    Im canadian and ive never heard of canadian bacon. Our bacon is like the first bacon you showed. The canadian bacin is just ham that we eat with maybe at brunch with maple syrup. Because that ham is very salty.

    lol eating raw bacon? i wonder what that tastes like. is it cooked at all? since the caption says they recommend cooking it fully. so i'm assuming it's not completely raw

    The funny thing is most people shopping at a fresh meat store would always go for the processed option. They look more uniform and it's more so what they're used to purchasing in their pre-packaged processed versions.

    Selling high quality meats is simply not easy, people don't want it. lol

    one correction, Speck is not northern italian, but more of a central/southern Austrian and also Czech cured Bacon, the only part of Italy you find this in is in the italian Province of southern Tyrol which used to be part of Austria.

    Canadian bacon is so insulting to Canadians just because bacon in Canada is basically American bacon. Canadian bacon is just another thing made by Americans that is just a false stereotype about Canada

    You overcooked the English bacon... it’s better when the fat is soft but the edges are slightly crispy, then you cook it without getting rid of excess fat so it’s not dry. Personally I think you are a disgrace to all the English bacon eaters out there.... 😂😂😂 plus this is just my view no hate.... and I’m hungry now

      Right? The lean part should be more like a meaty ham, the fat in between should still have a little chew and the outer edge crispy

    Although I respect his knowledge with real bacon, I was surprised he guessed the turkey “bacon” wrong. I immediately knew that B was more expensive. B looks like actual meat whereas A looks like Play-Doh.

  • Anthony Falcon

    Lean meats are of lower quality, taste worse, and have less nutritional value. The more fat the better. Why do you think Wagyu is so expensive and tastes so good? Why do you think the more well-done a steak is, the less flavor/tenderness it has(more cooking = more fat loss). I don't like my bacon crunchy. I don't like my ribeye steak well done.
