You ever cook it in the oven? Put some cooling racks in a baking sheet and you will end up with fantastically crispy bacon every time.

Yep, I do oven it now and then. Prefer my bacon less crispy, though.

We had a bacon wrapped turkey with bacon stuffing last thanksgiving 8-)

Chicken breast fillets wrapped in bacon stuffed with a bit of swiss cheese is a regular dish around here.

Why does everyone think that a roast or prime rib have to be so pink?

Just asking, I guess I like my cow dead when I eat it.

well, why do you think it has to be more done?

I like about medium, closer to medium rare when it comes to steak and rib-eye roast like this (prime rib -> subset of ribeye roast)

It's juicy, tender, and wonderful to eat.

I'm a medium or medium/well kind of guy. Depends on the meat. I don't like mine mooing, but I don't like it crispy either.

Well as stated before, I like my cow dead before I eat it.
I just thought there was some special reason why chefs etc feel its a good idea to serve half cooked food is all

Just having a bit of fun, no harm meant by returning the question. Really I prefer my steaks medium to medium rare, theoretically the closer to about 130 you get internal temp wise the juicier, and more tender a steak will be.

This guy however, tends to venture closer to a medium/medium well side: http://www.gilttaste.com/stories/5442-a ... her-s-view

So you know, always a matter of taste, really. Have you had a good medium steak lately? Hot pink center? I'd take that over well done on almost every steak I've eaten, but everyone has preferences. I for instance can't handle eating beans, the texture doesn't agree with me, so I understand that not everyone would love a medium rare or rare steak. As a bonus I grill'em however the folks eating with me would like'em ;)

grilled bacon is the best do it all the time and even fresh bacon from the butchers shop and then do a dry smoke with apple and hickory chips keeping smoke temp to about 100-125F it is the best specially using the double combination of smoke chips. I do a lot of smoking in the summer time I think that anything well besides a good steak......

Depending on the cut and quality, I prefer my beef anywhere from still twitching (Prime Porterhouse) to almost cremated (cheap Hamburger)

A good cut of ribeye? Let it come to room temp and a quick introduction to a hot grill.

I'm with you. I consider myself a man's man. I have done some questionable things in my life, that lack reason and are strickly testosterone drivin. But I can't bring myself to eat raw meat. Be it sushi or prime rib. We have evolved beyond that.
