Recently, we’ve had quite a few people call us asking for an even thicker slice of bacon than our classic sliced Applewood Smoked Bacon – which was no slouch in the thickness department as it was. In the past, we would have suggested that these individuals buy a piece of our unsliced slab bacon and cut it to their desired thickness. That’s been a really good option for some of our more hands-on home cooks but not for everyone. Not everyone wants to slice their own bacon at home. If you’re a lover of thinner strips of bacon, read no further, just go straight to our thin-sliced Applewood Smoked Bacon.
Now we have big, ultra-hefty slices of our Applewood Smoked Bacon for those of you that want your bacon even thicker than our regular rashers. We cut each slice at ¼” thick, which might not sound like much, but if you get out your ruler, you’ll see it’s extremely substantial. To give you a visual of just how thick this bacon is: it’s probably only slightly thinner than your smartphone or almost exactly the width of a No. 2 pencil. For bacon, it’s BIG.
Bacon this thick is something you can eat with a knife and fork. Some people call this a bacon steak and there are even restaurants that serve it this way, like Manny’s Steakhouse in Minneapolis. A huge, meaty piece of bacon like this also fares well on the grill and we’ve heard from many who prefer to cook it that way.
