    Just tried the Rock yesterday for the first time and concur 100%

    Frying your bread in the pan you just finished the bacon with is a complete delicacy in my books.
    Sorry for your loss Ken, at least you had him for this long. Never met one of mine, and the other passed long ago.

    Down in Nfld not many people are real big on veggies, cabbage and potatos are about it, with rutabagas and carrots for a little variety.
    I've heard more than one account of elderly relatives who lasted into their 90s on this limited menu, along with all the carefree smoking and drinking you can imagine. It really reinforces the deterministic outlook folks seem to have down there. All that fish they eat must be a moderating influence.

    As a general observation, isn't cooking bacon a Canadian birthright?
    "It is an absolute truism that law-abiding, armed citizens pose no threat to other law-abiding citizens."

    Ammo, camo and things that go "blammo".

    Lol I used to work at a hotel restaurant in my 20s doing the breakfast shift, I saw these (almost always British) tourists come up to the bacon warmer where we used dry white toast to line the bottoms of the warmers, push all the bacon aside and grab these now basically translucent pieces of bread and walk away happily munching on it.
    Please refer to me as Waynetheperson, I wouldn't want to offend anyone.

    "On 1 February 2017, The Ohio Pork Council released a report that demand for pork belly product is outpacing supply. As of December 2016 national frozen pork belly inventory totaled 17.8 million lb (8.1 million kg), the lowest level in 50 years"

    Finally watched the video.
    Neat I guess, but real bacon don't have water coming out when cooking....only some of that store-bought crap does. Wonder how they do that?
