        Mushy bacon
        Reviewed on July 28, 2023 by Mama cooks on smithfield.com
        I am not sure how this bacon was cured . I bought thick cut bacon but this bacon cooked up to nothing. Never really got crispy. There was a lot of water in the grease left behind. I don't like paying for water. I won't buy again.

        You can buy pig fat, you can get tallow of all kinds. When I opened a pack of bacon and there was one to two square inches of actual meat I was disappointed. I made a whole pack and just wanted a blt… barely enough for one.

        The package indicated the bacon was thick cut. The Smithfield Thick Cut bacon was not thick at all. It was just as thin as the original Smithfield brand bacon. Some of the bacon was on the salty side.

        Peeling with fingers
        Reviewed on March 22, 2023 by Not Thick on smithfield.com
        I have never ever had to peel every inch on the bacon then on the last package I bought. The supposedly thick sliced weren't thick enough that it crumbled beneath my fingers trying to separate it. I had to wash hands 3x to get it out from under my nails. Please make this thick slice like it was in 2022 and beyond

        thick bacon that wasn't thick
        Reviewed on March 14, 2023 by temple on smithfield.com
        This is the 1st time I have bought your bacon. I like thick cut. This however is NOT thick cut. If it was any thinner I would be able to see through it. It was hometown original thick cut. It was only thick cut in someone's mind sorry to say. I LOVE the semi-boneless hams and try to get thm whenever I need one but it is getting harder to find them.

        We usually buy Smithfield but we are disappointed this time. At minimum, 1/3 of the bacon (thick cut) was a block of fat with even more fat throughout. There was so much gristle we had to use scissors to cut it.

        I had a bad experience, 95% fat on a package of Thick Cut Bacon, which I brought to Smithfield's attention. They addressed it and I went and purchased more and it was great! I surmised the package with the 95% fat was a fluke and I have returned as a regular customer.

        Tastes great, but low quality!
        Reviewed on June 10, 2022 by Lyn from FL on smithfield.com
        My recent cooked pound of thick cut bacon was very tasty, which is why 3 stars, but there was so much fat and the shape of each the slices was very odd. There was also a tablespoon size pile of meat slivers that ended up cooking into bacon bits. I think the package was made from either a very poor cut of meat or an end piece. Now I am sorry I bought more than one package. Regardless, for the price paid for each 1 lb package of bacon, I would have expected better quality. If Smithfield wants to see pics, I'd be happy to share them, just tell me where to sent them.
