Storytelling


Every story has a beginning,


a middle,


And an end.

In this case all three are bacon.  It's so smoky, peppery, salty, & porky.  It's intense.  I think it balances those things well, but it's a flavor explosion in your mouth.  I suppose that is part of the point of bacon.

The charcoal fuse method worked well.  I still think there are ways that I could slow down the fire and "smoke" the meat without "cooking" it.  There's a nice, slightly uncooked section in the center that will fry up perfectly in the pan.  It even has just a little bit of that iridescent shimmer that bacon gets on the exposed grain of the meat.
