    Hora have you tried Taylor’s in Sale Moor, used to be really good, not used it for a while though. Failing that Nixon’s farm near Cheadle is excellent – they do bacon ribs mmmmmmmmm

    I really wonder how some people get through life – with challenges like being a sex addict and being unable to to find bacon.

    Despite being a flat town filled with chavs and surrounded by a sea of barely rideable mud, in Doncaster we eat like kings, thanks to our brilliant meat, veg and fish markets. Here’s the pick of the butchers, they seem to have let bits of the website go to pot, but the meat is as good as ever.

    Oh and if you fancy a change, how about a pie?

    Yummy, market day tomorrow.

    Find a decent local butcher.

    I was very impressed with the bacon I bought from my local butcher – Ken Davey in Bookham. Completely different from even the best I’d bought from a supermarket. I don’t like to ask if it contains anything it shouldn’t as when I asked if there was a choice of turkeys to order, and that I wanted the best they sell, I was told that they only sell one sort and that they pluck them on the premises then hang in a purpose built turkey cold room for 2 weeks – was then asked ‘Is that good enough for you?’.

    there eating pig now!!
    These guys in Turkey seem a bit more relaxed about it.

    Could do worse. I’ve had a few bits and pieces from this lot. Unfailingly delicious.

    Really, making bacon is child’s play. You just make up a dry cure, cure the joint for a few days, smoke if you want. Keep in the fridge for a month.

    I’ve only done streaky/pancetta so far. Going to do a couple whole back/belly next. I have a farm shop near me that rear and butcher saddle back and glouster old spot pigs.

    I get bacon from Fenwicks in Newcastle, who’s butchers counter sells meat from these people:

    Sliced to order, dry cured, organic, blah, blah, blah. Doesn’t taste like the general ‘bacon related product’ you generally get in plastic in supermarkets.

    They mail order.

    Woodall’s of Waberthwaite do “real” bacon. They also cure some wonderful hams and make very tasty sausage.
