    Back bacon can be juicy and crispy with enough fat to be lubricated and enough meat to be tasty.

    It needs to accompany a drippy egg or two, an almost burnt tomato halved and fried in the bacon fat.
    A slice of bread golden brown shallow fried in the same fat, washed down with a cup of hot tea.

    I thought I knew more than this until I opened my mouth

    Bacon's best when it's slightly burnt.

    That is a great article.
    Though the only time I have seen Canadian Bacon like they picture is in the US.
    In Canada, at least around Toronto and Southern Ontario, Bacon appears to be more like the loin and belly stuff in the third pic.

    One other point. In the states, most pork descends from the hogs brought over by Spanish, German and British colonists. The wild hogs of North America are feral descendants of European hogs.
    In the Southwest we have a native species called Javelina, or Peccary, but they do not contribute to the domestic food stock.

    Here in The States, the Loin back is considered far too desirable a cut to 'waste' on Breakfast.
    It may not be so much that I've conceded your point as that you just can't hear me rolling my eyes.

    And Marmite, of course. After all, it is banned (from retail) in some countries.

    I also know a German, connected with a choir in Kornwestheim, which we are twinned with & whenever anyone of our choir goes over to stay with him he asks that they take over a couple of bumper packs of Walkers Crisps.
