Cabelas is a Great place to check for slicers & other Great things!!
However don't pick on short slices of Bacon. My slicer could slice longer pieces than I produce with it, for a few reasons:
#1 I cut my belly slabs in 3 pieces, so the pieces fit in gallon size ziplocks for curing.
#2 Those pieces are easy to arrange on my MES racks.
#3 Shorter slices are easier to vacuum pack & store.
#4 I never make a 14" long BLT.
#5 I don't like throwing long slices of Bacon in my frying pan, only to get the center of each piece done, and the ends not done. Shorter pieces can be moved around in the pan, so the whole slice gets done evenly.
that is a good point.., I am looking to replace mine with on that has a sharpener, You say cabelas? I check it out. They always have quality.
