I love bacon. I prefer the thicker sliced varieties, but it is all good. Unless it is burnt to a fucking crisp. Doing so is like unto blasphemy. Chewy with a little bit if a crunch is my favorite, but crispy and crunchy are good, too. However, charring it to the point where it has been reduced to base carbon is just plain wrong.
Unfortunately, that seems to be the preferred method of the majority of fast food restaurants in the area. I have recently consumed products containing bacon from Bojangles, Biscuitville, and Sonic. While consuming each, I thought I was going to break a fucking tooth. Hardees gets it right more often than not, and what Wendys puts on their bacon burgers is cooked properly – I’m just not a fan of their Applewood smoked recipe.
Note to restaurants: If you’re going to serve bacon, at least make sure it is still recognizable as such when it gets to the customer.
