  • 1. Turkey "bacon" is not bacon. 2. Being a Bacon Expert sounds cool but you did not have to be an expert to determine which bacon costs more. If you eat bacon then you know. 3. Bacon is awesome in any form or cut.

  • Turkey is the only meat I eat and even I don't like turkey bacon 😝

  • Where’s vinny? 😢

  • Bacon expert! Eats it raw,... “was I not meant to do that” :/

  • I thought this was going to be too long, and I did run out of bacon half way through, but I loved every second of it! I totally called that turkey bacon "A" was the cheaper one. Euro bacon is something I have never seen before, and it was great to see real Canadian Bacon.

  • I just can't get over him eating the bacon raw..

  • I feel like these videos are way too long .

  • Rice expert please!

  • The perfect job comment doesn't exi.... oh

  • PETA can't force me to bring home the bagel. It's bacon for life!

  • I want to be a bacon expert!

  • omg finally somebody made a mistake lol!

  • This might be a dumb question but are these people actually experts? Or is it more like, due to their field of work, they can be considered an expert because of how often they eat the food?

  • Please do an episode on tea.

  • Man, you can't teach that! i hope someone gets the reference

  • an episode on wine??? :)

  • Speck is not an italian kind of bacon. It's a part of pig's leg.

  • Correction.. Canadian bacon A is back bacon, or rolled in peameal or cornmeal is peameal bacon, B is ham

  • I‘m from the black forest and I can say to you, that you shoud NEVER cook that kind of bacon

  • btw Canadian Bacon is a name Americans made up. In Canada bacon is... bacon, and it's the same thing as Americans.

  • Are you happy now US-tv

  • For anyone interested, uk bacon is commonly sold in both smoked and unsmoked varieties. I can see why they went for unsmoked for the video though, as that makes it stand out a little more.

  • It's 2018! It identifies as bacon.

  • Where can I buy those last two bacons?

  • Hahaha “ let’s get in there”

  • Teacher: What do you wanna be when you grow up? Me:

  • I'm not sure why people are so concerned over what conditions the pig lived in. It was still raised to die and died an awful death.

  • Boxing glove expert... NOW!

  • where have i seen this guy before? wasn't he an "expert" of something else?

  • I find this know you can eat bacon without cooking it???

  • good video till he tried to promote socialism

  • This guy's an asshat

  • Anyone know how many times he said bacon?

  • he just ate raw pork.

  • Wait this is the meat expert guy

  • He gave the definition of bacon and they gave him turkey clap clap

  • People always worry about raw pork I'm more confident cooking pork then chicken and I've cooked chicken before

  • 3:25 he ate it raw-ish 😲

  • Drinking game: take a shot every time he says bacon

  • I guess my mother was right after all, I am an expert in everything... Annoying, but mothers tend to be right then, don't they?

  • "The greatest bacon memory of the year" That's a phrase you don't hear everyday.

  • Congratulations you’re the first to get one wrong

  • How am I gonna take this guy seriously when he’s wearing that hat

  • Crispy bacon is the equivalent of a well done steak

  • Guys, if you want to strech your content, just dont call a meat expert a bacon expert...

  • This is my dream hobby

  • I'm glad he's back :)

  • Why cook both of them in the same pan???

  • Canadian bacon is a type of smoked meat, not a default of bacon in Canada. Here in Brasil we call it "lombo canadense defumado" as it use the loin. It's like a "smoked loin Canadian style".

  • The more authentic the meat looks... the more expensive XD

  • Bacon expert, yeah me too I ate a lot of bacon in my time.

  • bacon expert - "all types of bacon are good" , seems legit

  • Is a bacon expert : Doesn’t know what turkey bacon is

  • There are people who specialize in children, there are people who specialize in art, but *THIS* man specializes in bacon. 👏

  • All of these tests are quite easy to guess based on looks. I always get all of them right in a matter of seconds. However I do not know the backgrund information like they do, which I guess makes them experts in a way.

  • Excellent series, only issue I have is that he says the UK bacon took the best of American and Canadian. We did bacon first so...

  • I want a bacon suit. How do I go about it - should I just eat myself into a permanent one?

  • Who in their right mind "loves turkey bacon"? Sad! People like that should be put to sleep ... o.O

  • What about beef bacon?

