I do. :shrugs:

I don't like it. So I don't eat it.

Yes. Without fat it is like dried up old ham.

Yes, the fat gives it flavour.

YANBU

I strip every single bit of fat off

Then I eat it slowly...savouring every last bit.

Yanbu. I do too. It's horrible when you get your teeth stuck on a stringy bit of fat.

YABU if you take it off before you cook it.

YANBU if you take it off after cooking but before eating.

Although frankly bacon should be cooked so the fat renders/crisps and is just about the most delicious thing in the world. Flabby warm bacon fat is hideous.

I cook it with the fat on and then take it off to eat the bacon

I take it off if it's not totally crispy. If it is, I eat it.

YADNBU. Nothing worse than fatty bacon. Yack. Give us the crispy bit any day!

I agree, bacon fat should be crispy and not stringy.

The only way to eat bacon fat is if it's crisped to fuck. Any kind of fat on meat gives me the boak but I can do crispy bacon fat. I come from a family where everyone else is happy to suck down flabby fat on meat. God - getting nauseous just writing that!

If it's cooked properly it's the best bit.

Twatmagnet that is part of the reason I'm now a non meat ester (not vegetarian) just non meat eater. That and eating white floppy chicken skin from a boiled chicken. Vomit!

My opinion is each to their own, I couldnt ever have ate it if it was white or chewy but if it went really crispy then ok.

Floppy boiled chicken skin? That's beyond boakworthy! I eat very little meat for exactly the same reasons. Actually what really did it for me was finding several bits of tube in a pack of mince and it wasn't cheap mince either. I can never ever eat mince again unless I mince it myself!

I love the skin on bacon, chicken but I'm on a diet. sad
