Maybe not gear, but it's food...
“err... except in Crazy Mike's case...
Anyhoo, I see Oscar Mayer is now putting out a package of 15 slices of bacon, pre-cooked. Can be kept without refrigeration (although you should refrigerate after opening, it says, FWIW)
Just put in a skillet for 4-5 minutes, the package says.
So while I don't cook at all -- and maybe there are huge drawbacks to this I don't begin to understand as related to backpacking -- it seemed about as great as the "tuna in a package" revelation!! lol”
“Does this have anything to do with bacon rings? (i am still afraid to ask what that is...i hope to god its not what I think it is...UGH, gutter mind) Lizs maybe you could freeze it before the trip?”
“cmb knows alot about packing fudge, iffn yer intrestd.”
“That pre-cooked bacon rocks on the trail. Lots of us use it.”
“Yeah...what Phil said :)”
Bacon...BACON...I Smell Bacon
“In some *super*markets yu can get vegan-bacon that is made of soycrap and looks and tastes like bacon...and keeps much better than bacon.”
“Wanna hear something funny? Hormel produces little rings of pre-cooked bacon!!!”
“Sass, you trouble-maker!!! LOL!
So, when taking this pre-cooked bacon do you re-package it into what you need for each meal? Or only take enough for the first meal? OR, is it not that picky about refrigeration?”
“Once the sealed bag is open it's supposed to be refridgerated. When I've taken it I share so I don't have to worry about spoilage. There's usually a few people who want to try it. I wouldn't take it if it was just me. Rancid bacon scares me.
Serious about those bacon rings! I busted out laughing in the grocery store...”
“lizs, you the trouble-maker!
"Packing bacon" indeed!”
“lizs, do you live under a rock? ;)
This precooked bacon was been around at least a couple of years.”
“That's enough bacon for you!”
“Hey, I said I DON'T COOK -- which means you're not normally gonna catch me looking at this area in the supermarket. So it's new to moi!! lol”
“You don't cook ! ? ! ? ! ?
What do you eat?
Well, I guess you were never a Boy Scout >:O”
“Tofu bacon. Yum yum.”
“You can precook your regular bacon at home.
If you can cook that is.”
“hmmmm... guess you didn't read the whole thread now, did ya?”
sing it with me...
“O I wish I was an oscar meyer bacon ring...that is what I really want to beeee eee eee
and if I was an oscar meyer bacon ring...crazy mike would be my very besssssst friend.”
“I wish I hadn't read that last post.”
“"Wanna hear something funny? Hormel produces little rings of pre-cooked bacon!!!"
I bet CMB has a pantry full of it already.
“I thought you could go to jail for keeping stuff like that in your pantries...”
“The pre-cooked bacon is okay, but I'd rather have a good thick bacon, which, as bacpac pointed out, can be precooked, ... if you can cook, that is.
Lizs: recipe for cooking bacon:
Spray skillet with Pam or similar cooking spray. Heat skillet on medium high.
Lay bacon strips in skillet. Turn with tongs or fork as it cooks.
Take out of skillet and place in plate on paper towels to absorb excess grease. Pat tops of bacon with another paper towel.
“Addendum 1 to Geo's fine directions:
Don't try this naked.”
“LMAO @ lizs!!
Geo...basically what we're cooking here is a pan full of fat. is the cooking spray really necessary? hee hee! actually, maybe it is, i don't cook bacon either.”
“Bit's addendum is important to people who might think cooking bacon naked is smart ... a six of 'em.”
“I use it because the bacon fat sticks to the skillet if I don't use the spray. The spray is non-fat, so it doesn't add anything.”
“Doesn't stick to well seasoned cast iron.”
“Iíve never tried backpacking with raw bacon, but isnít the whole purpose of salting meats to act as a preservative? Didnít they use to ship it across the Atlantic in colonial days? What about wagon trains? Is our modern bacon too low in salt to keep without refrigeration? Could you get away with packing raw bacon in weather under say 50 degrees (assuming you wanted to carry a lot of fat just to cook it off)?”
“yeah, i need to get me some cast iron. i hear non-stick pans are bad for you...release chemicals into your food, and whatnot. then again, if you're cooking bacon, it might improve it. LOL!”
“Yes, that was salt-cured pork. Much saltier than modern bacon every thought about being.
Have you ever had country ham? It was probably saltier than that stuff.”
“You're not dissin' bacon now are you lyra? My brother's diet is 90% pork products and he's got a mean temperature!”
“Well, lyra, if you come down to visit us here in the south, I will make sure to take you to one of the places that serves fat back.
It makes bacon look lean.”
“I asked my wife's favorite aged great-aunt what her favorite meal was.
Her answer? Breaded, fried fatback. Yes, fried fat. Yum.”
“thanks for the offer, chili, but i think i'm allergic to the south. j/k! ;-)
who, MOI...diss the other white meat? surely you jest. and what the heck is a "mean temperature," by the way? gangsta-speak, i'm sure.”
“Little Rascals speak.”
“Packing bacon" indeed!"
OMG - That was THE funniest thing on TT in the last 3 years!
Jerbear hooked me on bacon at TC2. Thanks dude!”

“.....Buddha Bear, hooked on bacon?
Say good bye, dude!”
“I saw that stuff at the store today I think I am going to take some out this weekend.
“you can still buy slab bacon and ham at most grocery stores around here that doesn't need refrigerating.”
“I love the pre-cooked bacon. It's great cold but toss a few strips in a Enertia bag (if you have any) and stick the bag in boiling water for a few minutes. Yummy!”
“I heard once that black bears can smell bacon frying 18 miles away...
I like the Real bacon bits m'self.
What Mike does in his free time is none of my business,
“He He He He!!!!!!
“No, not the Crazy Mike bacon rings. The precooked kind in the resealable plastic pouch.
Anyone know how long it will last after the pouch has been opened?”
“Until it goes bad?”
“LAFMO (or how ever that goes)
If you see green furry stuff on it, I would scrap it off before I eat it.”
“It lasts longer in the pig.”
Any useful answers?”
