    And now, we can turn this into a bacon thread.
    Tilapia worse than bacon
    Farmed Tilapia may be less healthy (healthful?...healthsome?...whatever!) than bacon.

    oh and the way...... it is because of the farmer that they feed them man made feed. Bad feed= bad product.

    Of course Tilapia is worse than bacon -- bacon is, after all, better than everything else.

    I'm going to try making bacon myself. A local Asian market sells raw pork bellies, and I've got the rest of the stuff.

    I just have one question -- how do you slice it thin enough without a real slicing machine?

    Put the pork belly in your freezer for a bit before you slice it. Plan on a thicker cut than store bought. yummy. also check out Alton Brown making bacon. He has a show on it. I bet you can google it.

    You can pick up some slicers on craigslist for $25-50.

    one thing to consider..... homemade bacon is very different then store bought bacon. Country style bacon.... what used to be the norm, was slice by hand and thicker then store bacon. Should never be paper thin like you see at the store. Now a days, most people expect bacon to be crispy crunchy but that is not how they ate it traditionally. Very simular to breakfest ham steak. Thicker cut.
