I toured through a hog breeding facility and learned that they know the genetic make up of the pigs in their facility and can breed hogs to produce different types of bacon based on the country they were to be sold in. Those for the US were bred to have more "streaky bacon" and those for export, to say Japan, were bred to have leaner meat. The tour guide referred to the export bacon as being a "better quality" than what people in the US like.

I've found that one of the most unique and kind of fun ways to cook bacon is to bake it. Using cookie sheets, line the trays with bacon in a neat order just barely overlapping each other. Cook for about 20 min on one side, then flip the strips and bake some more until they're done. This is particularly successful with thick cut bacon. Thanks for sharing an awesome post!

i have another method for you to try.
place bacon on a "rack" on a baking sheet.
place in cold oven.
set oven to 4oo-degress F and turn on.
let bacon cook 17 minutes.
it should be done to pretty much perfection.
you can then decant the grease in the pan to save for other uses,
such as to make corn bread ....
good luck...

Bacon cooked in a 400 degree oven for about 20 minutes is the best way. No mess, bacon is evenly cooked, and crisp. Cook's Illustrated also recommends cooking in water (sounds counter-intuitive, I know)

You have a typo: Method 3: Baking at low temperatures
I seemed to have lost the pictures that accompanied this baking technique - but their not much to look at anyway, it's just an oven.

THEIR should read THEY'RE
