For a bacon-lover's bday: What's the best bacon you've bought locally? I am centrally located, but I'll take any suggestions.
I usually like the thick cut store brand bacon from Henry's. The TJ's bacon has been okay (nieman ranch and store brand applewood smoked), but not better than the Henry's.
Anything special at Iowa Meat? Tip Top Meats?
I really like the bacon at the Original Pancake House, and I've watched "The Right Way to Cook" bacon video on Chow!
