New Video on Using Yoders Canned Bacon — 19 Comments

  1. Thanks, Jack. I have been curious about this product. Having a case of this on hand makes sense.

  2. Thanks for the tips. Got a case of this last week from Safecastle. Will buy more. You should also check out the canned cheddar cheese Vic is selling. Got it with the bacon and tried it right away. Excellent stuff!

  3. I haven’t watch this video yet (waiting until Wifey is available to watch also) but I’m hoping that at some point in the video, Max jumps up there and grabs a mouthful of that wonderful bacon.

  4. what a great idea. and i hate all the grease splatters from cooking bacon. im sold. thanks for the video jack.

  5. Don’t think I can get this in Canada
    When I worked in Boston Jack, I found canned bread, which I never saw in Canada either.

  6. Not to pick Jack, but it contains Sodium Nitrite, same stuff that is in ‘curing salt’ that I use for my Jerky. You had reservations about Nitrites. The curing salt is 6.25% Sodium Nitrite. Or is the amount in Yoders significantly less than that?

  7. Jack,

    I’ve never had enough Bacon left over to store, I usually eat a whole pound myself, that’s why I was curious about the storage life in a fridge.

  8. @Brent, good point and this is how I feel. When I buy bacon or ham in stores if I can get nitrate or nitrite free I do it, if I can’t just as I breathe air I understand my body is resilient and capable of dealing with SOME things that are “bad for me”.

    When I make something I can control what goes in it. Since I can make jerky or biltong that is just as good and just as long storing with salt as I can a substance like nitrate or nitrite I don’t do it.

    I am not a health nut and don’t claim to be, I just avoid things that make sense to avoid where and when I can. Bacon is some good stuff and canned bacon is a good storable. So I use it but I don’t go around trying to live on it. We open a can about once every other month to keep some rotation going on and we use it for camping and the like. Make sense?

  9. @Hraz a couple weeks or so in a fridge in a zip lock bag but if you eat a pound strait down it ain’t going to matter.

  10. Yes it does Jack, thanks for the reply.

    Now, where in hell do I get this in Canada, I like the idea as an adjunct to my supplies. No need to fill the freezer with bulky bacon

  11. UGH!!! Micro wave? Put it out in the sun for a few minutes under glass & it will do better!
    (watch the cats tho)

  12. Hey, Jack. I was looking around for pre-cooked bacon like Yoder’s and found that the pre-cooked from the supermarket is actually less expensive; however, it is not shelf stable and it takes up much more space. In order to get in the same price range, you really need to buy a whole case of Yoder’s.

    Just a thought.

  13. @Drew, I can’t see buying anything less than a case anyway, I generally order two when I order it. I also wait for sales.

    We don’t use it a lot, we use normal bacon mostly but about a can a month keeps the rotation going and we have opened 5 year old cans that taste the same as a brand new can.

    Can’t beat it or your preps with anything else I have ever found.
