Rocco from over at BaconFreak.com sent me over 4 kinds of his custom bacon for review. This is the first of many reviews to come. We’ll be starting with Smokey’s Hickory Smoke Bacon in this review.

Smokey's Hickory Smoked Bacon

The out-of-package experience with this bacon is a good one. Upon breaking the seal of the package you’re greeted by a fantastic hickory smoked scent. I have to think this is the real deal (and not liquid smoke) as its aroma is pungent and lasting (even on your fingers after you handle the bacon out of the package).

This bacon is quite thin out of the package which means it will have short cooking times. Even on a “dry” pan, it cooks up evenly and delicious. I was able to cook 5 slices in the pan in about 9 minutes and then 4 slices right after that in a “wet” pan in about 6 minutes.

You can see how much shrinkage there is

The final product is about 40% smaller (see picture) but that doesn’t take away from its flavor. The evenly cooked bacon is a delight on the pallate. Because of its thin nature, you have to be very careful not to overcook (heck, even the instructions on the back of the packaging tell you not to do that). The first batch I overcooked ever-so-slightly so it was a bit on the crunchy side for me but it did make me realize this would be an excellent bacon for BLT’s. You want bacon that is crispy and easy to bite-off in chunks (i.e. you don’t have to work at chewing pieces off).

The flavor is outstanding for a thin bacon (I’m partial to thick bacons of course) but I was impressed with the final look, smell and ultimate flavor of this product. That said, I think the value-per-pound is not very high (if you take shipping into account) so that’s something to keep in mind. The value-per-pound increases significantly if you get multiple kinds of bacon from BaconFreak.com.

    I was wondering if you ever thought of replacing the layout of your website? It is very well written; I really like what youve got to state. But maybe you could include a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better. You have got a great deal of wording for only having one or two photographs. Maybe you can space it out better?

    Bacon is a staple on the Paleo Diet, one that I recommend for folks to maintain after the hCG Diet.

    There are also quite a few great health benefits associated with HCG diet program as
    well. But If you are trying-to-conceive , every time you miss your period, your hopes that you are
    now finally pregnant go up. However , while using HCG procedure, it’s possible you’ll achieve to reduce weight even with minimal
    physical fitness day to day.

    Hello Web Admin, I noticed that your On-Page SEO is is missing a few factors, for one you do not use all three H tags in your post, also I notice that you are not using bold or italics properly in your SEO optimization. On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword….wait there’s even more Now what if i told you there was a simple Wordpress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you? That’s right AUTOMATICALLY, just watch this 4minute video for more information at. Seo Plugin

    You looѕe thе fats as a гesult of natural activity of the HCG
    hormone and there are nߋ chemically prepared prodսcts or medicines that are.

    You will not havе to go through the hаssles of getting a doctor’s appointment, getting your teѕts done and so on.
    Somе have seen an immeԁiate weight loss, calling this a “miracle” diet.
