    Ooooh, Chris!!! Thanks so mcuh for sharing the link for the article --
    I enjoyed reading it. I've saved it for the information and also the
    recipes! Maybe one day I'll try my hand at making bacon, perhaps? I
    think I'd be too impatient ;D It already takes long enough just to cook
    three pounds at a time.

    Sky, try using a deep fryer for bacon some time.
    Several strips take 2 minutes each to fry to crispy goodness, and it's a
    LOT less hassle and mess.

    Now that's an idea! Thanks, Om. Admittedly, I've never tried to
    deep-fry bacon before - it just never occurred to me. Considering as
    much bacon as I cook at any given time, I wonder how the increasing
    amount of rendered bacon fat/grease would effect (or is that affect???
    <G>) the original cooking oil used for the deep fry? Doesn't take much
    to get the bacon grease smoking, does it. The only times I've ever bake
    bacon is when I use a few strips at the time as 'automatic basters' for
    chicken breasts or pork tenderloins. For many years, I've cooked bacon
    on the stove in a skillet, turning & flipping the slices as needed.
    Spouse too.

    Sky, whose dutch oven multi-tasks as the deep fryer

    It cooks the fat OUT of the bacon. If you cook enough at one time, the
    deep fryer needs to be bailed! The nice thing is that, if you preserve
    it, it flavors the deep fry oil nicely for other things, if you like
    bacon flavor.

    IMHO, it's a pain in the ass. <g>

    I have a small fry daddy. Holds 4 cups of peanut oil and works
    fantabulous for bacon. Much much less messy and work intensive than
    using the cast iron skillet. Only drawback is that it's not flat:

    Those are duck eggs and gingered carrots on the side with sesame seeds...

    Just cooking bacon renders most of the fat/grease out of it. Yeah,
    makes sense the 'fryer' would have to get bailed out (duh!) <g>. Ah, I
    was just looking at the carrots ;D That was before I read what they
    were - hehhee. Double "ah" -- no wonder those fried eggs looked a
    little 'goofy' I tried fried duck eggs once <-- keyword. They
    weren't "eggsactly" bad when had a few tastes, but there was something
    about the texture I didn't find appealing somehow. Definitely different
    than chicken eggs!

    Sky, who always has bacon grease on hand for flavoring !!

    Indeed. <g> It's just that to many, deep frying bacon would seem to be
    counter-productive. But it's not. It's far faster, easier and less messy
    than pan frying! I dare anyone to try it.

    They tend to be a bit firmer. An acquired taste. Muscovie eggs. I no
    longer have ducks but the yolk to white ration was greater.
