Wonder if he can cook bacon. This is the real test of a master – nicely crisp without a hint of burn. A delicate balance that takes years of practice.

Or about 4 and half minutes in a 1100 Watt microwave oven for two slices.

You're not fooling anyone, GM! Those years of practice were a just a cover for the preparation and consumption of Mass Quantities of fried pork flesh! Admit it, you're a CONEHEAD!

Nothing fancy needed. Nice big joint of shoulder pork. Small ones dry out. Rub plenty of salt into the skin, score deeply. 200C for half an hour or so until skin is just about to crisp. Turn heat down to 160-175 for a couple of hours, then back up to 200 for the crackling to develop.
What's not to love?

Love pork; despise crackling.
Love bacon; despise crispy fat/ rind.
Do I need professional help?

No – you're just Jack Sprat. If you don't already have one then you may need a wife

so really where is this world where everyone is a yuppie????
I have a 15 year old car(ford escort) that I got for free.
most of my stuff is 20 years old, I have a cell phone that will only make phone calls (that took some work) and I still joke about people being brain dead yuppies.

Urrgh, crispy bacon, urgggh
Overcooking bacon until it resembles bacon flavoured crisps seems to be a US thing. Real bacon is lightly browned with nice pale and soft rind.
Place in a floury white roll (add butter for extra coronary points) with a good dollop of HP sauce. Job done.
I also don't like cracking, good way to crack a tooth.
Strangely my wife likes both crackling and burnt bacon (what she calls 'crispy'), so maybe it is a Yorkshire thing too. She does have terrible teeth though.

Well, for a start you need to be young to be a yuppie. We are wargamers, so by definition, old.
