Bacon Ends

5lbs of bacon ends for $7. You can't lose!

Surprisingly little known, despite the hurricane of hype and mania surrounding the whole bacon meme on the Internet, bacon ends are the trimmings left over from when a slab of smoked pork has been run through the slicer.

Because they're trimmings they're considered scraps, which is preposterous when you look at the big thick chunks of meat and fat that you'll find in a package of bacon ends. Sometimes you'll end up with a veritable BACON STEAK. If that's not the Holy Grail of bacon, The Gorilla doesn't know what is.

The good news is that because they're considered scraps, grocery stores sell them CHEAP. The bad news is that bargain hunters know this and you have to get to the store pretty early before someone else cleans out the meat counter.

How does it taste? Like bacon, obviously. Yummy!
