Bacon in Chicago?

Querencia | Nov 13, 2006 01:35 PM

Before somebody moves this to the General Board let me say clearly that this is a Chicago-specific post. Can anybody tell me where they sell bacon that tastes like bacon tasted once upon a time---smoky, a little salty. bacon-y? I've tried many brands sold by supermarkets including the Boar's Head at Treasure Island but none of it has a bacon flavor. I'm now ready to start on specialty butcher shops and am asking for recommendations. Also, can anyone tell me the descriptors I should be looking for (what does "salt-cured" mean, for example?).
