Best meat market for peameal bacon

I will be spending October 10th thru 12th in Stokes Bay. I am planning on stopping in Wiarton to pick up some peameal bacon. Where should I go?

Thank you,

Sullivan's Butcher Shop is right on the main street in Wiarton (just past the lights). It's excellent. A second choice would be the grocery store (IGA).

OK I'm from Ohio ... what is peameal bacon?

Do you place cheese over it? ;-)

Hi Tom;

Peameal Bacon is similar to Canadian Bacon. It is cured but not smoked. Peameal Bacon is made from pork loins weighing 12-14 Lb. They are trimmed of all the fat and the bones are removed. The term peameal comes from the ground yellow peas with which the bacon was originally coated. This ensured better curing and shelf life and avoided bacterial problems. Over the years this tradition was changed to cornmeal, due to the availability of corn.

Rather than resurrect an old post, proper forum etiquette would be to post your questions by starting your own topic .

Best Regards

When quoting verbatim from another web site, in this case http://www.bbqtalk.ca/PeamealBacon.htm , proper forum etiquette would be to use quotation marks and provide credit for the source.

LOL....would it be good etiquette to mention that, growing up in Ontario, we always called it "back bacon"...?

Even funnier...I asked my buddy at the butcher shop, (via email) he sent the reply, I posted it...never crossed my mind that he would Google it !
