    Every couple of months or so I purchase a 10 pound slab of bacon sent to my home in Colorado - from Alabama. I prefer to slicing it myself. The problem is the rind: occasionally it's very tough to cut/slice through. Can anyone recommend an electric slicer for this operation. It would only be used once or twice every other month.

    If you're only going to be using it a couple of times a month, it might be more economical to rent one.

    What about an electric knife? It's about the only thing I think they are good for--save cuting styrofoam/foamrubber mattress things (Ithink someone metined that in a post) haha.


    they usually run around $20. AND it WOULD do the job.




    .............just a thought.

    instead why not take it to a deli or a rest. you often go to . i am sure they would love to assist you for a modest fee? don't freeze it when you get it / get it fresh that way you can package it the way you want after it is sliced.
