That was my point.  If they had proper bacon here, you wouldn't have to add oil as the fat would render properly.

2 issues: most of it is wet cured and that is why you get a milky white fluid that renders out and they don't use pork belly to make bacon.

Hmm...I don't remember white stuff coming out. It's more that not much comes fat comes out even if you start with a cold pan. It just starts to get burnt on the edges rather than doing what I expect. Adding a tiny bit of oil gives me bacon like I want. It is smoked.
The usual. American girl meets British guy. They fall into like, then into love. Then there was the big decision. The American traveled across the pond to join the Brit. And life was never the same again.