  • I just finished sous vide-ing an imported Japanese pork belly for 36 hours in a brazing liquid made of apple juice, soy sauce, aged apple balsamic vinegar, and pepper corn, and then I came here and realized I should of cured and smoked it to turn it into bacon....oh well...

  • Schwarzwälder Räucherschinken is the best you have no idea.

  • Well in Germany you can eat raw bacon. Don’t know what chemicals the US puts in its bacon so that it’s not recommended to eat raw or smoked lol

  • So the grade B bacon was smoked properly and is technically better quality than the non smoked graded A bacon..? Why

  • Wasn’t he the meat expert?

    • hydra learn how to read and type before being a smartass. Now stfu

    • +JD Rome that's a dariy expert

    • hydra only because you’re a meat expert doesn’t mean you’re a bacon expert smart ass. I doubt that the cheese expert is a milk expert too

    • yeah I thought bacon was from vegetable pigs

  • I was looking for beef bacon, im surprised it wasnt in this!

  • I'm a bacon expert

  • This guy looks like your typical hipster.

  • Yeah turkey bacon isn't bacon

  • @8:10 I thought for sure you would have picked B then you went A wtf

  • Dark red meat on bacon means it's low grade. Look for light pink

  • He just eats some fuckn raw bacon

  • We Canadians call bacon B “ham”

  • bacon expert?! how do i get that job

  • I think this is the first time an Epicurious expert has made a mistake.

  • Local central Pa.butcher country (smoked) around here is $4.69 Very happy for that. :)

  • I love this dude, he's got great personality!!

  • America in one video right here 🙌🏿

  • The first person on this series I’ve ever seen get one wrong.

  • I lost interest at turkey slices, bacon comes from pigs only.

  • This is the first time I've seen one of these guys get one wrong.

  • This guy knows his bacon!

  • I have an exam in 3 hours

  • Save the grease to put a very light coat on your rounds! It causes less stoppages. You have metal on metal contact when chambering and extracting.

  • I don't like turkey sausage strips.

  • The one I've been waiting for!

  • Bacon expert is better than porn actor: no need to reload, no need big tools, no need to please audience, no need to use mustache, no need to be a fake fireman... Dream job.

  • Never mind promoting the producers, WHO does these epic backdrops?

  • The look on him seeing the turkey "bacon" 😂 He probably wanted to say "Is this an insult?" 😂

  • Heard better healthcare, that's cute

  • First time I’ve seen the ‘expert’ miss. But turkey bacon is NOT bacon so... unfair setup lol

  • pigs get gassed to death

  • I got em all right :)

  • Can we all appriciate the chalkboard art in the back. Look at the details made with just chalk.

    • +komoOoT nope its real, the art doesnt have the digital cartoon png look to it, and the straight lines are a really tiny bit wiggly like a hand drawing. And the lighting and the camera focus matches the guys face. And i can tell it doesnt have a sharp or blurry outline like if you key out an image would have or a little green reflection on his face. The art is to die for.

    • it looks like it's just a green screen with the title chroma keyed in to me lol, idk

  • Honey episode please. So much honey at the grocery store. Linden Honey, clover honey, wildflower honey, avocado blossom honey, dark honey, light honey, maluca honey or something, raw honey, spreadable honey, honey powder, honey comb, graded honey. I want an experts take on all of this.

  • This is getting ridiculous! 😅 What's next? Chicken Nuggets Expert guesses cheap vs. expensive nuggets? 🤨

  • Not to be "that guy", but as a Canadian I wouldn't have called either of those "Canadian Bacon"... To me Canadian Bacon is Peameal Bacon, no other bacons compare. "A" was at least close, but calling "B" Canadian Bacon was an abomination... I'd have a hard time even calling that "meat" lol...

    • yea lol I'm from Ontario and it annoyed me, here we just call American bacon "bacon" and Canadian bacon "pemeal bacon" lol, silly Americans

  • How does one become a bacon expert? asking for a friend.

  • Australian bacon is like the English bacon except it keeps the full piece of streaky bacon instead of cutting it in half. Each piece is huge. The even leave the rind on so you can make tiny pieces of crackling to have with your breakfast.

  • It bothers me how much he plays the bacon. I’d lose my mind

  • Am I the only one who felt that the letter “A” should’ve been replaced with the word “Eh?” Eh?
