I bought some Smithfield bacon and fried it up… And it left a sticky, gooey, plastic-like substance in my pan which almost ruined the pan. If it’s doing that to my cookware, I hate to think what it’s doing to my insides. It may be meat-glue, or it may be some other additive for taste or preservation. I don’t know what it is, but I will never buy Smithfield bacon again.
I purchased this bacon based on price and packaging. It appeared to be a nice thick bacon. When preparing I realized after opening the package it was very thin, almost to the point of being hard to handle. Holes in the "meat" part. Flavor was nice after cooking in the oven. Overall as expected for money but when affordable I would choose a better product.
Bought this ham & couldn't see the product because the price tag was placed over the end of the ham so I couldn't tell that the ham was full of fat & gristle. If the price tag wasn't placed there & I could see what I was buying I wouldn't have bought it and I'm sure that is the reason the price tag was placed there. Won't be buying the Smithfield brand again.
I purchased a Smithfield bone in ham for the first and last time. I am definitely not one to write reviews but that was the grossest meat as far as fat I have ever encountered in my 33 years of life. 17 dollars for maybe a half of pound of meat and pounds worth of fat and slime. The little bit of meat a family of four had to share was so salty and nasty no one could eat it. Needless to say we were veggie eaters for the night. I don't recommend this at all unless you think trying to chew a wad of fat and digging for meat is tasty. NASTY????
We purchased a Smithfield ham for our Easter dinner and when we cut into it there was a hard fiber substance all through it, a large L shape bone bone and some kind of white gooey slime. We could not even slice the thing. I sent an email to Smithfield with pictures and never received a response. Not so much as a "Sorry we ruined your Easter dinner."

Spiral ham fell apart when I took it out of the package! This is the first time this has ever happened. I had to tie the chunks, pieces and slices together before roasting it in the oven. Flavor is good, however. There was no plastic insert over the bone either, as has always been present in years before.
Smithfield bacon is very tasty however it cost more than the average bacon and in this economy although it is the better brand people tend or I should say I will buy the most cost effective brand even though I prefer Smithfield.
This is best of the best flavor. A little pricey but worth it. Love it. Either online or in the store I purchase both ways. You have got to get this bacon.
The regular bacon is cut way too thin. It cooks too fast and is inconsistent in thickness. The fat content is good - a lot of solid meat areas within the bacon and great taste, but please...a pound is a pound. More slices cut paper thin are not better. Or at least identify it as extra thin cut.
Bought this beautiful half ham hardwood smoked for Christmas dinner. Cooking instructions were well hid. Didn't see them until I happened to look under wrapping. Followed cooking instruction as listed. There was no warning on the amount of salt content on any of the wrapping. I am on a low salt diet because of heart problems. I felt there would be a little salt, but when I prepared slices on a plate for the wife and I, it was like biting into a salt block. My wife who likes a little salt could not eat it either. Put in a big pot, covered with water for two days changing water every day, which helped get rid of most of the salty taste to where you could actually taste the ham. It was a beautiful looking ham. The wife and I are retired and on SS. It took a small chunk out of our budget. Thank GOD we had other food to eat for Christmas dinner.
