Oh, Washington Post. You truly know how to tug at a dude’s heartstrings. And while the WaPo‘s recounting of this AP story doesn’t necessarily have anything to do with Father’s Day, by god, they put it in the title.

So, ladies and gentlemen, I give you the greatest Father’s Day gift ever: home-cured bacon.

And as they mention in the opening line, most people think that it’s a daunting task for the average dude to cure his own bacon. Evidently, the hardest part is finding a butcher that can secure an uncured pork belly for you.

Well, what are you still here for? You’ve got to get that pork belly going if you want to give your dad some homebrew bacon for Father’s Day!
