Whats happened to the old fashion bacon? Can anyone recommend a nice tasty bacon? All the bacon we seem to get lately seems to be full of water and no taste.

We like the Hellers sensational middle eye bacon.

Have to agree with you. How do they get all that water in the bacon?

Prices are also quite a jump from one product to another. Any idea of prices with these bacon's?

You need to find a good old fashion Butchery there yddac, Cant help you up In Auckland, but theres some good ones down in CHCH.

Kiwi Heritage Triple Smoked - not the cheapest by any means but very good.

Not a butcher myself, but I did Witness the process once, where they chuck the Pork in a Metal bin, gets salted and a amount of water is added and the Bin rocks back and forth for quite a while till the meat absorbs the water and extends there profits.

get ya local farmer to chop ya a hunk of leg or pork belly for streaky. .
Place in a brine for a week and then remove for a day to dry. .
This is called green bacon... Slice it up and then "cook"/'smoke" it in your smoker. . slowly for 5 hours and you'll get that ole days
REAL bacon... . (dont worry about the greeny tinge on the rind... )
