Best bacon in San Diego?!

MrKrispy | Mar 7, 2009 09:59 AM

Just got done having our first pkg of bacon from the Linkery, and all we can say is WOW. By far the best bacon I have ever had. Lightly smoked, plenty of actual meat, complex flavors from the honey and smoke...outstanding!

I usually get the bacon from Siesel's, and like the bulk applewood smoked bacon from Vons, but the Linkery stuff blew us away. Anyone else try it yet?

FWIW, here is how I have been cooking the bacon lately: Heat the oven to 375-400F, place the bacon on a wire cooke rack, place that on a cookie sheet (with walls), and cook about 15 minutes without flipping. The elevated rack enables the fat to render and drip away, and both sides crisp so you don't have to flip. Healthier than pan frying, but just as tasty, and the best part: no grease splatter!
