Thick or thin?

How do you like your bacon?  Thick or thin?  Crispy or have some give to it?  Regular or do you like the flavored ones (BIL likes maple flavored bacon)?

Personally, I love a thick cut bacon that's been cooked crispy.  It's harder to overcook (cooked so crisp that it just seems powderdy) and seems to have a better flavor.  I also like to go with applewood smoked bacon.  It doesn't seem to impart much distinct flavor, but it just tastes better overall.

I'm not a big bacon person. I guess, if I had to choose: thick cut, kinda floppy, and regular.

Definitely thick and slightly crispy. Sometimes I like to cook it in the oven, but I think it tastes best cooked in the pan. I save my bacon fat to fry stuff in too.

I'm very picky. Actually my stepdad makes awesome bacon. Thick and not too crispy.

I like my bacon barely cooked. It's really weird and even I admit it's disgusting. If I wasn't afraid of worms, I'd eat it practically raw. I'm so weird when it comes to meat.

 In between. I don't like it so thin it's see through, but I am not a an of it being a chew toy it's so thick either lol. I like it just regular. Gwaltney is my favorite packaged bacon. I have been eating turkey bacon for a few years now and I miss the real deal lol.

Oh, I'm happy just having any bacon.  However, when I'm making the choices in the grocery store, I consider more than just the price tag.

 I like mine basically that way too. I want the fatty parts nice and soft and the red parts just barely firm enough to need to chew. So long as it's cooked hot enough lol. I don't like crispy bacon one bit lol.
