Our local Bashas grocery store here in Flagstaff has some outstanding bacon with a great price. It’s apple wood smoked, big thick slices and not center cut. This bacon is also very cheap at 4.99 a pound; Not a sale price just the everyday price. It is found at the butcher counter. It would be even better if it were sliced to order so a whole slab could be had for recipes but they get it already sliced.
This bacon is also available as ordinary cured, but the apple wood smoked has a wonderful flavor. You can smell the smokey aroma as soon as its unwrapped. This bacon is really good just all by itself as breakfast slices. Also very good as a burger topper because of the nice smoke flavor. The quality and low price make this one of my all time favorites.
