I think we need a new poll. I have seen several non-pork products referred to as "bacon". To me, bacon is made from pork. Not turkey, chicken, corn gluten, or tofu. (Beef however is a bit of a grey area). There have been national movements designed to protect certain consumable items from being "copied" such as Cheeses, Wines, Proscuttio, etc. Why can mechanically separated, chopped, formed and pressed poultry with non poultry artificial flavors added still be called "bacon"?

Who agrees with me?

I bet you'd be hard pressed to find chicken / turkey bellies on the commodities market anywhere.

I agree. If we don't act now, we will soon hear about things like "turkey brisket" and "turkey baby backs". Lets put the pork back in bacon.

For the record, I voted "NO". I just don't know what to call it when explaining a dish that has it in it.

I voted no because it just said bacon without a qualifier. Not if we added a qualifier such as venison bacon:drooling:, boar bacon:eating: then I could vote yes, but not in this poll!!!:thumbs up::msn-wink:

Thats kinda what im sayin. If i told you we're gonna have bacon and eggs and served Boar bacon or anything but traditional bacon you would ask questions like "what kind of friggin bacon are you serving us today Trav?????". Sooooooooooo anything but traditional swine fatback isnt bacon in my book.

But you still got me on the boar pork thing:tap::misbehaving:

Some of you may think its funny now, but just wait until your wife calls you up, and asks you to pick up a rack of turkey babybacks on your way home, or you go over to your sisters house for brisket, and when you get there, find out its made from corn gluten, fermented soy and sprouted grain. Its a very slippery slope we are being pressured into.

Troublemaker!

There are forms of non- traditional bacon, but are usually made with pork parts. Buckboard bacon is one but more reminds me of "Canadian Bacon" ... I am fully opposed to bacon made out of Canadians

40 responses, and not a single one in favor of calling bacon flavored turkey product, "bacon". I think that speaks highly of the caliber of members we have here.

Perhaps we should have a Q Joint proclamation: Non pork containing bacon flavored products shall not be labeled "bacon".
