    There are tastier alternatives. Widely available, just not in the UK.

    Talking of the canned pork products.....has anyone sussed out the stuff in the Polish racks in the supermarkets ? There certainly seem to be an awful lot of cans that sort of look like they're full of the bacon grill-ish.

    I used to eat brains & eggs with Daddy when I was a wee little guy. I think ours were freshrathet than tinned though. That said, I have seen them tinned here occasionally.

    Try Spam with bacon. I've a feeling you might like it. Close to Compo Bacon Grill and available in the big Tesco's.

    Yes, Ive sussed them out. It's dog food with mucho added fat.

    I used to work with a couple of Poles, their sandwiches smelt exactly like Pedigree Chum.

    Bacon Grill trumps Spam anyday, but Spam with Garlic is worth a go. Spam with Bacon doesn't have anything going for it at all. Good to see the metal cans are still about. I used to keep a couple in the back of the car with the winter kit, but the placcy tub stuff just doesn't keep long enough.

    Canned bacon is crazy stuff, a huge load of lard and streaky bacon. Love it, but maybe only once a year.

    Why on Earth would anybody want to bait a trash fish?

    Well here in France I fish mostly for carp, barbel, tench, Wels catfish and Pike (occasionally) .. I release all my fish, so trash is relative. I look for sport and these species fight the hardest. On the riight gear the barbel is one of the hardest fighting freshwter fish.. and has a huge fillowing in the UK and Europe.

    I buy my bacon grill from my local 99p store. They pretty much always have it in stock, the only other 99p store I've been to had it too. It's Plumrose brand 99% of the time, for me that's great as I much prefer it over the Princess brand and Spam. Never been a massive fan of spam.

    I've seen Princess brand in a couple of local corner shops for about £2.50 a can. I'll stick with the 99p shop. I normaly have about 10 tins in one of my cupboards, that and a load of Heinz oxtail soup. 2 things I'm always well stocked with. Simple easy food you can't go wrong with.

    I love the stuff. Finley sliced and quickly fried. Bit of brown sauce on nice white bead. Simple hard to bead basic food.

    Also nice in noodles.

    I basicly use it as a backup for proper bacon for when I run out. Or as a nice sandwich for work.

    Spam is food of the gods, although some of the polish stuff is good as well. The chicken broth that they sell in tescos in ace
