• Bacon is made by brining and cold smoking or drying the sides, back or belly of pork. There are several kinds of bacon: Bacons made from the belly: * American bacon * English streaky bacon * Italian bacon (pancetta) Bacons made from the pork butt: * English gammon Bacons made from the back: * Canadian bacon * English back bacon * Irish bacon Bacons made from the back of a hog are much leaner, and do not taste the same as bacons made from the pork belly. Bacon made from the back of the belly are fatter than bacon made from the front of a belly. Because it is cured, bacon tends to keep for a very long time.
