Dude Changes Name to Bacon Double Cheeseburger

MY LIFE WITH BACON continues this week, leading with a story about a crazy dude who changed his name, and some Nueske's bacon.

BACON IN THE NEWS

Yes, you read the headline right. But this might be a surprise: the guy is from the UK.
"Sam Smith, from Muswell Hill, changed his name by deed poll to reflect his love of the food after a night in the pub."
THIS WEEK'S BACON is Nueske's! Cherrywood smoked. Beautiful packaging just in time for St. Patrick's day.

The 12 ounce package produced 12.1 ounces of uncooked bacon, which yielded 4.3 ounces after cooking. The bacon made only 100ml of rendered fat.

This batch was a lot sweeter than I remember. I cooked it in the oven at 400 degrees; came out properly done without all the fuss and muss of stovetop cooking. I think this batch was just average and a big disappointment... especially since I've always rated Nueske's very highly.
