Bacon Slicer???

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Does anyone have/use/recommend a bacon slicer?  There's a local place here that will do it, but they want $1 per pound to slice it.  I have been using my 10" slicer, but I want a more uniform and consistent product.

What slicer do you have....  a 10" knife ???.....    Most 10" meat slicers will do a great job... Partially freeze the belly and maybe try the serrated knife if you have one....   Or sharpen the blade....

It's a power slicer.  Rotary?  I don't slice by hand.

Is your blade sharp? Some slicers dont have built in sharpeners and if yours doesn't your blade probably needs sharpening.
As mentioned above, put your bellies in the freezer for a hr or two before slicing.

Slicing bacon with my slicer isn't the problem.  I want to slice a whole belly at one time.  The butcher can do it but the machine is huge and not something one guy could do for the periodic bacon slab.
