I feel I need to take this opportunity to explain "Canadian" bacon.
Here in Canada, we don't call it Canadian bacon, but rather "Back" bacon. It is the pork loin that has been brined and smoked as you would with regular bacon which of course, comes from the belly of the pig rather than the back.
If you watch Strange Brew (and you should) you'll hear Bob say the following during the court scene..."I'll have a toasted back bacon...hold the toast".
So, "Canadian" bacon is back bacon (not ham which is from the leg rather than the strip loin).
Bacon comes from the belly regardless of where you live.
Turkey bacon is an abomination before God which should be outlawed.
That concludes today's Bacon class.
