Even a bacon expert can't say anything bad about cheap or expensive bacon. Because it's bacon.

Did I just see him eat raw bacon?!! I wouldn’t even eat bacon cooked. A pig eats it’s own poop. It is a filthy animal
As a Canadian I don't even recognize "Canadian Bacon" B as Canadian Bacon.

There's nothing Canadian about Canadian bacon. It's a bastarised crappy version of peameal bacon.
Russell Chapman Esq.
After watching this video I'm not sure he is a bacon expert. In mainland Europe they don't do bacon, speck is not bacon, in the UK you can get dry cured, naturally smoked bacon without the nitrates if you go to a real butcher shop.

When I get bacon from work I prefer the center cut for breakfast or wrapping, but I love ends for snacking and anything that requires bits of bacon.

WTF, you DO cook English bacon. You have to. You just don't cook it to a crisp. It shouldn't be crispy. If it will crack if you bend it, you cooked it too much.

so the expert mixes bacon up with ham.... real expert... in "europe" we fry belly bacon the same as in the US... but the Schwarzwälder Räucherschinken is usually eaten as it is. It is way too salty if you fry it in the pan. You can use tiny bits of a cheap one as an addition for fried potatoes, Casseroles, sauces and so on in the fried state.... Or would anyone of you eat fried slices of Prosciutto di Parma or Jamon Serrano??? Btw, your so called American bacon is called Bündle/Bündchen/Bundfleisch or Bauchspeck in German, and you can buy it in thicker slices (smoked or non smoked), too. But you should buy it "fresh" from a good butcher, the packed ones ar mostly gross in consistence and taste.

"Bacon expert" 1) Eating green bacon is not a great idea 2) The emulsion is the mixture used, emulsification is the process 3) Whole meat cuts can still be formed without using an emulsion

If I had to guess, he is probably a expert on Deli meats, and bacon just goes along with that.

I am Honestly happy that he got Turkey bacon wrong, because it shows that he has his priorities straight, and doesn’t eat Turkey bacon.

What's the word for snobbery for people who don't know what they're talking about? That's what I get from all those "turkey bacon isn't bacon" comments who think they have something to prove about their masculinity It's kind of ironic that it gets the fat/lean parts backwards in its coloring though

Maybe it's different out east, but as a Canadian, I've never seen that kind of Canadian Bacon in my life. But I like that kind of bacon, but I figured it was a British thing. It's definitely better that way. But I could tell Bacon Eh was better.

I have huge respect for thoses experts, but honestly, you need to pick products wich are closer to each others. As someone who's absolultly NOT a bacon specialist, i was abble to tell in less than 5 seconds wich one was the most expensive just by their looks. And this goes for a lot of others videos. And i mean, even if their explainations are interesting, the fact that me, as a completly clueless man about bacon i could tell so easily the correct answer means that it was probably not challenging at all for them.

growing up in australia we had bacon that was similar to the british stuff, but it had the full length of the streaky bacon not just a part. its long so if you;re using a fry pan you need to cut it in half. its only the last 10 years ive seen american style in your normal supermarket etc.

the first thing I look for when I'm shopping for bacon is if it's made from real cops, most people look for the word "police" on the package, but those could be fake, the real bacon always has a badge print on the back, so always look for that first

Next do prostitute expert guesses cheap vs expensive prostitutes. Prostitute A has got all her front teeth missing, a black eye, not a lot of meat on it, its diet probably consists mainly of meth and cigarettes given to her by her pimp, where as prostitute B smells of Chanel perfume and if you notice the absence of bruising on the face, and the clean presentable clothing, I’m going to go ahead and say B is probably a high class escort and much more expensive than A, your local trailer park hooker.

Surprised he didn’t know that Canadian bacon was first made in the USA and not Canada. We go to the grocery store and ask for bacon and get the same streaky processed bacon that you do. What you call “Canadian bacon”, we call what it actually is, Back Bacon, or Peameal bacon.

15:06 The Italians say Speck? Me as a German (from North-Rhine-Westphalia) pretty much never say Schinken, I (and everyone I know) says Speck.
Christian H.
Christian H. Day ago
North Italians (Südtiroler) say Speck - but they speak german like Nordtiroler Austria. In the Italien speaking Part of italy they would say pancetta or lardo but to be honest that is not the same as german or tyrolean speck.
