    if you ever get up to Michigan

    Checkout “Tony’s i75” in birch run just south of Saginaw. Order the side of bacon. Be amazed.

    @jamespmack i guess I've always called it Canadian bacon even though it does look like ham.

    I found this to be a interesting read. Sounds like you don't even call it Canadian bacon up there.



    Americans love Canadian bacon. But if you were to go to Canada and order Canadian bacon, you may get a few funny looks. It turns out, our northern neighbors have another name for the delicious, savory treat.

    So, what do Canadians call it?
    There are a few names for Canadian Bacon north of the border. Some of the most common ones include back bacon and peameal bacon. Why peameal bacon, you ask? Well, according to Kitchen Project, the name came to be because "manufacturers would dry and grind yellow peas into a meal and pack it around the meat to help preserve it." However, after World War I, when cornmeal became more readily available, it replaced the dried peas, but the name stuck.

    How is it different than American bacon?
    First of all, American bacon is smoked, which gives it its distinctive flavor -- Canadian bacon is simply cured, and not smoked. Canadian bacon is more like ham and comes from a different part of the pig. As stated on The Kitchn, "American bacon comes from the fatty belly of the pig while Canadian bacon is typically cut from the loin." Another difference? Livestrong.com points out that "Canadian bacon is usually sold fully cooked and has less fat and fewer calories than regular bacon."

    Nice, I'll write it down.. :thumbup:

    Unfortunately, I don't know much about where any of the good stops are. Been trying to learn from y'all.. :eek:

    All the trucking I done before this year, & half of last was with my woman & dog. I'd say we spent 75% of them nights in hotel/motel. We'd do most are eating at the restaurants around them, & have the leftovers for lunch the next day. Now that she's been sick, & dog is too old, I'm out on my own. The bank grows a might quicker not throwing so much $ away to sleep, but need to find better spots to eat/sleep other than the major suck stops..

    LoL meant to write truck stops but I think that came out right.. :)
