Chico Locker & Sausage. Our star is a beautiful performer that looks like a celebrity in the bacon world. Beautiful mahogany color with a sheen that is bright and clear adorns the exterior of our slab.The aroma has an intoxicating maple flavor with a whisper of smoke in the background. The meat to fat ratio is perfect. Let's slice some and let the show begin. Our trusty black iron will take the stage to crisp and coax maximum performance. The show has begun and maple aroma fills the auditorium with visions of pancakes and waffles. This just smell like breakfast. The bacon crisps perfectly.

 How does it taste? This bacon has a perfect balance of maple sugar to salt. One does not overshadow the other. It is sweet but savory with beautiful porkiness. This is some fantastic bacon. Could this be the new 'Gold Standard' of bacon? There was a smoke component but very slight. Oh, so close, with just a little more smoke, we might of witnessed a standing ovation. This bacon is a keeper. It will definitely receive four stars out of 5. Bravo Chico Locker & Sausage.

We still keep looking for the perfect bacon. It is a long journey, but not arduous.

Zoomie, Nueskes has hit some rough spots. Your right. The journey is what it is all about.

That looks great. I shed a tear just try to imagine the smell and sizzle.

Three Dogs BBQ, The maple aroma is crazy good. I am going to use some of the bacon love (grease) in some cornbread. Yummy.

It looks like you haven't done any bacon reviews in a long time. Are you going to start them up again?
