Question Butcher Speak

I want to see if I can get any of the local grocery store butchers to cut me some English style back bacon. How should I describe the cut to them? What is the actual terminology to use?

Thanks,
Jeff

I have an english store about 1 mile from my house that sells English (Danish) bacon...the real thing! Got 2 packs earlier today.

The closest I've seen in US terms is Canadian Bacon so maybe if you tell them you want it cut like that?

Or you can order it from here:

Williams says they use pork loins. See

http://www.britishbacon.com/britishbacon.htm

and this page suggests this is where Canadian bacon is cut from

Will the pork be cured for bacon usage?

I believe the actual cut is called a Wiltshire cut, but I could be wrong on that.

I think something along this line would suffice

"Can I have some Bacon that doesn't look like or taste like the Burnt Crap that you Americans normally dish out?"

Do you think that would go over well?

Jim.

I bet my butcher $50 he could not reach the meat on his top shelf.
He refused the bet claiming the steaks were too high

================================================== ==

A Man had lost his voice, and all he could manage was a whisper. He goes to the Doctor, who duly diagnoses the problem and prescribes some medication for the man.

"Oh and by the way" says the Doctor" eat plenty of Ice-Cream. It will do your throat the world of good"

With that, the poor man marches off to the pharmacy, collects his prescription and then heads down to the local Dairy Queen for some Ice-Cream.

"Can I have an Ice-Cream?" whispers our ailing man

"Crushed Nuts, Sir?" asks the clerk

"No, actually it's Laryngitis but thanks for asking" whispers the man.

Jim.
